Moar Puppy Pics

The pups have opened their eyes and started to wobble around like girls in high heels for the first time.
They also spend most of the day sleeping. The biggest weighs 2 and a half pounds now.  I'm dreading the dog food bill in a couple of months!

Knives in progress

A good  customer has ordered some custom bushcraft knives.  He happened to be in the shop when we were practicing some heat treating and was impressed with the edge retention on the practice blades.   We were short on kindling and 10 or 15 oak logs were batoned/split  into thumb sized pieces with the newly sharpened blades and then I shaved the hair on my arm.

Recycling at it's best.  Old car springs turned into useful sharp shiny things.

Momma Dogs are the best pillows

Well the pups are 11 days old now.  They survived -20 weather and traveling to houses with heat after my furnace went kaput. This last week and a half has been a script from a bad sit com.  I'd like to give a huge thank you to my friends new and old that helped get me and the dogs through the series of trials and tribulations.

and there's more.....puppies

I will post more on the puppies after some rest.  I crashed for a few hours after I thought mamma dog was done whelping and when I awoke to stoke the fire there was more.
