A blog told in photos.
First, there was a very fat momma…
who had a very hard time with the delivery.
after eight puppies and several days of supplemental feedings,
she felt better. And the babies were better, too.
We kept them in a kiddie pool.
Until one day several found their way out.
We changed the pen to a bench and a board.
A kind neighbor lent us the perfect corral.
They couldn’t climb out BUT momma couldn’t climb in…it was time to regulate nursing and introduce puppy food!
When the weather (finally) warmed up, we moved them to a pen on the porch.
Our first pick-up was Luna.
And we had FIVE.
Blossom was next to be picked up.
Blossom has a special story–because of the emergency c-section her momma needed, the vet called in extra staff. This little doll was cleaned up and stimulated by a vet tech who fell instantly in love.
Then we had FOUR.
…..were both adopted by the same family!
And then there were NONE.
It has been a stressful, exciting, delightful, challenging, and poopy eight weeks.
I can’t believe it’s over! I can’t believe they are all gone!
I’m very happy to say they ALL have wonderful new homes.
I’m also quite happy to say I am never doing this again.
I hope you have enjoyed this puppy adventure. 😀
