Puppy Play Time

Spring weather is just so perfect for letting the puppies outside for puppy play time.  We consistently bring all the puppies outside every 2 hours so they can go to the bathroom and have some fun romping around for a little bit.  During the winter months, the outside time is usually relegated to just the necessities.  Open the door, the puppies run outside, go potty, and then run back inside. On nice days the puppies really don't want to come back in.  It is a constant counting game for me to make sure all the puppies stay in the backyard area.  1, 2, 3, 4, 5...where's number 6?  Oh there - under the bushes! I spend most of the time making sure all the puppies are accounted for and having fun.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I just bought a new puppy play pen so the puppies can play a little longer without worry of them getting hurt or getting lost. It is really great.  Of course the first thing the puppies all did was to run around the perimeter again and again saying, "HEY! WE CAN'T GET OUT!!!" and "HEY!  WE CAN'T MAKE YOU COUNT US CONSTANTLY!!!" I have to say, I love the new playground area.  It has a half-door to the gate so I can walk into the playpen without the puppies all running out.  It makes it so much easier to keep the area clean and it is pretty easy to move it to lovely shady areas as the sun moves.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres put up our really nice big sun umbrella for the puppies so the whole area is just the perfect temperature. Yesterday when we brought the puppies in after their long play session, they just crashed.  They were out cold.  If you looked closely, you could see little smiles on their faces as they dreamed about how much fun they had for the day. Night Puppies!
