Mother Sadie and her five pups. It was a long and tiring night for Sadie.
The first puppy was quite a surprise to her. :) She was not too sure about the second one but by the fourth and fifth, she was an expert. She seems to be a good momma dog and leaves their little den only to run to the potty and grab a bite to eat.
Kennedy regularly brings food and water to her and she nibbles and laps in the comfort of her den. :)
They are situated in a box in our living room behind one of the chairs. I placed a card table over the top of the box and then put a sheet over the top of the card table so they have secluded place in the family area.
The children decided that they wanted to each have their very own puppy to name and take care of while they are with us.
This is Mr. Huckleberry. He is "mine" and was born first. He likes to sleep on Sadie's neck....
....or draped over her back leg...
Today we will try to get good pictures of all the puppies.
