This is the last kick at the can for the puppies to play. In 4 short days Cora will be on her own and the other two puppies will be in their new homes. They best be getting as much quality time in as possible before then since they will never see each other again. I just love this photo, they clearly are having a grand ol' time!
Despite the heavy mist that was rolling up the hill from the Northumberland Strait they enjoyed a good long run in the grass. Cora is in the lead, which follows since she's clearly the Captain in their little pack, with her Number One Zayi and then Ensign Gotham.
One day the puppies will be able to run as fast as they want and their legs will actually do what they expect them to. They are still a few months from that kind of coordination so until then they will have to look on enviously as their parents gallop effortlessly across the clearing. Puppies are cute and fun but there is little I enjoy more than watching the Big Dogs (and Esme) thunder past in reckless abandon with clear expressions of joy on their beautiful faces.
