The Puppies Are Here

It’s great to be checking in with all of you today, after taking a break to take care of puppies.  Yep! The puppies are here!  While we are not out of the woods yet,  I am making a quick post today to let you know about our latest bundles of joy – the Party of Ten!


Yep! Party of Ten! While the X-rays only showed 6 for sure, maybe 7 or 8, Kendall blessed us with TEN puppies.  Ten is considered a large litter for a Boxer of Kendall’s size, so supplementation was in order.  We are hoping that Kendall does not decide to close the “milk bar” down before we get these babies started on puppy gruel! We have four girls and 6 boys. There are four fawns and six brindles.  Are you ready for some puppy cuteness?  Here you go!


While I don’t have pictures of everyone posted today, I will be certain to introduce you to each one in the upcoming days.  Because three of the puppies are low birth weight and “at risk”,  the litter does take up a huge amount of my time. I sleep beside the whelping box, and sometimes in it,  when I can find the time to sleep.  The babes are fed in shifts, and by the time the second shift finishes up, the first shift is ready to go again.  As they grow older and become more active, I have no idea what I am going to do!  It will be Puppy Pandemonium!


I’ll be back later this week with more puppy pictures, exciting information about the second Sale-A-Bration release, and hopefully a card!

In the meantime, be sure to check out my PDF Tutorial Gallery for inspiration!  For every card which has been posted on my blog this year, there is a free tutorial. To visit the 2020 FREE Tutorial PDF Gallery, CLICK HERE. To visit the 2019 FREE Tutorial PDF Gallery, CLICK HERE.
