You got it.
I’ve got a lot of explaining to do.
One of the biggest events of my life and I have not updated you on my babies progress.We are doing the usual things we do at about 9 days old.
Sleeping is number one on the list believe it or not. Of course it is hard to say.
Eating for my babies is pretty important too.
Without eating I know they would never sleep.
They all have their colors from birth.
Mama Jo assigns them colors right away.
But it took Mama Jo awhile to decide a theme for the babies this year.
It was going to be wine but my little leprechaun here put the wine theme on the back burner. As I mentioned we sleep.
My babies and me.
But my babies sleep more than me.
Mama Jo says my babies are all perfect.
Plump paws, glowing cream coats and shiny black noses.My babies like to lie on me.
How bad can that be.
I let them lie on my face up front. And of course they can lie down there too. That is where they spend most of their time.Believe it or not I get to go outside.
For the necessary things as you would expect but also to check out the scene on the ranch. There is a lot of activity going on at the ranch.
This place is changing.
Mama Jo’s family are here almost everyday working in our yard and building things.
She even had this man go up in the big tree I look at from the pool.
I don’t mind the company of the extra people around.
As long as they go away eventually.
I’m trying to be on my best behavior.
I can dispel the myth that a mama dog with puppies is dangerous.I still have access to the pool thank god.
It is my way of cooling down and cleaning off.But Mama Jo thinks I need extra cleaning after my cool off.
I must visit this shower at least twice a day.
I love to be wet.
But not like this.Please be done. After I get cleaned up I go right to my babies.
When they are little like this nursing them is a piece of cake.I finish up my grooming.
A girl has to take care of herself too.
Mama Jo says we should get started having some fun with my babies.
We gotta tell you their names and introduce our theme.
How about we start with Quinn
Quinn got tagged with yellow.
The color of happiness and sunshine.
Is he cute or what?
No, his name is not MUSTANG.
But we like M names.
He’s the blue ribbon guy. Oh and the theme Mama Jo picked out.
Can you guess?
Hint # 1 The color green.
Hint # 2 The month of March.
You got it.
Or you could say Seamus.
Did you know their are two variants of the name?
I’m gonna stick with Shamus. Say what you want.
The little man who stole the show.
As you can see that is not me tending to Shamus.
My mom or Grandma Maisie still has a strong mothering instinct.
So me and Mama Jo are letting her help.
It works out better keeping everybody happy and giving me a break. OK here we go.
Finnegan says get me back to my Mama so I can enjoy today.Mama Jo still has all this Easter stuff around so oh boy here she goes.
Grandma Maisie is not so sure about this.A baby in a basket definitely needs to be licked Meet Riley.
My purple girl.
More cuteness in a basket.
Cuteness on a blanket.
My pink girl Fiona
You will be seeing much more of Fiona.And last but not least my beautiful turquoise girl RORY!
Rory open your eyes.
Mama Jo says there is a big world out there.
A few days after Mama Jo took all these photo’s hundreds of people descended upon our home at the ranch.
And this what happened.
Right outside my bedroom door!
And I thought my babies were going to be a big event.
Be back soon. Promise.
