I created the Marvels Puppies! page to showcase photos of current and previous litters. I do so love these little angels and taking pictures of them as they grow is such a joy. Knowing that their time with me is short, I try to capture the best of what will become happy memories. All photos are dated with the most recent posted at the top, going back in time as one scrolls down the page.
