Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates

In Valerie's last litter we kept "Cocoa", Ch Laureate Jivara. Jivara is a milk chocolate bar made by Valrhona. If anyone has any good Chocolate names, let me know!

Those puppies are amazing - you must be having a ball with them. They are all so gorgeous. Enjoy the holidays with the best gift of all, five brand new puppies ...

Well they look definitely good enough to eat. Adorable and very content.

Santa, please give me one, just one chocolate of Kim´s box? I was a good girl this year...

I suggest brands of chocolate from Brazil:

Garoto = boy in portuguese
Cacao Show
Cacau & Arte
Chocolate Designer
Doce Cacau = sweet cacau
Sweet Bazil Chocolate
Serenata de Amor = love´s serenade
Sonho de Valsa = Dream Waltz
Bombom Bossa Nova
Cholate Premiére
Nha Benta - it´s marshmallow on top of a crisp wafer and covered by a delicate layer of milk chocolate -

Kisses from little cholates!

And yes Kim, Guará is a baby from Laramie x Cléo! Cleo is daughter of Kieffer, Paray´s Just Ray. I love this dogs, Laramie and Kieffer, them and Shadow Hill´s Blue Ridge Range, are the best shelties that have come to Brazil, in my opinion.

Pennylynn December 19, 2009 at 6:09 PM  

I really like Danelia's suggestion

Bombom Bossa Nova

AKA "Da Bom"

The first chocolate I realy like was BACI (means Kiss in italian) it's a Italian chocolate made by PERUGINA

Hope you like it,

Oh my! Such good suggestions. I'm going to have to see if they are milk chocolate or dark chocolate! :-)

I have stopped trying to pick puppies at birth, but I'm seeing beautiful necks, and am really liking what I see so far.

Cheers, Kim

BACI is a dark chocolate with whole and chopped hazelnuts. They come individualy wraped and with a love note.

I will send Baci photo for your e-mail or you can see in the link below baci-bags-p-13.html

What a clever way to photograph the puppies! They are a special gift. I am enjoying reading the other comments for names, but I sorry that I have nothing to offer.

lonfrichuk December 25, 2009 at 5:27 PM  

Great pics Kim! Love the chocolate theme, looking forward to hearing your picks!

Cathy January 2, 2010 at 8:13 PM  

Very pretty puppies! The way you present them is wonderful. I like the chocolates idea.

Found some other names to add to your already great list!

Dove (bar)
Reese (peanut butter cup)
Patty (pepermint)
Caramello (cara)
Joy (almond)


sjshelties January 10, 2010 at 8:14 AM  

I know it's not a chocolate name, but after seeing the new pups pics, and the small girl, a dessert name came into my mind, it's made with chocolate,
PETIT GATEAU (or gateaux ?)(I don't speak french, sorry)

Good luck and happy new year,
jacqueline brito
