The litter if eleven have come to a crossroads in life. The litter turns three months old this weekend. How the time flies! But, they now have issues that many of our other SP Kennel litters have not had.
The biggest issue is: there are too many bodies for one dog house! That's right. It's becoming very close quarters. As they continue to grow, their dog house doesn't! Occasionally we can hear them in the middle of the night: "Hey get off me!" or "That's my side!"
People have asked "Why don't you just put two dog house in the pen and they can split up themselves?" We have tried. They all continue to pile in one house. They like each other!
So, the challenge in the next few days will be to split them up into two sleeping pens. We'd like to split them up into personality groups: excited, high strung and fast versus laid back and more calm. But, we are working on that!
During the late night puppy walk last night, we got one thing figured out: Coal would like to sleep in our bed. He continuously mentioned that he was okay with being split up with his bro's and sis's. He said that a spot alongside ChaCha, on the Lazy Boy chair in our bedroom, would be just fine.
