PUPPIES PAST AND PRESENT

On December 1, 2008,
Mom got the joy
of delivering her first Scottie puppy.
And was she ever excited when she saw
that it was a Wheaten -
It was hard for her to believe
that a dog as black as Lilly
could have a wheaten puppy.
She named this first puppy, Lacey.
Lacey's name is now
Sweet Petite Madeline -
Maddie for short.


Three "buglets" came that day -
all healthy, squirming and crying.
The second one was a Wheaten boy
that Mom called Polar -
his peeps named him, McDhubh (MacDoo).


After two Wheatens,
Lilly finally gave birth to a
black-brindle boy
that Mom named Mr. T
because he had a white "t"
on his chest.
But now his name is
Obie Trevino.


This is one of our favorite pictures
of Maddie with her parents -
it looks like her Dad, Piper,
is giving her advice,
while her Mom, Lilly,
looks on -
you can barely see Lilly's black nose
in the foreground.


Soon, it was time to take
their 8 week portraits.

Obie was the first to leave
for his new home -
even though we knew
he was going to a wonderful home,
our Mom cried all day
the day before he left.


Sweet little Maddie
was the last one to leave us.


Here is Maddie now -
a beautiful young lady
who will be 2 years old tomorrow.


Obie was an only "kid"
in his family for a couple of months -
his big sister, Oreo,
went to the Rainbow Bridge
shortly after he went to live with them -
but now he has a little sister, Ebony
(on the right)
and a human brother, Trystian.

Unfortunately,
shortly after McDhubh
went to his new home,
he was involved in a tragic accident -
we still grieve for him.

But we are always thrilled
to get to know all of the wonderful people
that our puppies introduce us to.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi
