Sometimes when we see one mamma have a huge brood of puppies and one mamma have a small sweet set, we ask the moms to share if their litters are virtually the same age. And that's what happened with Ina and Nadia this season. . . . Ina birthed eleven puppies and Nadia whelped five. This actually benefits both moms - for "sharing" means that the larger litter will become smaller and allow all puppies to have ample opportunity to nurse, while the smaller litter will gain a few peanuts and keep the puppies from gorging themselves with extra meals and growing heavy. So, we think it's a win-win situation, pending, of course, if both mammas agree!
With this season, we asked Nadia to help raise two Ina puppies . . .and it has worked beautifully so far. Both girls are exceptional mothers, and both have adjusted well to the sharing. Puppies are well-marked with all sorts of toenail polish colors, so there's no mix up. But beyond that, Ina/Nadia puppies are easily identifiable with their physical traits. . . so no worries about being switched-at-birth! :)
We do our best to provide you with the everyday-look here at Snitker Goldens. . . and sometimes this means that pups who have been eating maybe have a bit left-over gruel-face even after their puppy-face-washing, or that mammas who have been playing outside for a mommy-break rolled in the wet grass or found a muddy-spot to tip-toe (or flat-out roll) in. While we care daily for our dogs and puppy coats, we want to be real about how daily life continues to be lived. . .yes, even on the web! It's so very much like our own children. . . that we can post every perfect picture in the world, yet we know our children are not always perfect-looking. :) But they are still, none-the-less, our children, and we love them whether they've sat for Sunday dinner looking wonderful or if they've donned boots and gone outside to puddle jump. So, we hope you appreciate our everydayness as well as our studio portrait looks with our Golden Family. For real life contains them all!
Happy Puppy-Dreaming to all our new adoptive families this season! :)
