LIVE PUPPY CAM: Holly's Half Dozen
Warrior Canine Connection ^ | June 24, 2012 | Holly, Super Mom Dog

Posted on 07/28/2012 9:14:13 PM PDT by Auntie Mame

Meet Holly’s Half Dozen. These six Golden Retriever pups were born on June 24th and have already begun very important work — helping to heal the invisible wounds of our Nation’s Combat Veterans. Recovering Service Members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, MD are engaged in the critical task of socializing the pups through puppy petting.

The litter of five girls and one boy will spend the next two years lifting the spirits of Wounded Warriors and giving them a therapeutic and purposeful mission. By volunteering to train the pups through the Warrior Canine Connection program, these Warriors will both address their symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress and prepare the pups for future lives as service dogs for their disabled comrades.

Tune into the Warrior Canine Connection whelping box over the next 8-10 weeks to feel the healing power of the human-puppy bond brought virtually to you by Dog Bless You.

I'm a bit embarrassed that I have not shared this incredible puppy cam here on Free Republic. I've been enjoying it for several weeks and have learned quite a bit about dog behavior from my intermittent viewing.

It is also quite relaxing to view when you are stressed. Enjoy!

When I was a teen, our Dobie had 13 pups.
We had to feed them as she couldn’t do it all.
We stuck all 13 in Christmas stockings for a picture LOL

They were so funny.
Little wiggly worms LOL

It’s really strange because the link is correct in the original post. If you hover your cursor over it shows up correctly, but click on it and it redirects to something else. I have no idea why.

Sorry ‘bout that. Here’s the proper link:
http://explore.org/#!/live-cams/player/service-puppy-cam

When I first started watching the live cam the puppies nursed and slept. Some would consider it boring but I liked it a lot. A week later they nursed, moved around a little bit and slept. Now they are eating food, nursing a little bit, play-fighting and sleeping. Lately they’ve been taking them outside during the day and they have people come in to pet an play with them. Holly is a great mom. This is her third litter.

Cool! They are moving around a bit. Looks like one is chewing on the other one's ear.

BTW I count at least 5 bears fishing on the Brooks Falls cam! This is a great cam link! THANKS!

Thanks! My daughter and I had a great time watching the pups playing and nursing. Very much some stress relief and good for some family time. They’re adorable!

I’ve been watching for a couple weeks now and admit I will miss the little girls (and one guy) when they move on. For those on Facebook, they do have a Facebook page at Warrior Canine Connection. What a wonderful cause!

Puppies sleep a lot although the one furthest from the camera might be dead. It hasn’t moved at all in five minutes.

No, I take that back. It moved far enough to fall back asleep again on the blanket. Now I’m having a hard time staying awake.

I too have been following this puppycam the past several weeks, after receiving an email from a friend with the link. In fact, a short while ago, I was thinking of checking in on the pups...then I saw your post. Awesome! Arent’t they adorable! I’ve so enjoyed watching them. How wonderful for this group to provide the cam. So glad they did!

Thanks for mentioning the bears, I hadn’t watched it except to click through in disgust because my link wasn’t working. But since you mentioned them I really gave them some time and watching them is very interesting, also relaxing.
