The Arrival of Bo and Mika Puppies

Mika’s one for doing things “her” way. On Saturday afternoon, she blessed us with six gorgeous puppies… about 3 days ahead of schedule. Everyone’s healthy and robust. Welcome, kids!!!

Here’s how it went down:

Mika: Lemme out, I need to potty.

Me: Sure thing.

[Elapsed time: 90 seconds.]

…and then I see Mika squatting on the patio, about to have a giant poo…. uppy???!!??!?!?!!!!?????

Me: Honey, I need a towel! First puppy arriving in 3… 2…

Second puppy, Green collar boy, born in the crate while the husband puts the whelping box in the kitchen together assoonaspossible. [See also: pups were three days early and we weren’t prepared.]

Puppy # 4 is another boy. He will get an Orange collar.

Mika’s nails are RIDICULOUSLY long, and I’m a nail snob, so I actually wonder if I can get a manicure squeezed in… between puppies.

Treating myself to a beer, since so far, it’s been easy peasy.

DAY 1: Since it’s not 1:38 pm yet, let’s say it’s still day one. We’ll post photos DAILY on Facebook until they’re 8 weeks old.

The little upside one down is the blue collar boy. Anne’s current (for no intelligent reason whatsoever) favorite.

Who is mine?! That would be the little purple collar girl. – Kim
