when the puppies will start growing beards
and begin to look like Scotties.
That really doesn't start to happen
until after they leave us
and go to their furrever homes.
Maddie (Lilly's firstborn) at 8 1/2 weeks old.
This is what they will look like
when they leave us.
Mom tried to document
age appropriate Scottie looks
with Lilly as she grew -
so here goes.
you can see she already has the
Scottie ears, but no ear tufts or beard yet.
she is starting to look
like a proper Scottie;
Well she would have if she
had a proper groomer.
Grooming Lilly was Mom's first ever
attempt at grooming a dog -
she had driven Java
to the groomers before,
but that's about as close
as she had come to grooming a dog.
And she would have had
longer eyebrows and a longer beard,
but there was a little grooming accident
where Lilly zigged and Mom zagged
and OPPS! - there goes an eyebrow,
so everything else had to be trimmed up
to match it.
So you can see,
the puppies probably won't really
look like Scotties
until after they leave us,
but we will keep you pupdated
as their new Moms and Dads
send us pictures.
But we still have
6 more weeks before they start going-
so we'll enjoy them
and love on them
as much as we can now.
Dad bought a flip camcorder this past summer
and Mom is trying to learn to use it.
Because of our bandwidth allowance,
we can only upload short clips
so here's a bit of cuteness from this morning.
