There are new puppies in our family ! Soft and warm, sweet and cuddly, how can one not resist an adorable pudgy puppy to hold ? Caz, our daughter's female beagle, had her first litter of pups about 3 weeks ago. It was also the first litter of puppies that the grandchildren had seen so you can scarcely imagine the excitement their home contained. In these photos the pups are almost 3 weeks old and their eyes have just opened. Of course they are precious beyond words and the grandchildren would love to keep all 4 of them, their mother however has other ideas. Since they already have a household of 4 dogs and 5 cats keeping this litter is not an option...but I have a feeling that the children's pleas and begs will eventually net them one of these beautiful babies.
