OK, now I know I’m supposed to blog Something Meaningful, but I have Puppy Brain after nearly six weeks of assisting my mother’s border collie with her first litter.
I have had about 45 minutes sleep since October.
And so I’m going to post some gratuitous puppy photos instead.
This makes this story a bit of fluff. Literally.
We have sleeping puppy photos, eating puppy photos, even cute-pink-puppy-toe photos!
Actually, maybe we’ll call it a Photo Essay. Does that make it sound more Serious?
Here we go. Get your “Awwwww” ready.
Cute pink puppy toes
Puppies are born with PINK TOES! Who knew?????
Where to put puppies when the weather has suddenly turned cold for this time of year? How about the little downstairs bathroom? And we’ll fold up a cardboard box to make a barrier to keep them in. That should do it!
How many puppies will fit in a box?
At two days old, we take the puppies to the vet for their check. How do you transport four squirming teeny tiny pups? How about a cardboard box? And, I know, let’s photograph them in the same box every week, just for fun!

(Their aunty wishes she could have a few of those…)
The trials of motherhood
Ok, let’s organise the Waggle Mafia for a team photo.
We need a photo for the ad, and we really do need four puppies in a row. All looking at the camera. How to do it?
Maybe if we put them with their mother… she might organise them.
Hmmm. Well, that wasn’t very successful. Let’s try something else.
Another failure. How about the basket. They’ll all sit in that and look at me. Surely.
OK. I give up.
Let’s do it this way.
So tell me, what do you think of our puppies. Adorable? What is your experience with small dogs, or indeed any other young animals?!
