Am I doing it right? (pict. heavy) girls and dogs
When my sister adopted her daughters, she said that I would have to teach them about dogs. She is very busy, and they travel a lot, and while the kids do all kinds of things: dance, Tae Kwon Do (sp?), horse riding, piano, gymnastics, swimming, among other things, they do not own a dog. I have been babysitting them on Sundays and sometimes I get them for a weekend or holiday, and I have babysat them for a couple of weeks.

So, I do feel very confident that the girls will do what I tell them to do and I make sure they are safe first. I thought this would be a good place to show how they have grown. It is hard to believe that these little ones are now seven and almost finished with 2nd grade.

Thanks for looking.

It looks good to me. I like how you use the ex pen to keep the children contained. Although I think they could use the trampoline in the last picture to escape.

Awww, so beautiful. Great job!

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..........

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.

Great job with the girls and the pups! Beautiful pics....creating the next generations of dog lovers and responsible ownership!

It's great seeing children being shown how to properly care for animals and treating them with respect :) Nice job!

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! 05-28-2014 09:58 PM
