Welcome Our New Addition
Welcome Ford!! Our little furbaby Pixie had pups but sadly only one made it. She had them yesterday morning before my hubs left for work, and he noticed only one of them was alive. He and I were both really worried about it so I left work a little early and when I got home Ford was laying the grass. He wasn't moving so I thought he was gone too but as soon as I touched him he started whining like crazy lol.
He is a strong willed creature for sure!!! Pixie won't have anything to do with him. We aren't sure if it's because she knows he sick (and we don't) or because she is just too young. This was the first time she went into heat.
We were going to get her fixed but we didn't think she was old enough to go into heat (7 months!). Anyway we are going to keep this little one!!! My hubby named him of course (he loves Fords) and we have been bottle feeding him and doing all that you have to do. I spent all day yesterday doing this:
He wants/needs to eat every hour. So by the time I get the bottle sterilized he's hungry again. Poor baby. My hubby is off from work today and then we are both off on Sunday and I don't work on Mondays. So Tuesday HUSBAND is taking Ford to work with him to feed him on his breaks so he doesn't get hungry. He loves to lay on my chest again the cushions as Eli calls them LOL. So if anyone has any tips on hand raising puppies I love it!!
