The doGs smiled on us – Monday was not only warm and dry, but I was off from work and was able to let the puppies play outside that afternoon. While Cheery pretended to nap under the garden bench, all the while keeping an eye out for any danger, the little dogs got to learn about the big, new world known as the puppy yard. They had things to climb on and under, slides, tunnels, lots of different balls, and grass! Of course, I was too busy playing too to take any photos of that and didn’t pick up the camera until they started to tire out. You can see from the photos that we have a few ears up and their color is breaking – look at the red coming in on their heads, both on the sables and the tris (most noticable behind their ears). They are becoming very vocal while playing with each other. They are also becoming very messy! They’re pretty good about using their potty box, but somebody’s little alligator teeth tore open Cheery’s pillow and they joyfully pulled out all of the stuffing! Nothing is safe now! LOL! No doubt a lot of work, but we are having too much fun!
