We've got puppies! The boys are SO excited. It's really been a good experience for them even tho this was an unplanned pregnancy : ) About a month or so ago, we noticed our dog Maggie was getting pretty chunky and after a while decided that yes, she's prego. And this past Wednesday morning she had her litter of puppies. Eleven of them! We were pretty curious to see what they'd look like, so when they turned out all black we were surprised!

Maggie is a Golden Doodle (cross between a Golden Retriever and a Standard Poodle) and we think she may have mated with a Husky. We thought the pups would have some kind of weird poodley - wirery hair, but we were wrong. These cuties have short, fine black hair. Most of them are black with a bit of white here and there, but a few have some brown to them too.

They look so much alike but so far we have named a few you can tell apart from the rest. Elvis (the only one with a large white spot on his head), Lucy, T-bone, Snowflake, Dot (one small teeny-weeny white dot on her chest) and Striper. We are fortunate to have a heated shop so they are nice and warm out there with mama, in their plastic swimming pool.
