“Does this Rag Smell Like Chloroform?”
We have litters of puppies that are memorable to us for different reasons. In the case of Sierra’s litter, they’re renowned for their ability to sleep soundly. And they’ll do it anywhere. This past week, the gang went on their first car ride to visit our friendly veterinarian. Some litters will punctuate the ride with ear-piercing shrieking, but not this one. They managed to sleep through the entire ride. Once at the clinic, they put their best feet forward and were very well-behaved, but also very brave throughout their examinations. All scored top marks.
This group doesn’t always come across as though in a coma. They have their share of rowdy moments and we’re sure it was a team effort that resulted in the inversion of the “tip-proof” water bowl in their whelping box. Best of all, they had massive play dates with Bailey and her eight pups. The weather was agreeable enough that we were able to get everyone outside together. While inside, Bailey will often stand inside either whelping box just to be close to the puppies. While outside, she loves to engage the little ones in play and they were all too willing to oblige.
The other morning as the household was waking up, the noise level was ramping up with the clanging of dishes as breakfast was being prepared and barking dogs that either were waiting to be fed or wanting to go outside. In Bailey’s litter right “next door”, the pups were already bouncing off the walls playing with each other and squealing with delight. And Sierra’s gang you might ask? Sound asleep.
The past few weeks have seen a roller coaster sampling of weather wherein the group has experienced all four seasons. They had ample fun playing together, whether inside or out and they made a lot of friends, both two and four-legged. While it’s sad to see them go, our hearts are warmed by the knowledge that the puppies will be abundantly loved as they continue on the next leg of their journey. As the week wound down, we spent a lot of time with each and every one to ensure that we all got our fill of kisses. These were among the most special moments that we’ll treasure forever. So long, little ones and be safe!
