Right now our oldest golden is being left out so to speak. We try to do special stuff with him but we are knee deep in the sextuplets. Every once in awhile he pokes his head in the whelping box and as soon as the puppies wiggle or more he is out of there. This is the first time he came close and stayed close to a puppy. I think he is warning that puppy. "Listen puppy I live here, in about 4 weeks you are out of here!"
