Puppy Pictures!

The transport on Saturday went really well. We ended up with nine dogs instead of eleven. (Puppy millers are notorious for changing things at the last minute.) So, we had two adult females and seven puppies. One of the females didn’t get along with other females, so she was crated by herself. Then we had the four young puppies in a crate together, one of the older puppies and the other female in a crate together, and the remaining two older puppies were tethered. Talk about a car full of dogs!!

Here are some pictures. We had very little time in between transfers, so all of these were taken in the car. And unfortunately I didn’t get pics of all the dogs.

These little guys were 3 months old and SO adorable! I'd attempt to take one out at at time, and they'd all escape. They're all supposed to be special needs puppies, but the only thing I could see wrong was that one had one leg that was short and a bit deformed. The others seemed fine. But they're going to the vet to get checked out!

This was one of the 5-month-old puppies. He was very shy, but sweet, and so handsome. And ENORMOUS! If he's that big at 5 months I can't imagine what he'll look like full grown! Perhaps the father wasn't a Shiba and that's why they got rid of them. Who knows.

This sweet boy was the puppy that had the short leg, which you can't see in the picture. He was so nice and calm, and just as sweet as can be. And those floppy ears just kill me!

Another picture of the same pup as above. Don't you just want to cuddle him? I did, and that's why my coat is covered in fur. But well-worth the trip to the dry cleaner.

And this is the guy that we fell in love with. He's one of the 5-month-old puppies, and is another really big one. His paws are much bigger than those of my my full-grown Shibas! But he was such a lover. Gentle and kind, yet still playful, he melted our hearts. I'm going to keep my eye on him, and we may just have to snatch him up!

Needless to say, I couldn’t keep my hands off them the entire trip. I mean, really. Who could? I even climbed across the top of the crates to get back to the two dudes that were tethered in the back. Good thing I’m flexible.

Thanks so much to my husband for driving so that I could play with the dogs. And thanks to him for putting up with my baby talk for two hours. )It’s impossible for me to play with a dog and NOT use baby talk.) And more thanks to him for coming with me. There’s no way I could have done it by myself.

Now, the dogs are in foster homes being evaulated, and will be up for adoption soon! If you’re interesting in adopting, go to www.savingshibas.com

    They are SO cute. Not cute enough that I’d want to take them out for walks and clean up after them, but cute.

      See, I’m already walking/caring for two, so adding a third is nothing. Actually, walking three would probably be a bit of a challenge.

    Damn you. Now I want a dog. And I can hardly handle my 3-lb cat.

      Awww, thanks!! Days like that are so awesome!! I found out that the big boy that I wanted is already spoken for. 😦 But I’m sure there will be lots more opportunities!

    I was looking at your beautiful pictures the other night and had my first ever dream about owning a dog. Nice work!

      Tanna, where have you been? I’ve been missing your blog posts! Glad I could suck you in with my pictures. My evil plan is working.

      Yes, they are! And I found out that the boy at the bottom that we wanted so bad is already taken. How dare they take MY dog???? But seriously, do I need three?? Probably not.

    I can’t believe you’re thinking of keeping ANOTHER one! That’s funny, after you said you wouldn’t. Very cute, though.

      They suck you in, with those faces!! But he’s already being adopted by another family. Probably for the best!

    I’m really impressed that you didn’t end up with 9 new puppies.

    precious precious faces.

    Especially the ‘special needs’ one. I have a soft spot for those little guys.

      Yes! The one with the short leg was so precious. He didn’t seem to even care that his leg was shorter. It would be so wonderful if he could go to a family with a special needs child!
