An update, you ask? Well, the short version is this: These two are growing like weeds!! See photographic evidence below.
We adopted Okra (left) and Fletcher on July 19. They were 10 weeks old on July 21. And sweet little balls of fur and love.
Last week I insisted that we try to recreate our adoption-day photo. It was 8 weeks to the day from our first family photo and I really wanted to show how much they had grown while we could still pick them up. It didn’t go well. Holding a squirming pup whose body stretches to your knees while trying to take a selfie isn’t ideal.
And they give the best puppy kisses.
They play and wrestle and Fletcher wants his belly rubbed at every opportunity.
Okra’s favorite napping position is with her head hanging off whatever her body is sleeping on. Here, her body is on the dog bed and her head is on the floor with her nose in the dog crate.
At first, Milly refused to play with the pups. But now, they are the Three Amigos.
Below is a good look at their growth. The top photo is when they were probably 11 or 12 weeks old. The second photo is at 19 weeks.
More updates are sure to come as they continue to change by the minute! I swear Fletcher’s legs are longer today than they were yesterday. They grow faster than the squash in the garden! Sending you puppy breath and sweet kisses from Okra and Fletcher!
