Pups First Day Outside


I went to my sister's house the other day to help her watch the nine puppies when she let them out into the garden for their first outing. As you can see, they were a little nervous, but were soon persuaded to give it a go and ran around, played and generally investigated the garden for about half an hour.




This picture is for James. He wanted this pup so much, but is about to start his third year at university, so it wasn't possible. He helped my sister when Mowgli was born and fell in love with the little chap. Mowgli is going to a family with two little boys who were beside themselves when their parents bought them to see the pup.






What? I haven't got anything in my mouth!

I think this one is Milo, he's the only blonde boy (the other boy is Mowgli) and is nearly 4kgs. He's adorable and is going to a friend of my sister's so she'll see him grow up, which is lovely.





Fun pulling Tigger across the patio.

This cheeky one, is Luna and the one my sister is keeping. She's the most placid out of the nine pups and is like a cuddly teddybear. I'm glad she's keeping one, so we'll be able to see her grow up. They're a handful now, but so adorable and I'm going to miss them when they go to their new homes in about three weeks.





However, as gorgeous and cuddly as the pups are - and they really are - His Grumpiness will always be #1 in the Plotting Shed and with me. He's had to stay away from my sister's house sine the pups were born and I look forward to being able to take him there again and introduce him to Luna.

Awww Debs, they're so cute! Would Divadog be mean to them or be scared of them if you took him round?

Debs Carr said...

He's probably be terrified! He was so scared of my sister's dog (mum to the pups) when she was a puppy.

I have to wait to take him when the one she's keeping has had all her injections.

Oh, gosh! Where do we pay you for this wonderful tour? :-) You just started a puppy lust epidemic, Debs. Love the photo of them all at the door saying "You go first. No you!"

Does Grumpy give you a good sniff when you get home?

Those are the best photos I've seen for ages! They are so cute and cuddly looking. But in case Grumps is reading this - I'm glad he's still number one!

They are SO CUTE!!! We haven't had dogs since I lost my Charlie Brown about 3 years ago, but I can't wait to get another one someday.

Talli Roland said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! So cute, Debs. But of course King Grumps is the cutest of the all!

Pauline Barclay said...

They are sooooooo cute and of course Grups is so beautiful. Give him a pat from me for not being able to play with the pups xx

Debs Carr said...

They are adorable and have very individual characters already.

Suzanne Jones said...

We used to breed basset hounds so am very very envious, puppies are just so gorgeous, just a shame they have to grow up.

Aw, they are so adorable! Doesn't feel like too long ago that my Border Collie pup was that small - she's almost a year old now.

Teresa Ashby said...

Oh my goodness they are so gorgeous - you've made me all broody now! And Grumps looks very dignified and handsome. Fantastic photos!

Debs Carr said...

I'm picturing Sheepish's Bassett hound pups, I'll bet they were utterly adorable.

The pups are too sweet, though getting a little naughty. Fabulous to visit, hard work to lookmafter though.
