The puppies had their world taken away….the whelping box is gone and they are now in crates.  They ate puppy chow soaked in water today and did not make a mess which, was nice; they did however, manage to get themselves covered head to toe with water.  Tim and I then proceeded to dump them outside to go potty; yes, it was cold but it needs to be done.  They survived.  The potty training process has begun and will continue until they are all sold.  It takes a lot of work but it is worth it.
