Look at what we have!
Sugar’s pups are 6 days early, Honey’s were 1 day late. My window of time in between shrank away to, well, not enough.
I had planned on moving Honey into a wading pool and turning the whelping box over to the newcomers. But after the tragedy of losing a pup, and the fact that they weren’t even a week old yet, I knew they still needed that box with its safety rail.
But, she seemed fine with the pool.
And look, it just fits, barely, in our bathroom. This way, we can keep the two moms separate until the puppies are older and ready to be best friends.
Then, they all go out to a nursery set up in the garage at night and weather permitting, in the breezeway with the door to the garden open during the day.
But for now, I have a houseful, and I am going to enjoy it while it lasts, they will be gone way too soon. 8 weeks will fly by.
