Puppy Love....

A NEWBORN redbone hound pup...not even dried off yet, born yesterday around nine in the morning! These pups were born to a pair of redbones owned by my daughter and son-in-law. Between nine and one in the afternoon, Dixie gave birth to nine (almost all already spoken for!) pups, six boys and three girls!
Oh my goodness....looka that, willya?

Aww....so sweet....my how these little ones will change over the next few weeks....


Siblings snugglin' up!

Here's Dixie, the sweet mama, who did great with her one (and only) litter! She was mighty tired yesterday afternoon and is very protective and watchful of her little pups. Yesterday was fun and exciting for us, as we got lots of updates and pictures just as soon as they were able to send them! I even got to hear them on the phone while they wiggled and squeaked and cried for mama! What fun!

Cute little wrinkled muzzles, tiny little ears, and bitsy little paws....so much to enjoy!

Snuggle time....mama's feeding stations are all lined up and so are the puppies!

Good job, Mama! What a beautiful girl!
Nine squirmy, cuddly, wonderful little pups to love and watch grow.
It will be interesting to watch the morphing of these little short-eared pups into long-legged, playful and long-eared toddlers, that's for sure!
(Most of them are already spoken for, and one is coming to Michigan!)


And now, for the funniest picture of the day: Josefina, the pug, meets one of the pups for the first time....! Is she shocked beyond belief or WHAT? This one made me laugh right out loud!

They are beautiful. I am partial to red dogs myself! Aren't redbone hounds the breed of dog in "Where the Red Fern Grows"?
