Puppies are getting pretty rowdy these days.  Time to get the gate made or these guys will be running wild.  I had the dog bed outside the whelping box so Nickel could lay and watch the puppies.  If she stays in the box they don’t stop nursing.  Well, it didn’t take long last night for the puppies to pick up her scent and start trailing her.  Good Nose Work practice!   4 29 043   I ended up putting towels around the dog beds so they’d have a soft cushion when they toppled off.  Nickel seemed quite content with the setup.4 29 052  4 29 038

The puppies seemed to like the change of scenery too.

I just find it mesmerizing to watch how Nickel’s tongue works….

She makes it sound pretty tasty too.
