Puppies, Puppies, and more puppies!

So the puppy picking party was a ton of fun and most of the puppies got adopted that day to very good homes. We took our own and named her Cookie...then since the puppies were only 6 weeks I offered to hold onto 2 other ones while they matured to 8 weeks. The vet said it's best if they stay together in their pack, especially if they are taken away from their mom. They just turned 7 weeks this past Saturday and boy oh boy taking care of puppies is a ton of work. It's like I am non stop mopping up my floor. Here are some pics of the cuties and my old man dog too.

Here is a pic of our pooch Scrappy Doo being introduced to Cookie.



They are already getting spoiled here..from yard dogs to spoiled rotten dogs!


Even their bowls know its true...




Cookie's first bath....



All the puppies in a basket!




Cookie was playing dress up...


Last pic..not a puppy pic but here is Poops with Scrappy after he got released from the pet hospital. He had an episode of vomiting and diarrhea and we found out the hard way to not feed our dogs people food. Apparently, he got
Pancreatitis and had to be IV'd until he was fully hydrated and is on a dose of antibiotics. He will forever be subject to boiled rice and chicken along with Prescription Diet food for dogs. Leaving him at the vet was one of the hardest things to do...I left in tears but am so glad that he is okay now and it's not something more serious..like cancer. We really love our Scrappy...but no more table scraps for him.

Glad Scrappy is doing better. Puppies are cute. You'll probably end up with the other 2 if you don't watch out.
