Careening & Six Week Photos

Having a litter is a whole lot of sharing, and it is not always comfortable. Think about it -- by placing puppies, I am sharing the outcomes of a long series of often challenging decisions. It isn't just me who lives with the consequences of my choices -- it will be eight other families, for better or worse. 

Cautious Optimism

The Night Shift (aka Dear Husband) reported one episode of puking puppy overnight and so we are feeling cautiously optimistic that Puke-a-Palooza is really and truly winding down. The Puke-Fest really put a damper on the Intro to Solid Foods course that we started, and so the puppies just had Official Non-Nursed Meal #2 this morning. I am watching them closely for any signs of rejection but so far, so good...

Five Weeks @ 6:30 p.m. WOW

Here we go again, but with a bit more sleep thanks to Dear Husband who stayed up all night to tend Sparkle/Sparklers so I could sleep. Wasn't that nice of him? Morning play in the bedroom for a bit...

Channeling & Cycles

The Montana Puppy Choir has not been singing the wake-up songs lately -- it is their Choir Master (aka Sparkle) who is ensuring I am up before 4:30. That would be okay if I could go to sleep early at night but the reality of Life with Puppies is absolute overload, and my brain has decided that bedtime is the perfect time to solve all of life's problems, remember every undone thing, plan every minute of the next week month year ten years, and worry about every possible catastrophe.
