week 8 and going home

 Nod napping the morning he left for his new home.  He was a very funny puppy to raise and very photogenic- i have more great photos of him than any other Moonsong puppy.  He had/has a lot of attitude and will be a lot of joy to his new family in Portland, Oregon. His new owners want to call him Finn, so i fit that into his official Nursery Rhyme name- Moonsong Finnegan Begin Again.
Wink and nod playing in my front yard while I work on the lawn.  Nod is wondering why the other dogs aren't out too!
 
 Hmm... do I jump into the lawn or do I play here...
 I'll just lay here and play with my sister's ears. 
 Yummm, weeds taste good.
 What a cute expression!!
 Wink curls up and naps in a dog bed.  Wink is now Moonsong's Over in the Meadow and is keeping her call name.  Her Rhyme can be seen here: http://www.lanterntree.com/nurseryrhymes/OverInTheMeadow.html
 Wink and Nod cuddle with Honey.  Nod is sooo big already! 
 Snooze

 Wink entices Chili to play in the field
 Wink and her mom wrestle
 Honey teaches Wink to mouth wrestle
Nod found an old plastic cup in the field and it is off to the races.  He is enjoying the last day he spent with his pack.

Week 5 and 6

Nod relaxes in the grass. You can really see his wooly coat coming in now!
Shiny floors are no problem for these pups!

Even with only two pups there is less room at the milk bar



Wink fell asleep in her food bowl.

Nod is wondering what Chalu is doing- yes, he did get on the couch by himself.

Why play with toys when the basket tastes so good

I have no idea why but this is the favorite squeeky toy du jour at my house. All the dogs love it.

5 weeks old old and Nod already has the Chinook twist down when sleeping

Wink prefers a more normal position to soak up the sun

Wink looks nicely built so far

Look at Nod's big fluffy butt!



Peter and Nod have some male bonding time

Saluki ears make nice toys. Watcher is very tolerant- which means she is missing half her ears now!

Katsuk checks in on Chalu play time with the pups



Time for some visitors. The neighbor girls come over to play with the dogs often and they were very excited to get to play with puppies this time.

What is better than kids and puppies?

stopping to smell the flowers

Gotcha
