Mother’s Love and Father’s Protection
In a little apartment nestled in the heart of Brooklyn, New York, house dogs Timberland and Marley took the steps to becoming parents.
Timberland is an Italian Greyhound. He is wildly energetic, outspoken, loving (when he wants to be…), and dominant. Tim is by far one of the BEST cuddle-buddies EVER!
Marley is an American Cocker Spaniel. She loves to eat, is playful, sweet, and incredibly loyal. Think of her as a “semi” gentle teddy bear!!
While everyone around was unsure of conception, little babies grew and were nurtured. It wasn’t until roughly seven weeks could anyone could tell. As the weeks seemingly crept by, preparations were made for the new bundles of life!!
Marley’s water broke and she went into active labor early one Thursday morning. For the rest of the day and through the night she panted heavily. In the dark of the following morning on October 18, 2013 Marley gave birth to a litter of 5 puppies!!!

Sleeping Pups – Newborn
As time continued further, I was able to learn from each new life. Everyone began to take on their own definitions.
Cleopatra – independent, adventurous, persistent, quick-thinker, confident
Soba Noodle – playful, confident, fun loving, loyal, affectionate
TJ (Timberland Jr.) – dominant, independent, persistent, playful, aggressive
Tomas – “Mr. Love”, sweet, caring, loyal, calm
Bodhi – dominant, charming, relaxed, playful
All of the puppies are sociable, warm-hearted, and outgoing. It speaks to the amount of love and energy that have been placed, given, and received from these animals.
