Saturday I found two chow puppies under the little house I'm building on a hill 'way back in the woods. Called around and found out they were part of a litter belonging to a neighbor just less than a mile away. The puppies were 5 or 6 weeks old, and the rest of the litter was home with mamma. To the owner's knowledge, no one had taken the puppies. Would puppies this age actually travel that far from home on their own? Why? They would have passed plenty of "better" places to stop on the way--other homes and sheltered spots--my place is on top of a steep hill. Would mamma bring them to my cabin? Why? Would daddy dog bring them? (again, why?) The daddy chow has been hanging around for several days, but I thought only the mammas had anything to do with the puppies once they were born. It may forever remain a mystery, but I'm very curious!
