Animal Crackers - They grow up so fast!!

Seriously - these babies grow up so fast!! All of them Donkeys - Goats - and Dogs!
My baby first  - Miss Libbie - Can you believe it has been two years since I started doing my Saturday post with our new puppy Libbie? And now she has babies of her own! They have grown up so fast too - she is already starting to wean them!! Can you believe they are already 5 weeks old?????  She has been an amazing Mom - very protective, very loving and caring. I couldn't figure out why she would stand outside the pen and not feed them everytime they were crying... then I googled, and yep time to wean... they have been eating hard food soaked for a week or so now... they are doing really well.
They are true little playful puppies now. They play really hard too! And then just in the blink of an eye they fall over and are sound asleep. Too too cute!
I totally adore this photo of "Mini" and Reno - You can almost hear her talking to her brother.. common we can get over this!! Go for it! And little Mr. Reno - he LOVES having his photo taken, just like his Mom did when she was a puppy. I swear this guy stops and poses for me! LOL

Speaking of Weaning ... Jazz is more than ready - HELLO>>> can you please go ahead and move Felipe??? LOL He is a handful, typical little boy, and I think Mom is ready for some peace and quiet. Yes Jazz.. he will be moved soon, just waiting a bit longer so we can move his little 1/2 brother Jorge with him :0)

ME??? What do you mean you are going to move me??? NOOOOOOO!!!  LOL Felipe is such a clown!
Almost time for Jack and Jill to be weaned too... We need to find a new home for Jack, I hate to clip him, he is so stunning I hate to not let him be a stud Buck for someone else. But if I can't find a home soon... we will have to - as he will get dangerous - not to us but all the women in the pen!
Wanted to show off how fuzzy little Felicia is getting, they all are! Gonna start getting really cold, nature knows and protects those that need it! 
You can see here it already has gotten cold here... no more green to graze on! Everything has pretty much frozen, so we have to make sure they have plenty of hay to eat and keep warm now. 

Well - better run! Laundry and some Crafting planned for today! :0)
HUGS and-

Hi Michelle, just when I think the AC pics can't get any better, you blow me away again!! The puppies have grown so quickly & they are SO cute. It does not feel like 2 years since Libbie arrived, I still remember HEr as a puppy! Have a great weekend.
