after our ordeal with the mudd and the rain and baths they all slept for awhile while I scrubbed and scrubbed the floor. I turned the office into a play zone and they had a blast. Over the last couple days we have been outside a lot. On and off over 18 hours a day. They have become very comfortable with outside. So inside play was something new. I let them race around the office with toys and balls and sticks. They played on the jungle gym too. I taught them how to use the puppy door to get in and out of the play pen. So they would come out and play and go back in to get a drink. We will probable be separating the pups from now on for outside pee breaks during the day. I need to discourage the behavior of digging. I think this is the best way. At this age they need to learn that outside is bathroom time not just play time.
