No post yesterday because by 8pm, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. My wife and I got about an hour of sleep the night before, as my chocolate lab went into pre-labor around 10pm and delivered her puppies beginning at 2:30am, finishing up around 10:30 in the morning. Seven of the 8 survived – unfortunately, one placenta ruptured and we lost him – so now the girls have their hands full with squealing delights. It’s cute now, but will rapidly become chaotic. Looking forward to trying to rear some good puppies for some lucky families.
“I would recommend to those persons who are inclined to stagnate, whose blood is beginning to thicken sluggishly in their veins, to try keeping four dogs, two of which are puppies.”

Just like any proud “grandpa”, I have to post a picture or two. Go ahead, try to resist smiling when you see these little guys!
