New Things

This is the addition to our family. A few weeks a stray do came to Uncle Jeff and Aunt Marta's and never left. She came pregnant. So long story short, Uncle and Auntie are going away for this weekend and next. So we offered to look after the dog Gypsy. She was going to come over Tuesday morning without puppies. Well during the night she had them. So Jeff packed her and the pups up (only hours old) and headed to our house. It has been a week of adjustments for everyone here. Ranger is learning his limits, Gypsy is trying to settle in with 7 pups and I'm trying to keep track of everyone and remember when they were fed and let outside for a bathroom break! There are 2 brown, 4 black and 1 tan puppy. This picture was taken when they were a day old.
Rain has been falling this week so out comes the Lego. This was the first time Russell built this tow truck he got for his birthday. Russell took this picture.
Here is a picture Chloe took of her stable she built with Uncle Jeff. Her and need to paint it one day.
Russell took this picture of the rain on his window.
The puppies 4 days old. They are starting to get loose skin. Mommy's milk came in Thursday night so now the pups are not attached to her all the time. They have grown so much in a few days. Gypsy is so good with the kids playing with her babies. She is getting use to Ranger. Both adult dogs can be out in the yard together with no problems. They will learn to get along in the garage as the pups get older.
I'm sure these puppies will be in the house in a little bit. The first thing the kids do when they wake up is head for the garage. Jeff and Marta are not keeping any of the puppies and neither are we. We will enjoy them, make the kid trained, but they are not staying!!
It amazes me how they can breathe when they are stacked in the bed. Gypsy is getting food fit for a queen. I want her to keep up her milk production. She gets oatmeal porridge 1-2 times a day and turketts for meal. She is not too fond of cornmeal in with the oats. When their eyes are open, I will get better pictures and we may bring them in the house.

That is a cute picture of Chloe. Love her! The puppies are cute, too. Soon, they will grow into their own and be busy!
