The Puppies

My son and daughter-in-law's dog gave birth to eleven puppies on the day before Easter. Eleven! I'm not a dog expert, but that seems like an awfully big litter, doesn't it?

Here is a picture of the puppies when they were 5 days old.

Today I've written a haiku to celebrate their arrival:

The Puppies
Eleven puppies
Squirming, sleeping, whimpering...
Cuteness overload!

  1. This is definitely cuteness overload! I just want to cuddle with them. Your poem summed up puppies perfectly.

  2. wow ya thats a ton! I think a puppy litter should be 8 max (but not really sure - even that sounds like a lot!) Enjoyed your haiku!


  3. You had me at puppies and you satisfied my hope for a photo. Your haiku, is excellent, too. I did read it, and I think it captures the essence of puppyness!

  4. Total cuteness overload. Oh my goodness - puppies! Love your haiku!

  5. Oh my gosh! Like Adrienne, you had me at "The Puppies". What a photo! ELEVEN?! Poor mama. Ha.
