    Congrats Chips on your brand new little pup. :) Welcome Danny!!

    Congrats Chips!! Don’t know if you knew this, but I used to breed dogs for a living. UKC and ADBA certified Purple Ribbon show dogs. If you have any questions ( re: shots, dietary choices, paperwork, etc………fire away!

    • September 10, 2013 at 6:58 pm

      You have a varied career LP. :grin:

      LP, is there anything you haven’t tried/done? No. No. Don’t answer that. I don’t know why I have this picture of you as a young 20-something lad, but if that’s the case, you sure have done a lot in your life to date!

      • September 10, 2013 at 7:23 pm

        Lets just say on my journey sowing my royal oats (Coming to America reference) I dibbled and dabbled in all sorts of ventures…… I was even part of a company that made gourmet pickles * Wickle Pickles * http://www.wicklespickles.com/wickles-pickles/ made it into a few grocery chains…… don’t know who is running the company now. My other and most enjoyable endeavour was becoming a licenced NFL agent. (Scouting/player development/and tutoring) Ahhhhhhh…….. those were the good old days! So ya, I’ve been around the block :)

        • 34 vcprezofan2
          September 10, 2013 at 7:35 pm

          Around several blocks!!!!! I guess this means there’ll be no further need for you to go wandering when you hit 40 – you’ll already have done it all.

          BTW, I loved Coming to America – in particular the royal training scene with the sticks! :grin:

      … from glen to glen, and down the mountainside?

    • September 10, 2013 at 6:59 pm

      Exactly UT! My late Dad, who gave me my first puppy, a black Lab – a billion gazillion years ago – used to play Danny Boy on the piano, his very favorite song, from his native north of Ireland. So, Danny is being named in honored of him!

      • 41 utaustinliberal

        That’s wonderful.

      • 42 Dudette

        An EXCELLENT choice! Congratulations!

      • September 10, 2013 at 7:02 pm

        What a wonderful tribute! Danny looks so adorable, just so squeezable/huggable. Congratulations!

      • September 10, 2013 at 7:05 pm

        Just *thinking* of that song brings a tear to the eye. *sniff*

        Have you been given photography lessons on the side? Seems I recognize your “technique,” LOL. (The photos I take are more often than not blurry, so this is not criticism, just an observation.)

        Puppies just make you want to reach in and scoop them up.

        Very, very cute.

      • 49 dotster3
        September 10, 2013 at 7:12 pm

        Love that the name has sentimental meaning! Also love that song—-a great Irish pub sing along. About 2:00a.m., as I remember it. :)

      • September 10, 2013 at 7:13 pm

        Now that is touching!!! Very happy for you dear Chips.

      • 51 GGail
        September 10, 2013 at 7:19 pm

        Oh Chipsticks, that is so touching – I’m gonna cry happy tears all the way home now!

      • September 10, 2013 at 7:29 pm

        What a wonderful tribute! I had an inkling those were lab pups……… I assume they won’t be weaned off their mother until 12-14 wks. The owner will typically provide the first two sets of shots depending on the breed. Again if you have any questions feel free to ask. I suggest using NutroMax food when your pup starts adjusting……really all depends. Really happy for you Chips!!!

        • September 10, 2013 at 7:40 pm

          Thank you LP! I spoke to the owner yesterday and I was kinda like: “I WANT HIM NOOOOOOOOOOOOOW.” But he’s great, a really genuine sweet dog lover, won’t let me have Danny until he thinks he’s ready to leave his mother, and gave me so much great advice. As I said to LL earlier, this puppy’s diet will be waaaaaaay better than mine, absolutely NO cheesy puffs!

          • September 10, 2013 at 7:47 pm

            Sure thing Chips! Definitely sounds like the owner has the pups best interest at heart. 12-14 wks is usually standard unless their are any unforeseen complications…. hence the Oct. 19 tentative delivery date. If anything comes up shoot me a DM or email…….. sounds like the only problem will be the stage mom (Chipsticks) demanding to see pictures or delivery of the pup ASAP :)

          • 56 LunarSea
            September 10, 2013 at 8:14 pm

            WHAT!!!!????? No CHEESEY PUFFS????!!!!! Did he have a clue who he was talking to?

              September 10, 2013 at 9:17 pm

              Chipsticks, suggest you begin weaning yourself off the cheesypuffs, it will be easier for you to just not have them in the house! Even my kitty likes a crumbled up cheesy puff now and then!

        The tears are flowing, Chips. My Gramps, from Co. Donegal of the north, sang it to us from the time we were babes!

    You need to ask Pete Souza to take a pic when he’s not busy. And schedule a play date at the WhiteHouse and of course take a photo of his first poopie. And a self ice of you scooping. ;)

        Beautiful news, my Chips. The decision to name your beautiful new addition is so moving to me. I was thinking the night when you had the name suggestions that you would have your name without a doubt that really means something so special to you and to us here at TOD. I went back to my memory of how Bo, our First Dog was named by the family, especially. This is so amazing and beautiful as you are always, Chips.

        The songs of “Danny Boy,” are so beautiful in dedication to your “Danny.” As for the rendition shared by jacquelineoboomer, Jackie Wilson, one of the “Greats” ever. Thanks for that one. Not an overkill in any way, shape or form. What a great welcome to our TOD family.

        Are we going to plan a lovely’ doggie shower’ for Danny? Would be nice. ((((((((((((( Lots of happy days coming for our Chips))))))))))))))HZ

    A whole bunch of cuteness there. Danny is of course the most handsome fella. Chips will be singing, “Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.” Chips, do you have a beautiful Irish voice? Asking for a friend.

    Aww…. Ms Chips, your puppy is ADORABLE, congratulations! Danny is a brilliant name for him, you will be Best Friends! I am normally a cat person, but still think dogs are great. Look forward to more footage of this little guy when you get to take him home! : )))

    The New Zealand Government wants the international community to take clear steps to ensure chemical weapons are not used again in Syria, Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully says.

    “The New Zealand Government supports the statement made by the majority of countries represented at last week’s G20 meeting, since endorsed by others, condemning the use of chemical weapons in Syria, calling for those responsible to be held to account, seeking an early report from the UN inspectors, and appropriate action in response from the UN Security Council,” Mr McCully says.

    • September 10, 2013 at 7:32 pm

      Ah, I hope so DF.

      When he’d play it on the piano I’d complain that it was miserably sad (which it was), but he’d just tell me to hush and enjoy the melody.

      And I’d say, ‘why can’t you play something cheerful’, and he’d remind me of the old line about the Irish: “For all their wars are merry, and all their songs are sad.”

      So, I’d say, ‘we happily lost our battles, then sang miserable tunes’?

      And he’d say: “Yeah!”

      So, Danny is named after my crazy Da!

    Follow the link to see the 33 countries that now formally support the joint statement on Syria.

    • September 10, 2013 at 7:54 pm

      Should be noted that the coalition that formed after UN resolution 678 passed in November, 1990, had 34 member countries committed to forcing Saddam to withdraw from Iraq. We’re already at 33 and I expect that number to grow significantly.

    Just reflecting on the perfection of Danny being shared with all of us mere moments before our spectacular President speaks on one of the most daunting challenges humanity faces and how he is striving to establish solutions – without killing more people if at all possible.

    Hey Chips, congrats on your puppy and LOVE the name, especially after reading the story about your dad. My Dad sings it every so often and we’re Jew-ish :).
    May you have many happy years together. Nothing like a dog’s sloppy wet kisses and tushie wiggles to brighten your day.
