Could Spring be coming?

The last few days have been gorgeous, and we have certainly been taking advantage of it.  We are slowly transitioning Chloe into the backyard for potty and play times.  Until now, we were training her to go on our covered porch, and then we would clean it up.  This was the same method we used for Dexter, and it worked great.  With them being such tiny puppies during the winter, it is too cold to try to get them to go on the ground.  Trying to get a 2-4 pound dog to potty in the snow can result in hypothermia for the dog, so this way was just better for all of us.

But now, Chloe is starting to venture into the yard.  And boy howdy does she love it!

She is doing really well with housetraining, and she even walks up the porch steps by herself now.  She really is growing up.  

She just loves running around outside, but we have to be careful as she is still small enough to wriggle through the neighbor's fence.  But usually Dexter keeps her in line.

We thought spring was coming, but it is snowing by us today! They look like they are having so much fun together! Lily can sneak through the cracks in the fence too. :(
