Due to an unforeseen emergency surgery, and week stay in the hospital, I have been unable to post recently. My wife Debbie has done an excellent job taking care of the pups and they are all thriving. Tomorrow with the help of a friend I plan to get the pups outside and introduce them to some deer liver drags and pelt tugs. All the pups are spoken for and most of the pick-up dates have been planned.Today a friend brought his kids over and they played with the pups inside. Both the kids and the pups had fun. I think it is important to expose the pups to children and as many new things as you can. Early and ongoing socialization should result in a more stable and steady dog.
