Dalmatian puppies!

OMG the puppies. They are so cute. 6 weeks old and so much puppy breath! My favourite part of the afternoon was sitting on the ground with 4 puppies in my lap and eating my camera strap (it survived) while I tried to take pictures of the other puppies across the pen.

I was a bit nervous going into this because puppies are FAST and unpredictable and I was so afraid I'd have a tough time getting photos of them. 4 of the puppies had been playing NONSTOP before I got there so they were pretty tired. The other two slept before I got there and so were more active. But they all were running around for a bit before falling asleep.

So...pictures for those who didn't see them on FB!

This was my favourite! The little girl she's calling "Purple" right now (they're all named after their original collar colors).

And now for some stacked photos. Now I know NOTHING about what is proper so I took several photos of each dog. These were the ones I thought looked the best of each one.

I hope Stephanie likes them (there are tons more in Flickr; I'll give her a CD with them all on it on Tuesday). I'm really happy with them.

I'm sort of annoyed though that some animal rescue site shared them like they were in need of rescue. Ugh.

Yeah seriously. I have asked for them to be removed but no one has responded. I'm wicked irritated about that. I was hoping they'd remove it before Stephanie saw it. The weird thing is it's not even a page I've "liked" so WTF?

You'd better send nice flowers to my funeral, because you've just killed me with cute.

Ohhhh, tunnel puppies!

I've always kind of coveted Dalmations. I've never been around any up close, so I have no idea if they'd actually work for me or not, but ohhhh, on paper I love them so! Dalmations and Dobermans. Apparently my dream-dogs are all D breeds.

I'm not a huge Dalmatian fan. I like them well enough but their personalities don't really gel with me (and I'm really very much a long-haired dog kind of gal...love my fluffy dogs!). These puppies though almost make me a convert.

Awesome pictures, must be a big change from photographing a black dog :)

LOVED taking pictures of them. No way on getting a Dalmatian! They're just so not my breed. lol

And it was a HUGE change from photographing a black dog. I blew out the highlights on the first few pictures because I was thinking like I usually do with a black dog. I had to change some settings that I don't usually change! My camera is SO set up for photos of Dahlia!

I love dalmatians, my best friend had a dalmatian named Pongo [I know right], that dog was his sidekick.

They are ADORABLE! My daughters loved looking at the photos with me, and trying to count all the puppies in the basket at the end. I love the picture of the single dog on the red...cot-thing. It looks like her nose is heart-shaped because of the spot on it.

I am wondering about their temperament. I know dalmatians have/had a reputation for being snappy, semi-agressive and somewhat difficult to train. But all that was after the 101 Dalmations dalmation inbreeding/overbreeding stuff. Is that still true in general? How about these dogs? (I'm *not* considering getting a dog at all, but I am quite interested to know how their temperaments are, since I've never even met a dalmatian at all).

Some of her dogs are a bit batshit crazy (because Dals, ya know?). One has some major fear issues. But the other one I know really well is a huge goofball. She's not a bad agility dog, but she doesn't always concentrate and ends up doing weird things like jumping up on the tunnel.
