And the puppies were nestled all snug in their beds

Today all the Christmas puppies went to their new homes.  We had a lot of happy families here picking up their bundles of Christmas joy.  It was really a busy day full of puppy happiness.  It is so much fun to meet the new families and to see their faces when they finally get to meet their sweet new furry family member.  It is always love at first sight.  The puppies were pretty funny today.  Even though it is super cold outside and I really want the puppies to quickly do their "business" - I can't help but laugh when I watch them romp around in the snow.  We are completely snow covered here and the top layer is fairly hard so the puppies do a little bit of slipping here and there.  We also have a ton of oak tree leaves that swirl around on top of the hard snow cover which evidently are the greatest puppy toys ever.  It just takes the slightest breeze to get the oak leaves skittering across the snow and the puppies take off in a full run/slide towards the leaves and then the puppies usually overshoot their target and then slide right past the leaf. I have watched more leaf chasing/missing today and it has been downright hilarious.  We have a good size hill out back and we had one puppy slide half-way down the hill making a snow trough as he went down.  The leaf of course was still at the top of the hill so the second he came to a stop - back up the hill he ran to get that leaf.  This went on all day and it was funny every time. I am not sure why the leaves were so much more fun today than other days - but it made for a good time every time we went out.  Tonight all the puppies will meet their new families and little buddies waiting for them at their new homes.  I am sure there will be a lot of happiness and warm puppy hugs and all the puppies will be snuggled in their new beds for the night.  I am quite certain that visions of sugarplums will dance in their heads.....and maybe a few doggie bones and squeaker toys. Pleasant Dreams sweet doodles!
