Well, the puppies will be fifteen weeks old tomorrow… so I figured it was about time for a puppy picture update. 🙂 Damon and I took the Chihuahuas out into the yard while the girlie was at my parents. He kept them from mobbing me (which, if I try to take photos of them without him there, happens 100% of the time and makes photographs impossible), and I snapped a few shots of them ripping around.
So… without further ado, here is Marnie (our Champion long coat), Rooty Toot (mommy to the puppies), and Alice & Deedee (the pups):
As I’d mentioned a while ago now, we had hopes of heading out for a puppy (and people) playdate with my friend Yolanda. Unfortunately we got rained out and had to postpone. Fortunately, the weather was perfect today. 🙂 And, as promised, I tried to be less of a hovering mother hen, and more of a stand-back-and-take-photos kinda gal. So without further ado, our family playdate:
Thank you so much for having us all over Yolanda. It really was a fabulous afternoon, and a much needed break from all the overtime hours I’ve been putting in lately. 🙂 Very much looking forward to doing it again soon.
Okay, the only thing cuter than three and a half week old puppies, are three and a half week old puppies mucking about in the yard. So… how could I NOT take pictures? Seriously. I was compelled to capture their little romp. It simply had to be done.
The older of the girls, Alice is white with black spots and tan markings. Though she is older, she is the smaller of the two. She is currently weighing in at .434 kg (15.3 oz).
Alice is the more laid back of the two girls. Content to sit and be loved upon by the many who adore her. She’s happy to go exploring, but likes the reassurance that comes from knowing mommy is near by. She’s a lot like her Daddy, Ned.
When they were brand new, Deedee, our black tri-coloured puppy, always seemed so big compared to her sister. That difference is minimal now. Currently weighing .454 kg (16.0 oz), she actually looks smaller than Alice… apparently black actually is slimming.
Deedee is very much like her momma, Roo. Always busy. Always going. Always getting into something. Sure, she loves her cuddles – but they have to be on her terms or she’ll wiggle her little butt right out of there.
Today, I am mentally and physically exhausted. A perfect day to share puppy pictures – because otherwise you’d be stuck reading me grouse about it. 😉 And well, as I’m bound and determined to choose joy, this is a good chance for me to do so. While I’m feeling completely thrashed, there’s still so much to be thankful for, so much to take joy in.
With that in mind, here are a few puppy pictures!
The pictures are from the eighth, so are a few days old. But I didn’t think you’d mind too much. Will try to snap some new ones soon. 🙂 Maybe during a trip outside.
