You'll just have to suffer through more puppy pictures.
They have discovered the delights of firewood.
These really are interesting puppies. At just over six weeks, they are very aware of their environment and already keeping watch over it.
They are very different from border collie pups, who would be all over the place, into everything and already trying to figure out how to play frisbee and simultaneously rule the world. These pups check things out, stake out their space and guard it. They even bark at intruders. The foxes may laugh at them now, but just wait a little while.
It's interesting to see how the other animals react to them as well. The sheep, who would never dream of back talking one of the BCs or even think about questioning thier tyranny, have no fear whatsoever of the guard dogs, including the mother.
Blood does tell, even in adorable little puffballs.
Did I mention that RB has decided to keep one as well? More playmates for Connor.
