Here is a new picture of the babies--Taffy at top and Huey at the bottom. This was the first day the breeder had taken them outside. They had just had their first exposure to solid food. Much of it got on their noses and feet. In about five weeks we get to bring them home. We are going to see them again next Thursday. We can hardly wait!
I think I can finish the work on Stinky Wink's grave in the next few days. I believe it has finished settling. The irises are growing so quickly. The mild winter and early spring have really moved them along. My wife and I really missed him today while we were working outside. He was always outside with us, lying close by or "helping" with the gardening chores. I hope the babies turn out to be gardeners.
Stinky Wink, we miss you every day. But I could not wish you back as sick as you were at the end. I know you are healthy now and your spirit is still here with us, waiting to help guide your new brothers in ways we'll never understand or see. And I know you are waiting for the day that we will join you, my besses puppo!
