9 Puppies have arrived

Yesterday I got a call from my dog warden. He said they just picked up a mom dog and 9, 3 week old puppies. He doesn't want to take them to the pound because he doesn't want them getting sick. Can I help.

It just so happens my dog stall is empty because I was able to get so many adopted last week and Jingles went to a foster home. So much for having 2 days without dogs to take care of.

They aren't officially mine until Saturday but I am sure no one is looking for this dog and her puppies. She has clearly been living on the streets for some time. She is VERY skinny, older and this isn't her first litter :-(

On top of 9 puppies and a mom dog taking up the entire dog stall, I have 4 JRT's coming today and there are 2 I am supposed to be getting from Gloria this weekend. Oh and I have a dog being dropped off on Saturday. So, this is going to be interesting. 7 dogs I have to find a place for PLUS Cody who is currently at the vet clinic. At least Margaret is going to take Minnie.

OMG now that I just wrote this all out, I am freaking. By the time these puppies are ready to go to homes it will be 2 weeks before my wedding... LOL!!

So, here are the puppies and mom.

You forgot to mention the part about thinking that we only had eight until we wormed them all, counting nine.

SEVEN girls! I'm still not over that. That is a possible 40,000 that aren't going to be born now. I think it's a great accomplishment.

Ok, I'm totally going to play with them after work today. I LOVE PUPPIES! :)

Thank GOD you are there to help these defenseless animals Amy. Just look at the look on the Mother's face, ears down, she looks desperate and scared. I am so glad that you took these guys in so they will know a caring touch and loving soul.
