Momma Bella and Babies

Bella started having her puppies around 12:30PM and averaged one an hour. She is now the proud momma of 5 boys and 4 girls though I am not sure she is finished yet. I sat with her until an hour ago. She seemed okay with my coming inside for a much needed shower and a bite to eat. I have the baby monitor on so I can listen to her and the puppies. Will go out again soon to check and also make sure momma and babies are okay and settled for the night. Bella is being the perfect mom. Those babies have had more baths than any puppy ever. She even cleans them while they are nursing! They are all chubby and of course adorable. Will post more pics tomorrow along with updated ones of Tinker and her babies. Lots and lots of puppies around the homestead!
