Puppies everywhere

Puppies puppies everywhere! They all walk around the room now, exploring, playing and peeing. Every time I enter the room I have to laugh as they all stop and look, just like little kids you burst in on and startle. They look like they’ve been caught doing something wrong.

They are well into the solid food now and are taking more and more from me, and less from Annie. This is good as she wants less and less to do with them. Tonight, for an hour during feeding time, they had a babysitter! My friend, Maria, came by and played, fussed, and held them all. When I came down to clean up the meal mess they were all zonked out. They continue to enjoy human contact, wagging and crawling over one another to get to the people who visit them. There are going to be a lot of visitors soon. We plan to post their pictures on Petfinder next week. Look for them either by going directly to Petfinder or through the HELP website . They will be named after Santa’s eight reindeer – Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comit, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen. The brown one is Blitzen.

Oh, by the way, if you are having trouble guessing who is my favorite don’t feel bad. I keep getting it mixed up too! It is one of the white pups with subtle markings on his nose and the widest tongue you’ve ever seen!! He is my favorite because all he wants to do is be held and chew on my hair. And lick. And cuddle. But see, most of the white ones fit that description! I’ll be holding one and think, “Ah, THIS is the one”. Put him down and pick up another and think “no, THIS IS the one.” I’ve picked up all four and thought that about all of them so who knows. I usually go for temperament more than looks and they are still just beginning to show their true temperaments.
