8 Weeks Old (almost), Friday, August 19
Summer is in full swing - with temps in the mid 80's today we all decided to bring our photo shoot to Grandma's pool. The pups enjoyed playing outside with all the kiddos (Lydia's, Destiny's and some out of town cousins/grands that were visiting). The pups got plenty of love and attention. They even managed to have a bit of water time (with their drinking water). Oh puppies! :-)

4 Weeks Old, Monday, July 25
It was a beautiful (though hot) sunny day, so we opted for an outdoor photo shoot. The pups were so agreeable (they just love to be held at this age) and we were able to get some pretty cute shots.

Eating. Sleeping. Eating. Sleeping. Mixing it up with a little more sleep. The dog days of summer are here :-) Nabisco has rich and plentiful milk, as the little round bellies and glossy fur testify! Meet the Australia litter!
Sydney: The only girl of this litter, Sydney has the curliest coat. We expect she will be a medium apricot color with a very curly coat at full growth.
Maitland: Small and sleek, Maitland has a glossy coat that will only be wavy at full growth, and with his fine bone structure we expect he will mature at the low end of the weight spectrum, close to 20 pounds. Jack nicknamed him Spot for the two bright spots on his head.
Brisbane: Tied with Sydney for biggest pup of the litter, Brisbane has a moderately curly apricot coat with a slightly lighter stripe down his spine (which is why Jack has been calling him Stripey). The broad white stripe on his head and bright white on his chest are bold and handsome!
Melbourne: This little guy has the palest apricot coat - almost a buff color but still with the honey highlights that make him an apricot. Melbourne is a feisty fellow and was "growling" (sounded like a purr!) when I placed him on the scale, where he weighed almost as much as his bigger brother and sister.
Nabisco's Pups Are Here!! Saturday, June 25, 2016
This weekend Nabisco welcomed four beautiful apricot pups! Labor and delivery went smoothly and Nabisco made it look easy. All of the pups are strong and healthy and growing fast on Nabisco's rich milk. Jack chose the name theme: cities in Australia. More pics to come later.
