New Additions to the Chasing Steel Family!

Many of you might recall seeing a couple of photos ofLappy, left, and Beanie our two dogs in the portfolio section of  The larger white dog is named “Lappy” and the brown Yorkie is “Beanie.”

Well during the holiday season Beanie went into season and was visited by a neighborhood dog that we have never seen before.  Heck, we didn’t even know what kind of dog it was.  I described the visitor to a very dog-knowledgeable friend and he declared it was a Welsh Corgi.  He was right.

Before we knew of his presence, he got through the railings in the gate, and “met up” with Beanie.  We were concerned about this for health reasons but not that she might become pregnant because we acquired her from a Yorkie breeder who thought she wasn’t fertile.

Well, I think you all know where this is headed, some 61 days later I got a call from my wife while I was at work stating that “Beanie just had two puppies!”  No kidding?  We thought she was acting strange but she wasn’t showing and the breeder said she couldn’t become pregnant.  WRONG!

So on February 3, 2010, two new members joined our family.  They are so small and adorable!  We appropriately named them “Chase” n’ “Steel.”  Here they are only two days old:

Beanie is 75% Yorkie and 25% Maltese and the “visitor” is, probably, a purebred Corgi, so what the puppies will eventually look like is anyone’s guess.  All I know is that they are a very welcome suprise and, when the time is right, will be living up to their namesakes right beside me!

The puppies are so small! Maybe because Yorkies and Corgis are small naturally. I wonder how their coat will be. Will they look like the Corgis' which are short or the Yorkies' which are kinda long/furry. Now, I think I'll do the math. Chase and Steel are 50% Corgi, 37.5% Yorkie and 12.5% Maltese. :)

I have asked Deb to get some recent photos together of the puppies so everyone can see the transformation. They are two different looking dogs now. We love them to death!
