But wait…there’s more good news!  Starting with the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available, through April 30, SU! is bringing you two special offers:

Puppy Pictures of the Day

Happy Sibling Day from the Mini-Muffins!

Box of Puppies April 9I would like to thank all of you for the wonderful comments and well-wishes you have left. I wish I had time to thank each one of you personally.  I am still sleeping by the box to make sure little Mira, our miracle girl, is latching on and nursing.  She is the smallest of the litter, at 26.2 ounces, but she has certainly done a fabulous job of gaining…and has almost doubled her birth rate.

IMG_0967The Flash Brothers continue to be inseparable…

IMG_0955while little Bunny charms us all.

IMG_0962Muffy left her box last night to spend a little cuddle time with me.  My husband was able to snap this picture before he left for work this morning.  We are both exhausted, but it is getting better.

IMG_0948Many of you have asked about Brody and Lexi.  They have experienced the sights and the sounds, and are absolutely fine with the fact there are 6 little members of the Schach Pack residing in the corner of the living room.  Of course, they are separated from them.  However, Muffy does leave the “pupartment” a little now…and even went for a walk yesterday.  After this weekend, things will start to improve.

Once again, thank you for your patience with me.  To my customers, I am so sorry to be out of contact for so long.  But I am going to be working on emails and orders this afternoon.  A longtime breeder told a friend of mine she had experienced all of these things:  a puppy stuck in the canal, a C-section, and preeclampsia…but never in the same litter.  I guess Muff wanted to make sure I got full treatment!

Until next time…


  1. They are adorable. I’ll take one in every color

  2. So glad everything is working out for all. Muffy and Puppys look amazing. Glad to see you both getting some sleep.

  13. Chris R. from Iowa

    They are so cute! Love their coloring and markings. I wonder how many champs you have there? Love the names you are coming up with! Sounds like Muffy is doing great and even taking a walk! Love the cuddle photo! Get some much needed rest!

  14. So sweet! Thanks for sharing. I am hoping things get easier each day.

  16. The puppies and mother Muffy are absolutely beautiful! I’m so sorry you and Muffy had such a tough time delivering. They were well worth the wait! Best wishes, Nancy B

  17. I have enjoyed seeing the pictures of Muffy and her puppies. I have a Boston Terrior so two puppies remind me of Molly. She is now 13 yet has energy to play. Love them.

  18. I had to laugh at your last comment of Muffy wanting you to get the full treatment! The furbabies are soooooooooooooooo cute. I just want to smell their puppy breath. I sure wish I lived close enough to help. Thanks for sharing these cuties with us.

  19. Big congratulations to Muffy and her human Mommy and Daddy…those are the most adorable fur babies!!! Each and all are so beautiful…..cannot wait to see the moving and playing around. Glad to hear that their aunt and uncle are helping them to be welcomed into the fold! Will be fun to see them all romping and playing….love that Muffy decided to cuddle with you, a bond that will never be broken…..!

  20. Sooo happy to hear puppies and moms are doing well. The very first thing I did was to count the puppies in your first picture. I guess I have been concerned about losing Mira or one of the puppies more than I realized. How wonderful and scary and exhausting it must be for you all!!! The puppies are beautiful. I am glad to hear that Muffy is feeling well enough for a walk and cuddle time with her momma. Glad to hear the other two dogs are doing okay as well. Thanks so much for sharing your adventure with us online. As much as I love your cards, I love hearing about your boxers, too.

  21. Love the photos Ann. So happy the pups are doing so well. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Those puppies are sooooo sweet! Lucky you to cuddle them.

  23. How adorable? So glad everything is getting better for them and you. You are going to get so attached it will be hard to let them go to someone else, just saying….

  24. Diana in Wisconsin

    What a wonderful six pack Ann. I wish I could come visit and see them in person but we live too far away. Glad all is well with pups and mommy and you too mom of all.
