The puppies have had two good sunny days outside this week and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I filled a dog bed with some water so they could have a paddle--once they had stopped trying to drink it dry. They play good games and crash out regularly not taking any notice when the big dogs have a good bark. They didn't mind the blaster which was in use as usual, trying to catch up with all these moulting dogs. The mower, two-stroke Charlie, sent them into the kennel, but I can't say I blamed them as it sounded like a tractor setting off. It was a busy mowing and strimming day as the grass had gone berserk after the torrential rain last weekend. Lots of visitors as usual to see the pups. I am still bringing them in at night and it has gone decidedly chilly tonight.
