It's hard to believe my first babies are 16 today.
I remember that day like it was yesterday.
It was a school day. I had missed the 1st pup's arrival, but I watched as Sissy came into this world. I left for school and my mom paged me (haha beepers) throughout the day to let me know that pup #3, 4, and 5 had made their arrival. :) Unfortunately, pup #1 (Sweetie) did not make it. There were still 4 amazing little pups that I named: Sissy, Peanut Jr., Flower & Baby Dan (believe it or not I actually didn't name him).
After 8 weeks, maybe even longer, we had to part with 2 of the 4 pups.
I was so upset, but later understood that we couldn't keep them all.
Thankfully I was able to keep 2 of them and I think I picked the right 2. :)
I believe that having them helped to prepare me for the responsibility of being a mommy to Olive. Some days these 2 geriatric pups drive us absolutely crazy, but we still love them with all of our hearts and couldn't imagine our lives without them.
