Look at those choppers!!!


“Scarlet” or Ms. Sparkly Red was super relaxed.

 Gracie Clementine’s pups have moved into our kitchen.

They are eating Blue Buffalo puppy food and growing quickly.

Gracie feeds them briefly and then lets them play.

20171226_110726     There is a lot more room for running around now.

Puppies need room to play.20171226_111209Our one year old, Lexi is playing with the puppies. She is a Fun babysitter!!


Lexi is holding an empty paper towel tube made of cardboard.

The game is on!

20171226_111242 The simple toys are the most fun!


 This is Gracie Clementine. She is letting Ms. Yellow

have some special one-on-one time with her.


An empty cardboard box is now a “Club House”


Sleeping babies.


The quality food gives them healthy bodies and lustrous coats.


It’s a Ruff life being a puppy.


Beautiful babies all lined up.

They won’t fit in this bed for much longer.


Sweet dreams Mr. Green.

Gracie’s Pups Get Their Colors

by Margaret on December 20, 2017





This handsome boy is the “Big Boy” of the litter.


The Aqua collar is a girl and the Red and Green collars are boys.

20171219_064813 (2)

Now we can see who is eating and watch their progress.


 Where does one puppy start or end?


Sleeping beauty in the middle of her brothers and sisters.


All of Gracie’s pups have a gold ribbon sewed to their collars.

The other two litters will have different ribbon so we know who their moms are.


 An empty cardboard box is always something that interests the puppies.


 They were all very curious about this box.

Some wanted to eat it and some just went inside.

Pretty soon they will climb on top of it.


Now that the box excitement is over, let’s take a nap.


 We let this pretty girl get some one-on-one time with Gracie.

Constantly drinking

We celebrated Thanksgiving with Gracie Clementine

and her brand new puppies.

10 pups! 3 yellow and 7 black. Born November 23, 2017.

Four babies drinking

The puppies need their mother’s milk as soon as they are born.

Making a patternFour pups who are still wet, but already know where to go to drink.

Some upside downAll 7 pups hooked up at the “Milk Bar”. Some are upside down…


The three yellow pups have pink faces for now.

The faces and their little foot pads will turn black soon.

One little pup has her tongue sticking out while she sleeps.


More wrinkles on their faces. They are gaining weight every day!


The yellow female has pink face and pink feet for now.

Gracie right before delivery

This is Gracie Clementine minutes before her first puppy was born.

She was in labor all night and the first pup was born after 4am.

The Peanut Gallery

This is the “Peanut Gallery”.

All the big dogs have to wait outside our room while Gracie is having her pups.

They have been through this many times before.

Sally is always up front, next to the gate, hoping to be allowed in.

Lexi was allowed to stay.

Lexi is our 11 month old. She wanted to be with her

Great Grandmother, Gracie Clementine

and was smart to just curl up on one of the dog beds.

Lexi staying out of sight.

Lexi eventually moved onto our bed and fell asleep, while we waited for pups.

Lexi just wanted to be with us.Lexi is watching me, but staying quiet so she can stay in the room.

All the other dogs were stuck out in the hallway.

Francie Pants Will Always Be With Us

by Margaret on November 2, 2017

Francie Pants was our “Babysitter Nanna” and loved her job.

This video is from this past summer.

The puppies above were from Sammy Sweetheart.

She would let the pups climb all over her, snuggle with her,

even try to nurse from her and they were not her puppies.

Francie has left us to be with her sister Kayla Copacabana up in Heaven.

We will have cupcakes on November 15

to celebrate what would have been her 13th birthday.

We love you Francie Pants!!!
