|What fun we have had this week!|
The house was quiet. The two large humans hadn’t been seen for a few days. Apparently the female human who’d been guarding the pack had gone out on an errand somewhere. That’s when it happened. Upon her return, Savannah the caregiver discovered that Surrey had actually facilitated a puppy escape by removing all the barrier slats from her whelping box. Mr. Cardinal was found roaming the kitchen and Mr. Denim was fast asleep with his rear end planted under the sofa. Neither put up a struggle as they were reunited with their siblings.
Of course, it’s not always the boys who are up to something. While Miss Plum was hoarding sticks in the backyard, Miss Shimmer spent her time studying nature. As the birds chirped from their perches on the trees, Miss Shimmer would answer back by howling at them. The little mermaid, Miss Blossom liked to wash her feet in the water bowl or sit in it. In fact, she was so enchanted by the water bowl that once it was empty, she curled up in it and fell asleep. Little momma’s boy, Mr. Shine worked alongside Surrey to dig a little hole.
Her indiscretion about the escape attempt aside, Surrey has been a stellar mom. She has continued to nurse her pups regularly as well as play with them both indoors and out. She even demonstrated a great deal of patience when all of her puppies were whisked off to visit the vet. Not one to waste an opportunity, Surrey seized the moment to enjoy a nice long, leisurely nap. The gang passed their physicals with top marks and even the ride there and back was uneventful!
To our sweet little puppies who have given us so much love and happiness these past seven plus weeks, when we think of you we’ll find comfort in knowing how much happiness you will bring to your new families. You have given us so many kisses and memories that we’ll treasure always. So long, little ones. We wish you all the best in your journey and remember “Love was made for me and you!”
That concludes this edition of “Puppy Tales”. See you next litter!
