Nina's sweater protest is adorable lol

Are there any pictures of the pups' area? There have been snippets in different pictures but I'd love to know what her pup setup looks like.

Let me dig around.. there is a snippet on her website about how they are raised

"Our puppies are whelped in our spare bedroom. I set up the whelping box and a bed for me in that room at least a week before the puppies are due. The dam gets used to sleeping in the whelping box and has the comfort of me in the room with her. The puppies are born and raised in that room. The hustle and bustle of life happens just outside their door, so they become accustomed to noises and sounds of the household from a very early age.

From day one the puppies experience Early Neurological Stimulation exercises, designed to make them healthier and stronger. They have toys and other surfaces to crawl over and experience. We play a sound CDs for them that includes all sorts of noises to get them accustomed to all sorts of environments.

Once they are old enough (around week 3), they are moved to a big play pen. The play pen allows them room to stretch their legs and play. They are again surrounded by things to climb on and under. They will have crates to curl up in to get them used to that. They will get toys to play with.
They will also begin the process of potty training. By their 3rd week, they will know to go to their potty area to go potty. This creates an easy dog to potty train when they go to their new home.
The puppies are allowed visitors starting at 3 weeks and of course there is always a line up of people to come see them. They enjoy socializing and playing with new people. They are taken outside and get to explore and experience the world. They get to meet our crew starting at 4 weeks, so they learn all about other dogs. By the time they leave they are used to playing with the big dogs. They get outings to our store and new places at week 7.
The puppies start clicker training at 4 weeks old. They learn about the clicker and rewards and we do basic recalls with them for some yummy yogurt. They think that's grand!
At 6.5 weeks, we start crate training, too. The puppies sleep paired up with a littermate in a crate, then eventually are separated into their own crates. This involves some sleepless nights for us, but hopefully makes the transition easier at home.

The puppies are never forcefully weaned from their mother. We allow nature to take it's course as the dam chooses. We believe that a mother's milk is providing the puppies with antibodies and a stronger immune system, so the longer they have that, the better.

Puppies have lots of outings and particularly one on one outings where we see their reaction to new things, places and people without their littermates around. This gives us a solid handle on their strengths and weaknesses in their temperament.

We love the puppies to play with and learn from the older members of their family. We think that is very important for their socialization and learning.

The puppies are checked for parasites at 6 weeks and treated if need be. "


Oh and the site if anyone is interested http://www.oracleaussies.com/

Maybe it's just because we have come to know this litter, but I think this litter is so much cuter than the last one
