Did you think I was going to say "Forest"? Well one of the female puppies we are calling Chewbacca or Chewy because she loves to lay in our arms like a baby, snuggle up. She gets comfortable then reaches up and gives me puppy kisses when suddenly she decides my chin is a chew toy.
With the snow melting and back yard getting muddy, we have found a different place to exercise the dogs and puppies. Our friends are waiting for the pasture to green up and the grass to get up a bit before opening it up to the cattle. They have a big culvert that goes under the road for the cattle to get to this field. There is still snow blocking the culvert.
Once each day we load up 2 dogs and 5 puppies in the van. Then we drive about 5 miles out of town and slide the van door open. GET OUT OF THE WAY! Or you will be trampled! The are all so excited to run up and down the hills in the pasture; through the snowbanks. After 20-30 minutes, the puppies are running back to the van jumping in to go home and are almost asleep by the time they get home.
