Cutest Puppies Ever

I'm quite sure that my two current foster puppies - Wags and Wrigley - are the cutest puppies ever.  Forget all the adorable puppies you see on calendars or commercials.  Never mind that all puppies are cute.  Ignore when I posted before that this was the cutest puppy ever.  That was before I met Wags and Wrigley.

Wrigley does not like to get his picture taken. Or rather, he doesn't mind getting his picture taken as long as he doesn't have to leave my side. But in almost every picture of Wrigley, you will see either my foot or my leg or some other part of my body that he is touching.  This can make taking his picture something like a game of Twister.

Wrigley curled up next to my leg.

It's not his fault he loves me so much. It's not his fault he feels most at ease when he's right next to me. It's not his fault he's a little cuddlebug who is happiest getting a belly rub. But it does make it challenging to get a good picture of one of the cutest puppies ever.

And then there's Wags. He's a bit more independent. He'll happily lay in his dog bed and look adorable while I take his picture.

At least until he's distracted by a movement or a noise or just the sight of a toy that he could be playing with. This one has a short attention span. But he's a puppy, so it's allowed.

Wags went to the vet today to get neutered and vaccinated and all that good stuff. The vet said his tail is deformed, but doesn't need any medical treatment. So he's an extra special puppy because not only is he a very unique mix of breeds (i.e. a mutt), he's also got a one-of-a-kind tail! Wags will be ready for adoption on Saturday, and will get to go to the adoption event with Venture and Zoe and all the other adoptable dogs! Wrigley has to be stuck with me for a few more weeks though because he's too cute to give up still undergoing treatment for the missing hair on his face. Sigh - the sacrifices I make - another few weeks of puppy cuteness and puppy snuggles and puppy kisses. All part of the burden of being a foster parent.

Poooooor Dog Foster Mom. I feel ever so sorry for you. I can tell how rough it would be to have to put up with all that puppy cuteness and snuggliness for hours and hours on end. I just don't know HOW you do it!

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

Yeah, they are super cute aren't they! And oh, Wags is going for the snip and then the adoption event - he is getting snapped up right away I am sure. But Wrigley is just so cute that he will make up for it we are sure!

Hi Y'all,

Now I know why my Human Papa won't let my Momma foster...she'd never give a dog up, much less a puppy!

Y'all come by now,

And puppy breath! Nothing like a little puppy breath!

Soooooooooooooo cute!
I did email you, did you get it? I may have put your email address in wrong. LOL

Poor you, dealing with all that sweet puppy breath, too. Maybe Wrigley has found his forever home?

Pattie said...

Oooohhhhh.....puppy breath is the greatest smell ever! It's a good thing I'm so far away, I would take them both! Then I would be divorced. I have three dog rescues, 5 cat rescues, 2 cockatoo rescues, 13 chickens, 3 finches and 2 diamond doves. And Charlotte the goat, who came from a horrendous farm. I just became one of your followers and truly admire you for your work. 8>)

A few weeks ago I started fostering my first dog - a 4 year old English lab/redtick coonhound mix (she's a sweetheart!). So glad that I am not able to foster puppies because of my schedule - I think I would end up keeping them all! I am a sucker for puppies - and these are too too cute!

They are adorable! I can't wait to foster dogs.
