    Got my 10 from Meyer and I'm loving them! Meyer did a great job shipping them from ohio to California. They were warm and comfortable with a heat pack and nest material. I am so happy with them. Thank God all 10 are alive and well and healthy and so beautiful! They bring me so much joy

    I put puppy training pads down on top of the shavings so that they could find food and not eat the shavings.
    When can I safely put them directly on shavings and do away with the training pads?
