Someone at work sent out an email that said "Free Puppies". Ugh. I usually dont look at the mass emails that are sent out. There are several rescue groups at work and its usually asking you to take a dog. I have 5 dogs and just dont think I can handle anymore. But I opened the email and there was a picture. They looked like sheltie puppies. The lady said she had rescued them from the woods, they were 5 weeks old and she didnt have money for the vet care. When she called a local rescue group they wanted $65 dollars for each puppy she turned in. There are 7 puppies. She couldnt afford that either. So I sent an email to the person ahead of Sheltie rescue here and asked if she had any advice for this lady. Well after lots of talking back and forth, it turns out they are beagel -sheltie mixes. Sheltie rescue would take all the puppies and they lady agreed to turn them over. So now feeling like I been involved in pushing all this through, I felt like I needed to continue to help. I met the lady at the vet yesterday. There is a runt of the litter who was 1.5 lbs but all the others were 3 lbs. The runt was also dehydrated. They all have worms. YuK!!! So someone else in the rescue took the runt and anther puppy. I took 5 home. Wow , what a lot of work. Now Im feeling bad about saying I would do this. Im feeling really old and tired this morning. Every time the puppies cry or squeak but dogs bark like crazy. Sleep was not good last night.
I washed all the puppies last night because they smelled bad. The only thing was, I washed off the numbers the vet had written on their legs to tell who was who. Oops. I hope that was just for yesterdays vet check.
Here is a picture when they were clean. They are now dirty again from getting food all over each other when eating. But here is a picture when they were clean.
Miley is a little freaked out but is getting better. She was standing outside on the deck last night and didnt want to come in. She did it again this morning but now she came in on her own. But now the puppies arent screaming so that maybe why.
I worked Miley and Java with some friends on Wednesday. Miley was awesome. I didnt realize it until I got in the car that I didnt have to throw the bait bag once for stress. We did drop a few bars but I found out if I keep my mouth shut, she keeps the bars up. LOL.
This video is of Miley and Java playing before we started and I was there alone. Its probably boring to you but you know how it is when your own dogs do things. Its cute to me. LOL
