The puppy pen received a total makeover! It needed a major overhaul after the power outage and the design team went to work, installed new flooring and freshened everything up. The pups enjoyed checking out the renovated pen and had to get used to walking on the vinyl flooring. It is much more slippery than the rubber matting but it didn't take long for them to get used to it. It is important to expose the pups to many different kinds of things including flooring. We work hard to do this and try to follow the "Rule of Seven", where for different categories, the pups are exposed to seven different types of each thing. They were quite tired from all the excitement and needed a nap...the donut bed is still an old favorite, even if they all don't fit.

T-C Pups Day 46: Watch what happens
We all had a busy day trying to catch up on lost time due to the storm. The weather was surprisingly warm, so after I returned from a snow hike with Trixie and Jam, the pups had their first trip outside and were served lunch on the deck.Then it was play time in the snow. They were so curious and loved running around in it.
These pups will be going to their new homes in two weeks and except for one, all the rest will have to get used to the snow, which I'm sure will still be here.
Follow the leader through the snow...
