A Big Birthday

My puppies are seven years old today. I'm not the only one who still calls them the puppies. Our vet called them that recently, too. To us they'll always be the puppies. The night they were born they were put in this box to keep warm till the last one, Norma Jean was safely delivered.
Here they are with their Mom when  they were a couple days old.
Here are some early shots of my puppies.
                                               Bailey
                                      
                                              Grace

                                                
                                               Sky

                                                Lola

                                           Norma Jean              
                                         
                                                Indie (Gib)
                                  
                                              Tess
                                                  
                                                Noah       
                                                                                                                   
Some action shots as they grew.






I've tried several times lately to get some nice photos of them for their birthday but most of my efforts were blurs. With some help from Rob and some tasty treats I managed to get these.

                                             Noah
                                      

                                          Norma Jean
                               
This is their first birthday without Sky and Samba. We miss them terribly. Happy birthday Pups.

Hey you Portie Beauty Pups!

We are glad you came and we got to know you a little. You picked the right house to live at because your SueMom sure knows how to put on a doggy party!

Cheers and hugs,

Happiest of birthdays to you! I think the red container full of puppies is my favorite. I'm sure Samba and Sky were looking on and celebrating with you.

What a sweet recap---loved seeing the puppy pictures! I know it has to be a bittersweet day with two precious members missing. Always in your heart I know.

Happy birthday puppies! (My two girls will always be the puppies too, even though they are bigger than their mom now.)

It must have been very difficult without Samba and Sky... but I know everyone had a wonderful time and remembered them as well!
