Puppies - Oh how they grow

The Whistler x Ruby litter are now just over 8 wks of age ... how time flies and what fun I've had with this litter. They've been such little dolls, taking every new adventure their grandma Linda (Whistler's owner) has thrown at them. With all she's done, there has to be some great agility stars in there.

Today it was lovely out, and, well, why not hang puppy laundry out to dry. Sure beats listening to them go plop, bang, thump in the dryer.

This is Ruby's boy at just over 8 wks of age ... he is so reminiscent of his father. A star we hope.
Here's the larger girl, she's now off to her new home and is called "Reno".

Have you ever tried taking pics of sleeping dogs while in the house? No sooner do you open a door and they're all up. Well, slowly, cm by cm I opened the patio door .. yes I got a few heads pop up a couple of times hearing the noise, but they went back to their snoozing, so I was able to capture these precious moments.
here's "Mighty Tot", the smallest girl who is likely to mature around 131/4-13 1/2.
Ruby has been the greatest mom, always wanting to be with them. She'll stand by their pen outside to be picked up and put in with them. Now that there is just the one left she's more than happy to be her best mate.
Oh, a bit of a stretch .... this afternoon lazing is just the thing ...
back to sleep ... life is so tough ... she'll be headed to her new home in a couple of days

Those are such sweet pictures! Though the first one gave me a start...all those furry things hanging on the line could have been sheltie pups, I thought! Phew!

Just curious -- does the mum suffer any seperation pangs when the pups are gone? If so, how do you handle it?

It's hard to believe the little darlings are off to their new homes already. What sweeties!

Our mom's aren't usually affected by their pups leaving, but Ruby has been very different in her wanting to be with them even at this 8+wk old stage. She'll likely be just fine when she moves back to the main crew and can rule the roost there :)!

Yes Judy, hard to believe .... really makes you realize how fast time goes and how fast puppies/dogs mature ... all too short.
