Brand New Puppies!!!
It's spring and such a busy time my painting has been taking a beating time-wise. Yesterday was supposed to be a painting day- but my chihuahua decided it was TIME!!! So I spent the day at her side- waiting, waiting, waiting. It took all day, she wasn't in distress, just showing the signs and I was afraid to leave her alone for more than a few minutes. Last evening about 7pm we began to have our first baby- by 9pm we had 3! A boy and 2 girls. All about 5 ounces. Thought you might like to see Mama and her new family. Mama isn't her usual "pretty" self- she's had a lot of work to do! Also- as you can see she "hides" her food and water which keeps me busy cleaning out the paper from her waterbowl! The babies are "squirmy" so they are hard to hold and photograph, but you can see they're pretty tiny- 2 fit in one hand with ease!
Hope you have a great holiday weekend, and stop to remember and honor our military, past and present.
