Meet Tess’ New Puppies!


Tess and Toffee, right at the threshold of my “office” (AKA laundry room)—the Golden Gate.


Tess was pregnant with 6+ puppies (future guides for Guide Dogs for the blind). She was due April 25. I took her to Guide Dogs on Saturday . . . to the maternity ward


Toffee (Tess’s daughter, also a breeder for Guide Dogs for the Blind) is missing her mom. Tess won’t be back until late May. Quiet house with only one dog!

tesschildThis was Tess a few days before we took her to the maternity ward. She’s great with child!

And . . . now you can meet the new puppies!

    I think I have one of Tess’s puppies. Her name is Mia and she is one year old today. The house is quiet without her as she is at GDB, since she just came into season last week. She is very lovable and our first puppy. Her mum must be gentle too.
