Black Velvet..

This is our litle Velvet Rose. She is 2 weeks old today. I took the first 3 photos last night. The last photo was when she was 1 day old!

We had to bring her in the house and bottle feed her from the time she was 2 days old.

The other puppies are 3 times bigger than her so she couldn't nurse. And the Momma didn't seem that interested in her.

I will post pictures of the other puppies in the next couple of days. They are adorable too..

But I really think Velvet is the prettiest. She has soothed our hearts so much. I have helped Elizabeth feed her in the middle of the night. Warmed bottles and kept her clean and fresh.

I can tell she is going to be a great dog.

It looks like she is smiling here doesn't it? It's because she is spoiled rotten..

I love her color! She looks like a little bear to me. A black velvety bear..

This is her at 1 day old..We really didn't think she was going to make it because she was so fragile. But she is robust now and thriving. We hold her alot. She is just precious...
John would have loved her. He was so much like me, we both loved dogs.
Hope you all have a good weekend.

what a cutie....she looks like she's got purple highlights, a puppy with style already, and you cant spoil something that you love..growing up I was an only child and all my friends and family would tell me "Annette, your spoiled" "I'm not spoiled just loved" is what I would tell them back, and still do =)
she's just adorable and I love her name.

My friend Carol at Katherine's Dream (check my blogrole) raised her little Guy from about the same age and what a pistol he has turned out to be! Velvet is a beauty!

Oh my heart just melted. What a sweetie! I wish I lived near by so I could come visit the puppies.


Sally said...

Precious!! Almost makes me want a puppy - I said ALMOST. hahaha

Laurie said...

She is so cute Nita. What a wonderful "project" for you and Elizabeth to pour your hearts into right now. This baby needs you both!! I am assuming that since she has a name and getting all the love from you two, that she has a permanent home with you:) You are her mommies now. Hope your weekend is a peaceful and good one. I love you and continue praying for you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

Ooooh. I was looking at the Humane Society's website last night, looking at dogs for adoption. I so want a doggie myself!

Sweet! I'm glad you have this puppy love. xoxo
