WSU, Pullman

Mike had a few hours between projects last Monday (April 25) and suggested we drive to Pullman to view a litter of German Shorthair pups belonging to an acquaintance. The sire of these pups is a litter  mate of our Bess.

It was a big litter. Count ‘em – nine! I was only able to get this one picture of all nine.

The pups are five weeks old, so the owners see the light at the end of the tunnel. They said it wasn’t so bad now that the pups are sleeping through the night. They raised this litter because their son wanted a dog out of their female. Naturally, he got first pick. Eight have been spoken for, and they anticipated that the ninth would be gone soon.
The pups had just finished their play session in the pen when we showed up. As you can see, it’s naptime.

Well, it might have been us with a litter of pups, but Bess would have nothing to do with the suiter Mike chose for her, so that was that. (Thank goodness!) KW

So cute!!! I love the one sleeping in its back. Did you cuddle anybody?

I like the little fellow with his snout in the water bowl, using the ball as a pillow.

No, I didn't cuddle a puppy. I didn't have a place to sit. I contented myself with taking pictures.

I thought of you, though, Hallie. A woman was leaving just as we came, and the owners said that she had seen the dogs in the play pen and called, "Are those German Shorthair pups?" "Our Hallie would do that," I thought to myself.
