We had our final visitors tonight, JT, who is part of Newman's (Mr Red) family stopped by to say hi with his girlfriend Gwen. I think Newman took a shine to Gwen because as they came out of the pen he scurried right on over to her. He is a sucker for cute girls. It was a great visit and we are so happy we got to meet both of you. Welcome to the family.

In preparation for the big photo shoot today, the sextuplets got a bath. A few loved it and few were not very pleased with me during the bath. The bathing began at 6:30 a.m. and ended around 7:30 a.m. Needless to say I think I was just as wet as they were
The photo shoot was the bomb, thank you again Michael and Angela. What a fun time and GREAT memories.

Boy the day started out with a bang, we not only had 1 escapee we had 4, yes I said 4. What next, the xpen came down with no options but crating the puppies. But I am pleased to announce that they made three and four hours clean in their crates.. YEAH! They also slept 5 hours straight (ok just a little whining) last night.

Ok so some of you might have noticed that there were no puppies on the web cam today. That isbecause they took a great big adventure. They had their first car ride and their first public appearance, ok so it was just at PAWS National Headquarters, but they were out of their normal routines and they did GREAT! While the puppies played in the puppy play room, mama Hula got treated to a day at the spa. She was looking rather nappy so it was time for her to look like a new woman. She is so pretty now. The puppies had many a visitor today, some just stood outside the window to watch their antics. Which were many. Like being able to fit through the bars of the play pen. Too funny

We made the decision today to take down the whelping box and go with an xpen and crates. Since we have had an additional two escapes (Not Newman this time, Mr. Orange) we are going to try the xpen first and crate on every other day and then towards mid week go to all crates, I HOPE. We also have to take Miss Hula into consideration, she is having a hard time giving up nursing. But we will figure that out as we go, we always.

While Doug and I along with our neighbors watch the Red Wings, the sextuplets were in the penalty box, basically behind the gate in the dinning room. They kept popping up on the gate as if to cheer the wings on. I think they needed to do that a little more often. Some really cute photos.. They shoot, they score, (Cute points at least)

That's right folks it is time to get the little golden nuggets used to a crate, so tonight we brought a crate in for the puppies to get used too. At first they were very tenative and would barely approach it. A couple of them got really brave and stuck their head in as if to say to one another, "you go, no you go, you go, NOOOOOOO you go. So they both went into the crate. Only one puppy was "brave" enough to lay down for a very brief moment. Mr Newman (aka Red) laid down for like a nano second. Our goal is by the time they reach their raisers arms they will be sleeping through the night in their crates. Fingers crossed.
