Mozza, I totally agree with you!!!!!!!


Smkie, the one with the spot on it's head is the runt. I have been trying hard to put her on to feed first, or by herself sometimes.


This momma dog is driving me crazy, sometimes it seems like she likes to nap for long periods while her babies are whining. So, I have been putting the ones on her that are whining or using the warm washcloth trick. I guess she just isn't sure what to do either, I guess we all have to learn!:)

Heads up !!! " THE " book should really help you ...let me know when you get it and post your thoughts here. I raised litters before it came out , but after getting it , really raised litters correctly and helped new owners. Through the testings , my daughters chose pups different from what they thought was their choice. I took off all color coding known by them... so they had no idea who they were testing. The matches were perfect for what they wanted .

My puppies are doing good, although sometimes it seems like the mom is lazy. Some of them will be whining, and I will take them to her to eat but they don't want to eat. So then I will try to get her to lick them, and she just sits there, so I have to use the warm washcloth trick. I guess in a matter of days they should ALL be able to go to the bathroom without help?

That is an awful big litter for poor ol Mom. Bet she is just simply tired out. We had a girl at the kennels too that wasn't cut out for being a mom, some are, some aren't. Great that you are there as a nanny backup.:) ;) WIth that many she needs you! It won't be long and they will be piddling everywhere.:rolleyes: eyes open yet?

Some people choose to support, coddle, and applaud backyard breeders. Others do not.

Some people choose to support, coddle, and applaud irresponsible pet owners. Others do not.

Being one of those people who choose NOT to support, coddle, and applaud irresponsible breeders and pet owners does not make someone mean.

There is a difference between saying something to be intentionally cruel and saying something because someone had to say it and having the truth be unpleasant.

If however being 100% anti-irresponsible breeding and anti-irresponsible pet ownership makes me mean then I would rather be mean than compassionate any day of the week.

There is an ignore feature on the forum. If someone does not like what I have to say then they are free to use it.

I will never coddle or support these kinds of actions.

I would always take a big fatty and let him get the milk moving on a back teat then putting my finger in the side of his mouth to break the suction move him to a higher up teat then stick the bitty babies where the most milk is. I never had any trouble with a mama minding my interferring with her family. Especially since i always came with super goodies:) Nothing like a nursing mama to appriciate a little tlc.;)

Keep your personal issues to PMs please or use the ignore feature please. I know this is a touchy subject for a lot of people but I doubt anyone wants to see this thread get locked.
