Introducing...pretty and pretty!!!

 Over the weekend, we did get 2 new family members.  This was during a Rescues' big adoption weekend...and we already had an application in, before our losses.  With our 2 'ranch dogs' getting older and the squirrel and rabbit population exploding, we had decided to get a couple of ranch dogs to help out.   I wanted young adults as we do live on 10 acres.  But dh wanted pups, he wants to develop a bond with them like he has with our Kema.   He won.  and here are the 'girls'.

Dh wanted to name them pooper and poopsie...but I won!! so here is Bonny (a nod to dh's Scottish roots)
 And Bella, so pretty and pretty....
And of course Winston is very curious.  Watch out pups, he is not called the "velociraptor' for nothing!  Ha!  No, pups are not allowed inside (though I want them to) they are 'ranch dogs'.  They are sleeping in  a crate and kept in the crate when no one is home during the day(right now)...for their safety.

 Kema, has been very patient, but is not that sure about this 'invasion'.  Both dogs no longer sleep on the porch (where the kennel is), dh says it is because of the girls.  siiiiiigh
 And here they are all tuckered out after a visit from dgd.   (pictured above with Bella at the pet store when we picked them out)   Dgd #2, who is 2 years old, was interested but did not 'play' with the girls, in fact, when they tried to climb on her, she announced that 'it is time for puppies to go back'
But as the family left, she also said the puppies 'need to live at her house'.

The Rescue had a good weekend.  Think it was 48 pups, dogs, cats, kittens adopted that first day and an additional 11 the next.   We actually were looking at one of their sisters, a tan pup with black markings on her face and tail...she was a bit fluffier also.  BUT another couple were also interested in though we expressed interest first, we backed off...better for 3 dogs to find homes than just 2.  Plus fluffy fur and ranch...not always a good match.  Just ask Kema.
