The Puppies Play Outside

The puppies tub was desperately in need of a good hosing out, so I decided to let the puppies have their first time out in the yard while I cleaned their pool. They had an absolute blast and were so super curious!

Here’s one of my favorite pictures of the day – little Achilles on the move:

Of course, I had to take lots of pictures of Tritip too:

And the whole group of them exploring:

Meet The Puppies – Rebel

Last, but certainly not least, was our bonus puppy. We were told by the vet that there were six, maybe seven puppies. After Toby, there was almost an hour before little Rebel was born. We were beginning to think that six would be it when this adorable little guy made his entrance at 1:15pm! He’ll be going home to Tim, Nicki, and Skyler as well – and get to spend his life with big brother Blitz! His name was pretty special too – Sky was just in a dance recital and got a little rebellious with a move she wasn’t supposed to do… the name was born!

Here’s Rebel on his birthday:

Meet The Puppies – Toby

Our sixth born is named Toby. He was born at 12:25pm and will be going home with my friend from high school, Sharon. She, her hubby, and her two boys are so excited! It was amazing to reconnect in person after all these years (we’ve stayed in touch via Facebook). They came out to the ranch, met Toby and fell in love!

Meet The Puppies – Zeva

Just when I thought we were going to have all boys, out came our one and only girl! Meet miss Zeva, born at 11:41am. She’ll be going home with our good friends Jim and Ashley! She is quite the little snuggle bug but will not hesitate to elbow her brothers out of the way to get some food!

Here she is on her birthday:

Meet The Puppies – Name TBD

Ok, so not everyone has a name right away. And that’s cool too! This sweet little boy was born third at 11:17am and will be going home to my sister and her family. He is super mellow, but always in the thick of things! He has stunning blue eyes, for right now at least! I’m hoping he keeps them – they go really well with his chocolate color!

Meet The Puppies – Achilles

I love learning more about what goes into the names people choose for their puppies. Some, like me, just have something pop into their head. Others think long and hard. My new friends John and Sylvia will be taking little Achilles home – he was puppy number two, born at 11:06am. The love Greek mythology, so thus the name.

Quick backstory: the day after we rescued Jenny, we put her out in the yard with Brady for about 1/2 an hour. She freaked out, dug out of the fenced area, and ran away. Like really far away. Enter John. He found her on the side of the road (she had a collar on but no tags yet) and took her in.

I, meanwhile, was losing my mind. We’d only had her for a day, but we were already in love with her. I posted on a local Facebook group that she was missing and John sent me a message. Jenny spent the night with him and his girlfriend (Sylvia) and they too, fell in love with her. I’m so happy they brought her back and promised them a puppy. They chose this little brute:

He’s the biggest of the group and is a sweet little thing! Here he is at three weeks:
