puppies

Yesterday morning, our Irish terrier (Orla) gave birth!  The first was sadly stillborn, but the next seven are very healthy.  Two girls, five guys.  One of the guys is the runt of the litter, about half of the size of the others, so we’ll be watching out for him.  We co-own them with their breeder, so if you need a little bundle’o’joy in your life, I can tell you who to call.

I’ve started writing a poetry cycle about the birthing.  So maybe I’ll post that here if it gets published somewhere… eventually… so don’t hold your breath… haha
