Carousel's "Easy" Litter

Diary - Page 14

March 20-25

It is a very busy time and very difficult for me to keep up with the Dairy. Puppies needs come FIRST. Diary and web page is much further down the list!

The weekend was full of visitors on Saturday Marion, Christine and Mike, Laurie and Tamara.

On sunday Cynthia, her husband and 2 kids came down to play with the puppies.

On Monday, Kathy and her 2 kids! and Laurie came Monday night. Laurie and I played one on one with each of the girls in the front yard. They are now ready for lots of one on one experiences.

On Tuesday CJ came in the morning and we had a quick play session with each of the boys one on one in the front yard. I'm not starting to see personalities that I think are telling about who the pups are. Tuesday afternoon Jennifer came by and then late in the afternoon the pups took a short car ride to visit Gina's house and go for a walk in her field. Gina took a lot of pictures and turned them into a slide show. You can watch it here on YouTube

On Wednesday the pups had a bit of a "down" day but that is okay, Bill came by after an appt we had and did a quick visit with the pups. This is also the last day of a great stretch of weather we have had, hoping not too much rain! it was 71 today or our warmest day so far, the pups have an LOVE OF WATER watch out homes! they play in their water dish so today I filled the top of the turtle sand box with water and they splashed around in it.

Thursday - another overall "easy" day for the pups. That said we are having a good amount of wind right now sustained at 22 with gusts to 35mph. The pups have both a kitchen tall trash bag as well as a plastic grocery bag tied to the chain link flying and popping in the wind in the puppy palace
