The Things I Do For My Dog
My dog just had puppies or baby just a pup (she's a small dog--Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix). I told my hubby it would be this week so lets confine her to one spot, which he insisted she had a month to go. Men. Blah. LOL
Well, she kept nudging me and following me because she wanted to show me and she would not give up. She was determined to show me her baby/babies (Hubby said he saw only one and it was about 3-4 inches long). So, I finally gave in and crawled under that nasty porch (although it's clean) and through the mud to see her pup(s), even though I was petrified because of all the cobwebs and creepy crawlies underneath. I never thought I feared insects before but now I do some. Ewwwww....it was not a fun evening. :( I am NEVER doing that again (at least I hope I do not have to).
I think there is only one. I had hubby crawl under there first, but that did not satisfy Saedee (the mother). Noooo, she wanted me. She's a stinker. I thought about Sasha if it's a girl and Solomon for a boy.
He said the pup is about 3-4 inches long and is so small with teeny legs. We have a mini Dachshund, which is the father. So, I suppose we now have a Pomcheenie? Haha! It's sounds so silly. We have a long-haired little sausage underneath the house now.
I had to bottle feed her for two weeks and then slowly transitioned her into diluted wet food. Unfortunately, all her other siblings did not make it. They were adopted by my former co-workers. I've had experience with rescues before because we grew up taking in strays and unwanted animals from the humane society and vet offices).
I want to start an animal rescue and rehabilitation site someday. Maybe I should take some vet classes? Hmm...
I love all animals (though I am a bit petrified of bats)!
