I had a conversation with a potential puppy family last year on she commented that when looking at pictures from other breeders she noticed they looked a little staged and often outside. She said that she liked that she could see the girls really are a big part of our lives and in our home 100%. I have a ton of pictures that I don’t share because I’m worried of the clutter you might see in the background or a bag of chips or maybe even the toilet (puppies spend their first two weeks in the bathroom – keeps them away from the other dogs and easier to keep that space a higher temp than the rest of us prefer). But after thinking about it I’m going to start showing more every day pics from our house.
These first 2 don’t look super delicious unless you are a dog but here are some examples of what the girls eat. The first pic is ground chicken with bones and organs and some fresh green tripe. The second is emu.
Next pictures are from the cluttered kitchen table, which become my workspace instead of my office upstairs. I was finishing my coffee and doing some boring accounting for my day job that pays the mortgage and Shakira wanted to get up in my lap for some cuddles. The girls like to be close but they aren’t the biggest cuddles so this moment felt really good and I wanted to take a picture but this is a perfect example of one that I wouldn’t normally share and what a shame because it was a great moment!
These were just taken in our room the other day. Andru was out of town and at the end of the work day I was freezing and went upstairs and got in bed and the girls all came up and took a little nap. The lighting was bad and I had the clutter on the dresser but they don’t care about that stuff and I love having them on our bed for cuddle time. They all sleep in the crates at night which is a safe, comfortable place for them but this extra time together always makes me feel good.
Those are just a few that I’ve taken recently. I’ll continue to share pics that you’ll see are definitely not staged and hopeful show how much we love these girls and what a big part of they are in our lives.
