We took the pups outside later this
afternoon. They loved their
explorations around the side
yard, into a small flower bed,
over some lumber ( agility dogs)
running after Austin, and just
having a great time.
When they finally went
inside, they all crashed..
Following Austin, as though he were
the pied piper..

The pups are very busy these days
exploring the world around them.
We have been taking them out on
the lawn more, and how their
little noses go to the ground
to check out all the new smells.
When they are awake, they play
hard with one another. If one
plays too rough with too much
biting, they just avoid this pup.
It teaches the culprit, that if you
are too rough no one will want to
play with you. The pack generally
works out its problems, if just
Leeya still goes in occasionally to
nurse, and what happy kids these
are when this happens. There
is NO ONE like Mom.
I took these pictures while some of
the pups were awake, and others
were out for the count.
I get them all kinds of toys, but
today's favorite thing was an
extra piece of tracking line.
I knotted it up and put it in with them,
and they ignored their other toys
and played with that rope for quite
some time. They continue to be
a delight to watch and cuddle.
