LIANE HANSEN, host:

Last week we broadcast a story about puppies.

(Soundbite of puppies)

HANSEN: Six Shiba Inu puppies made famous by a puppycam on the Web site ustream.tv. We posted links to it and other puppycams, and the story has been one of the most emailed on npr.org for days. We have an update. The Shiba Inu pups are now eight and a half weeks old, and this weekend the first of them goes off to a new home. Ustream users' comments on the departure of the puppies promised tears and deep sadness when they're taken by their new owners. Well, we have good news. The breeders have decided to keep one of the dogs, so puppycam will continue. The other pooches all have been sold to nearby families. The breeders say that they will arrange a reunion and will post updates and pictures as the litter grows. For now, you can still visit the puppycam links. They're on our Web site, npr.org.
