February 9, 2014 - Sunday Evening Puppy Group

Eight puppies. Five females three males; 3 black females, 2 black males, 2 black sables females, 1 black sable male.  Stock coat.  All consistently sweet and responsive.  They have the noise of the two birds jabbering, the fish tank, a small tomcat that lives in and out and now my vacuum, which I run around the floors with a vengeance.  Two black females shrunk towards the back of the box  when I came close, but the rest came to me and ignored the vacuum.  I hugged and pet every puppy and then the two black females came to me when I called to them and they got hugpet too.   They are exposed to quite a lot of different sounds, smells, people, and animals.  Day is day, and night is night.  They are aware of our comings and goings and are very interactive.  I find this to be a very affectionate, calm litter.  Why is it called "a litter" of puppies?  It's not the same thing as a misdemeanor, so not really named well.  A murder of crows never hurt anybody, nor a business of ferrets.  So this has been my daily observation to date and my very first blog post.  I'll go tend my flock of shepherds now.  lkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbgtyfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffrffffffffffffffffffffffffffffrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrcccccccccccc
