Last weekend we hosted another puppy sleepover. This time it was a different member of Sophie's progeny. His name is Oreo.
He is the big bruiser that hubby is holding on the right. The mother of all these rascals is Sophie. Hubby has her on the left. Daughter #2 is holding her dog Bmer on the left and our Emma on the right. These dogs come from the three litters that Sophie had. Do you notice how small mummy Sophie is?
