  1. Awwww November 4th – the Mystery of the Toys

    November 4, 2009 by myeye

    Toys are a problem around here. There’s no shortage (heaven knows!), but things happen to toys. The big dogs de-stuff them and carry the carcasses for months. The puppies dump them in the water bowl. I rescue them and they dry on the back of the sink.

    Toy Drying 11-4-09These should be back in commission by tomorrow afternoon

    This afternoon everyone got out in front with the puppies.  While I was trying to put big dogs back and catch Holmes and Watson, Watson made a break back into the house and grabbed one of the carcasses.  I wonder for how long he had been plotting that move.

    Crate practice 11-4-09I’ve put a crate in the puppy pen and when the boyz are all tuckered out (like they are now), they crawl in and take it for a test snooze.  This is good practice for little show dogs.  For now, the door is open and they can come and go, but their natural denning instinct will make this a safe haven for life.

  2. Chase Plays With His Puppies – a video

    Chase loves his babies.  He lies outside the puppy pen and whines.  When I go in to feed or cuddle or clean, he’s right behind me.  Yesterday, I let the puppies and Chase go out in the front courtyard together.  I have to watch him because he gets so excited, but overall they had a great experience.
