We had to make a short and sweet stop at my bestest friend's house, because we hadn't been in that neck of the woods for about six weeks and HAD TO SEE THE PUPPIES! They're about a month old, and had just started out on their first steps two days before. Oh my gosh. I do not need another dog I do not need another dog Idonotneedanotherdog. (If you want to see a video of squeaking wobbling puppies go back to Biddie's blog. Go on, you know you wanna.)
They are five soft wiggling bundles of cute overload. They could halt wars and cure diseases, I'm sure.Did I say soft? Soooo so so soft!
They are the babies of a gorgeous tiny Yorkie- Shi-Tzu or if you want to get fancy about it, a SHORKIE, hahaha, and a large boisterous Bichon Frise. Although I could be wrong about that; I'd just call them Pretty and Silly. The puppies would be...BiShork? Borkie? Shork-frise? Let's just call them Adorable. (And if you wish to call them Mutts, be assured that Mutts are awesome!)
They totally put on a show for us. They were making little growling noises as they pretended to fight, and they tried out a few little barks. Oh man it was soooocute!
This is Ruby, the mama. It's her first litter. And her last. She darn near died for these little guys. They're not allowed to suckle her anymore (good thing there are lots of humans in the house willing to bottle feed puppies) but she is still a protective and loving mama.
All ferocious 7 lbs of her.
Of course, I'm like Snow White with the critters. I simply hold out my hands and the woodland creatures and house pets flock to me. I'm a critter magnet.
They were suckling my sweater. And my knuckles. And Bucky's ankle. He's pretty sure they almost gummed off his Achilles tendon.
Are you seeing those white eyelashes? Like, just knock me over right now.
Any idea how hard it was to NOT slip one into a coat pocket?
Or make a rash impulsive promise to fork over the cash and take one home in a few more weeks?
I do not need another dog. My mom does not want another dog to visit her on weekends. No more dogs. NO, no! But I looked over at Jethro and he's there on the couch with this dreamy eyed look of puppy love and I had to look away, quick!
Doesn't this one look a little like a Pug? Brown and black?
All I get to keep is the lingering lovey feeling of tiny puppy paws and puppy tongues, and the softness of their brand new fur.
