We know you've been patiently waiting to see what Lillie's puppies are looking like now. You won't recognize them. They look like tiny dogs! We asked the dogs' foster mom what was most Frenchie about them, and she said one of the puppies has a nice, broad chest like her mom's, but she thinks that when they grow up they will be about half the size of labs. From Left to Right, we have Tobi and Cookie, the girls, and Jeffrey, a boy. These dogs are being adopted with the assistance of a no-kill shelter, which is giving them space on its website and underwriting the cost of the puppies' spay and neuters, as well as their innoculations. They are being housed at our volunteer's home, however, and they will stay there until they are adopted. If you would like to be considered for one of the puppies, you can email their foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. There are more pics of the puppies here.

That's why "A lid for every pot" is the favorite adage of
