I'm sorry you won't be getting Gilly.  Its obvious you had already fallen in love with the little guy.  But I have a feeling that female puppy is going steal your heart pretty quickly!  She's quite a beautiful girl!  My vote is for "Dory" because that movie makes me smile every time I see it!  ;D "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..."  ;D ;D

I'm sorry things didn't work out the way you originally intended.  But I believe things happen for a reason and this baby girl was meant to be yours!!  OMG look at that oh so adorable face I would just want to sit and hug her all day long!!  Congrats on your new baby.  I vote for Dory also!!

That's the very definition of good news/bad news!  I'm sorry that you won't be getting Gilligan but that little girl is so darned cute how can you resist that face??

I vote for Dory too - it's got the water connection and it just suits a Newf!

I'm sorry you aren't getting little Gilly.  That must have been hard news to hear and probably hard for the breeders to tell you.  I'm sure they knew how much you were looking forward to bringing the little fella home.

That little girl is so stinking cute though...  I'm sure she is going to steal your heart just as quickly as Gilligan did.  She has that mischevious look to her...I think she is going to keep you on your toes!!

I vote for Dory or Luna!

Well the good news is I won't have to look at Gilly's avatar much longer. That pup's adorableness leads me to distraction and I forget what I'm writing about.

The bad news is I'm guessing I'll soon have to be looking at 'Mary Ann's' avatar. No wonder I can't get any work done! :D

She is precious. She also has that quizzical head tilt and it is obvious great intelligence emanates from those eyes. How about The Professor? ;)

You gave me quite the scare too!  I'm sorry about Gilly, but thrilled that you'll be getting to bring home a baby girl even sooner.

I vote for either the names Luna, or River.  She is beautiful BTW, I can't wait to see her coming home pictures!

Ah shes as cute as a button.  If you live close it'd be best to keep her away from me.

Awwwe, I'm sorry to hear about Gilly.  But after reading the title of this post I'm glad that it turned out this way b/c I was thinking the worst.  :(

but you are right, he is going to be in the best home and that is great if you can keep in touch with the breeder and see how he's doing from time to time.

The new girl is gorgeous, I too love the bit of attitude she's showing.  I vote for Dory or Luna, both great names!

Definately Dory!!!

I love her! Dory definately had a great personality in that movie too!

I don't see how you could not love any of these precious babes!

A similar thing happened to me when I got my Tater Marie (basset)and I could not have imagined life without her. To me, she was the pick of the litter.

You are going to make great memories with little Dory! I can't wait to see her grow on BPO. Post lots of picts!
