they were tiny babies — 6.5 oz to 10 oz — and now they are eleven weeks old and ready to take on the world. Like our children, they grow up too fast. I am delighted that three of the four puppies will be off to their new homes over the next two weekends, but I also wouldn’t mind having them around for a bit longer. When Smooch, Udi, and Victor leave, I’ll have more time to work with Nola (believe me, she will require some work). I hope the people who are giving the babies homes, understand that I feed off of photos and stories about the grandpups. Planning, breeding, whelping, raising create a bond that lasts a lifetime — both the dogs’ and mine.
I’m off to court this morning, but will try to get some photos up later today.
