Here are their two week old photos..... We got tired of calling them Puppy #1, Puppy #2 and Puppy #3. We don't get to officially name them, the new owners will do that, but well - we have nick names for them now :0)
Puppy #1 - the tri-color Female. We call her "Chica"
Then their is Puppy #2 - a Blue Merle Female - We call her "Mini Libbie"... LOL
Then our surprise puppy - Puppy #3 - A Tri-color Male - We call him "Dude"
He is a typical Guy - Takes his place of the eating line, can fall over and sleep in any position... Loves to sleep on his back with all fours up in the air! LOL And he is very curious - moves everywhere and has escaped from the crate many more times than I would like to admit. Because of him we have pulled the crate out of the puppy pen, and already put the mats and fur blanket on the floor. Now if he wonders away from the girls... he can find his way back to them.
We have a great Pen set up in my Craft room. Looks like a play pen for puppies - so they are safe, and contained. Right now we leave the door open as it has about a 6 inch lip on the bottom that Libbie can hop over and go in and out. Once these guys are bigger, that will have to stay closed or I will have a real mess and puppies everywhere I am sure!
Watching these puppies get bigger and grow is a miracle and just amazing. But it really has gotten me to think about how God plans things, and the fact that some animals are born still needing time to grow and depend on their Mom, and animals that are born in the wild and need to run from a predator are ready to pop up and run....
Donkeys.... I didn't get new photos taken this week. Was already dark and misting when I got home yesterday and well... it was just to wet and cold to go out just after the sun came up this morning - so how about if we look at a few of this years miracles? A review of Babies this year of sorts....
Alonzo - March 2010 - This guy was Lapping the pen within 45 minutes of being born! This is why he is named for a race car driver! He now lives at a neighbors house, if fact we visited him last night... He is a very happy little guy - with his three other friends... Frio, Coffee and Toffee. I love selling my babies to neighbors so I can still see them all!!!!!
Lydia - May 2010 - - - OH MY I Cannot believe Lydia is as old as she is! She is ready to be weaned and moved into the youth pen, she is as gorgeous as her Mom and just as sweet.
Paco - June 2010 - I have very few photos of the first month of this guys life! Makes me so sad - He was born just a few days before my accident. Hubby played with him a lot so he is really sweet, but just not the huge album of photos.... He will be really hard to sell, but as a boy he has to go. He will be our first spot that we sell.
And our last baby so far this year -
Marisa - Sept. 2010 - Sometimes I wonder if she was born full grown - she is just so darn tall! But absolutely STUNNING and obnoxiously friendly. We talk about if she will be sold, we know she should be, as we can't keep all the babies... but man... she will be tough. Will have to be the perfect home - I will make sure of that!
Hope you enjoyed the puppies, and the little trip down memory lane of babies... sorry I was so lazy and cold this morning and didn't take new stuff for you - I don't know if we will have any other babies this year... will be close, as we just are not exactly sure when Darlene and Bella are due, they are both very hard to tell when they got pregnant - I am thinking end of January or into February... but you just never know with these two - especially Darlene, she likes to trick us every year!
Have a wonderful Saturday and can't wait to show you my Dust it Off card tomorrow!
