I may have asked a similar question before so apologies if I have. How do you keep a nearly 7 month old minpoo busy while you are doing household chores? Winnie follows me about from room to room watching me dust, clean, vacuum etc and I feel she is looking at me with those 'mum hurry up I want to play' eyes. Before I start my chores I play a bit with her eg fetch, tug, flirt pole. I put some treats in a puzzle for her to sniff out but this doesn't last long. If the puzzle is too difficult she loses interest. I try and ignore her and carry on with what I have to do in the hope that she will go to her toy box but she doesn't. Sometimes if she is tired from playing she follows me around in the hope that I am going to sit down and then she can lie next to me. She does go to her own bed or lies on the carpet sometimes but will prefer to lie next to me on the armchair if she can. Should I just let her follow me around while I work and will she just manage herself as she gets older?
