Kenya finally got to play in the pen with the pups this week! It was her first face-to-face-without-a-barrier-in-the-way encounter.
All did fine! Neither pups nor Kenya were fearful (unlike Baxter Boos!).
Take a look:
Kenya was remarkably tolerant (remember, Kenya herself is only 14 months old) and gentle -- very soft-mouthed with the pups and patient with them chewing on her ears. I suspect she'll make a good mom, too, one day.
And now that she's had her turn in the pen, it's the place she bolts to first as soon as we take her outside.
As far as she's concerned it's..."Oh boy! Eight more playmates!" :o)
We've been trying the pups out of the pen one-or-two-at-a-time with the big dogs. And they're holding their owning, despite learning some canine manners. :o)
I'll put up video of that over the weekend.
'Til next time,
Joan (who was completely wiped out with a migraine yesterday, and was neck deep in pup land Tuesday and Wednesday when it rained and I had to come up with creative indoor solutions for puppy playdom). :o)
