Pupdates ~ Must be Crazy

Ok. Call me crazy. It's true. You might as well because the only reason why I did what I have done is if I was certifiably crazy. I went last week to one of the high kill Animal Control facilities in Ontario. I made the mistake of going BY MYSELF! That's right ... 

What was I THINKING!?

Why would I have thought that I could do this without doing something stupid?!? IDIOT!!

*headdesk headdesk headdesk*

I went there as a representative for my local (No Kill) Humane Society. I was there for one job only ... to pull 2 - 3 dogs out of there and bring them to our shelter so we could re-home them.

I left with 10.

Now, to be truthful ... of the dogs who went to the shelter, 4 of them are adults and 1 is a 12 week old puppy ...... Have you counted up?? Do you know what that leaves??? Let me give you a hint:

(please disregard the messiness in the background of this picture)

Did you figure it out?? Need another hint??

No, they aren't stuffed animals lined up in a row ... here's your last hint:

If you haven't figured it out yet you should have another coffee. Or maybe something stronger.

I brought a JRT/Beagle home who had 4 puppies. They were 5 days old when I brought them home. The pictures were taken immediately after I brought them home. I had to put them in a crate for the first few hours until I had my husband bring the Ex-Pen in from the barn and disinfect it for me.

Oh ... did I tell you that my husband didn't know that I brought the puppies home?? Truth be told, I didn't know I was going to bring them until I already had them in my truck.

He's a wonderful husband. He didn't divorce me ... he didn't kick me out of the house ... he didn't even yell at me. All he said was "And you thought it would be a good idea for you to go to this facility without me while you were pregnant?? ARE YOU NEW??"

Anyway ... here we go again, eh? See? Told you I was crazy.

On the bright side, the mom is totally housetrained so we aren't having to clean her several times per day. Not having to clean up constantly gives a lot more time to spend doing Early Neurologial Stimulation for the puppies, which is nicer not to rush through.

The puppies will be available for adoption via the Humane Society when they are 8 weeks old. They are 2 weeks old (as of today!).

If you are crazy, it is a GOOD kind of crazy. Our last trip to a high kill shelter for our rescue was for maybe 15 dogs. We brought back 40. I ended up with a new mom A Chi/JRT mix who had 4 babies. What sweeties!!! Dolly is a great mama and she has been taking wonderful care of them. They are now 7 weeks old.
Good Job!!!

Ah ha ha! I'd say your hormones are going crazy, but I would do the same thing heading into a high kill shelter as well.

They are adorable!
