Dog update

Well the vet came out Friday night after the office closed to check on all the mom's and dad's. I was not about to put them back into a car. He said that Portia (first mom), Lexus (all black one) and Caddie are 1 years old, have never had a litter before and this is probably their 2nd heat. The black and tan older one (Mercedes) he said is only about 4.5 years old. This litter is probably her 2nd, he would be surprised if it was her 3rd.

The dad's Robin is about 7 years old.. not that you would ever know it. Man that dog is happy and full of energy. VERY loving. Batman is about 5 years old. He looks older but my vet said that dogs that live outside tend to age faster b/c they have a hard life and these two dogs have FOR SURE lived outside. The tips of their ears are all melted looking from frost bite :-( Poor things. Batman has a large scare on his nose, probably from getting caught on a fence but could also be from getting into a dog fight. Happy the little yellowish colored one is only about 2 years old. MAN is that dog a cutie! I had a little sweater on him yesterday.. LOL!

So, that is the update on the adults. The babies are doing well and Mercedes had her litter Friday / Saturday. She had 4 but one passed :-( No idea why. He was a big one too. She had a brown one that is a boy first, we named him Chevy. She had the white one 2nd that is a girl and her name is Shelby. Then Saturday early morning she had the black one who is a boy named Viper. If you have noticed we are going with a car theme for all the dogs...



The other puppies we named Astro (for the mini van), Bolt because that is what broke in my friends car, Bentley and Clutch :-)

I still have two litters to go so anyone with good "car" related names please let me know!!

*************************
I can't believe anyone would want to have puppies on purpose. UGH This is a lot of work to keep them clean and I am always worried. ALL I did yesterday was clean up poo and pee and spend time with all the dogs. I am trying to spend enough time with all the dogs boys and girls but man this is hard. LOL! I had to buy knee pads last night because my knees are sore and bruised from crawling in and out of cages.

Everyone keep all paws crossed that all goes well and in 8 weeks everyone will be in a loving FOREVER home. Right now I have 21 dogs in my rescue.... with that number only going to increase because I am getting 2 females from Holmes County and of course we still have 2 litters coming.. LOL Yes, I am crazy... lol
