The blessed event has happened! Sorry this is a little late -- I was having too much fun chatting at the DWB Pawty all weekend. It was a blast!
Josie went into labor at dinner this past Tuesday the 24th and had all her puppies by midnight. This picture was taken the morning of the 25th when they were about 12 hours old. Four healthy babies, 3 girls and one boy. Mom wants to call them Eeny Meeny Miney and Moe, but I think Aunt Linda has other plans for them! They sure are big babies for Bedlingtons, but they're sweet little things (according to Mom). They all have homes already! It's just hard to find Bedlington puppies so Auntie Linda has to take reservations a lot of times.
The babies are born black if they are going to be "blue" and will turn grey/white or nearly so at 6 months (like Josie here). They have black eyes and black noses. I myself am a "sandy" or "liver" color so I was born dark brown and turned light brown/beige by 6 months old. I have brown eyes and a brown nose. We Bedlingtons do that!
Josie had the babies at Aunt Linda's 'cause Linda knows how to birth baby puppies; Mom just knows how to train us. Mom would love to have another puppy at our house but I wouldn't!! This is my house too and I want no more puppies here. They're too much trouble! So Josie is over there for 2 months or until the puppies are weaned and then she can come home and have fun with us again. Sure is quiet around here without her. She usually starts the trouble around here which is fun!
I'll have more pictures later when Mom can get over there with her camera again --
