This week the puppies learned how to truly enjoy mushy food, and therefore most of the time they were quite messy looking. Happy, but messy. We had to do a bit of grooming before this photo shoot. I felt like the mother of youngsters who were busy enjoying their summer vacation “down at the pond,” or “on the dirt path around the farm,” on an early Sunday morning trying to get them ready for Sunday school! I was scrubbing their little faces with a wash cloth and then Robert was brushing them out before we took the pictures!
