While I was putting together the last post about Samba training her pups, I came across a batch of pictures that have never been posted. These were taken the same day. The pups were six weeks old and having a ball exploring the yard.

The rock pile was fascinating to them. They climbed all over it. Here Tess checks out the rocks while Gib carries a stick, just as his mama taught him.

Lola and Bailey.

Noah running across the yard.

Oh oh, my pants and possibly my shins are in for trouble from those puppy teeth.

Tess and Bailey

Wasn't Noah a cute puppy?

 Rock climbers Noah and Tess.


 Bailey on the rocks.

Baby Sky.

Noah was the smallest and when the others climbed on the rocks then jumped off, he followed them up, but was  afraid to jump down. He sat there and cried till I helped him down.

Playing 'chase'.


Tess and Lola.

 This is Gib. He went to live in Oklahoma.


Grabbing a little rest in the grass.

 Grace and Bailey heading for the action.

 This is Gib chasing Noah.

Those rocks are so interesting.

Noah, Gib and Tess.

Where is Norma Jean? With me, of course, begging for treats. She started early.

Sky and Bailey.

Noah gets a little snack from Mama. He got special treatment because he was so small. Tess is getting a bath.

Noah and Gib running across the yard.

Sky sitting on the hill.

 Gib, Lola and Noah.


 Norma Jean and Tess. They're still best friends.

This looks like Gracie just punched Sky.

I'm sure you recognize this. I use it as my header because it's one of our favorite pictures. The pups were all running with Samba. It just symbolizes joy to me.
