Tahlia's babies love their evenings in their playpen in our loungeroom. While we watch TV they take turns sitting on our laps or just having fun together. We hope you enjoy watching them live, as much as we enjoy them too!
Here are the babies at almost four weeks old. I took a little video of them, but I chose the wrong moment Lol. They had just had a drink from their mama and with full tummies and changed nappies, they were ready to settle down for a lovely sleep all piled on top of one another. I'll try and choose a better time for their video next time!
Somehow, tonight's pictures of Tahlia's baby Cobberdogs, ended up lower down the page than the earlier pictures. I've no idea how that happened! Sorry to their families :-( you'll need to scroll down to see their most recent pics. Silly grandma B Lol
Jane did this collage for me of Muskie, Seanna and Sennie. Thanks Jane!
It really shows the family likeness between father, daughter, and grand daughter. It will be fun to see what the next generation is like when Sennie has her first babies next year.
Tahlia and Solly's little puppies update
I want to say sorry to the families who are waiting for their new family member from this litter of puppies. During winter, the days are so short and so full that by the time I get to the camera it's already night time, and under the artificial light the colours don't show properly. But you've been begging for more photos so here goes! These taken just tonight.
Having a game of 'tug-a-tongue'!
When Rutlands Dressed To Impress was a puppy, she was so full of funny antics to make us laugh that we were always saying to her 'you're such a monkey!' and before we knew it, that had become her pet name. Now that she's all grown up, the name still suits her, perhaps even more than it did before! She loves to retrieve and carry things in her mouth and this is her most recent photo. Monkey's mama is Rutlands Shakea and her daddy is Rutlands Lil Alfred. I sent Alfred to a really lovely lady in America when he was a puppy and I was so impressed with the way he turned out that I purchased his frozen semen and had it sent to Australia. The wonders of modern medicine have produced our 'Monkey'!
Many of you will remember Clementine (Clemmie) as the girl with the big grin. She turned thirteen earlier this year and is still like a puppy. She is still so active and full of life, with no arthritis, and it's only the grey on her dear face and the fading sparkle in her eyes that's giving away her age. Here she is sleeping in the little doughnut bed she likes so much. It's so small that she has to curl up to lie in it, but she prefers it over her bigger one. Go figure. But at her age she's earned the privilege of choosing what she wants!
Remember her famous grin?
Clemmie started doing this when she was a puppy, whenever she thought she was in trouble. She knew it made me laugh and forget whatever it was she was in trouble for. Very smart! She doesn't do it much any more and I miss it.
