Almost Done

October 21, 2010

It’s 1:40 on Thursday morning.  Leidy still has at least one puppy to give up.  However, the first six are buzzing as they mob the lunch counter.  Puppies ranged in size from 6.5 ounces to 10 ounces.  I was surprised that two brindles produced so many reds (three of the six so far).  After the stragglers are born, I’m going to sleep.  Tomorrow I’ll get some daylight photos to share with everyone.  The puppy cam photos are courtesy of Carolyn, sitting in Oregon.  I held each puppy up to the puppy cam and Carolyn took a screen shot, then posted it.  I hope I never take technology for granted because it has absolutely changed our ability to communicate.  We are now able to share instantly — how cool is that?

    Congratulations!!! And all those reds – *swoon* – you know I have a soft spot for reds. Rufus’ sister is named Reba. I smiled when I saw Reba’s name.

    Now, try to get some sleep! Great job, Leidy – she already looks like a great mom, I snuck a peek at the puppycam.
