Fiona and Zappa at 4 months old
So sweet and precious my two little ones. All of the puppies had found homes and now it was their turn. The instant Zappa was born, we knew we were keeping him. I knew the first one born would be "my" Alex. Zappa has his eyes, even though Zappa was only related to Alex by spirit.
Fiona was the last born and the runt of the litter. After the first three days of watching her give everything she had to keep up with her siblings, I found myself drawn to her and there was no giving her up after that.
We already had their names picked out long before they were born. Zappa for the musician/artist Frank Zappa and Fiona for the musician/artist Fiona Apple. They have both lived up to their names and then some. :)
What a wonderful time that was. It was our first time having two puppies at the same time. For some reason it seemed so easy compared to having the litter. BOL
I wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world. It was just as sweet and precious as this picture.
