Tuesday night Adrian set up the 2nd stage whelping box for the babies. We actually have two kiddy pools, one with the foam noodles glued to the inside to protect the babies from getting squished by their mom and one without the noodles, that has a section cut out. By using this second whelping box we are able to attach a wire crate with a dog litter-box to the backside, giving the puppies a place to go to the bathroom outside of their sleeping space. Within 24hrs we have witnessed every puppy using it at one time or another. They are very quick to learn this when they are young and makes housebreaking much easier when they go to their new homes. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to photograph it until tonight.
