Meet the Gang!

Okay. Here are the stats (I'm finally getting around to it). We're calling each puppy by the color of his/her rickrack color band. It will be up to the new owners to name them. :o)

So here are the vital statistics (abbreviate version). All pups are yellow Labrador retrievers, but the breed standard states that yellow can mean anything from nearly white/cream to fox red. The colors I list are all within the spectrum of that standard.

your grandchildren are divine, my 2 labs are getting older now and beginning to slow down, it is going to be lovely watching this little brood grow into mischievious little scamps- do you think you will keep one of them?

Except for the lack of sleep I'm sure your getting you must be in heaven. Those puppies are all adorable.

Hi, Kate,

Though we'd love to, I don't think we'll be keeping one from this (although we keep second-guessing that decision!). And I'm sure by the time the pups are ready to go (at 8 weeks), I'll welcome the break. :o)

Time will tell!

Hey there, Finn's Dad.

If we're in heaven over these precious little ones now (and we are!), I can't imagine where we'll be in two weeks when their eyes open, their ears unseal, and they begin stumbling around up on those paws! :o)

And yes, I'm absolutely exhausted. All totaled, I've only had about 12 hours sleep in the last five days.

But it's a short, joyful season that will pass quickly enough. I can sleep more in a couple weeks!

Thanks for commenting!
Joan
