BC: Occasionally we will dog-sit Shelby or her and Mr. Todd will just stop over to visit, Bailey still LOVES her mama and Shelby has a special friendship with her too! So cute to see them together.
FC: Shelby's Puppies!
1: The puppies were born on Jan. 24. Shelby had 5 black boys and 5 brown girls. Sadly one one the black boys died a few days later. Shelby is a wonderful mama, she patiently watches over the pups when visitors come. She loves to put her head by them and snuggle them almost like a little hug. The first time we saw the puppies their eyes were still closed, but they sure knew how to find Shelby to eat!
2: Our 1st visit to see the puppies! They were so so precious! Their eye's were still closed! We ALL fell in love!
8: The puppies are getting bigger and bigger! Their eyes are now open and they are started to walk a little bit. Jonah and Aaron spent the day ice fishing and snowmobiling with Daddy and some other people, they both have wind-burn on their faces and are very TIRED! But were excited to see the pups!
9: The puppies are now at the shop. They really enjoy snuggling in front of the fire on the couch. This little black one took a little tumble and landed in the laundry basket, Shelby was checking if he was OK. The pups are now taking little steps.
11: Mom has fallen in love with the littlest, lightest colored brown girl, she is so sweet and adventurous! The other one we have fallen for is the biggest black boy, Drew is holding him. James really enjoying playing with the pups!
12: The puppies have their own little routine, play, eat sleep. The lightest brown puppy is the one that Mommy named Bailey--she has the purple ribbon. See how Shelby is ever the watchful mama in the top left picture-so so sweet.
13: One Saturday Uncle Ryan, Ryan, Hunter, Uncle Dave, Julie and Bekah came to play at the shop and meet the puppies. Boy did they have fun! All the kids had fun with the puppies, and the puppies sure were worn out by the end of the day.....so were the kids!
15: Snuggling with sweet Bailey.
16: The puppies 1st trip outside--one of many! They were quite adventurous! That is Bailey snuggling with daddy.
19: After a trip outside, the puppies warm up by the fire on the couch- naptime!
20: Here is Bailey with her mom and brothers and sisters. She also is friends with the cats who live at the shop. She pests her siblings when they want to sleep, she romps off by herself, and is very happy to see anyone who comes for a visit. She is good at chasing the boys. Here she is with her brothers in a dirt pile-her last day at the shop. Next page: L to R. The puppies chasing Shelby for a drink. The pups hopping out of their kennel to say "Hi!" Bailey with the squirrel toy she loved. Bailey fighting over the squirrel toy. Bailey chasing her mom. Patient Shelby. Bailey. Some pup drinking a spilled beer. A boy pup. Puppies playing with the wood and mom. Rest time on the couch. Dinner time, "hey let me down to get some food!" Always back to mom!! These guys were so much fun to watch!
24: Bailey with the boys on the way "home"~ Little did she know the craziness that was awaiting her there! She romped around the yard really good with the boys. I love the look of excitement on Jonah's face when he sees here! He did not know we were getting her for sure, I kept it as a surprise! He was surprised!. The neighborhood kids has a blast with her too!
26: Bailey's 1st bath. she did good! Wanted to jump out, but listened pretty good and smelled MUCH better!
28: The VanOverloop's ended up getting the biggest black dog and named him Shane.So Bailey has a constant playmate. Rarely do they stop playing, except for a RARE rest! Here is Bailey snuggling on our coats. On James birthday--Aunt Mary and Uncle Chad took all the kids and Bailey for a walk, kinda crazy, but good to get some energy out! Jonah was a trooper and walked Bailey one rainy morning before school!
