9 Week Old Babies — and another sunrise

December 22, 2010

The puppies are 9 weeks old today.  What an enchanting 9 weeks it has been as they grew into tiny dogs, learned to bark, to wrestle, to play with the big dogs, to cuddle with humans.  Now, as I watch them bolt out the dog door to explore the great outdoors, I can only smile.  In two and a half weeks, Smooch, Udi (“Newsy”), and Victor will be off on a new adventure with their very own people, while Nola and I will begin developing our own bond.

Now, about that sunrise:

Bathed in a pink glow on the west

    7:30 PST and the sun’s not up here yet. From the rain on the patio it’s my guess that we won’t see it today. Ah well, I shall go to work and turn on my sun box. Artificial sun is better than none.

    You have the most gorgeous sunrises! I am usually heading to the office when the sun is coming up and love watching the different colors as I’m driving across the river.

    I can’t believe they’re leaving in two weeks! *sob* I hope their hoomans will send lots of pictures to keep the puppy junkies updated. I’m sad to see them go, but excited for their new adventures!
