Pictures will happen this weekend, and internet will hopefully be hooked up later today (I'm posting at work now...don't tell!).
Liz, I haven't done too much enrichment stuff with them yet because honestly, just getting their basic needs met is wearing me out right now. Still better than growing up in the shelter, but I'm hoping to start on some "Puppy's Rule of 12" stuff soon. I may have a couple friends coming over to meet them on Sunday, and if the weather stays nice, they will have their first trip outside if I can figure out some temporary fencing. Two or three puppies I could just let out in the yard and keep an eye on, but I can barely keep track of all 8 in my laundry room.
My boyfriend took individual pictures of them last night (on his phone, so I don't have them to post and the lighting was horrible, so they mostly look like blobs) and I was really sad that there's only two that I feel like I really know (the two naughtiest ones). I hope to be able to start bringing them upstairs one or two at a time to hang out in the evenings as well.
I did start working on sit last night also. I just stood in their room with a handful of kibble and any time one of them sat down, I shoved a piece of food in his mouth. A couple of them seemed like they might actually be figuring it out.
I'm surprised at how much I am actually enjoying them. That sounds horrible, but anyone who knows me knows I don't do puppies. I'll definitely be ready for them to leave in another couple weeks, but I'm also looking forward to getting to know them more before then.
