We feel so blessed that our sweet Carrleigh
was able to carry and deliver
9 healthy puppies.
Do you know that Carr's normal weight
is about 22 pounds
and those 9 puppies alone
(without any of the fluids and junk that come with them)
weighed 4 1/2 pounds at birth -
they averaged 8 ounces each.
Now collectively they weigh
about 35 pounds -
Mom is getting stronger day by day
just by carrying their basket.

Other than the puppies,
and the wonderful parents they have picked,
we find ourselves being thankful
on a daily basis

Baby Powder -
it gets sprinkled in between the sheets
on their bed every time we change it -
and it makes them smell baby sweet.

These little munchkins
that keep us on our toes -
they eat 4 times a day now
and by the time we get everything cleaned,
it's time to start it all over again.

Clorox products -
where would we be without
bleach and wipes.

Aunt Lilly,
who is a great babysitter
and loves to play with the puppies.

Zorbx -
it's the best thing we've found
to combat odors -
it doesn't cover them up
or smell perfumy -
it just makes them disappear.

The custom made puppy bed
our friend, Carolyn, gave us -
and the fact that the puppies piddle
on the clean sheets the minute
it get's changed -
it's like a race to see who can be first!

And an automatic, water saver,
washer and dryer.
Don't let this picture fool you -
this is only how Mom dreams
our laundry room would look.

And their wonderful Father, Piper.
Without him,
we wouldn't have these
little bundles of joy.

And this never ending pile of laundry -
now we are using about 15 sheets per day
keeping their beds cleaned.

Gotta run -
did you hear the dryer buzzer?

Until next time,

The Rocky Creek Scotties

This is about the age they like to bite your fingers and toes too...yikes! Glad to hear Mom is doing well. This may be the biggest Scottie litter I've heard of...our largest was 6! (and I thought that was a lot of work!)

The small things in life like soap and puppies do bring a certain amount of joy, don't they?

Cute puppies! Enjoy!

Toby- The dog with a blog said...

Aww, the puppies are so cute!

Sue said...

Are you getting any rest? It's hard to believe, until you've done it, how much work is required by a litter of puppies.

It seemed like I was always wiping up puddles and picking up poop. Food goes in one end and almost instantly poop comes out the other end.

scotsmad said...

What a great start to life those puppies are having!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

BRUTUS said...

Puppies are such work!! I can't believe it!! Our friend has a litter of Frenchie right now, so mom has been talking to her ALOT!! Hmmmm..... Wonder what she's up to???

K9friend said...

Puppies are adorable but so much work. We used to foster and how well I remember...clean up, clean up, clean up!

Eric said...

Nine puppers? Clever Carrleigh! I can sniff those sweet Johnsons baby powdered warm little wrigglers from here. Perfect puppies!

Wiry wags Eric x

Brenda said...

I came by to see the pups. They sure are growing. That sure is a pile of sheets! I am not sure if I ever told you what Ladybug's full name is. It is Ladybug Nairn of Braemar. Her parents are Aberdeen of Port Sheldon and Amish Campbell of Port Sheldon.

Clive said...

A busy busy time in your house!

take care

The OP Pack said...

And the best of all those reasons to be thankful is that you have nine healthy and beautiful puppies despite all the work that comes with them. Congrats on an outstanding job.

We also want to just send a big giant hug to as we just learned of Java.. no words necessary we know what you are feeling and just want to send ginourmous hugs.. Archie doesn't think he will get all the booties knitted by the time they need them( he is still only on bootie one.) Love A+A

Yowza! That's a lot of laundry!


Miss Jean said...

I can't tell you how much I admire you for the wonderful care you give your puppies. I wish all dog breeders were this loving and caring with their dogs.

Kudos to you!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

We knew you had your hands full. This pretty much spells it all out. But we have no doubt. It is all sooooo worth it! (Those puppies just keep getting cuter and cuter!)

Jake and Fergi xxoo

Santa and Minnie said...

We love coming by to see the puppies. They sure have grown! We can understand the amount of work that went into caring for all those puppies but it's fun watching them grow and playing with them.

ScrapsofMe said...

Are any of them singing the Scottie ARROOOOOOO song yet? SHE said I sounded like I was saying OOOUUUUUUTTTTTT when I woke up as a baby.

sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff, sniff and snif....good morning to the puppies!


Ms. ~K said...

But the puppies are worth all the effort, huh?

animal lover, quilt lover said...

The pups just keep getting bigger and cuter!!!
I agree with the commenter above, I wish all dog breeders took such good care of their puppies!!!
Yes, Mother gave me a lots of things!!!!! I got more from her than I got from my Dad.
Big kiss from Bambi & Fern
Ps they are not all good things.

Hollie and Janie said...

OMG!! Those puppies are unbelievably adorable! I would love to get to play with them and love on them!! I think it might be time to start potty training...doing all that laundry must so daunting!!

Rachel said...

Oh sweet babies! I will be so sad to see them go.

Mango said...

You have a front loader? Momma is totally jelly. She got our washy machine as a wedding present 20 years ago and according to her "the damn thing just won't die."


Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh golly, the little stinkers are quite a handful for sure.You seem to be keeping up with the work though (AND your laundry room looks immaculate{{wink.wink}}!!)

Had to BOL at the picture of the sheets. We're catching up on all our reading today between trips to the potty---Mommy has her colonoscopy tomorrow so today is prep day. Ugh.
Smooches from pooches,

The Two Country Poodles said...

Wow 35 lbs all together...thats quite impressive. We remember the days of the washer/dryer going non stop and the constant lump of dirty sheets in the basket when momma had the nine foster chihuahuas.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Pee Ess: We wish we could sniff them...I bet they do sniff well!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...


You must run your machine day and night...yes, yes, I totally understand the joy of peein' on a clean towel...I still like doin' it...

What an 'venture this has been for you all!!!

Kisses, Laciegirlie
