You know, I’d never seen brand new puppies before being there when Zen delivered this litter. So, I took a LOT of photos. Most were crummy, but I got a couple of really adorable ones. I’m sure you’ll agree.
I pulled an all nighter that first night… and many nights thereafter. There was no fanfare of trumpets and awesomeness when the dawn comes- there was something a billion times better. There were puppies. And some espresso. And then, a nap. Borzoi puppies are one of the best things in the universe – even better, they grow up to be borzois!
When the dust settled and it was all over, we had 5 Girls, 4 Boys and all some shade of redhead. Not surprising, given their parents. Rita said it was interesting how they arrived: Girl, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl. She said that they were probably segregated by sex in each horn of Zen’s uterus… girls on one side, and boys on the other. Doesn’t mean anything, just interesting.
I love these flashbacks. Looking back, I can see how much they’ve grown. My GOD how much they’ve grown!!! I can hardly believe it!
