Hello! Most of you are familier with Annie my beagle and her 5 adorable beagle puppies. They are now almost 3 weeks old and really a lot of fun. Today I set up the exersize pen on the floor of the living room (where there box is) and put down a blanket and a few pee pads on the floor. At first a few did nothing but cry. Soon though a few where growling and playing. (out of curousity, growling is normal right? I don't like have a pack of soon to be vicious beagles on my hands do i?) two did nothing but try to fit there heads through the wire on the pen (only muzzles fit) They do seem ill at ease on the floor but I plan to leave them there for a while as I want them to get use to being other place then just the whelping pool. Two are trying out there barks. They are so much fun to watch and listen to. I want to hear your stories of puppy play time. Either with litters or just single pups, what kinds of things have you given them to play with, what did they like or not like. Annie just went in and stole the dental bone I had put in there to see if they would play with it. She now hid it under the tv stand. She is not sure about the whinning but isn't concerned enough to stay in the pen with them (the gate is open so she can come and go as she pleases) Anyway come on and share some funny stories and give me some ideas for toys for my babies.
