Millie and Michael's Puppies
"The Girls"
The babies were delivered around noon on Thursday, July 22, 2010.  They are both happy, healthy brown roan baby girls.  Within minutes, they were placing their orders for lunch and moving around actively to find the dinner table.  Momma Millie got busy serving lunch and doing the laundry and they have all been content and happy ever since.   Enjoy the photos of "the girls" and come back frequently to see how quickly they grow! 

Day 1:  Everyone is happy and content,
resting well after their busy day!

The baby with more spots weighed in at 1 lb. 3 oz. while her sister weighed 15 1/2 oz.  Millie reports that their lungs are well developed and they are more than able to "belly" up to the milk bar with no problem!  Although mostly white now, they will probably get more brown and more roaning as they grow up.
Visit us often for more photos!

Days 2, 3, 4:  The puppies are growing
like litte weeds!  They have each gained about half a pound.

We got our tails docked today.  Not bad at all!  By the way, everyone who delivered us was SO excited to see us and to see how well we are doing.  They all thought we were darling!

Days 5, 6 and 7:  Look how much we have grown!  We are looking more
like dogs now!  We have doubled our birth weight in just 7 days!
