Joanna & SteveO's
Here are the best pictures I've taken of these pups, so far:
(click here to see the pedigree of these puppies as well as photos of the parents)
Toby... one day shy of 9 weeks old... looking very relaxed!
Molly stands by, on guard duty, next to the fence
Bella and Bonnie... one day shy of nine weeks old.
By the way, this was NOT a staged picture!
They jumped up in the wagon totally on their own,
and sat and looked like that without any trickery by me.
A photo essay on games that
9-week-old puppies like to play:
The #1 most popular game is, of course, "chew on something"
Molly is quite good at the game of "chew on something"
but she can take it to an entirely different level...
"Chew on something and roll"
Now that they're strong enough to jump up in to the wagon on their own
another popular puppy game is "King Of The Wagon"
A variation on the game is "Queens Of The Wagon"
And finally there's "jump off the wagon"
Bella looking SO CUTE at 8 weeks old!
Yet another good shot of Bella
A very playful pose from Toby
You can barely see the specks of dirt around Jamie's mouth after he had been digging
Jamie, Bella and Molly at 8 weeks old
Molly has such a gorgeous face... I love photographing her
Bonnie stands on guard duty outside the puppy playhouse
Jamie's face has a whole bunch of freckles on it now
Jamie seems more interested in balls than the other pups do
"Exhibit B" to support my statement about Jamie
Bella at 8 weeks old
No one could resist a face that cute!
Bella and Jamie compete for the same chew toy
At 8 weeks old, they will chew on just about anything!
Molly looking very cute at 7 weeks old
(but will the nose pigment every completely fill in?)
There was no way to get all five pups to pose for a picture in the wagon
but Toby was quite cooperative
Jamie and Molly posed for a wagon photo, too
Is it a chew toy, or a puppy cigarette?
Our next door neighbor, Luna, is wary of those sharp puppy teeth (for good reason)
But she knows to hang in there until the pup runs out of energy
and then it's all good after that
Toby gives a little attitude to the photographer
I love all those freckles that are developing on Jamie's face!
This is definitely a great face, and it will be fun to see pictures of Molly as she grows up.
I'm starting to wonder if she might always have some pink areas in her nose, though.
A funny photo that makes it look like Bella is going to just grab a toy and pull it out with her left paw
This is what I see in the morning when I walk in to the Puppy Palace!
Luna, the girl next door, having fun with Bella.
Toby gets some love from AnnaBella, who lives across the street
Meanwhile, her sister, Sam, snuggles with Bonnie
Lynn Walter, a delightful woman I work with at my "real job",
came over to meet the pups in person after seeing a million photos of them at my desk.
I'd say this is the best picture I've taken of Molly, so far.
She is six weeks old here.
Bonnie takes a break inside the little puppy house
Jamie and a wagon load of chew toys
Cheryl and Dan Ekstrand drove up from LA to visit with the pups
Molly tries to get some rowdy play going with Joanna
Molly offers free eyeglass cleaning services to Dan.
Compare this to the previous picture and see how different Molly looks from the two different sides!
Jamie having fun chewing on a leaf
Joanna completely ignores the little crocodile trying to nip at her
Jamie looking totally cute at six weeks old
Bella takes a little nap while the others play on the lawn
Another photo of Bella at six weeks old
Yet another photo of Bella
A very poor attempt at "the wagon shot"
Hopefully, I can get a better version than this one in the coming weeks
Toby with Payton, the granddaughter of his new owners
The pups pose for a photo-op at 5 weeks old
The neighbor girls snuggling with the puppies
Toby meets John, one of his new owners
Some friends came over to visit the pups and brought their adorable daughter with them.
She had a great time snuggling with the pups, and my camera loved her.
Here's Bonnie at 32 days old
Bella and Jamie
Bella won this wrestling match with Bonnie
Another photo of Jamie and Bella at 32 days old
Everybody loves Toby and his spectacular tri colored markings
After an afternoon of playing on the lawn, Jamie ran out of energy
Joanna and the pups out on the lawn at 30 days old
(left to right) Jamie, Toby, Molly, Bella and Bonnie
After a hair cut, Toby's tan markings really popped
Molly at 30 days old
