Finn x Kelly Ann

The Finnegan x Kelly Ann4th of July Quintet” were born on July 4, 2010: 3 boys and 2 girls weighing in from 14 to 18 oz. My most heartfelt thanks go to dear friend Christine who stayed up all night bringing these pups into the world, and tried in vain to save the two who didn’t make it — but was able to save Kelly Ann from an emergency C-section.

The “Firecracker Five” are growing leaps and bounds! Here are some photos:

Shortly after all the pups were whelped! Kelly Ann is already a good momma.

Here’s a little video of the puppies beginning to interact and play at 2 1/2 weeks old.

26 Day “Puppy Portraits.”

Watch the SMACKDOWN video. Girls rule & boys drool!

I was not able to see the pups from 3 1/2 to 8 weeks, but now two of them, Ferris (Gold Boy) and Pika (Blue Boy), are in their new homes! Ferris has gone to live with our dear friends Heidi and Tom Mueller and their Berner-Lab mix Mica on Bainbridge Island, WA and is now known as “Ferris Mueller” :-). May every day be his “Day Off”!

Here is Ferris again, at home on Bainbridge Island — doing what he does best — and in a position we see his Father Foo do every night! :-).

Ferris certainly is growing into a dead-ringer for his Papa Finnegan!

Introducing Pika! This handsome dude has gone to live in Cambridge MA (and attend Harvard University) with his new mom and dad Claudia and Larry. He will get to train in rally, obedience, tracking, field work — and most of all just have fun and be adored by his family and legion of fans.
