Our yellow girl is tipping the scales at 3.8 pounds.
She is the “Big Girl” of this litter.
She has almost outgrown the scale.
This is our largest black male. He wiggles a lot,
making it hard to read the digital scale.
We love watching the puppy faces change.
They are all starting to look like “Real Dogs” now.
By next week this face will have changed even more.
Our yellow boys, Mr. Green and Mr. Black.
The puppy pile is expanding and covers more space now.
It must be so cozy and warm in the middle of that pile.
Mr. Green has had his eyes open a little longer than the rest of his litter.
Can you see the little shine in Ms. Orange’s eyes?
This little pup stayed still just long enough for a photo.
Then he wanted back with his mom.
We love it when their eyes open!
They are changing every day.
Enough photos. This one wants a nap.
Ida Mae is the proud mom of nine beautiful Labrador puppies.
She kept us busy all of New Year’s Eve.
It was the BEST way to start the New Year!!
2 yellow boys, 1 yellow girl. 3 black boys and 3 black girls.
All are healthy and gaining weight like crazy!
Can you see this little one’s tongue hanging out while he sleeps?
His face and feet pads will turn black very quickly.
Ida Mae refuses to leave her puppies, so we bring her
“Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in Bed”.
This is Ida Mae while she was still delivering puppies.
Grandmother, Gracie Clementine came in to see her new Grandpuppies.
Ida Mae is her daughter.
Earlier in the morning Ida Mae was trying to get comfortable on the couch.
Tina is telling her “You can’t have your puppies here.”
After the couch, Ida Mae decided maybe the king size bed
would be “Just Right” for her.
We had to show her the whelping box that was waiting for her.
This whelping box has had many litters of puppies born inside it.
It gives the mom a secure feeling. We bring it into our bedroom
when we know puppies are coming.
The puppies will stay here for four weeks.
This is Ida Mae’s First Born! He is a little yucky looking
but Ida Mae cleaned him up gently.
We are at 3 pups at this point. 1 yellow boy, 1 yellow girl and 1 black girl.
All they want to do is eat!!!
Last night Sally and Sammy Sweetheart were allowed to come in
and meet the new pups. They like watching from the bed.
Everybody wants to see the babies!!!
They will all be involved eventually with Ida Mae’s pups.
Brodie Good Boy turned 1 year old on December 21.
His mom is Angie and his dad is Big Al.
Birthday Parties always include singing and cupcakes all around!
Brodie sits next to Cooper and waits for his cupcakes.
Sammy Sweetheart feels she is “above the crowd” and sits on the stone table.
Everybody knows they must wait their turn.
All eyes on those cupcakes.
We have our Christmas tree up on a table and “protected” by a small puppy fence.
Otherwise, those Labrador tails will knock it down.
Can you see our little Pug, Jazz?
She makes sure she gets her own cupcake.
Brodie is in the bright blue collar.
Cooper is in the more green collar. The boys stick together.
Mike has their undivided attention now.
Saturday was still sunny and dry,
so we had a lot of play time outside.
Two sisters have fun chasing leaves.
Time for a big drink of water.
What do you want to do next?
Lily had everyone’s attention.
Lily had to round up the last little straggler. Time to go inside.
“Flying Ears” are the BEST when they are running!!!
Come on puppies. Time for dinner.
This little beauty wants to keep exploring.
This is the “Line Up”
Mmmmmmm, your hand smells like food!
Lily’s puppies were being selected last week. We have a few puppies
waiting for the “Perfect Family” to find them.
These two visitors had a hard time choosing their future pup.
One of Lily’s pups has been reading the paper.
He likes to keep informed.
Yes, I am cute and I know it!
Let’s see how much this beautiful puppy weighs.
Mr. Orange gets his first Veterinarian check up along with the first set
of puppy shots for all of Lily’s 10 puppies.
Grandmother Jeannie with her daughter Lily
taking a break outside in the sunshine.
Lily’s pups have plenty of room to run around
and stay safe at the same time.
Our granddaughter is sharing secrets
while Lily manages a few of her pups nearby.
“I love you!”
Lily’s entire litter has been “Child Inspected and Approved”.
They have been playing and been played with on a regular schedule
and promise to keep on playing!
All ten little Labradors have been given LOTS OF LOVE!!!
All of our puppies have left with their new Forever Families.
This handsome boy has many adventures awaiting him.
We are very happy for everyone.
Each puppy seemed to recognize their new families as they arrived.
Then the snuggling began!
A photo from his new home and wearing his new bling.
We know we have given each pup a strong foundation to begin their lives
and be the Best Dogs they can be!
This pup was totally relaxed.
Gracie and Angie kissed and cuddled each puppy as they left.
We have received photos of some puppies who are all settling in very nicely.
New best friends and “brothers” for life.
I love this photo.
There’s nothing sweeter than a sleeping puppy in your arms.
An updated photo of one of our puppies working her way
into her new sister’s heart.
This is the same puppy who is happy to be close to her new sister.
She will be sharing that dog bed eventually!
Mom’s not letting this one out of her arms.
Angie’s and Gracie’s litters went to our veterinarian
for their first puppy shots and full puppy exam.
Gracie’s Mr. Blue takes his medicine like a champ.
Angie’s Mr. Blue stays very still while Dr. Vali of Mt. Pleasant Hospital for Animals listens to his heart.
Ms. Pink watches with her brother Mr. Green while their sister
Ms. Orange has her nails trimmed.
18 puppies X 4 paws each X 10 toe nails=lots of work!!!
His heart sounds great.
Can you see how much Angie’s Mr. Grey weighs?
Gracie’s Mr. Tan just wanted to be held a little longer.
Gracie’s boy Mr. Purple knows to stay still during this part.
This puppy is hoping for a reward when he is finished.
Some of Gracie’s boys are starting to eat puppy chow.
These two kept coming back for more!
Angie’s pups have two dishes! A few really get “into” their food.
They have taken over our living room! 18 puppies
meant we needed more room for them to run around
and still stay separate.
Gracie’s pups are on the left. Angie’s pups are on the right.
They experience ALL the sounds and events of our home WITH us!
Angie’s boy, Mr. Red is very comfortable napping
after his breakfast today.
Our puppies are having lots of “Selfies” taken!
They look like little wind up toys right now.
Some puppies sleep through EVERYTHING.
Smiling faces are everywhere.
This little black beauty is making a big impression.
There are dogs everywhere.
Tina is checking on one of the puppies.
This little puppy got one more hug before they had to leave.
We wonder what they are dreaming about so peacefully.
