Raising puppies....a month and a half old now. and they are still with their momma and daddy. it's totally different having an actual family of dogs than it is to get dogs from someone else and them not be blood related. It's one of the coolest things I think I have ever done in my life. And they are all staying together...not breaking the family up. They are way too happy together. It would be crazy to let any of them go. man! Lovin' the hell outta these puppies.
