Summer seemed like it would never go, but all of a sudden, colorful leaves started trickling onto the ground. The puppies have been enjoying the cooler temperatures. This weekend, they had a good time playing in the yard and napping on fleece blankets.
Dad was cleaning up some of the marital arts equipment in the back yard, when one of the puppies found the rag he was using. It quickly turned into a group game of keep-away.
Mr. C was in a particularly bouncy mood and was up to his usual antics. He still gets quite a bit of air for such a big puppy.
The puppies had a good time running around the yard taking the towel away... until Miss S got the towel. Taking anything away from Miss S is easier said than done.
With all the cool weather coming on, Mom decided that the puppies needed something in the bottom of their crates to keep them comfortable. Last winter we tried pillows and blankets, but the puppies tore the pillows up and ended up peeing on the blankets. (They were a lot smaller then). Mom found some nice fleece blankets on sale and sewed them in half and then in half again. She then sewed a piece of cotton material (actually part of a sheet) to the back so that on cold days they can use the fleece side, and on cool days they can use the cooler side. I will have to take some pictures of the finished crate blankets and post them. Mr. M discovered his while I was sewing one of the others and claimed it immediately by smelling it, pawing it to adjust and then cuddling up on it.
First time pitbull owners who found two pitbull puppies abandoned on the side of the road and decided to adopt them...And then loved them so much, they decided to get two wonderful mastiffs.
