Those Naughty Little Puppies

Yes, there does appear to be a lot of snow indoors in the home of the Shiba Inu puppies.  But it isn't snow, it is the remains of one of the large mats that are put into the puppies' pen for them to use to go to the toilet.

The little devils look so idyllic when they are sleeping, but it can be seen in this screen shot that the puppies were responsible for the devastation as the said mat can be seen half in the puppies' bed.

This happened the day before yesterday, and resulted in the webcam being switched off for a while to allow the cleaning up of the scene.  Yesterday evening it looked as though we were going to have a repeat performance, but something distracted the puppies and they started on a bout of rough and tumble in and around their bed area; then it was time for something to eat, and like many after a meal, they settled for a little post-prandial nap.

It can be quite misleading as to the actual size of these puppies, but you become aware of how small they still are, when the humans join them in the penned area for playtime at about 0630-0700 UK time.  After playing for a while, the puppies again settle down and it is time for a good night's sleep.  They are one of the few things that can bring a smile to my face at the present time.  I shall miss them when they leave for their new homes.
