new puppies

I see that Kay has shared the news of the long awaited arrival of the puppies.

Did she mention that it was a hell of a lot of hard work? It took from midnight till dawn to get them all out. I was exhausted.

And you know, they look a lot like little black rats... so I've been a wee bit confused about what you're supposed to do with them.

They were pretty clear what they wanted though... seems that I am now the local milk bar.

I've had a bit of a rest now and something to eat and I'm starting to warm to the little tackers. They snuffle around a lot and are actually quite endearing.

I've been off my food since the big event and Kay has been working overtime to find something that I will eat.

She finally had a brainwave and rushed off to Macca's for a couple of cheeseburgers, hold the pickles. They were scrumptious and I ate them in a flash!

I also polished off a block of cheese and several arrowroot biscuits. So all in all, not doing too badly here.


  1. How cute are the puppies?!!! We LOVE puppies. Aw, you are being such a good mum. Good news you got some food into ya. You need all the energy you can get now, being a mum and all. Very exciting. Keep us posted on the happenings at the Milk Bar.
    Love, Inky and Molly

  2. Oh they are beautiful! Ruby, you clever thing! I see you are keeping them lovely and warm with a hot water bottle. Enjoy the special food!

  3. Congratulations Ruby. Well done. I'm one of seven - it's a good number. So, do I see one with a little pink ribbon? Does that mean 1 girl and six boys? Splendid!
