independent 4 1/2 week old

Bolt had been climbing out of this litter's box for a couple of days. Razzle and Frolic both have their day apart litters in the same room. Today they got moved into the puppy room to stage 2, but the last couple of days it was not unusual to go back there and find Bolt curled up sleeping with Razzle on the floor. We're a few days later going to stage 2 for various reasons.

Last night as I was getting ready for bed, I looked in and saw him climbing into the large litter box meant for Razzle and Frolic to use if they need to, tail wagging (he was out in the room). They have not been introduced to a litter box before the move today. They've been using a pad under the Rascal grate, like we just started using with the last litter of puppies as the first stage. I watched as he stretched out to pee in the box, and then started wagging his tail as he was getting back out of the box. After I took my shower, I looked back in on them, and they were all back in their boxes, so I thought Pam had put him back in. She hadn't. She told me this morning she saw him climbing back into his litter's box.

Today when I went back to get him after we had set up the next stuff in the puppy room, he was sleeping in the box with Frolic's babies. He's one of Razzle's pups.

We've never had anything like this happen before, but they are a lot of fun.

I'll try to get some video in the coming days. I've been pretty busy adding stuff to the house for the dogs. I need to build a new deck in the back dog yard and get a new dog door in back there now. Actually, he doesn't seem to act any different than any of the other puppies in any other respect. The second stage setup takes away the chance for any climbing out. The new puppy room has the play area right beside the sleeping area.

The two litters have been enjoying meeting each other through the expen wall that separates the two sleeping pens. We started feeding them tonight by lifting them out of their sleeping pens into the play area, and they ended up all mixed up eating out of each others' plates. There are two in each litter that are really close in color -two pieds and two extreme partis, and Pam had to look closely to see which ones went back into the right pens. I couldn't tell.

There are pictures on our website now. Sorry, looks like they are already spoken for.

I think the one that likes to climb out should have been Kody's new brother. I didn't have internet for awhile and I had hoped Karen visited for a reason besides just a hello.
