New Puppies

Yesterday, Hershey enhanced out Zoology lesson on Mammals by giving birth!
Now, we've got 4 cute chihuahua puppies!
2 girls and 2 boys!

And before anyone asks....NO, we aren't keeping them all.  One girlie puppy is going to live with Natalie, and shes named her Sugar Plum.  And there are negotiations for 2 more, that only leaves one.

Amy & Will were good doggie midwives and sat with Hershey the entire time (and through all the icky stuff too).  Hershey was a trooper and is taking good care of the babies.  She will let Chip & Licorice (her first babies last year) look into the basket, but growls at Skittles and Mack when they get near ~ could be she remembers what Mack did to the baby birds in our yard over the summer.  She doesn't mind if we hold them, as long as she can see them and we don't keep them too long!

Waiting, waiting, waiting...
