It's been raining a lot in the morning so Princess Eva couldn't really play in the garden at all. It was a bit boring to be in the playpen for so long and she started complaining...
Never mind, we played 'Flip' (from Katie and Louie the Newfie's blog) a lot until both of us were really tired. Little Eva loves 'Flip' because she can rest comfortably on my laps and she enjoys the belly rub. She's such a spoilt pup!!! I gave her grooming too and it wasn't a success, I guess it's because I don't know how to tell her to stand still and let me do the job probably. I did say 'NO' with firm tone a couple of times but I think she thought I was playing with her. She kept on wriggling and trying to play with me. Help!!! Any suggestions???
About an hour later, I suddenly heard a tiny sharp 'HOWLING' like a little wolf cub from my kitchen. Little Eva was up again. Sadly, we couldn't go out at all as it's still raining outside. At last, we started doing things with sounds. As the playpen is in the kitchen which makes my life so much easier; I just took up the metal utensils and started banging them lightly with each other. Little Eva was a bit shocked in the beginning as the noises definitely didn't sound very soothing but after a few minutes, she started to sniff at them, chew them and even tried to make the noise by pushing the metal bowl and spoons. It was pretty fun to play with her but I was so exhausted after that.
Not much was done today but I think we achieved something called 'puppy socialization'!
