"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

What's black and white and loved all over?

Last night (I just KNEW it would be last night....why do they wait until the wee hours to have these babes? Yawn!) Mary Elizabeth's Border Collie, Feisty, had her puppies. They look like they could be little Corgi puppies, don't they? Well, except for all the white... We knew Feisty would be a good mother because she just loves all of the Corgi puppies. Mary Elizabeth looks so perky and awake, doesn't she? That photo was taken when only one or two of the bunch were born and the night was still young. Later she had a brilliant idea and invented a delicious hot coffee/chocolate/mocha drink for us about midnight or so because at that point we were desperate for caffeine! I think I got back home about 3:00 AM after mother and babies (5 girls, 1 boy) were all snuggled in and nursing quietly. I no sooner put my head down then the alarm went off, or so it seemed. I was signed up for a Myra Savant Harris canine reproduction seminar early in the morning and did not want to miss it. Such good, solid information! I already had her books so I've been familiar with the info in them, but today she shared new information that was not in the books and that will be in a new (soon!) future book which I'm looking forward to already. At the end of the seminar, she closed with a little story about puppy breath which brought tears to my eyes. You can just tell how much of a dog lover she is. Well, time to take the Corgis out and get a good nights sleep! Hurrah! -CS ^..^
