Trouble! Wink has climbed the stairs into a strange new world - the kitchen
Wink has found her Mom.
What is this?
The rest of the crew have not figured out the stairs yet!
Winona didn't climb out but she is telling Willa if you make enough noise someone will let you out!
When company come the puppies get cuddled and shoes get investigated.
Willa likes these shoes especially the laces.
So many toys for Winona to choose.

Wilson and Willa are not so rowdy (right now)

Lots of snuggles for Wren too
Winona found a lap to snooze on right away.
Winona is finally awake. We had a great visit.
Almost all the pups have climbed the stairs, some like Wink go down as easy as going up!

It is fun to investigate new things. Whisper is a curious pup.
Winona and Wink like exploring around the house.

There is a strange purple bird in the puppy palace that the puppies can finally reach.
Wren has it and helpers are ready
It is not easily caught but Wink and Weston are eager.
The bird is captured. It has been on the endangered list many times and once again surgical repair was required.
