well it doesn't take them long. All litters do the same thing. They are all under the steps. You know the spot with spider webs and pine needles. The spot I can't reach them. All 11 are under the steps playing with a big bone that one of the girls must have been saving for a future date. The same spot that Bella would have delivered them if I would have let her. I even tried spraying water on the concrete to entice them to come out and play but no luck. So I'm sitting on a beach blanket in the yard while they are under the steps playing.
