Puppies got to hang out in the kitchen today, for the first time.  Once they’re big enough to start motoring around, we like to give them a bit more space to do that in, beyond their whelping box.  They also get exposed to the big dogs (on the other side of the baby gate), new “upstairs” noises like the dishwasher and vacuum cleaner.  They were big helpers while I was cooking breakfast.  You should have seen their little noses sniffing as I made bacon!
