On a lighter note, on June 18th 2013 we welcomed “Duke” into our family ! The SPCA had a ton of puppies and mothers that were from a ladies home that hoarded dogs. It’s incredibly sad. These puppies and mothers had never been outside. The mothers had several litters of puppies and all three were taking turns feeding each of the babies. The mothers took a long time to even come to the front of the crate when they were rescued. I was considering one who was beautiful but extremely shy and scared. I could tell she wanted so badly to be loved and give love in return but due to the trauma she had encountered, a wall of untrust was up. We ended up rescuing one of the pups from the litter of Chihuahua mixes. Below is a picture. I’m happy to say that I believe ALL the puppies got adopted and many of the mothers were on hold for people. I hope these dogs find patient and loving homes that will surround them with support as they become slowly adapted to the world outside.
Currently, I believe Duke is dealing with Kennel Cough.
The SPCA said he had already been treated for it but clearly he needs another round of meds. He has been sneezing his little brown nose off. I warmed up a towel in the dryer and wrapped him in it which he seemed to thoroughly appreciate! Will be bringing him back in tomorrow to be checked. He is 12 weeks old right now 🙂 So now we have Daisy (our long hair Chihuahua) & Duke!!
