French Bulldog puppy madness!

Well, round one of the 2012 puppy madness kicked off on Wednesday morning, when Billie presented us with SIX beautiful French Bulldog puppies. A matched set – 3 boys, 3 girls, in a variety of fun colors. Sleep is now a thing of the past, and it’s about to get worse, with Penelope due this coming Wednesday. As if that’s not enough, I agreed to whelp a litter for a friend (back before I knew both Billie and Nell were pregnant), and Lyra is due any minute now.

Holy crap, y’all (stress sometimes makes me get southern).

Think good thoughts, and here are some pix of Billie crew of cuties in the meantime.

Billie’s Diary – Entry One

Sock Monkey Goodness

There’s a limited amount of fun one can usually expect to get for $20, but when you spend that money on a sock monkey bed that’s just perfectly puppy sized, your fun-bucks seem to go waaaay farther.

Hanna and Brigid puppy playing tug of war

After a weekend of arguing over names, we’ve finally all agreed on a name for our newest family member – Hanna, after my favorite Woody Allen movie, but minus the final ‘h’, so that we can avoid any unfortunate Miley Cyrus references.

Brigid has decided that Hanna is her new best friend. Pickle, on the other hand, has decided that Hanna is some sort of terrifying new monster, and is best barked at from a safe distance. Let’s hope that changes over time.
