I have to admit I was getting nervous when our puppies hit the 8-week-old mark right before Thanksgiving, and we still had 7 left. Last Friday night we put an ad in the local newspaper (online), and by Saturday night they were all sold!
Now I'm feeling just a tinge of empty nest syndrome. I didn't expect them to go so fast. And it's NOT that I miss having to buy truckloads of dog food, or cleaning up their messes. But I do kind of miss how all 8 of them would follow me around the yard in this little pack. They were just the cutest little things. *sigh*
Next Saturday we will be delivering one of them to a little girl for her 1st birthday. I cannot tell you how happy I am about the homes they all went to. We met each family and they were such nice people. I really enjoyed how excited the kids (and adults) were about getting them.
Of course, we kept one of the puppies. We chose the littlest one of the litter because she is small and petite like Ginger. But she has a white coat which I think will be so pretty when she gets older. Anyway, here's a picture of SUGAR:
She's a cute little thing, don't you think?
