Puppies & Summer

I cannot believe how fast this summer has gone by. With only a few weeks left before Fall officially begins, the feel in the air is starting to change. There's been a couple of cooler mornings recently, almost fall like. It's a cool 79 out today, but has been in the 90's all week.

This is Sadie. She's a year and a half old now, the puppy we kept from last year's litter. What a character she is! See that rag toy? That's her Santa, and don't even try to take it away from her. lol It's amazing how these little guys physically change so much during their first year.

I'm feeling a bit sad. You see, tomorrow my puppies will be 8 weeks old and going to their new homes. Their new families are so excited, they can barely stand the wait. These families have been counting down the days. I took this whole week off work knowing it would be the puppies' last week with us. I've been playing and training with them, all week.

This is Betty, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam.... She is going home to live with a half sister who is just a couple of months older than her. The girls have the same dad. I'm so happy Betty will not be alone all day, and that she's going to have someone to play with.

And, here's the boys... Sammy and Tiny Tim. Aren't they cute!? That's Sammy on the right. The gal that adopted Timmy, couldn't stand it and decided to adopt Sammy too. She didn't want them to end up alone all day.

The next couple of photos were taken with a cell phone camera, that doesn't really do the job...

I'm so happy the puppies all have wonderful homes to go to. If I didn't already have so many dogs, I would seriously think about keeping Tiny Tim... he's got such a great personality. Oh! They all do! But, they say, when picking out a new dog, get down on the floor with them, let the dog pick you... that's the one you want. And, I think, Tim has picked me!
