Wow! Now that the whelping box is in the kitchen, MUNI is really the center of attention.

All of the adult girls feel the need to wander into the whelping box and either clean, lick, and guard or else simply greet and sniff.

The configurations change, but the quarters are close and there is lots of intrapack contact. Good canine socialization for MUNI!

The day was a lovely sunny October San Francisco day. Without getting agreement from Geoffrey, I decided that when the girls went out to sun themselves in the afternoon, all of the girls would go out!

MUNI on the bricks!

MUNI was not a fan of the coolish bricks, and Zenith was not a fan of exposing her girl to the world. I understood both their points.

I hovered over MUNI, making sure no wandering predator would even see her, and I blew on her head to add some warmth. MUNI appreciated the attention and was able to feign composure for a few seconds.

After the successful exposure to new stimuli I had hoped that MUNI would dive into solid food.

Naw!  You can lead a puppy to gruel, but you cannot make her eat!
