Dream Puppies

Hello my wonderful readers.  I hope you are all enjoying the “Puppies to the Rescue” series and I should have the next chapter posted soon.

Like many bloggers I usually finish a project before beginning to post about it but I have a project going on that I want to share in real-time.  That means I write it and post it.  No photo editing and no rewrites, just the words straight from my mind to the keyboard.

So here goes.  Today the foster/adoption coordinator for Marley’s Mutts and I rescued 7 puppies from a local shelter.

If you are regular follower here you might know that raising new-born puppies is a dream of mine that I did not think I was not going to get the chance to live.

These puppies are probably a shepherd/husky mix with the mom being the shepherd.  They were found in an abandoned house with two other feral dogs.


 The mother of these puppies was feral as well and the only chance the puppies had involved separating them from their mother.  She was very protective and very aggressive and would not let the shelter staff come near the puppies.


There is no way for the puppies to become well socialized and comfortable around people much less be adoptable without contact from humans.  It was very sad to see the mom separated from the puppies but it was their only hope.

I will be raising three of these adorable little babies and sharing the experience her on “Three Dogs At Home” and I hope you fill follow along.


It turns out that my husband has the nack for getting the puppies to nurse from the bottle.  So far two of the three are good eaters but the smallest one is a bit unenergetic about eating.  Hopefully tomorrow she will be a bit more interested.

It has been a long day and I am just waiting for the midnight feeding before I attempt to sleep on the couch so I can hear them.

The dogs need names so if you have a suggestion I would love to hear it.

Thank you for reading,

    It’s going to be such an experience. Are they male or female?

      Magali, they are all girls. At one time I had seven female dogs. I think my husband and son felt outnumbered.

      I like Huey, Dewey and Louie but all three of these pups are girls so I came up with Blossom, Petunia and LilyBelle.
      I will save these names for future rescue pups because they are so cute.
