I was goofing around with the dogs today and realized I had 4 generations of them, so I tried to pose them for some photos.
From left: Usher, grandsire to the pups, next to him is his mama (pups' great granddam) Puffin, and Usher's daughter Panda, dam of the pups.
I only had my cheap little camera, so I took a bunch of duds to get a few halfway decent, in-focus shots. I liked this one though, since it shows all the little subplots: pups realized their mom Panda couldn't get away, and latched on to her. They're almost 9 wks., and she's been trying to wean them the last 3. Note her long-suffering expression. Big bad stud dog Usher got tired of all that sissy posing and especially of sharp little puppy teeth (he really wanted to chase/bark at the horses who were rattling their buckets to be fed); and Perfect Puffin stayed put.
