Puppies of the Resistance!

Last August, hubby brought home a white Siberian Husky who needed a home. Her name is Bellah and she has beautiful ice blue eyes. Our dog Oreo (a Dalmation/Lab mix) immediately fell in love with her and finally learned some doggy manners in an effort to impress Bellah. Oreo’s efforts eventually paid off as winter’s cold set in and Bellah decided that starting a family might be more interesting than eating Oreo’s face, although she still likes to chew on him and he still lets her.

Two weeks ago Sunday, on Leap Day, Bellah brought three new little puppies into our world. I had learned about the things I might have to do to help her delivery, but Bellah was a champ & took care of it all – including the cleanup. She left no mess and six hours after she started, we had soft and clean fuzzy little puppies to love. She was very protective at first, but she soon let us cuddle the pups so she could get a break once in a while and now she lets Oreo kiss his babies occasionally without getting bitten. She has finally let me take some pictures to share with you all too. Enjoy!







The dogs are benefiting from my refusal to discard the baby equipment that I had for my kids. That’s the old crib mattress the happy parents are relaxing on and that’s the old baby cage that kept the Lil’ Resisters out of trouble before they were big enough to figure out how to escape.

We’ve had many talks here about what to name the puppies, with the exception of the first born who we’ve always called Big Moose (Moosey) cuz he is so very large compared to the other two. Hubby insists that the brown one is Boscoe; I liked Brownie, but I got to name the black ones (Boscoe was originally named NotBlack by me) so he wins (pick yer battles), the littlest one is the third born who we used to call Threezey who now is called Breezy and he’s the runt grunt of the litter. None look like their momma but all have Husky type markings on their sweet little faces and they all have white tipped tails like their daddy. Their eyes opened this weekend and they look like they might be blue like their mom, but it is too early to know for sure.

We were going to give the puppies away to close friends, but now that they are here I don’t think any of us can bear to do that because we love them so much. The cats seem to like them too, so far, although Bellah warns them off if they get too close. Our dogs & cats have always been good friends.

So that’s the latest happy news from The Resister House, I look forward to sharing more with you all as they continue to grow.

    1. Thanks! So does this make me the canine equivalent of a crazy cat lady? If we keep them that puts us at five dogs & six cats, and one of our cats may be pregnant.

  1. WordPress is at it again. I left a comment here this morning and WP ate it. I hate WP.

    I’m in love with the little brown one.

    1. I might install disqus again, or maybe try intense debate which lets bloggers autolink posts on their sites with the commentluv thingy, or maybe try something else. I’m just leery of plugins now since I still don’t know what killed my blog & cost me four years worth of work when I lost my database. I think wordpress put your first comment under the url for one of the pictures instead of the actual blog post. I didn’t even know that comments could be posted to individual pics. Blogger was easier to work with & had better options for designing blog format, IMHO, but they don’t let you go self hosted and I was always afraid I’d get shut down for being offensive to the perpetually offended so I went with my own server. I miss Blogger’s live updating blogroll feature, I never could find one for WP that didn’t seriously slow down my site’s loading time.
      The brown one is named Boscoe (or whatever the correct spelling is for the chocolate syrup), and he is very sweet. He likes to give kissies to Big Moose and he likes to get cuddles from me & Lil Zilla when momma Bellah is busy with the other pups or wants a break.

  2. Hey Zilla!

    Cool pups! I came by through Adrienne’s Corner. I’ll try to put a link on several of my blogs…Wordpress, Blogger and TypePad. Keep fighting the moonbats with truth!

  3. Zilla,

    One more thing: I had problems with Intense Debate on one of my blogs. I dropped it from my TypePad blog myfoxmystere’s big bold mouth after it kept having problems installing.

  4. Zilla,
    I got the notifications that you stopped by Cleveland Foxers and Mystere’s Moonbat Spanker. I just posted on Rattrapper’s MyFox Trappings, and will be posting on Mystere’s Moonbat Slayer Club as well. My Bloggeroid app will allow me to post the identical blogger post onto Mystere’s Moonbat Slayer Club. I posted a warning to the liberal blog enemy trolls of mine that you moderate the comments on your site, so hopefully, Lester Liberalmann and Ema Nymton ~@:o? won’t waste their time trying to post their hate. This is one post I’ll keep coming back to. I’ll send you a pm on Twitter about something else.
