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.

20171219_222139

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

20171219_222119

 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.

20171217_133348

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

20171219_224052

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

by Margaret on November 28, 2017

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…

20171126_123539

The three yellow pups have pink faces for now.

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

20171126_123812 Look at those wrinkly faces.

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

20171126_123827

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

20171126_123926

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!!!
