Talking She's arrived!

We went on a short holiday to pick up our new puppy. We went to the breeders on Tuesday to see her & finalise all the details after doing some sightseeing on the way. She's adorable. And her father is stunning & her mum a cutie.
Were still having trouble finding a name & then on Tuesday night in the motel I was still thinking about a name when I said to hubby, what about Tilba. Ten - 15 minutes down the road we had lunch at a little historic village called Central Tilba. He agreed that would be a name with a difference.
On Wednesday we did further sightseeing to Bermagui ( where they made the Billy Connely movie The Man Who Sued God), Merimbula & Bega.
We went & picked her up Thursday morning. She was so good in the car. Slept all the way, except for the couple of stops we made. We took turns holding her while we ate our lunch in Berry. She wouldn't go to the toilet until we arrived home, after a 6.5hr trip.
My 2 sons were thrilled with her, saying she was sooooooooooo cute. There was mixed reactions to her name, but by the end of the night she was being called from all directions. She already sits on command & I started on drop.
I always feel sorry for puppies going to their new homes, leaving their family. She had a pleading look in her eyes on the way home I wished I knew what she was thinking.
She seems to have settled in, has gone to sleep in her crate, after meeting all our other furkids. Sootys been a little over the top & Blossom the cat watched from a distance.

You're very sweet, Monkey. I'll have to work on the pics. So far mostly taken video on my old camcorder.
I can't believe how lucky I am to get such a pretty pup. She looks, to me, so much better than the pup the breeder kept to show. Even she agreed Tilba has the better head.

She's gorgeous and what a good girl! She has beautiful markings what breed is she exactly? She reminds me of a beautiful border collie I had who used to lie under my daughter's pram and sleep outside her bedroom door!

She's a pure bred Border Collie. Quinora Lady ofthe Night. April's great grandfather is Tilba's 5x great grandfather. That's the only link I could find to their ancestry.
