So cute! And mom looks beautiful!

I can't remember if you answered when Always asked in the PE thread, but what do the different collars symbolize?

I especially like puppy #5. =]

Thanks! Faidhe is a wonderful girl.

Oops, I missed that question in the PE thread, I'll have to go back and look.

Since collies are a breed that has a fairly set color pattern, sometimes it can be difficult to tell pups apart initially, but it's important to know who is who for record keeping, especially in a larger litter like this (they are all weighed 3x daily to make sure they are gaining well, if anyone needed supplementation, or for later on, worming, vaccs, and microchipping etc). Usually by a few days old I have picked up on differences to tell them all apart. However this litter was diverse enough the only to I really might risk getting mixed up are Linsey (#2) and Brenna (#4)...which is why I have already removed the collars on several of the rest of them.

And, so far EVERYONE wants Brenna (#5) lol!

Can I have puppy #2? Pretty, Pretty please? =P

But we do need a new farm dog. =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
