Lizzie's Litter
at 5 1/2 weeks
Personalities are beginning to develop
and we take the first individual "portraits"

3 pups playing
3 pups on a rug
Our first trip out of the nursery.

All tuckered out on our own blanket.

Abby reluctantly poses
Abby looking sad
Abby isn't planning to be a show dog so she doesn't think she needs to practice.

Besides, she already knows Gene & Em think she's the cutest one in the litter.

Lefty practices show stance
Lefty thinks she'd rather play with her brothers and sisters than stand still.

I can do it all by myself!
Troubles on the way
"Turn the spot light on me - I'm doin' what comes naturally," says the brindle and white boy.

As soon as she lets go of me, I'm outta here!


The face of Trouble
I know I've got an adorable face. (And no, I'm not a chocolate cuz I've got both black and brown hairs and a black nose.)

C'mon now, enough is enough and I've got places to go and things I wanna do!
