Laid Back Saturday

We are having a laid back Saturday around here.  As I type this Winston is napping outside, the puppies are laying in the bedroom chewing on their bones.  Emma is snoozing by the pups.  The littles are all in various states of napping.  The weather here is lovely so the doors are open - which means that when Mr Pig wakes up he will go in his room rather than cause havoc with the puppies.

We signed up for a pig gift exchange for fourth of July through our pig group on Facebook.  Today we got everything wrapped and ready to ship this coming week.  It's quite a fun thing to take part in - we have done Christmas, Valen-swines and Easter so far and Winston has been S P O I L E D rotten.  This time we are paired up with a Florida piggy named Ziggie.

Crate training continues to go well - in fact - last night I opened a new bag of chewies - treats they get when they go to bed.  I didn't say a word and Tango went in the crate and laid down, then Juliett and then Charli.  Tango is funny - he has no attachment to his crate and will go in whichever one is closer. This time it happened to be Juliett's crate - she looked at me like 'WTH'.  She went in his crate and Charli went in her own.  They are getting better and better about going in and getting settled.  They do not, however, like to sleep in.  Tango wants out around 5:30 every morning - UGH.  Hopefully that will get better over time as well.

The humans are tired so it will be a lazy weekend I am guessing - lots of critter time....  <3
