Happy Little(r) Family



Sydney's little family is still doing well, although it's a little bit smaller. Two puppies were lost in the first 24 hours. A very sad time for us. :-( The little girl who was a bit cyanotic and had labored breathing right from the start, and unexpectedly, the tiny little red dog. The little girl was a fighter, and I thought she was improving a bit, but obviously not. The little red dog seemed OK but small and more alien than dog-looking. But he just slipped away from one minute to the next, and he didn't want to come back.




So the family stands at five babies, 3 girls, 2 boys. One of the girls is not as vigorous as the rest, but she is growing and I hope for the best. Syd continues to be a good mother, although I am supplementing because she doesn't produce a ton of milk, and she was very calcium depleted.

A proud Mama Syd with her babies.

Snoozing together in the soft bed (not the Brindle Boy, no pink bed for him, thankyouverymuch) (Saturday)




The family taking a little siesta.





Always available for comic relief.

Maybe some little boys shouldn't overdo it at the breakfast buffet (Sunday).

Sarah what a beautiful little family you have there. I am so sorry for the loss of your two little ones. I can't wait to meet the puppies in person.

Sorry for the loss of the two puppies. Looking forward to watching the remaining guys grow up! Can't wait to see which one will be out there herding with Uncle Biscuit...
