Flat Coat Envy

Today the puppies met the big dogs- Niche, Tom and Monty (well he's a short dog but thinks he's a BIG dog! haha). The puppies pretty much ignored Monty and Tom but they were INFATUATED with "Uncle Niche." he was like the pied piper of puppies. Anywhere he went the group followed it was very cute. And my sister stopped by yesterday morning for some puppy cuddles.

The puppies have also begun to learn their 1st training lesson- screaming doesn't earn you food. This morning I got up at 5, and the puppies started barking wanting their breakfast. They were ignored, so they played amongst themselves, fell back to sleep, etc. When I moved around the house again around 6:30 they started to bark for food again, which was also ignored. I went about my morning routine feeding my dogs and myself essentially ignoring the puppies. At 7:15 they all sacked out sleeping again, caring not one iota what I was doing, so that's when I fed them. Food comes when you are quiet not when you are being demanding!

I love the picture of Niche and the puppies! I bet the feathering of his tail is very attractive to them!
