8 is enough

so there are 8 in all....they all survived....thanks to J and I.....we had to break open about 4 or 5 sacs...it's kind of a blur! It was a really long night and I should go to bed......so here a few pics and I will take some more close ups soon of the puppies....they are SO CUTE and Shelby is being a great mom....she wasn't a great deliverer....uh hem...if J and I weren't there most would have died but she is a great mommy...she was just a really "new" mom! there are 3 black and white and 5 brown and white...I still haven't counted how many boys and girls! trying to not invade their privacy too much! and keep Faith from picking them up! that is a job in itself!

They are too cute! It almost makes me want an aminal, but we are not home enough, and I really don't want another chore that I end up with.... I have enough to do as it is. Merry Christmas Puppies and New Mommy!

Congratulations Grandma!

I like puppies but they are a lot of work. Enjoy Christmas with them, how long will you have them before it's time to sell them? I'd offer some up to Uncle B and Aunt M for thanks to their stud of a dog....

p.s. I've left you a ton of emails from my workplace... are you around to talk??

Congratulations. They are cute. from what I could make out of them.
Eight is a lot . I wonder if they have so many pups because the mortality rate is high.Awesome puppy-wifing.
Have a Merry Christmas

Oh yay oh yay oh yay!!! They are so cute!!! You did a great job!! I remember us freaking out when my mom's dog had puppies. She didn't do something and we ended up having to tie off their belly buttons. We were all scared to death!

What a great early Christmas gift!!

Not a great deliverer, but a great mom? Sigh. Someday someone may say the same about me - I hope ;-)

Congrats. 8 was my first choice, but since someone else picked it, I switched to 9. So how many are you keeping?

Puppays!! They are so beautiful and what a good mix of breeds. If I can convince Cheap Bastard, will you let me drive up to PG and buy one off you? (not sure if I'm kidding. Because puppays!!)

8?!? Wow! You weren't too far off when you guessed 10. My goodness!

Just 2 more sleeps and we get to see the puppies who become poopies & chewee's before they become dogs with new owners.
Too many puppies & kittens in the past.
You always loved it when the cats and dogs had litters and looks like you still do.

Yay! They're all here now!! I don't think I'd do very well delivering pups. I don't know though, I do enjoy watching "Real Life Trama in the ER" when I'm visiting people with tv's!! LOL.
