Eva's Fostered Pups

When Eva's puppies were born we were struggling to keep the two girls alive and the tri boy was also weak.  We were lucky there was a Sheltie in the area that had delivered a litter the same day and when I called my friend Diane needing help, she came over and picked up the tri boy and a blue boy and delivered them to Liz and her unsuspecting foster mom "Savanna".
Savanna was out when they were put in the the box with the other two puppies.  When Savanna came in to see her puppies Diane and Liz said she did a double take as suddenly there were twice as many!
Liz supplemented the tri boy for several days and then he started nursing strongly.  He is now larger than the blue boy and almost the same size as his foster sister (sadly one of Savanna's puppies didn't make it).
It is tiring posing for pictures...

Eva's pups Sept 3/11

Eva's pups are doing well.  The four that are here are growing steadily, and have their eyes open and now can hear as well.
The little girl hasn't had an easy start.  A week ago Friday she spent the day at the Vet in critical condition due to an infection and dehydration.  She came home with medicine to give sub-q as well as ringers solution if required.  For several days we weren't sure if she'd make it or not.  Then by Tuesday she started to turn the corner and she hasn't looked back.

She is still being bottle fed, but I think she is double dipping! She doesn't look like a 'bottle baby' in that her coat has good tone and she is really quite plump.  Regardless, she will get her four bottles a day until we start to wean them next week.

The group...there is a big blue boy, the girl has the large patch on the right side as you look at her and then the other blue boy.  The bi-blue is out of focus in front.
