|Four month old Kira had shown interest in the puppies
from the time they were born, but Bec was not
interested in her getting too close to them.
Occasionally, Kira would get next to the pen, and look
When the pups were 3 1/2 weeks old, I put a few
toys into the pen. Now, Kira really looked longingly
inside the pen, but this time decided to act upon her
impulses and go ahead inside. I thought she was after
the toys, but no, she wanted to be with the puppies.
She got in, checked them out and then proceeded
to lay down to "play" with them. She used such
a soft mouth with them especially when they
couldn't even half walk.
Believe it or not, Bec was okay with this situation &
has continued to allow Kira to interact with the pups.
