Cuteness Overload

Be prepared to be overwhelmed with cuteness. We went to visit Emma and her TEN pups on Saturday.

(if you haven’t read the story about Emma’s journey, start HERE.)

We ended up having a little mini photo shoot.

Turns out taking photos of ten four-week old pups can be the highlight of your weekend.

As you can imagine, there was a whole lot of high pitched baby-talkin’ voices. ‘A’ specializes in this, truly.

“Come here wittle cutie patootie – kiss, kiss, kiss”

(I want to take this boy home with me!)

“Ohhh you so cute, aren’t you?! Smoochie, smoochie my little Georgie boy!”

I mean, seriously. These little nuggets are too darn cute. And they are at that age where they are just starting to cruise around on their wobbly little legs; which some proved to be very good at. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a little kiss. And they love to suck on your fingers and nibble on your shoelaces. I didn’t mind one bit.

If you’re wondering what breed these pups are, my best answer is Heinz 57. Both parents are mixed breeds. Emma is a pittie mix and dad is, well, your best guess. See pictures of mom and dad here.

I can already tell you who the trouble maker is going to be:

The hardest part: keeping track of who was done and who we still needed to snap photos of.

Solution: bucket-o-puppies

The next challenge, five black puppies with a little bit of white on their chest and feet, so we had to write down who-was-who on a sheet of paper.

We took a total of about 200 photos between Emily and I. We *might* be a little obsessed.

If you are interested in adopting one of these puppies, you can fill out an application on Secondhand Hounds website. Puppies will be available for adoption at 8 weeks old (which will be at the end of June).

Until next time…!

    Oh my gosh, these puppies are just so cute. I LOVE the black ones with the white chests the best (hmm, can’t imagine why). Can’t wait to see more pics the next time you see them.

    Awe – you know how much I love them (I talk too much on Instagram about them!!!!). Still trying to convince hubby to let me adopt one – after the look I got from my baby pitty today though when I showed her the video of the pups, I might be disowned as a “Pitbull Mama” by her!!!! She was not having the idea of someone coming in and taking her BABY status!!!!!

    Thanks for all you have done for Mama Emma and these pups! You are amazing!!!

    Puppy breath! OMD … they are absolutely beautiful. I really wish I could have a puppy but sadly I can’t so I will have to just enjoy these photos and dream of puppy breath. I have been following the story since you first wrote about Rusty and Emma and wondered how Rusty the Dad was doing?
    This was a heart tugging story and what a photographic ending. These guys are adorable and hopefully they find wonderful homes quickly.
