The lovely Piccolo has hit her stride and seems to have settled into her maternal routine and is FINALLY back to eating her kibble. Here she is, comfortably nursing her brood of five in her whelping box.
Ziva’s enjoying playing individually with the October born puppies, whether hers or Koko’s. We let them out individually to scamper around the perimeter of their Xpens. It gives them a great opportunity to taunt and tease their littermates, as they test out their newfound freedom.
And Koko’s enjoying outdoor sunshine and the best that the Maple Street kitchen has to offer. She has learned that patience pays off in the kitchen. What could be better?
A life without puppy poops on the linens, I’d say! ;>)
All is well, here at Maple Street. Thanksgiving is only days away and Piccolo’s puppies will be two weeks old that day. There are five of them: three males and two females . . . and they keep Pic and me MORE THAN BIZZY! I still have the baby monitor on their pen, so that I can hear any nighttime calamity . . . but they’re all happy and quiet. We’ve got the temperature stabilized, nursing is happening predictably & every four hours – and everyone’s digging Jazz Piano on Pandora, while yours truly plays in the kitchen. Life is good.
Meanwhile, we await the second television broadcast with a Kensington Tibetan Terrier up on the big screen – please watch with us on Thanksgiving Day!
Questa took Best of Breed down in Oaks, PA on 16 November 2019 at The National Dog Show. THIS is the dog show that is televised annually at 12pm on Thanksgiving Day. Watch it on NBC. They are airing it in every time zone at 12pm. Tibetan Terriers are in the Non Sporting Group. We already know that he did not place in the Group – but that’s ok by me. He’ll be up on the big screen! Questa is out of a Yogi x Billie breeding and he has a number of brothers and sisters out there including Gryffin and Bodhi. If you’ve got the time? Please ‘watch’ with us!
Meanwhile, it’s back to the laundry for me right now. I am changing pen linens today, so that I can have a couple of hours off on Thanksgiving to WATCH THE DOG SHOW on NBC! Join me at noon on Thanksgiving Day, as we root for one of Kensington’s finest.
