Yes, they are growing up. Time does not stand still. The first litter I showed them was in October, about a year after my sister got them, when the older one was just two and the younger 21 months old. No pictures. Elena was petrified and would not go in the pen. The puppies were 7 or 8 weeks old, and already rough and tough.

So when Jenna had her litter, nearly five years ago, I started the kids out when the pups were just 2-3 weeks old. The girls are two and a half and not quite three there, as that was August, and she would be 3 in October.

The next set was when they were both 3, and Analisa has her glasses. The pups were born in the end of March, and it is already warm enough for the girls to be out without coats. They change so fast.

It was nearly two years in between litters. That third picture was Jenna's third litter. The puppies were again born in March. It looks like Easter Sunday there. The puppies are older again.

The last two sets of photos, the girls are seven. Jenna lets them do whatever, and just treats them like a few extra puppies in there -- very gentle, and easy going. There are rules, that we have to follow. Walk forwards, not backwards. No horseplay when in with the puppies, not even in fun. No running. They are really good.

selzer I took the little guy, Mufasa, over to my other sister's kids this afternoon, and then we went to dog class, but just to sit on the sidelines. The girls I have in the classes are in heat so they are grounded, so I brought the boy.

No pictures of Gwen and Andrea with the pup. The boy passed out in the car on the way home. LOL!

selzer Thanks. I go the girls on Sunday after church. After a quick jaunt to PetsMart for more toys -- Jenna chewed all of the little one's toys, so now they must be supervised. We ate at the Home Town Buffet, and then rushed home to set up the yard.

The girls helped me drag the x-pens up and set them up. They carried the trampoline out, and filled the water bucket. The helped me set up chairs, and distribute toys. Then we carried Mufasa and Morgan out. After a few minutes, Elena came in with me and she and I scrubbed their area. I showed her how to paper a whelping box and let her help with that.

Then after applying sunscreen, and returning Mufasa and Morgan to their area, we carried the little ones outside. I left Jenna out with Elena in the pen while Analisa and I cleaned their area and put more papers down. Then we all went outside.

Other than playing with puppies, we did math, and studied for the religion test, watched Buck Rodgers. They played with my little people. While Analisa was working on homework, Elena told me she was bored, so I put a stool up to the sink and had her wash the dishes. She thought that was kool. LOL!

I am reading them Little Town on the Prarie, and The Magician's Nephew.

In the morning, I made them eggs and bacon and blueberry muffins. They like to give their leftovers to Babsy. They are all excited that Babs is wearing her "diapie." I let watch Prince Caspian, while we were eating breakfast, and another busy day. Lots of homework. But we got a lot of puppy-time in too. I was lucky to get them home by 9:30. A school night.

I am hoping to train them how to train Muf. We put a collar and lead on him, and I had Elena follow him with the leash. Then, I showed each of them how to lure him into a sit with a treat, and how to give him the treat immediately. They are animal lovers. And they listen to instructions well.

Lilie I agree with Jason. Very clever how you set it up to appear that you are containing puppies inside the x-pen. When in fact, you are containing children.

Clever...very clever indeed..........
