The little darlings have organized into a wild pack of thugs. They move en masse like a swarm of bees, devouring everything in their paths and taking no prisoners 😉 Trying to keep them clean is a full time job.
They are eating very well now, rather voraciously actually. And they are thoroughly enjoying warm days in the garden. Tomorrow they will receive their third worming and have their nails clipped again (I can hardly wait).
We are working on stacking. Some are more cooperative than others. Einas (#9) is affectionately being nicknamed “Sleepy” because of his napping proclivities. In fact, in these photos, he laid down every time I took my hands off of him. (You can tell in his photo that he is sinking again, but we couldn’t force the baby to stand.) Elamira (#1) possibly has a binge disorder. That girl loves food! Essam (#6) and Eshe (#3) are the two wildest and most outgoing Sloughi puppies I have had, followed closely by Eliana (#2), Ehsan (#5) and Everest (#8). Elham (#4) and Emmelia (#10) are very bonded to one another, and although Emmelia is shyer and more demure than her sister, she is an incredibly sweet little girl. Elham, by the way, won the prize today for “Most Likely to Be a Show Dog.” Offer her some chicken and she will stack right up. Einas and El-Djem (#7) are the most reserved of the boys, and I cannot say that I blame them. Their littermates can be downright dangerous!
They will be leaving us soon to begin their adventures in their new, forever homes. We will surely miss them (but a little peace and quiet won’t be bad either).
