Milton Arrived April 7th!

After all of our eager anticipation, our little puppy finally entered the world on April 7th!  This is a very special date because my childhood dog, Brutus, was born on the same day.  The mother, Sally Jo, had a rather unusual, long labor producing a total litter of twelve puppies with a few stillborns mixed in.  The little pups were doing well initially, but some had a bit of trouble regulating their temperature and getting enough milk.

Unfortunately, the litter had more than a few casualties and only six remain, which is not a terribly unusual occurrence.  There are now five boys and one girl. 

Here are the most up-to-date posted photos:
