Bridget puppies are here

Recommended Posts

We have 4 beautiful puppies and to say that I am thrilled would be a understatement.  She had two girls (liver and what appears to be blue roan) and two boys (liver and black)

It has been a bit of a wild ride mostly due to being evacuated from our home because of the California wildfires the day before Bridget was due to whelp.  She ended up whelping the pups in a travel trailer in a dirt parking lot outside of Motel 6 😓.  I still cannot believe that we made it through but dogs are clearly tougher than we give them credit for.

We are back home now and it sure feels great to have the space and comfort of home.  Now the work begins!

Welcome home to your family, dogs included.  Out of control fire is a sobering experience.

Congratulations on the new members.

 

Got a visit from a sheriff a while back. The fire was glowing over the hill. Said to get ready to evacuate. Asked what my plan was. I replied I would load the dogs up and leave. He smiled and drove down to the next house. Hooked up the 5th wheel but didn't have to leave. You realize how unprepared you are about then.

Yes being evacuated is really quite a experience.  We were evacuated for 8 days during the time that Bridget was whelping and  in addition we also had a evacuation in July that lasted 7 days.  Even though we should be getting use to it :( every time the sheriff comes by and tells us we have to leave we have no plan and nothing packed.  I sure hope we do not get another evacuation before the end of summer but after two within a month I won't count on it.

Approx. 25 homes were lost on this fire in our very small community (ours was safe).  The fire the month before took out 12 homes.  It is a very devastating time no doubt about it.  I can't even think of the wildlife that is effected by these wildfires it  just breaks my heart.

The pups are almost 9 weeks old now and I have finally made my choice of which pup I will hold back.

I will be keeping the blue roan girl who is hands down the biggest pup in the litter and the most unusual looking, but it was her confidence and desire to bring things back to me that caught my eye the most.  I think we will call her River :)
