Ruby's Pups Are Born!!

It started around 5 am this morning and she finally had the first puppy around 8:30am. She was trying to hide wherever she could when the contractions started...

She had a hard days work ahead of her.

First came three back to back. Little girl one, little boy two, and then another little girl.

Ruby was very tired at this point. I was thinking surely there must be more. And there was. She was just taking a little much-needed break! I did not mind one myself. I did get a couple winks of sleep earlier that night! I love this picture of little boy two resting on his Mama's arm.

Now we have five! Two boys and three girls. Grace is going to be ecstatic when she gets back from Minnesota!

She is a crazy good mother, as I knew she would be!

She is very worn out, but is not allowing herself to rest much because she is busy tending to the beautiful new creations!

Yes, she is doing a great job still. Grace was so happy to see them and hold them. They are all doing good and very healthy, already developing their own little personalities!
