Barks and Recreation: Puppy Update

In October I rescued a pregnant and homeless beagle that I found while walking my two dogs around our farm. On November 9th she delivered eight healthy and absolutely adorable puppies. The puppies are now a month old, so I want to give everyone an update. Below you will find updated photos and information for each puppy. If you want to see photos of the puppies at two-weeks-old and read their newborn information, please visit my previous post: Meet The Puppies.

Each puppy has been assigned a temporary “newborn name”; I named them after characters from Parks and Recreation, the TV show. Hopefully I will be able to find suitable and happy homes for them when the time comes.
