Puppies on the outside 297/365

LizaLiza

A friend and runner I’m coaching has a friend who is a vet who said it’d be fine to take the puppies outside to go to the bathroom.

Game changer!! Oh my gosh, I can’t even tell you how much better my life is now that half of it isn’t taken up cleaning the tiles in Asa’s bedroom and the openings in the dog crate. The ADL folks had said the puppies couldn’t go outside until they were old enough to get all their shots.  Here’s to friends with vet friends who think that that’s crazy talk!

What’s making me happy: (Apart from the decrease in poop cleaning)

Running: 2 hours with 8 x 1 minute pickups and 2 minutes recovery. My foot was not happy with this. My heel ached pretty badly.

    So it’s ok to bring them outside in your yard. The concern is until they are fully vaccinated they could pick up an illness if mingling with other dogs or in areas frequented by many dogs. It’s ok to socialize them with other known vaccinated dogs. I did a TON of reading before we got our now 6 year old lab!
