Playing with the Big Dogs Video
Ginger is such a sweetheart with these puppies, and very helpful, because she helps tire them out, and they tire her out, because she is basically still a puppy herself.

Truffle plays but I suspect even in play she is bringing up her babies.  She will take a toy, and lie down with it, and flop it around so that some sucker puppy comes over and grabs it, and then she will growl at them and make them leave it.  Then she will shake it again, just to see if they will be a sucker twice, and she keeps on until they decide not to take the toy.  She seems to be teaching them to be polite.  Great lesson, and she teaches it with more gusto than we do, and with better results.

My first reaction is that she is rough on them, but it's just normal puppy raising, I'm sure.
