Puppy Love | A newborn of a different sort

I have to post this amazing story of these little loves!

We came home from a beach vacation on a Saturday morning, dogs were all good and pet sitter said they were great! Sunday night we all went to bed early, all tired from getting home from our vacation.  It was 1.30 am and I woke up to a strange sound… I thought the dog had caught a mouse.. It was squeaking and I rushed to the crate to check out what was going on.  Low and behold there was a puppy in the crate.. I was absolutely mind blown! We had no idea we were even expecting puppies. I immediately went into mom mode and grabbed the puppy to check it out, if felt cold to me.  I ran to the studio and grabbed a space heater and went upstairs to the boys bathroom and brought momma and puppy with me.  In the bathroom I had blankets and a heater and and I was in pure shock and disbelief.. I could not believe it! I didn’t know who to call, it was now close to 2 am… I called a very good friend of mine who is involved with dog rescue groups and she helped me along on the phone as two more little puppies arrived.  I was in complete awe as I watched mother and pup bond and amazed that mom knew exactly what to do… What an amazing birth and three healthy puppies.. Now guess who is getting “fixed” next week! No more surprises like that one!  The point is no one knew she was pregnant, not me, my children, my mother, or the pet sitter.. Not friends or anyone who knew us and saw the dogs.. She did not look pregnant at all and I had NO clue.. again… Of course I had to do an official “newborn shoot” – puppy love – A newborn of a different sort!
