This was Samba two years ago today. She was carrying nine puppies, but had only gained about five pounds and although she was rounder than normal, she was not very big.
Her puppies were due on the 27th, but they were in a hurry then, just as they are now.
Starting at 11:11 PM on October 25th and finishing at 6:40 AM on October 26th, she produced nine beautiful babies.
Number 8 didn't make it, but the others were strong and healthy.
They were a joy then and continue to bring me happiness and laughter.
Happy second birthday to Tess, Sky, Lola, Gracie, Bailey, Gib, Noah and Norma Jean.
This is Samba today. She was a great mom and still enjoys her pups.
