Default help with new puppy and photos!

So just had some great news from my new puppy's breeder. She told me that she has had the litter viewed by a professional and the woman said my new baby has show potential so I'm thinking about taking her to ringcraft classes to see if she enjoys it, if so I will think about showing her. So if anyone knows anything about showing I would love to hear it.
She also said she has a very outgoing playful personality which is great as this will match Millie's personality.
She originally said that I would have to wait until the pup was 10 weeks to collect her however because her health is 100% etc it's okay for me to collect her at 9 weeks which is in 2 weeks time so I'm so excited now as I haven't got to wait long now! Unfortunately I STILL haven't decided on a name. So your opinions would be great.
It's out of: Gucci, Darcy or pixie?

Here are some photos...
Me and Millie went on a lovely walk...





Millie had loads of fun, it was a nice night and the new extendable lead came in handy!

Millie made friends with my mother in laws dog deebo! (He's the friendliest dog ever)

Does anyone else know of a chihuahua and huge dog loving each other like these two?

I ordered a crate cover for Millie


Any other ideas on how to decorate a crate?

My new puppy (Gucci, darcy or pixie?!)


So excited to get my baby home!

Also any advice on introducing Millie and the new puppy would be great
As I'm feeling a little nervous about it since Millie is used to being the only one and getting all the attention I don't want her to feel upset or clash with the puppy!

My biggest concern is getting her at 9 weeks. Yes she might be healthy but she still needs that mom puppy time to learn basic puppy manners. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Omg how cute is that crate!! So lovely millie is looking beautiful too!
Loving them pics your walk looks so nice and I'm in love with your mother in laws dog! What is he? A pit or a staff? Hes gorgeous
And if it helps I do notice a big difference within Pablos and Neevas personality Neeva was with her mother and littermates until she was 12 weeks and shes very confident and loves everybody where as pablo was taken away from his mother way too early as he was pick of the litter from the stud's breeder and he can be quite shy and scared of new things!

It was a lush walk, we walked past a cow field and Millie was like 'wow what is that!?' Standing staring at it haha! I don't actually know what breed he is to be honest! He is so friendly though, it's crazy looking at him next to mills he's huge compared to her. It's like he notices that though so he's dead gentle with her! I will bare that in mind about the 12 weeks.. Think I will wait I don't want it to negatively affect her x

I agree that 12 weeks is ideal: BUT personality, shyness, aggression is SOMETIMES genetic. I did everything right with my chi's==waiting til they were 12 weeks etc. Two of my chi's came from "breeders" and have many champions behind them. They are personality messes even though I socialized them a lot. One is a fear biter, who is much better. She tried to bite me at 12 weeks! Worked with her up the wazoo! She now comes to me and wants to lie beside me when I watch TV. If I try to pet her though she will leave. Her mother was the same way (I didn't see the mother until I came to pick her up) The second one came from a breeder recommended by a breeder in Indiana. She was in Oregon! That pup cannot bring herself to be petted except when she is IN the crate, or on the chair beside the TV. Wants nothing to do with people. Is fine with dogs. I'm not trying to scare you. I'm just saying some personalities are genetic. With you seeing the mom and other pups I'm sure she'll be fine. I led with my heart and not my head! Emotions can over rule common sense!!

She's so pretty! I love the setup of her new crate too. Well... I have 4 chi's and brought them all home at different ages. As young as 7 weeks ( first chi, didn't know better) and as late as 13 weeks ( Ava ) I have a shy puppy too ( Braxton) she was socialized to death as a pup lol, I took her everywhere as I brought her home during summer. She was around kids often, walking on the lead in busy crowds, she had my other dogs to play with etc. and she is still super shy. I wouldn't worry too much about bringing your pup home at 9 weeks as long as your breeder ( reputable breeder who knows her pups) feels it's okay. I do personally think 10 weeks is "ideal." However, I'm sure you'll be fine, doubt there will be much difference from 9-10 was lol. We all have different opinions on this as you can see. Congrats, looking forward to seeing pics and hearing the final name choice in a couple weeks.

Thank you for the advice very helpful... When I went to visit the litter I was able to see the mother and father and they both had excellent temperaments! Really friendly and outgoing and also great around Millie. After reading other people's situations I fee I have been lucky with Millie's I've never had any problems with her and I brought her home at 9 weeks x
