One Puppy, Two Puppy, Red Puppy, Blue Puppy

One Puppy, Two Puppy, Red Puppy, Blue Puppy

This one has a little star… This one has a little car… Say, what a lot of pups there are… ………….okay…………okay…………. …..I’ll stop now….. If you remember…..Molly’s litter was born on March 2nd…..which is Dr. Seuss’ Birthday… Tra!  La! (hence a tribute to his literature and alliterations) We only just started to advertise them.  They only just turned six weeks old… It’s quite a challenge taking photographs of squirming/pee’ing/poop’ing/cavorting puppies… It’s not a one person project… Nope, not at all……

~~~Gruel Time For Molly’s Puppies~~~

~~~Gruel Time For Molly’s Puppies~~~

This evening’s meal was the first attempt at “solid” food for Molly’s litter… Their eyes are almost completely open now… The formula (just by itself) isn’t filling them up to where they feel happy & content with their full tummies… They can’t sink their newly emerging teeth into it… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~So It’s Gruel Time~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It was one of the easiest transition that we have ever had…….! The little boopers just dove right into the gruel with little to no outside assistance……….

Molly And Me

Molly And Me

At this point we still have fourteen puppies… …..eight girls and six boys… …..we are at eleven days and counting… …..and it’s Friday the Thirteenth too… …..but I haven’t forgotten the litter of fifteen who we lost when they were between three and four weeks old… …..and we still don’t know why………(sigh)… …..so…..I’m holding my breath and keeping my fingers crossed… Molly is trying hard to keep up with nursing all fourteen of her babies……. …..but she’s fading fast……. …..I…

All For The Lack Of A Collar

All For The Lack Of A Collar

We should have named Ben…..Houdini… He is the best escape-artist, when it comes to getting out of his collars… We (the knuckle-dragging/bi-peds) finally learned that a chain collar for the boy is necessary……. …..we learned too late…….but we ultimately learned……. …..we have also learned that the addition of a hearty harness (for social occasions, when we have to go out) is a necessity for the Ben-boy……. …..(so that I can pull him off balance & subsequently stop his momentum)….. In…

The Usual Suspects

The Usual Suspects

  It’s a morning thing… It usually doesn’t happen at any other time during the day… Molly always starts it (I can tell by her voice). Then Willow chimes in……. …….and then Killian & Ben pile on…….literally falling all over each other………….Hadrian is a watcher. The entire pack starts barking and howling and bouncing and bounding…………. What are they all doing? They are harassing Mason on the other side of the fence line… (Disclaimer***Photographs May Be Blurry.  It’s Hard Getting…

Cross-Eyed Exhaustion

Cross-Eyed Exhaustion

    My older daughter and I are so tired. We are cross-eyed, drooling and dragging our knuckles. We’re struggling with Molly’s remaining puppies…………………..and yes, I did say remaining… It’s so sad… It’s exhausting and sad… Molly hasn’t ever wanted anything to do with her puppies. This isn’t the first time this has happened with a Mom and her babies. So we necessarily had to step in and roll with the punches with supplements and tube-feeding around the clock. We…

PUPPIES!!!

PUPPIES!!!

    Molly had six puppies!!! Four boys and two girls!!! Molly thinks they are interesting…….curious…..but not really bonded to them at all. She’s got milk…………………..but very little. ……………….and all of this isn’t surprising because………………. **********************She’s an Irish Wolfhound**********************   Gotta’ love ’em…     They march to their own drummer…………………..or maybe it’s a Pan flute…       But we were ready for this… We basically expected this… At first we tried to have the puppies nurse from Mom…

Molly’s In A Family Way

Molly’s In A Family Way

    I know one thing for sure. Molly’s pregnant… We weren’t sure if she was for the longest time.   But she’s large now….       So, that means she’s fertile………. ………..which also means…………… Ben’s fertile. We didn’t know that for sure before now either. This is both Molly’s and Ben’s first litter of puppies. Molly’s huge and uncomfortable. If this is a false pregnancy…………………..it is Super-D-Dooper believable… Irish Wolfhounds are such a unique, confounding, frustrating breed. The…

Weather & Sundry Things

Weather & Sundry Things

  I wanted to use the word “assundry” in this post’s title…………..but apparently there’s no such word(?)………………just like “snuck”………………go figure… Hmmmmmmm.  You learn something new everyday. But I like snuck and assundry and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I can make them work. ~~~~~~~~~~ Well, Florence has made landfall and done her damage.  She continues to down-grade and idle inland while dumping gallons of rain in her wake.   Tropical Depression Helene is still doing pirouettes in the Atlantic. Tropical Depression Joyce is going…
