Just a Gaggle of Puppies…

The Refuge recently had a litter of 10 Staffy pups available for adoption. They’ve all found good homes now, but I just wanted to share their photos with you all, so you can see just how cute they are in their colourful winter jackets.

These pups were having a mid-morning snooze in the puppy yard when I saw them. There were 10 in the litter, but the runt had decided to go sleep on its own somewhere quieter, while the rest gathered between a tree, a unibond fence and a brick wall, piled into a big heap and went to sleep.

When I saw them, I just had to get some photos of them quick.

They remind me so much of my own Shelagh, who I got at the same age, and who came from a litter of 8 pups that looked very similar to this litter. These pups are going to be gorgeous dogs when they grow up, and they’ll have the most beautiful temperaments too. I can tell by just how relaxed they all are now.

I’ve stopped volunteering at the Refuge now, for reasons I’ve hinted at in a previous post on photography copyright. But rest assured there will still be photos of dogs and other animals from me, I will find them somewhere, somehow. A good photographer always needs to keep practising her art.

Check out tomorrow’s post for some more photos of the puppies, taken a few days later, and just before they were made available for adoption.
