An Orphans "Tail"......
On June 25, my CKC, Wendy, gave birth to a beautiful litter of 7 Cavapoo puppies. I was ecstatic!!. Sadly, 2 days later, I noticed Mom was getting lethargic, so I immediately made a trip to my veterinarian. After endless bloodwork, I was faced with rushing Wendy to the Emergency Hospital, and weaning the puppies. I looked at 7 tiny precious lives, and burst into tears. I was overwhelmed with the fear of losing them. Wendy had a ruptured uterus, and her days as a mother was abruptly ended, and I was now the mother of 7 tiny Cavapoos. Through an answered prayer, and the wisdom of a fellow breeder.......... PLUS, feeding 7 hungry babies EVERY 2 hours for 4 weeks.........Me and 7 orphan puppies were VICTORIOUS!!!!!!!
My Journey As A Puppy Mother:
Me and 7 orphan puppies made it to weaning time!!! I'm so proud of my babies, we made it to the next step, eating on our own from a dish.....my heart burst with pride as I
watched them eat eagerly!!
How do I find THE perfect families for these perfect babies?? I meticulously went through dozens of puppy applications, over and over, until I was dizzy. Finally chose the families that I would contact, and again, carefully scrutinize my choices as they visited and picked their puppy. I felt relieved about my choices as I was thinking I had successfully achieved my mission as a puppy mother, and the hardest part was over......WRONG.
The first family was scheduled to pick up their baby, and all of a sudden everything that has happened the last 8 weeks came crashing down, and I felt the undeniable "tug of the golden cord"!!
One by one, the families came and excitedly picked up their babies, and I wept a mothers tear as they disappeared down the lane. Now, as I reflect, I think I had a little help from above. These were the "perfect families", and I have a special place in my heart for each and every one of you. You have touched my life more than you can imagine!!!!
