Rayna was here this past weekend and she took a gazillion photos of the puppies. Ava absolutely loves the puppies and thinks that they are all gifts for her, to be played with, chewed on and chased at her desire.

Such cuties :)

And then we did some table time. They aren't wonderful at this yet, and had just eaten some yummy fresh goats milk and ground chicken.

We got some 'ok' front shots, however the sables/reds were adamantly opposed to sitting still so they are both pulling back. Excuses aside they are just 5 weeks old and having seen several dozen litters' photos, I can only guess as to if the smallest will turn out to be the best, or the best now will fall apart. That's why I love mentors :) And although I have those I am leaning towards (Bolin, Belmont, Brewer and Booth) that does not mean I know what I am talking about. I can't WAIT to hear what everyone thinks of them at the nationals! I'm crazy to bring them all, but crazy not too :)



Belmont (a.k.a. Bella)

Ballantyne (a.k.a. Tinie)

Thanks for including Ava in the puppy pictures. She is growing up just like Little Beaver. The puppies are wonderful. Lucky you---to get to play with that group.

Oh, what a pretty picture of Bolin.
The others too, but . . .

Brewer has yummy bone...actually all of them look nice and round at the moment. Lots will change in the next few weeks.

Oh goodness but Belmont is quite the startling little being. He looks like he is going to grow into such a solid fellow and I adore that split face mask.

Ava is growing up so beautifully. She is gorgeous! The puppy pictures are adorable too!

I like Bolin, so far. But it is hard to tell for sure with just the front picture......
