In the picture below the pups are enjoying the freedom of the whole kitchen. It works well for us because the become very active and soon tire out. A sleeping puppy is a quiet puppy.
Below, the White Tornado is surveying his territory. In another second he will be running full speed toward something he sees in the yard.
Here is the White Tornado mid-stride as he races to me. He comes so quickly and every time we call. The other two pups tend to ignore us.
Below is the tan male. He has no name because he never did anything to irk us. He is an extremely mellow puppy and his new people will be getting a dog that will be a real joy.
I hung a toy from a tree branch and all the pups enjoyed playing. The branch is supple enough to let the pups pull and the branch pull back,making the toy seem alive. Again, you will notice who has control of the toy and who is standing by.
So we are having a ball with the puppies and look forward to the weekend with mixed emotions. It will be nice to be free again, but we will miss the puppies something awful. There is the feeling in the middle of the night when they're barking constantly, but the feeling out in the yard makes it all worthwhile.
Right now, the tan male is being picked up Friday evening, El Diabalo Saturday morning, and Aria Sunday morning.
