|TinTin and puppies... Nickel is puppy on upper right|
Today's task is to trim puppy toe nails. I'll do this while the puppies nurse so they associate nail trimming with something positive. This doesn't always mean that they'll enjoy having their nails trimmed. While they nurse I also massage their feet and toes, tail and ears.
Wendy and Joe came to visit today. Nickel let Wendy into the box and fell asleep in her lap while the puppies nursed. They're wearing the blue jumpsuits, booties and wash hands with surgical soap. This is a precaution reducing the chances of introducing any harmful microbes, viruses, etc to the puppies. The hairy mass behind Wendy is the ever present TinTin.
