Family Reunion! Two of Bennie's three brothers came to play yesterday and the pups had a marvelous time. They knew each other almost immediately, played, wrestled, came back and checked in with us every few minutes. They remembered us, too. I got very enthusiastic greetings from both Cooper and Simon!
These pups came to us in April of 2016 when they were 5 days old. They had been left as newborns in a cardboard box under a dumpster. This is the first time these three have been together since Cooper was adopted in July of 2016.
Thank you to Emma Reinhart for permission to post her photos.
What's a puppy reunion without the ritual butt sniff?
Bennie gives Cooper some love.

Leroy still wears the same size collar as he did at 3 mos. He weighs 8 lbs, which is what Bennie weighed at age 3 mos. Bennie is now 16.5 lbs and Cooper is 12 lbs. I love Cooper's grin on this one! You can see Leroy's cleft paw on this one. It certainly hasn't slowed him down at all.
Greeting their human mama!
Cooper is a beautiful dog.
Cooper here, too.

What good pups!

From our first week with the pups. Eyes and ears were still closed.
From this pile of puppies to those active smiling dogs.
