It's Raining Puppies!

Nick and I have always agreed on one thing- we are not puppy people. Don't get me wrong, I love the wiggle butts, puppy breath, big curious eyes, fat little tummies, and puppy clumsiness but I can't take the constant peeing, pooping, chewing, and needle teeth. Plus, the Spike's House residents prefer sleeping 23 hours a day and puppies really mess that up for them. Despite my efforts to avoid having puppies, we had about six puppies over the past month. I feel like I run a puppy motel!

Oh, and while we had this rotating door of puppies, we also still had Jillian! Nick was so thrilled!

These babies came home from NC with us after a nice Christmas visit with my family. We brought four home, three are pictured. 

Little cow babies!

Spike, the definition of a couch potato, is not thrilled about puppy needle teeth!

Bella is the only one who really loves puppies and puppies LOVE Bella!

After the four moo cow puppies in to a long term foster home we got this sweet little girl. Lacey came in to BARCS and I scooped her up and brought her home at about 6 weeks old. 

Dog pajamas are a must!

And while we still had Lacey.. and Jillian.. Boldin came to our house. Boldin, named after the Ravens WR, is a little ball of fire! He is about 5 weeks in this picture and we really have no idea what mix he is. We've hear everything from pit bull, lab, smaller terrier, you name it. 

Poor Boldin, we don't have any small male dog clothes! Well, we didn't, I fixed that issue :)

 I have never seen two dogs have more of a love affair with each other than Boldin and Jillian. He terrorized her and she loved every.single.minute of it! She never let him out of her sight and if Lacey played too hard with Boldin, Jillian sat on Lacey.

Here is Boldin sleeping in Jillian's big paws :)

Poor Jillian just wanted to sleep! Well, so did Boldin apparently.

This might be my favorite dog picture. Ever.

So, there is our puppy run. As of today Boldin still needs a home but is not of age yet, the moo cow puppies all have homes pending, Lacey already went to her new home aaaand Jillian left :( I'm very happy for her, her new dad is nothing short of amazing and has been so wonderful with Jillian, but I miss her terribly. When we went to drop Jillian off at her new home I thought I could hold it together but I think I scared Mike, her new dad, with the complete hysterical state I was in when it was finally time to get my last Jillian kisses and leave. Lucky for me, Mike has been wonderful about sending me pictures!


  1. I think this is my favorite post yet, though the dim Blondie cracked me up too. Bella snuggling the puppies, Jillian sitting on Lacey for playing too rough with Boldin, and of course, the infamous picture of Boldin sleeping on Jillian's head. Love it. Love it all.

  2. I'm not sure why some of the pictures aren't showing up anymore but bear with me, I'm working on it!
