What could be more cheerful than watching puppies playing and listening to Christmas music? I keep the puppies in my Rover Enclosure which I have configured in a four by eight foot area. They stay safe in there when I can’t watch them. After they eat I turn them out into the room to play. They learned where I opened the enclosure to let them out. So now as soon as they finish eating the will gather at the gate, excited to get out to play. As you can see they play hard. Then as they fall off to sleep I return them to the Rover Enclosure. After a nice nap they are ready to do it all over again.

Pups At Five Weeks
The little black girl, I call Bonus, was escaping from the whelping box quite frequently. I thought maybe she had used one of her littermates as a step stool. Then she started getting back in. Then the black collar girl was escaping so I figured it was time to move them. I set up the puppy pen in the dog room ready for the big move.
What a surprise when a dear friend of mine from Atlanta showed up and helped me. We got all of the pups settled in to their new digs. I think they really enjoy having more room. When I can watch them I turn them out to play. What fun it is watching them.
The first few weeks the yellow girls turned on their personalities and really had me entertained with barking, running and playing. Then the black girls stepped up and became the stars with shining personalities. Today they were all on a roll. The little boy has been the same sweet little guy fighting off his sisters that constantly want to play. It has been fun watching all the changes. This video is the first time they got to play outside the puppy pen on Sat.
Last week was the Montgomery Alabama Dog Obedience Club agility trial. It has been many years since I have missed it. One of the last trials of the year. But I am happy to be at home with Punch and all the puppies. So what do you do when you can’t go to an agility trial. Take puppy pictures. The little boy was so sweet and sat for his photos. The black girl not so much. It is hard to get photos of a pup in motion but my husband was a pretty good puppy wrangler.
