Our dear, sweet dog, Lady, was due any day and we were all very excited....and anxious! The poor dog was HUGE and just miserable. As some of you may recall, she had one puppy last year. The puppy died, sadly, when it was bit on the face by a rattlesnake.
Any how, we were rather excited about this new arrival! The day finally came. We knew she was going into labor and got all prepared.
Her trusty cat was there to comfort her in any way he could (these two are ridiculous!).
Then, whilst watching a movie, we heard the little 'squeals' from a puppy and ran out to the school room to check. 1 puppy! We kept checking and soon there were 4 puppies! When we went to bed, she had had 5, and we thought she was done..... Not so.
(The first 4. Don't remember which order, but black came first, then a black and white... I think the black in the middle, then the B&W in the middle...)
(Lady with her puppies.. exhausted and taking a nap while two of them snooze around her face)
Now our problem is trying to make sure everyone gets enough milk! Thank goodness for that milk cow, because rotating them is no fun....
(Everyone scrambling for food! and Momma too tired to worry right now)
Prayers please that we will find good homes for all of them! We already have a few people who want a puppy, but we weren't counting on this many. Guess God knows what He is doing! Just gotta trust Him. They are adorable, though!!!
In Christ's Service,
