The pups turned eight weeks on February eighth. It was a busy week. As the weather had been nice and in the 60’s they got to go out often. Being outside had a lot of benefits but also some draw backs. Like any toddler everything went into their mouths. It was great as long as it was bulas and toys…

They loved playing with the bulas, tugging each other around, playing keep away and just chewing on them. Other things that went in their mouths were not so great as they ended up with upset digestive systems. That meant a round of antibiotics. They didn’t mind they loved the bubblegum flavor. After being outside they enjoyed warming up on the back porch.
