Thread: New Foster Pup: Holly Trinity!

  1. #1

    New Foster Pup: Holly Trinity!

    I really really needed something good to happen this week after all of the kitty drama, and something good DID happen! (Well, sort of)

    This little dear is a German Shepherd puppy who was born this afternoon and whose father chewed off part of her hind leg. Luckily, she got to the vet within an hour of the event, and she's all stitched up. My sister in law is technically her foster mama, but we're going to be splitting up feeding...mostly I'll be feeding her during the day and my sister will do the overnights. (YAAY!)

    Unfortunately, Holly was in a lot of pain this evening, so she hasn't had a full meal yet. Her pain meds are making her sleeps, so she's making do with a few mouthfuls here and there. We got some colostrum substitute in her though, and after her last dose of pain meds she seems MUCH more relaxed. Right now I'm keeping an eye on her while my sister in law is getting a cup of hot chocolate and relaxing for a bit!

    Anyways, here is the princess! I already have a lead on a GREAT home for her if she makes it.

    Oh my goodness! Welcome to the world, tiny puppy Holly! Look at how small she is! I can't wait till Chocolate Puppy, the GSD enthusiast, sees these pictures! Holly, I will say BIG prayers for you and your foster people and pray that you will grow up healthy and strong, able to be an adorable puppy and then a gorgeous GSD lady!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    What sort of idiot allows the father near a newborn pup?

    She is a beauty, prayers she recovers and feels better quickly. Little ones need to eat and grow!
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    That's what I wondered...apparently the owners has mis-estimated the due date and were not expecting puppies for another week. Typical BYB nonsense, but I'm glad she got to the vet at least!

    Apparently she was finally able to get some sleep once she found a sleeping position that kept her stump off of the blanket!

    Oh, she's darling! Prayers that she makes it and grows up healthy and strong.

    I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).

    Poor little thing--what a terrible way to start its life--having its leg chewed on. The good part is that she has you and your sis taking care of her. She's so cute and little and helpless. Good for you for helping her. Hope she recovers and eventually has a good loving home; she deserves one after her start in life.

    Aah, poor Holly succumbed to sepsis and passed away in my sister's hands. RIP darling. I hope she gets to come back and get a better owner next time...

    Oh no, poor baby.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!
