Dolly Puppies Born!

Dolly finally had her puppies on the day after Mother’s Day! (We were hoping for exact timing on the holiday, but we got pretty close!) That means as we write this they are two weeks old.

Here are some photos from their first few days of life:

Moms must clean up all puppy waste in order to protect their babies from bacteria and predators.
