Ok, rainy days with a puppy are hard! Sophie has so much energy and to try and wear her out without lots of time playing outside is difficult. We've had several rainy days in a row and it is getting old. (Although I really shouldn't be complaining when I think of all of the people affected by Hurricane Ike!) I finally broke down and did a Starbucks run for needed energy!!
Sumo has decided that it is worth putting up with Sophie in order to still be in the same room as us. She has learned to keep her distance, but occasionally just can't help herself and attacks him.
One thing that Sophie loves is to be on our lap and chew on her toys. I like to cover my legs with part of her blanket. (I took a blanket and cut it into 6 pieces for her to have in her kennel etc..) This probably won't be part of our routine once she is full grown!!
They still go outside for potty breaks and to play a bit, but have to wait to come in until I have towels ready to wipe paws and wet puppies.
Eventually Sophie is ready for a nap! We put her into her napping area and she falls asleep quickly. Sometimes in very funny positions! I really don't think she has any bones in her body the way she flops around here and there. She sleeps a bit and reenergizes and wakes up ready to go!
For Sumo, Sophie's nap time is his favorite time of the day. Doesn't he just look happy??
Until Next time...
