With my boy Yorba off to canine college (or bootcamp depending on your perspective!) I'm getting into puppy mode. One of my breeder caretaker buddies generously loaned me a really cool gate to use in the puppy pen. The wooden gate will attach to the plastic x-pens and has slats that can be raised and lowered to accomodate Omeeka's comings and goings while insuring that the pups can't escape. I'm pretty sure my friend could make and sell these great gates. She says no time, she's too busy being a breeder caretaker!
Same BC friend has an awesome Little Tykes Rock and Ride plastic airplane that her puppies love to play on. I've been scouring the internet in hopes of finding one. Last night I had high hopes when I emailed an online vintage toy shop that had the airplane displayed on their website. My hopes were dashed this morning; the plane had already been sold.
On the upside, I found another cool looking Little Tykes toy tugboat and by waiting until the last 30 seconds of the online Ebay auction I was the winning bidder. Yes, it will cost more to ship the tugboat that it cost to buy it, but I think the puppies will really enjoy climbing, chewing, and sleeping in it. I can't wait for them to be here. . .
