New Fur Children Pictures!

This is Shelby with the red collar, a stray I picked up a year ago July who delivered 10 puppies 2 weeks later! That's a whole other story for another time. The one on the right is one of Shelby's babies, the only one of the pups that I kept, his name is Rodney (named after my little brother) and he is my little angel , I say that figuratively as he weighs about 75 pounds! Seriously though he is the sweetest thing, when he isn't busy destroying something, after all he is still a puppy! I guess when you help bring something into the world like I did him you can't help but be extra attached. In this photo, he's been bothering his Mom and she's gotten tired of it and is putting him in his place. They still have a mother/son bond after more than a year, I find that interesting as normally experts will tell you they don't retain that relationship.

I took these photos this past Saturday. When I get the camera out the pups usually have one of a couple of reactions. They either will not back up a enough to get a good picture, they want to actually stick their noses on the lens. The other is they hide!! In these Rodney is doing pretty good, he is actually trying to act like he doesn't know I'm even there!!

Here his resolve is beginning to diminish, as you can see him starting to cut his eyes in my direction trying to figure out what I might be doing all the time without actually letting me know that he is even interested.

In this one he has lost the battle, he can ignore me no longer. He looks as if to say, Mom that's enough, put the camera up!!!

I've got more photo's of the other dogs for you to meet, I'll post those another day. I don't want to overwhelm you all at once. That's alot of beauty to take in all at once!!! LOL
