“A Good Education”
Day by day, this group is becoming more active and playful. They’re spending much more time awake and when we’re in proximity, we can hear them bouncing off the walls of the whelping box as they engage in play with their siblings. This action continues well into the evening in between numerous rest periods. The play station is extremely popular and it allows the pups to hone various skills. When we walk up, they freeze and twelve little heads pop up in anticipation of a little petting or a cuddle. Of course, it’s not all just fun and games. A good education is necessary so the pups spend some of their time in seminars with (the mechanical) Mr. Owl who is teaching them English. The gang is also doing some science experiments on their own. For instance, is it possible to stuff a large plush ball into the mouth of the water bowl? The answer is yes!
You’d think that with all the fun being had in the whelping box, that the pups would be content within their environment – all except Mr. Sapphire who managed to climb over a sibling to freedom in the living room. Needless to say, being alone is no fun, so he just sat in front of the entrance and waited there until we came by to hoist him back in. That was our cue to add another slat to the entrance to help keep everyone safe.
The gang is now getting three meals a day and the bowl they eat out of resembling a giant cowboy hat is typically licked clean to a polish. We must give Olivia some credit too since she keeps the milk bar open 24/7 for top-ups although we’re certain she relishes the break she gets from each puppy’s twenty-eight razor sharp teeth! Since everyone is growing so quickly, they need weekly grooming, and even the boys enjoy spa day with mani-pedis as much as the girls do. Of course, we’re not using colour on anyone just yet.
That’s it for now but be sure to join us next week for another engaging installment of “Puppy Tales”.
