The Pilot/Hannah puppies arrived this morning. Huge, tremendous thanks to Denise Waiting for volunteering to take this on for us.
Eight puppies: two boys and six girls! I believe there are seven blacks and one stripey one, though one of the pups above looks like it could be a dark brindle.
The first four born . . .
The first and the last born were the boys. We are really excited by this litter and can’t wait to see how they grow.
The last weekend of having all 9 puppies. They grow up so fast. The last few days they’ve been able to spend some time in the dog yard in the mornings and late evenings. It’s too hot mid-day. We carefully rigged shiny silver shade cloth over the exposed area of a kennel so as to be hawk resistant.
The long-suffering Hannah shouldn't have anything left, but they still try. And she lets them.
Opie: "I've got my daddy, nannee, nannee . . ."
So sweet when they're asleep.
Count down to lift-off. We have some ears that won't need much or any taping.
Oh, you again? Yes, her name has become "Opie" though we both have a tendency to call her "Oops".

Pick you up? Again? Why?
