These puppies were just not getting the idea of the pine pellets (many thanks to Rhani!). Plus they are messy. There are pine pellets everywhere! So this morning I talked to Karen Rowan, another breeder, who told me she uses fake grass with puppy pads underneath. I'll try anything! So off to Home Depot I went to purchase a 6'x6' piece of fake grass carpet! I cut it into 3' x 3' sections and put puppy pads underneath it to soak up the liquid (per Karen's instruction). So far, other than Rhani thinking I put that in there for her to lay on (Imagine that!), the puppies seem to think it's a good place to pee! Always the optimist!
An old friend from work and her son and his girlfriend came by to visit the puppies for a bit early this afternoon. It was really hot out so the puppies did not entertain them very long before taking a snooze, but they were cute anyway! I failed to get any photos of our guests with the puppies. Bad puppy grandma!
I tried the puppies on just soaked (not ground) kibble for their afternoon meal. They lapped up all the milk, but left the kibble. That made Rhani happy since she got to clean it up. We'll try again in a few days.
After the board meeting tonight, I brought the boys out on the patio to watch the Cardinals game with me. This was the first night outing for any of the puppies. Maxwell was not all that happy with it, but Jo Jo went about his usual business of exploring.
Here are a few photos and video clips from today. Enjoy!
Until next time....
I like to keep a diary of the puppies as much for myself as for prospective puppy buyers and interested friends. Sadly my blogs for Lucy's and Baili's litters are no longer available due to legacy systems, but I saved them off as pdf's and was reviewing them last night. It was a good refresher on all kinds of things and brought back lots of good memories. Looking forward to Imagine memories too!
