Oh My GOSH… PUPPIES!
This might be one of the best puppy videos I’ve seen in a while. Smiling ear-to-ear after watching this. I wish there was a place that you could just go, pet and play with the puppies, and when you get your fill of puppy love–you can go. The most important part of this plan is, there is always someone next in line waiting to play with the puppies. Oh My GOSH… PUPPIES. I want to give them all belly rubs.
Here is a link to a dog breed selector.

The people at Wikipedia have this to say about pups.
Born after an average of 63 days of gestation, puppies emerge in an amnion that is bitten off and eaten by the mother dog. Pups begin to nurse almost immediately. If the litter exceeds six pups, particularly if one or more are obvious runts, human intervention in hand-feeding the stronger pups is necessary to ensure that the runts get proper nourishment and attention from the mother. As they reach one month of age, pups are gradually weaned and begin to eat solid food. The mother may regurgitate partially digested food for the pups or might let them eat some of her solid food. The mother dog usually refuses to nurse at this stage, though she might let them occasionally nurse for comfort.
At first, pups spend the large majority of their time sleeping and the rest feeding. They instinctively pile together into a heap, and become distressed if separated from physical contact with their littermates, by even a short distance.
Pups are born with a fully functional sense of smell but can’t open their eyes. During their first two weeks, a puppy’s senses all develop rapidly. During this stage the nose is the primary sense organ used by pups to find their mother’s teats, and to locate their littermates, if they become separated by a short distance. Puppies open their eyes about nine to eleven days following birth. At first, their retinas are poorly developed and their vision is poor. Pups are not able to see as well as adult dogs. In addition, puppies’ ears remain sealed until about thirteen to seventeen days after birth, after which they respond more actively to sounds. Between two and four weeks old, pups usually begin to growl, bite, wag their tails, and bark.
Pups develop very quickly during their first three months, particularly after their eyes and ears open and they are no longer completely dependent on their mother. Their coordination and strength improve, they spar with their littermates, and begin to explore the world outside the nest. They play wrestling, chase, dominance, and tug-of-war games.
I might need a puppy.
Thanks for reading all of this.
