So as I said yesterday, the pups are now in the garage in a pen.  I open it up when I want them to go outside for a run around:

 ABOVE: The Puppy pen opened up so they can come and go from outside.  It's going to be so easy to train them to go outside for bathroom!
They will learn how to go through the dog door by following Coco eventually.

Yesterday when I opened the back door, they stood at the edge and were so scared! There was a step down!  You would think it was a cliff with a sheer drop they way they acted!  So funny and cute.

They eventually fell out the door, then figured out how to climb in and out.

ABOVE:  The dog run.  It's just the perfect size for them... and there is plenty of shade for when it's really hot over summer.  I will probably get them a paddle pool to cool off in too.

I have patchwork class in Hamilton this morning, so after dropping the kids off at school, I will whip home and give the pups a run around outside before heading into Hamilton.

I will be home by lunchtime, so they will be fine for a couple of hours on their own... with Coco keeping them company, *smiles*.

I will be working on my current blue quilt in class... still got heaps to do on it!


ABOVE:  We have very clever little puppies!
Gawd I'm huffing and puffing today!  I had just finished washing the floor and running up and down the dog run with the puppies!

Right, I'm off to patchwork now... see ya later.

And whoops!   Got busy, forgot to update.
Patchwork was just neat... two new ladies, and at least 6 of the 'regulars'.
I didn't get as much done as I wanted... took a while to figure out the spacing for the sashings and so on.

But, I've a better idea now on how to do the next row at least.

I stopped in at Spotlight for yet more of the blue fabric, then came home.

Straight away outside with the puppies and Coco, cleaned up some poop and so on.  Sat in the sun and had beetroot and ham salad while watching the girls play.

Then it was time to get the kids from school.
Home now, and working on ... dinner.

In half an hour I will be outside with the pups again.

Falling asleep in me chair tonight.  So tired!  Puppies have added a whole new layer to me life.  I was sitting outside in the pitch black night, torch in hand, watching puppies play on the grass!  Then inside, and playtime in the family room till their bedtime.

It's like having two babies...thank god they sleep through the night!

Off to bed, another day tomorrow.


  1. Didn't take them long to figure that door out did it! Clever kids!

  2. That's quite the setup you've got there for the puppies!

    Omg so cute Chris! How totally adorable! Can they fit under the gate or is there something blocking it for that to happen?

    1. I don't think they can get under it... but I will check, even though they are not going to be outside on their own for a long time yet!

  6. Ha they clever alright lil bundles of fluff..... Glad it's been sunny too for them to run around lucky....

  7. They are so clever and so cute ��❤
