By this morning I knew I had to go get the emaciated mama and 8 puppies. I did pray about it and with Rick’s help we put insulation board on the floor and hung a heat lamp with a thermostat over a small pool. We covered the insulation with tarps and then put those old Goat Gazettes to work on top of the tarp.
Here is the original picture I saw.
God knows what that man did to this poor dog and I have turned over that punishment to Him. There are 8 puppies – all fat and roly poly – at mom’s expense.
The puppies are already eating gruel to supplement their nursing and as the shelter informed me – the more food they eat, the more they poop as compared to nursing. Oh, great! I have put out a plea for newspapers.
When I picked up the puppies I was told they hadn’t eaten their evening meal so as soon as I got them all moved into the kennel I hauled the huge bag of food and the case of canned food and the puppy milk replacer into the house. Got out my brand new blender – I think I remember telling you my original blender had lasted for 49 years! Put everything in the blender and it wouldn’t work! I poured it all into my mixer – that didn’t chop it up enough so I actually poured it into that OLD blender that doesn’t have a lid. I held a plastic lid on top and turned it on – gruel all over the pantry! Good grief! I continued and got it mixed and fed the puppies. Had Rick look at the blender – oh, there’s a safety feature! After you sit the blender jar into the base, you have to turn it slightly. I had used this blender only once when I made Orange Julius for the kids and I must have just had dumb luck because it worked.
So now it’s after 9 and I have checked on everybody – they are too hot! I removed the pool and raised the heat lamp. Turned the thermostat down to 70. Tomorrow we’ll go outside.
So I have no quilting progress to show you tonight. There are some Dirty Dozen projects tho’ which I’m always so glad to get in my email.
That’s all, folks! I’ll keep you posted.
