Nothing like a little rain, a little dirt and white (and black / brown) puppies.
Which means they come into the house caked in mud and lay down for a nap.
Sometime later, nap over, they get up, all clean…. leaving behind a pile of dirt.
Sedi, our Alsatian, was not self-cleaning. When she got dirty I had to brush and cut to get the dirt out.
Now I just have to sweep up the remains.
For the past week, up until today, they have both been covered with pink splotches.
My little girls are trading their 28 puppy teeth for 42 dog teeth.
It happens fast, apparently.
I looked in Bonnie's mouth yesterday and there were no teeth on the side of her lower jaw…. Just a bloody channel.
Today it seems to have caught up to them.
They slept an hour later than usual – I had to wake them up!
They're not eating and not playing…. just sleeping.
I can't imagine how 42 adult teeth are going to fit into those jaws.
Time will tell.
In the meantime, I'm letting sleeping dogs lie.
They do look pathetic, don't they?
