Announcing...

Here they are! These glamour shots were taken at 4 days old. Naming them has been challenging, but fun. There is a theme, somewhat. There are also a few unique names, but there are quite a few unique puppies. So, what the heck?!
Their weights are from 4 days old as well.

The BOYS:


Spark (12 ounces); Charcoal or "Coal" (14 ounces)


Nomex (12.5 ounces); Hotshot (13 ounces)


Torch (13 ounces); Tinderbox or "Tinder" (13.5 ounces)


Commando (12.5 ounces)

The GIRLS:


Amber (14.5 ounces); Violet (1 lb 2 ounces)


Chena (15 ounces); Daisy (1 lb 1 ounce)

Good job on the names! Quite appropriate this year. Are girl puppies usually heavier than the boys?

Sooooooo gorgeous!!! Soooo cute!!!

Fiery names, or at least fire department ones. Related to their summer gestation experiences?

Thanks so much for sharing great mini-red team member pics!!!

Is there a reason why the girls weigh more?

Aliy what great names and how appropriate! Each puppy is just darling. It will be exciting to see them grow. That for posting pictures of your future Stars.

Thanks again - I keep coming back to these little faces and wondering...so which kids will inherit Big 'O' blues??? And if Violet, perhaps, may end up looking like Grandma ChaCha...

OMG.....adorable! Love the names....You all did great! Im wondering too who will have the big blue eyes! Keep the pictures coming!

I think, I would change the name of "Commando" to raccoon or bandit.
He is wearing a black mask.

They are so adorable and little! Yes, I want to smooch them all as well! Great names!
They range quite a bit in weight! Both sets of parents (human and canine) must be very proud of the little ones!
God bless you all, little guys and girls! May you have the best in life!...I'm sure you will :)

Hi Aliy and gang! I still can't believe Miss Olivia had eleven puppies... Wow...She almost had a whole team by herself. Love the names but sorry to hear about all of the summer events happening around you. Glad everyone is ok. Hugs and kisses to Olivia and the babies. Makes me want to come up to play. Can't wait to see all in Alaska.
p.s. Blossom says "awesome job Olivia. A-a-a-a-ooooh"

I had to look up Nomex - whoaaa! Still trying to see how Daisy and Violet fit in, the big girls.

According to Wikipedia, puppies open their eyes 9-11 days after birth - so we should know soon how many babies have blue eyes soon!!!

In the same article, it is said the weakest and smallest pups in a big litter (more than 6)get to be with Mommy for meals and the bigger babies get bottle fed.

So maybe Daisy and Violet are weighing more because they get first dibs of Mommy Olivia?
