    Smile Driven to Distraction.

    Although we have not been flooded out here in Bundy our outside is a lake and the puppies are not able to go out to play hence round and round the house goes the chasey games. Also little Rowan has decided that he wants to mate with Rose and that is a problem, He is going to have a little op shortly as he is very forward for 3.5 months. I have to have eyes everywhere as this pair love to put whatever they can find into their mouths luckily I keep everything away that I can if possible except they got hold of the toilet roll and proceeded to start tearing bits off and eating it before I got to them. The worst is when I take them outside and try to find a dry spot for toilet then it is oh boy eat the grass splash the mud and try to nick off into the water. I do love them.

    I know puppies require patience... But puppies + the weather we've had lately, you need to be a saint!!! My dogs both love splashing about in mud and puddles, too, but go outside for a pee in the rain? Oh god forbid, lol.

    As far as I know - Golden Retrievers allowed to remain wet and damp in warm humid conditions are prone to fungal outbreaks - so despite the weather, you will need to make sure they're thoroughly dried off for most of the day.

    If you can get to an area suitable for dog exercise that's relatively dry or even salt water - I'd be taking them there too.

    And make sure they have plenty of chew toys. My fave for my dog (her fave too) is something called a "squirrel dude" that you can load with dry dog food for the dog to work out. Mine does by tossing the dude around so the food gets bounced out.
