Medical science doesn't see with the same clarity as Superman's
x-ray vision evidently. According to the x-ray before she gave
birth, Pippin was carrying five puppies but she produced eight
as June was coming to an end. Five girls and three boys. Good
sized puppies, especially considering Pippin isn't one of my
larger girls, but then their dad, Hawthorne, is a burly boy. All
are gaining more than the usual weight per day. They should be
ready to depart for their new homes about August 20, 2018.

You might well ask: Where do they get these names? From a
potato, in Pippin’s case. In tribute to a bumper crop of potatoes
in my garden the summer she was born, Pippin and her
littermates got their registered names from the many delightful
names that have been given to potatoes. The Pink Fir Apple is
my favourite variety of potato and so the name was bestowed
on my favourite pup in the litter. That proved too big a handle to
call out the back door so Pippin acquired the nickname of an
apple tree, the Cox Orange Pippin, since her legs mirror its
orange-red colour.
