Back to LaConner

TIlly is looking back at Beautiful Downtown LaConner, waiting for the rest of the family to buy yet another blanket from Bunnies by the Bay, the only store for a new baby.

Wesley is showing grandpa the game he is developing.

 I hope that's a picture of me you're looking at.

Three Weeks

All eleven puppies sat for their portraits on their three week birthday. 

For some of them it was less of a 'sit' and more of a 'lean'.

Room For One More

  With only four puppies eating supper at a time, there's plenty of room and no need to shove.

Eating in Shifts

Penny enjoys a break, only feeding four puppies at a time. It's practically a vacation.

Sleep

Too many of the pictures we've taken lately are of puppies either eating or sleeping.  That's about all we can get them to do.  We've about given up on 'fetch' and the less said about 'Frisbee', the better.
