And then there were none…

A blog told in photos.

First, there was a very fat momma…

who had a very hard time with the delivery.
(story here)
But then…
after eight puppies and several days of supplemental feedings,
she felt better. And the babies were better, too.
(story here)

We kept them in a kiddie pool.
Until one day several found their way out.

We changed the pen to a bench and a board.

And it worked well.
Until it didn’t.

A kind neighbor lent us the perfect corral.

They couldn’t climb out BUT momma couldn’t climb in…it was time to regulate nursing and introduce puppy food!

When the weather (finally) warmed up, we moved them to a pen on the porch.

We started with EIGHT…

Our first pick-up was Luna.

And we had SEVEN.
Then Emmy was picked up.

And we had SIX.

Next to go was Piper.

We’re partial to Piper because she’s FAMILY now! ❤

And we had FIVE.

Blossom was next to be picked up.

Blossom has a special story–because of the emergency c-section her momma needed, the vet called in extra staff. This little doll was cleaned up and stimulated by a vet tech who fell instantly in love.

Then we had FOUR.

Joss went to her forever family next.

(her ear was floppy again at pick-up, lol)
And we had THREE.

Frankie, our only boy, was picked up next.

And we had TWO.

BUT, the BEST part about being the LAST TWO is that they went home TOGETHER!

and Cooper

…..were both adopted by the same family!

And then there were NONE.

It has been a stressful, exciting, delightful, challenging, and poopy eight weeks.
I can’t believe it’s over! I can’t believe they are all gone!
I’m very happy to say they ALL have wonderful new homes.
I’m also quite happy to say I am never doing this again.

I hope you have enjoyed this puppy adventure. 😀

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.

    All those sweet faces! You must have had a hard time seeing them go (even after all that stress and mess).😉
