Welcome quintuplets!

Yesterday we welcomed 4 little puppies into our life.  This morning there was another one.  Dixie is the proud - and very tired looking - mama of FIVE puppies!  Three black and 2 brown.

No names for the puppies yet, though one of the black is trying hard for Houdini as it escaped a few times.

Yesterday Tabby told me Dixie was panting and shaking hard.  We watched her - completely clueless as to what was going on.  (Remember we had just found out Monday she was pregnant.)  I googled it and learned that she was in labor!   Goodness!  We weren't used to the idea of Dixie even being pregnant!  And now the puppies were coming?!

Of all days, Tabby had piano lesson in town yesterday afternoon.  I felt funny cancelling the lesson at the last minute so we went.  Before we left there was one little black puppy.

 When we came home there were 3 more.  And this morning there was another one, bringing the grand total to 5.

I will try to get some good photos today. 


  1. WOW! You have your hands full, gf! That's not much preparation time, is it? They look adorable!

    1. LOL - Tabby and I kept saying "we're not ready!!!!"
