Take a good look at this photo.
Now I bet the first thing you noticed was cute puppies and you all went “aahh”, but what I really want you to see is the mesh the cute puppies are poking their heads through.
See, this mesh forms a cage called the bitch’s box, designed so that when a girl dog is on heat, you put her in here and she is safe from horny males. Because we already have nine canines and really don’t need any more puppies.
Are you still looking at the size of that mesh?
Well four months ago we put Manu in this cage. And two months ago these three were born.
Considering Manu was not let out, and now having a very good look at the mesh, I will leave it up to your imagination as to how the logistics of this exercise panned out.
P.S All puppies have since gone to good homes so our tally remains at nine.
And some days that is nine too many.
