From left to right, Josie (the one we're keeping :), Sunny (going to a good friend and her family), and Fatolini (a favorite, with a couple of families who are thinking they may want him)
Summer and her puppies in their new whelping box. The puppies are so playful now, they wrestle and try to run, then they like to crawl all over each other and their mom. She is still nursing them, and we began a few days ago feeding one meal a day, and now we're up to 3 meals per day of meat and rice. Their little teeth are all coming in sharp, I'll need to provide chew toys to help them as they teeth.
I love to sit by the fire and hold the puppies as they snuggle up and make there little grunts and groans that little babies make. The kids all hold them everyday and love to watch them play, it is such a good and positive experience for our family, and I think Summer is having fun too.
"Little Ace" is so cute! He's the stud dog owners pick of the litter, and looks just like his father "big Ace".
