"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Am I right? (Grammar related/ Sit Vs. Set)

'The mother dog carefully carried her puppies to her new bed and set/sat them down on the blanket.'

Isn't this the rare exception of the verb Sit being transitive?! There is an object which are the Puppies, right? My answer were consider wrong, that's why I had to ask. Thanks in advanced.

    You could use either sat (as it they were sitting) or set as it put here. Both are correct though if the puppies were just being put there, maybe set would be more accurate.
