It’s hard to tell size in photographs, but to give you a better idea,
these sweet little guys are in an egg box.
Normally an egg box holds a few cartons of eggs, but in this case it held:
A heating pad, a wool vest, and five chubby 10 day old puppies.
Their ears have just come down at this point,
but their eyes remain tightly closed.
It was their birthday yesterday, they turned Seven!
Sometimes I wonder what their reaction would be,
if I offered them a warm bottle now….

Truthfully, Wolfie wasn’t really lonesome at all… the rest of his pack was just in the backyard, and they were all howling together with the big old train as it passed by the ranch blowing it’s whistle. These guys love any excuse to sing together, and oh what a song!
