During this Covid-19 isolation time, look at these little “Gems” that are keeping us entertained!
On April 3rd Trixie had 2 lovely babies, one Male and one Female. Mama and pups are doing well. This was a repeat breeding. See the other litter of Logan and Trixie pups under Border Terrier Puppies June 23, 2018.
Logan lives in Iowa with his family.
Although these 2 babies have wonderful families waiting, you can still follow my “What’s New” Blog for weekly photos and watch them grow.

“Co-parenting”. We just finished moving the 2 babies to their new and bigger box. I got busy and when I checked back, Mimi had hopped in and was gently trying to clean them. Trixie was outside for a break. No alarm…our dogs always share mothering duties.
