Saturday Follies

Our Saturday started off way earlier than I would have liked.  Remember when I said crate training was going well?  Last night not so much.  Juliett seems fine with being crated - she settles in, sprawls out on her bed and goes to sleep - never making a peep.  Charli complains at first and settles after a few minutes.  Tango is a large pain in the rump.  He complained at the start and settled in - then at 2 am he starting crying, barking, whining.  This got Charli all wound up so she started in as well. Between the two of them someone was making some sort of annoying noise for the rest of the morning.  At 5:45 I gave up and let them out of their crates and booted them outside.

Little critters are all doing great - as is Piggers.  Weather was amazing today so there was lots of outside time.  This afternoon we let the pups and the pig play in the meadow - they ran about a hundred miles.  I am hoping they were more active today so they will be tired tonight.

Right now the pups are all outside hanging out in the warm weather.  Pig has had his tick check - we call it checking for bugs and its a part of his nightly routine.  No ticks to report tonight.  He is in his bed and will get up for a chewie when I get the pups settled for the night.  I am about to head down to critterland to take care of the ferrets and the kitties.  They are all doing quite well.  Violet seems just great - other ferrets are wild and crazy!  Kitties are feeling good as well.

It was a nice Saturday.  Tomorrow we will have people over for lunch which will be fun for the pups. In the meantime - keep your fingers crossed for us that the pups have a good night tonight....
