Six weeks: Fall Frolicking





Look how much fun they're having in the tall grass on the hill!

Marching shoulder to shoulder
Wait--I hear something!
Reconnaissance mission


Running off

Taking a breather

I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. Demille....



A few apples have begun to drop from our tree in the back, 
and the puppies have been very curious about them.

She approaches cautiously
Takes a sniff

Then a bite 
Then decides it's better as a toy.


Uh-oh! Mom's calling...
Time for dinner, puppies!
Aw, shucks! I don't wanna go inside yet!

Hmmmph!


Lovebirds.

Mine or Yours?

Perfectly Poised.

Intense Gaze.


Run!

Twins!

Pretty Pair.

Snuggle Time.

Your ball.

There, there....
Beautiful Boy.

Some Enchanted Evening



She will find her true love...


Thatcher waits quietly on a bench in the back yard.












She spots Sawyer and gives him one of her looks.
















He comes over, joins her on the bench. She scoots a little closer. All's right with the world.

Baby's Day Out


The puppies went outside for the first time today. Here's our report:


The girl's on top of the world!














The boy goes on a hero's journey...














Here's our Junior Explorer on his way back...














Meanwhile Thatcher and her little girl enjoy a sweet mother-daughter chat....












Too much fun wears me out!






Quick break for a picnic on the lawn...









We can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings!

Puppy Tackle!

They're up and running! We can't believe how much they've grown and changed in the past week. We're dying over how cute they are, and loving their little Teddy Bear faces! Now their eyes are open, they're sitting and standing and taking their first steps...which means...PLAYTIME!

Here's a slice of the action for you:

These puppies are irresistible!

Somehow we can't help ourselves, can't seem to stay away. We have to keep going in the makeshift puppy nursery, pulling them out of the basket, holding them, playing with them, nuzzling them up close, stroking their downy coats.

Here's how they look today:

I Promise We Did More at Webelos Tonight than Play with the Puppies....

....but it sure doesn't look like it from these photos!


Nick puts the little girl right to sleep.





















Now she takes a liking to Charlie...aaawwww.

Puppy kissing Hunter.  Too cute!


Sawyer Supervises from the Sidelines

If there was ever any question whether Sawyer takes an interest in the puppies, look no further! He takes his role as protector very seriously, and would not take his eyes of these boys while they handled the pups.


Sawyer watches Hunter and Nick holding the puppies. What a terrific dad! And what adorable scouts. They were all so gentle with the pups.


















Life doesn't get much better than this!
