Had a nice visit from Simone and her family today followed by Linell who came to see Zoe. The pups had a good time romping around. We brought Echo out to romp with Scrambles for a little while and Drita out to run with Zoe after their people had a little one on one time with their pups. The others including those mentioned had a late breakfast on the deck as well as their mid day meal. They had a good romp following each. Their tolerance for cold seems to be building steadily. Probably more so than my own. Mine seems to dwindle with each passing year. They still bare watching because as soon as they start to slow down they're showing signs of being obviously cold and ready to come in, Tonight the cropped pups will receive their last dose of Marquis and tomorrow the uncropped theirs. Their habitat seems to be staying a bit more tidy but it's somewhat hard to tell because they are now separated into two groups. Stools still seem a little loose but improving slowly.... And I think they're holding on to their food a little longer. Otherwise, their behavior and affect is unchanged and they're tolerating their assortment of medications well. Maybe after giving my own dogs some due attention I'll rotate the pups out with me for movie time. Forever the multi-tasker. One of these days I'll have to add in the task of dismantling the remnants of Christmas. All things in due time as they say.
