OMG the puppies. They are so cute. 6 weeks old and so much puppy breath! My favourite part of the afternoon was sitting on the ground with 4 puppies in my lap and eating my camera strap (it survived) while I tried to take pictures of the other puppies across the pen.

I was a bit nervous going into this because puppies are FAST and unpredictable and I was so afraid I'd have a tough time getting photos of them. 4 of the puppies had been playing NONSTOP before I got there so they were pretty tired. The other two slept before I got there and so were more active. But they all were running around for a bit before falling asleep. for those who didn't see them on FB!





This was my favourite! The little girl she's calling "Purple" right now (they're all named after their original collar colors).




Tunnel fight!





Great ad for that Zawies frisbee, eh?







Here's my favourite again!











Not quite getting the tire.

Future agility star!



And now for some stacked photos. Now I know NOTHING about what is proper so I took several photos of each dog. These were the ones I thought looked the best of each one.







Back playing for a moment.

The whole litter in one big pile.

I hope Stephanie likes them (there are tons more in Flickr; I'll give her a CD with them all on it on Tuesday). I'm really happy with them.

I'm sort of annoyed though that some animal rescue site shared them like they were in need of rescue. Ugh.

I SAW THAT. I was like ".... Wha?"

Yeah seriously. I have asked for them to be removed but no one has responded. I'm wicked irritated about that. I was hoping they'd remove it before Stephanie saw it. The weird thing is it's not even a page I've "liked" so WTF?

(Your album is public, in case you didn't know. But I don't know why that animal rescue site happened to see it.)

I know it's public. I wanted Stephanie to be able to share it on the Stone Hill page and with her friends. So I made it public. But I still can't figure out how they found it so quickly and immediately shared it. Nowhere did it say "These puppies need help!" They're freaking bred from championship Dalmatians...conformation, obedience, rally. Mom just got her MACH right before she was put "on leave" to be bred.

You'd better send nice flowers to my funeral, because you've just killed me with cute.

I can almost smell the puppy breath from here! And I'm kind of in love with "Blue" - so spotty!!! <#

OMG the puppy breath was AMAZING. I was taking one picture and suddenly I was like "omg puppy breath" and one was trying to eat my chin. lol

I was lucky, Inde had puppy breath for almost 2 months after he got his adult teeth! I swear, I go to pet shops and ask to ply with the puppies just to get my "fix" os puppy kisses. I envy you for having a whole gaggle of them to play with!

Ohhhh, tunnel puppies!

I've always kind of coveted Dalmations. I've never been around any up close, so I have no idea if they'd actually work for me or not, but ohhhh, on paper I love them so! Dalmations and Dobermans. Apparently my dream-dogs are all D breeds.

I'm not a huge Dalmatian fan. I like them well enough but their personalities don't really gel with me (and I'm really very much a long-haired dog kind of my fluffy dogs!). These puppies though almost make me a convert.

Not helping with my puppy fever :/

SO not helping with mine either. I was all like "Um so how much do you charge and can I have the one you called Purple please?" As if I'm in any place to have a puppy! lol

My coworker and friend runs a rescue. She usually has a litter or a couple of puppies at her house. Its not helping. I try so hard to resist because I can't get a puppy now. I don't have the time, patience, or money. But then I try to figure out how it could work.... I've been able to resist for now because I really want a Malinois pup but I bet at some point I cave and fall in love with one of her pups lol

That's what you need :) A little Dal puppy :D :D :D

Awesome pictures, must be a big change from photographing a black dog :)

LOVED taking pictures of them. No way on getting a Dalmatian! They're just so not my breed. lol

And it was a HUGE change from photographing a black dog. I blew out the highlights on the first few pictures because I was thinking like I usually do with a black dog. I had to change some settings that I don't usually change! My camera is SO set up for photos of Dahlia!

I love dalmatians, my best friend had a dalmatian named Pongo [I know right], that dog was his sidekick.

Oh my god, the liver one with one blue eye is adorable. I am seriously wanting a Dal now. Damnit.

They are ADORABLE! My daughters loved looking at the photos with me, and trying to count all the puppies in the basket at the end. I love the picture of the single dog on the red...cot-thing. It looks like her nose is heart-shaped because of the spot on it.

I am wondering about their temperament. I know dalmatians have/had a reputation for being snappy, semi-agressive and somewhat difficult to train. But all that was after the 101 Dalmations dalmation inbreeding/overbreeding stuff. Is that still true in general? How about these dogs? (I'm *not* considering getting a dog at all, but I am quite interested to know how their temperaments are, since I've never even met a dalmatian at all).

These puppies are cuuuute but they just make me think of the batshit crazy Dals I've known!

Some of her dogs are a bit batshit crazy (because Dals, ya know?). One has some major fear issues. But the other one I know really well is a huge goofball. She's not a bad agility dog, but she doesn't always concentrate and ends up doing weird things like jumping up on the tunnel.

These photos are gorgeous! They made me smile for certain. I think Blue is my favorite. Am I imagining strong personalities? It's almost like I can see each individual photo and assign a trait: shy, brave etc.
