Shot while visiting my sister Carole to admire the new additions to their family. My nephew Antoine is holding one tiny newborn puppy while I’m shooting away. This one is the darkest of the lot.

  Mommy Vanille had a litter of 5 cute pups, 3 weeks ago. She hid her secret very well because it became obvious only a couple of weeks before her time came.
  Daddy Jello, much smaller than his mate, is quite proud of his feat, but we all suspect that he had to climb on a pillow in order to be tall enough for her… Clever doggie!

    LOL naughty Jello and Vanille! Perhaps she lay down! Such a cutie. Can’t wait to see them as they grow.

  • Their eyes have opened this week, and they’re starting to play with each other. :-)
