Coco is actually registered brown. She has had two litters of puppies and with each litter and with each season, she has faded to the lovely colour she is today. She has a majority of black and brown in her background but somewhere along the line - fifth generation, I think there is white and apricot. Her own puppies (before she became my dog) were two black and one brown out of a black mating (although his litter brother was brown). The second mating was a mistake (breeder thought an eight month old male was not ready for breeding - he covered three bitches in a week). The little boy was apricot and Coco produced four beautiful black puppies. Her breeder still has one of her little girls as in this country she would not be considered big enough to breed from. Since coming to us Coco has been spayed as I think she has had enough and also we found a lump behind her nipple. It was a tumour but fortunately not malignant.

I have a feeling these two girls will give me some beautiful photos and I want to share them every where.
Here’s their first photo shoot together. They’re half sisters and I think they have a similar face. Their lips curve into a smile and it melts my heart.

Thought I'd create a space to share some of my favourites. Here's Peggy today, enjoying a quiet moment with my husband:
She will be 8 months old tomorrow and is in desperate need of a good grooming. Her ear hair especially is starting to mat. Might have to clip them nice and short.
Shopping yesterday and a woman had an extremely small white dog. I thought it was a Maltese puppy, looked like 2 pounds max. At 8 months. She said no it’s a teacup poodle. I wanted to vomit. It looked NOTHING like a poodle is supposed to look. I wish I could have gotten a picture. Then because...
