Piper & Rowan Puppies – Week 3

Puppies came out on the deck this morning for outdoor adventures.  They got to run around a bit and they got their nails cut.  As you can see, eyes are starting open, they can now hear.  As a result, there is BARKING!  We have had an escapee from their whelping box...
