We feel so privileged
to have a hand in helping a puppy
get a start on it's new life.

When they are born,
Mom is right there with the Mother.
Mom's hands are the first thing
the puppy feels
as she breaks the sack and cuts the cord.
Then she lets the Mother take over
and get the puppy all cleaned up
and nursing properly.

And every day,
they are imprinted
and held close to our hearts
so they know they are loved.
We all love puppies
are are so excited when they come.

Mom makes goofy photos.

They get to spend some time in crates.

And then soon,
they are ready to go to their forever homes.
We rarely deliver one to it's new home,
but sometimes we go and visit the puppies.
Becky was different and we helped her new family out
by delivering her to them.
Lilly supervised packing the truck.

And Ruairi slept most of the way there.

We got really excited
because we thought we were going to
get to visit our homeland on the way.

Ruairi and his sister, Becky
spent their last night together
playing tug with each other.

And soon it was time for the best part-
putting Becky in the arms of her mom, Nancy.

We can tell by looking at their house -
Becky is going to be one loved and spoiled little girl.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

The house must seem very quiet now. Time to get a regular routine established after all the busy puppy days.

I was so excited to see the Exit 20 sign (Scotland) - that's my exit - thought maybe you were coming to see me and my boys :o) Good luck to Becky in her new home - I'm sure you'll miss her but she'll bring much love to her new family -

The picture of the mom dog and her pups was precious! How adorable puppies are! I am so glad you shared this puppy story with us and I'm sure Becky will enjoy her new home!
By the way, did you know I passed out 7 awards this morning and you were one of the winners? I felt you deserved an award for being such great bloggers and it was also my way of saying "thank you" for being one of my 1st blogger pals!

You guys have the bestest hoomans that make sure they took the bestest care of you and also took the time to find the bestest homes for the babies. I am so happy you still get to see pictures of the babies in their new home.
