What’s the best thing about being a puppy-mama at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue?

You may recall, I spent several weeks this summer as one of the designated puppy moms to 12 adorable Golden puppies – the Giants Litter.

Taking over for their exhausted and too-skinny real mom, Molly –

my daily duties including feeding, bathing, socialization, and endless clean up! And guess what? Five months later, they are still getting themselves filthy!

Last weekend, four of them met for a mini-reunion –

and this weekend, Molly and her son Javier (who were adopted together) joined little girl Summer for puppy school.

Still a puppy herself, Molly alternates between full-on play

and mothering her pups.

The puppies, meanwhile, are quickly catching up to her in both height and weight which has thankfully rebounded from her nursing days.

They are adorable in a whole new and better way.

  1. You are so committed to these dogs. You set a wonderful example for us all. I’m always happy when dogs are adopted in pairs. I had a pair of cats from the same litter, and it was a whole new experience raising them together. They were life-long friends.
