Credit for this shot belongs to Shannon Miller,
an outstanding writer, photographer, musher,
and author of the The Daily Dog blog.
One of her sweetheart dogs, Gwennie,
gave birth to 8 puppies just over 2 weeks ago.
Shannon, who has a master's degree in English,
has named each of the pups after a favorite writer.
The little lad above is Kerouac.
Can you hear him?
He's already producing contented little howls.
Oy, I am so in love.
