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.

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 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.
