during the last week or so, hubby & i have been experimenting with leaving the pups out of their kennels while we aren't home.
we've learned a bit from our previous experiences: "the death of the baby gate", "the death of the blinds", and of course, "the death of the carbon monoxide detector".
instead of leaving them down where there is NOTHING (toys didn't count apparently) to do...we've left them with lots of toys, their beds, and the window so they can head up neighborhood security.
let's hope they passed this test with flying colors! i would much rather see their little floppy eared heads pop up at the window when i got home...unless they are holding a piece of dismembered couch in their mouths at the same time.
