Here Come The Girls (Picture Heavy!!)

...I've just realised I don't actually have an even half decent picture of all seven of them together. Ignore the crappy flash and focus on the adorable puppies.

Can you find all seven?
For the first few days all they do is eat and sleep, it's a bad idea to seperate them too much from each other or their mum because it can disrupt the bonding and create rejection issues. Oddly enough a solid mass of teeny tiny puppies is in someways more adorable than singular puppies.

See, bonding.

Long Haired Miniature Dachshund Puppy Tails
I love how their little tails all stand to attention when they're feeding, they still don't have wagging down, but they'll get there.



Aren't they the cutest little balls of fluff you ever did see? To be honest they are all still to small and dependent on their mum to have much in the way of noticeable personality, but some are bigger than others and there's variation in the coats so we've managed to differentiate them all and pick names at least! After ten days they were big enough that we could steal them away from their mum one at a time for very quick photo shoots (complete with sausage dog appropriate back grounds...)

You might notice that there's something almost alphabetical about the names, you'd be right and yes that is deliberate, helps us keep track of who came from which litter and what not.

Without further ado:
The Ladies
Dita...
So named because my sister has a massive girl crush on Dita von Teese.

A little more camera shy than her namesake, this is one of the few in focus shots I have of Dita

Echo...
Originally we were going to name all the girls after flowers, but do you know how hard that is? My suggestion of Edelweiss got nixed, so we came up with Echo instead.

She looks massive in this one, she's really not.

Foxglove...
This little one is definitely a shaded red, the rest we still aren't absolutely sure about (it can take up to six weeks for their adult colours to come through and sometimes they change again before six months) so she quickly picked up the moniker Foxy that lends itself quite well to a floral full name.

She looks like she's smiling, right? That's not just me?

Gypsophilia...
I thought our 'G' could have been Gypsy Rose but we already had one pup named in homage of a burlesque dancer and my mum didn't want to take it to far, and gypsophilia are such pretty flowers that we went with that.
