If the webcam image is black then the puppies are sleeping and the lights are low, the image is not updated between 23:00 and 08:00 (GMT).

If there are no puppies visible they may be out for a run and food or maybe being cuddled and watching telly with the humans - they will be back shortly.
There are some videos of the puppies here
Apologies to all those who couldn't view us on New Years Day - we decided to get a bit of privacy by chewing through the PuppyCam lead
