They left Sasha to watch the pups, I mean, they trust her... or they didn't realize

I think Sasha will never want pups now. She should stick with poppies.

And I've had the human version of this, that will not shut them up at all.

Someone is clearly not ready for parenthood.

I love when King tries to do the human thing and be mature. Reality comes down like a ton of bricks.
King: We're all adults here.
Bailey: What was that?
King: Yeah, I knew as soon as I opened my mouth.

Now Bailey can take care of the kids while King and Sasha have a (long overdue) heart to heart, I'm assuming on the doorstep to finally clear the air. Then for kicks and giggles Kevins stops by to check on them and Sasha is like "I don't want kids."

To answer to Sasha's question: you can't. You just try to survive until they eventually run out of energy.

It was night before! Did King actually stay under Bailey's hoody for a few hours?

There was a good reason that Sasha wasn't one of the options for a babysitter back during the Save the Date arc

On the bright side now Sasha will be too exhausted to try any more lovey dovey stuff with King. Possibly with anyone. Ever again. Especially if it leads to those.

Sometimes there are few words,
no matter how much they’re needed
but the actual power of words
is choosing the ones that’re heeded.
The pair return to the house
to encounter what they left behind
and what do they discover?
Sasha’s been trying to be kind.
The pups have kept her busy
as their mom counselled their dad.
Having Auntie Sasha as sitter
is the best chance for play they’ve had.

On a side note, there's a certain irony to appreciate in Sasha having to deal with something even more high maintenance than she is.

How do you calm down a hyperactive dog?
Throw an even more hyperactive dog at him :lol:
Yeah, I guess in this case reality ensues if you never had contact with kids you won't suddenly be a cool aunt or anything more being someone who has slight problems with them.
But in hindsight it still is funny, because of this :lol:

I was about to mention Ace's one pink toe. She's actually had it from her introduction. Guess she gets it from King, since King has pink feet and Bailey had black. Kinda like a birthmark, I guess.

I know i joked about Sashs pups in the past, but this is a dog who was treated badly and has a bad education. Prooobably would take alot of learning at this point.

Unless her and Kevin are going to raise poppies? x3

Sasha looks like she doesn't want King's—or anyone else's—puppies anymore.

I really do think that this is yet another thing that is connected with Sasha's poor upbringing, even for a dog brought up more like a pet. It's clear she needs to be re-educated.

But King looks like he's about to blow up here.

Maybe he's about to put Bailey's advice into practice and become a little "Nipper". Poor Sasha - even her maternal instincts are a bit askew.

Why do I feel like Sasha wouldn't be a good mother? Right, this is why. Hey, she can learn, though!

That's the problem with pups--
Sasha, they don't have an off setting
When they've yet to have sups,
Look how wild they're getting!

Follow Bailey's advice, nip her, just try it,
Be a dog, not a human in the suit,
Here's why, King, advice tidbit--
Time to give Sasha the boot.
You're a wonderful person! You can do this! Yes, you, person reading this!

Sasha playing the piano did put a pretty picture that she was more talented than we're lead to believe, but it seems it was wishful thinking that it would mean she was talented at puppies.

then Rick does something to throw us off again x3

Yeah, I thought she’d have some secret amazing parenting/babysitting skills. Oh well. My guess is that her piano skills will in fact come into play in the future as she seeks constructive outlets for her issues, either on her own or as coached by a therapist that the ECP has her go to see.

I agree again with Bailey, use canine manners can work between you, after all. :) Ok King, I agree also with your vision of that and use words, but Sasha isn't so much adult in her head... ;) Eheh, silly Sasha, it's you who started to cry and so they followed. :D Now that question makes me wonder if you still want puppies from someone. :P And put the puppies down, don't keep and lift them in that way. :|

So I guess we can strike Sasha being a mother or feeling motherly and falling in love with any pups she might have off the list then right? The way she is holding them does not seem like anybody who is motherly would do. Maybe sometime in the future perhaps. :?

Isn't it the middle of the night? Motherly instincts or no, everyone will reach the point of "I want them to be quiet and I have no power to do so" eventually, especially at that time.

Looks like sunset. And there are moms out there that can deal with it! Just Bailey seems to know how to avoid waking them up in the first place.

It's just everyone else she has to watch out for =P

All hope isn't lost for Sasha. Some people who are ambivalent about having kids of their own get a pet dog instead.

No, wait. That won't work either.

I didn't learn how to read an analog clock until I was in 9th grade so if my parents couldn't, then Sasha would have NO chance at being successful at that.
