What better time to hang out with Mom and play?

Fetch that stick!
It's interesting to note that while Dad mostly attacks and play fights, Mom generally licks and nips at the pups. That Mom - always part nurturer. Bet the boy puppies "hate" it. ;)
A pause for some vigilance
And relax. Well, as much as one can with 3 precious puppies
