2018 feels like our holiday puppy year! We welcomed 2 litters to the Homestead this year - one on the day after July 4th and one on the day before Christmas. Blessed indeed, we are!
Christmas Eve evening found us welcoming 8 new puppies into the world - 4 boys and 4 girls from our very own Tachi and Cooper. We knew from Tachi's ultrasound that she was carrying a large litter. However, we were still a bit surprised when she had 8!
If you're new to Russell Homestead, let me introduce you to a few of our traditions with puppies. First, we allow our children to "name and claim" a puppy for the 8 weeks they live with us. Our children go by initials on our blog - AJ (8), CJ (7), JJ (5), MJ (3), and EJ (2). MJ is the only girl in the bunch.
Secondly, we always pick one Bible name per litter to honor God as the giver of life. With this being a Christmas Eve litter, we picked all names relating to Christmas.
Lastly, we do weekly updates for each litter. Each week, I add pictures and give you a glimpse into what life looked like for the puppies that week. (If you want to subscribe to my blog, you may do so here.)
Below, you will find their newborn pictures. Click on each one for more details on each puppy.
And I can't resist sharing some sweet sleepy pictures...
Check back on Monday for my one week update! Thanks for stopping by!
