The Fine Wine Bichons
Rescued from a complete kennel dispersal sale (commercial kennel auction) on
September 27, 2003
. They sold everything including the fixtures.
Instead of these babies going to another commercial kennel, they came into loving arms with Small Paws® Rescue, thanks to your support.


There are four eight week old puppies that were born on 7/29/03. Their names for paperwork purposes only are:
Grenache Female
Reisling Male
Chenin Blanc Female
Cabernet Sauvignon Male
(We save all puppies for adoptors who are grieving the loss of a pet or person in their lives within the last 6 months)
How to Adopt Puppies


Here they are at our vet's office in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


The babies were hungry and everyone was thirsty.


They will all be in quarantine for 2 weeks. Two of the sisters cried to be together so we moved them to a bigger cage so they could be together.

There are THREE sisters that are only 18 months old. They were rescued from a lifetime of breeding. One already has four babies.


This is 18 month old Chablis and her four babies. Chablis was born on Jan 23, 2002. The babies had been taken from their Mama at the kennel, two days ago.
Bichons are slow to mature and need to stay with their Moms for at LEAST 10 weeks.
Our auction bidder put the babies back in with their Mama and she was afraid of them at first.
When she realized these were her missing babies, she wagged her tail so hard the crate almost turned over! The babies were ecstatic to have Mama back.
The babies are eating solid food now, and not nursing anymore, but they are all so happy to be together again. The smallest one is really still needing his mama and stays right close to her.
We will separate them gradually from her, for a few hours each day until they are alright with being separated.


This is 18 Month old Champagne, Chablis' sister, also born on Jan 23, 2002.


This is 18 month old Chardonnay, sister to Chablis and Champagne, born on Jan 23, 2002. She has already had two litters.:(
Champagne and Chardonnay are very attached it seems.


This is little Sauvignon Blanc. She was born on 3/11/01 and is 2 years old. She may be pregnant.


This is little Merlot, the father to Chablis' four puppies, and the father if Sauvignon Blanc is pregnant. He is a DOLL and was born on 2/22/00. He is three years old.


Merlot was scared at first but then came right around to us. I fell in love with him. See how he rested his paw on my hand?

How to Adopt Puppies


Your Love Is Sweeter Than Wine

by Susan Tolle
(Based on Song of Solomon 1:1-4)

Your love is sweeter than wine.
Your name is fragrant perfume.
How I love to be in Your presence.
How I love to sit close to You.
For You have made my heart glad
And I rejoice in You.
Your love is sweeter than wine,
And I love You.

Draw me away (I will run to You),
Draw me away (I will stay with You),
Draw me away (I will sing to You),
Draw me away (I will worship You)
Oh Lord.

Your love is sweeter than wine.
Your name is fragrant perfume.
How I love to be in Your presence.
How I love to sit close to You.
For You have made my heart glad
And I rejoice in You.
Your love is sweeter than wine,
Your love is sweeter than wine,
Your love is sweeter than wine,
And I love You.
