It was very hot outside, but they didn’t care. They just wanted out and didn’t hold back communicating this to us. Notwithstanding the temperature and humidity, the gang had a great time in the yard and was going outside to play several times a day. Clever bunch that they are, they used the water bowls as splash pads which we had to refill continually. Then Miss Sky, class clown for the day, paraded around with the water bowl on her head. We’re not clear as to whether or not the other puppies laughed, but we certainly did.
Some of Surrey’s pups were still on hand to round out the teams so playtime was even more fun. Rock climbing was especially popular which lead to some puppies honing their gymnastic skills by catapulting five inches onto the grass below. Rugby proved to be fun as well, with or without the ball. Everyone demonstrated their track & field skills by running off spontaneously in a random direction and occasionally falling down in the process or carrying around a big twig which resembled either a javelin or a vaulting pole – we’re not sure which. There certainly was a lot of buzz in the yard and every puppy was busy doing one thing or another.
|We are such a quiet and happy bunch!|
Like their mom Heidi, these pups are an alert, well-balanced and affectionate bunch who are happy to make friends with everyone. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time has passed so we’re now firming up travel plans for some and getting them used to crates to help ease the stress of travelling. As the puppies mature, they are becoming even sweeter and more affectionate. We have been treasuring our remaining days together with each and every one of them. So remember as you go off on your journey: “I wish you bluebirds in the spring, to give your heart a song to sing, and then a kiss, but more than this, I wish you love”. So long, little ones.
That concludes this edition of “Puppy Tales”. See you next litter!
