Fur Ball Invasion

A while ago, the Machinist and Son were visiting a customer who is also a good friend of ours.  This particular friend is a Showman or a "Showie" as they are called in Australia. He and his crew are always on the road and travel in convoy, housed in extremely large trailers, -  fitted with all the mod-cons, replicating the comforts of home.  An extremely important home-away-from-home pleasure for this family of Showies are their pets - a canine crew - who must be the most well-travelled dogs in the land. They are simply adored!

Earlier this year, a litter of puppies were born en-route, but later left at the home-base for the caretakers to - well - take care of and raise with - ahem - some stability and obedience training.  The Machinist and Son happened to visit the homestead at the time of said training and immediately fell in love and eloped with not one, but two of the remaining litter. They were told that the puppies were from pedigree stock.  Not necessarily the same breed, but pedigree nonetheless. Here they are - the Pug x Shih Tzu puppies.

This is Lilly:


And this is Pepi:

Our old girl, Polly, despises the two new girls.  As this photos will show:

"I don't care and I'm not looking..."
