My New Foster Puppies

Meet Billy and Dani.

The puppies the day I brought them home.

Puppies the day I brought them home.

They were about 7 weeks old. They looked so alike that I was having a difficult time telling them apart for the first few days. Little black and white balls of fluff that tumbled happily around my kitchen floor, they were easy to love.

It was more difficult to feed them. They had little interest in food because their teeth hadn’t come in enough to be able to handle kibble. I was soaking their kibble to make it softer and mixing in some canned wet food, and still they would sooner do almost anything than eat puppy food. Leaves, grass, dirt, the corners of my wooden planter boxes and each other were all more interesting to chew on.

It turned out that they were not thriving because they had a parasite called Coccidia. Once that was identified and they received appropriate treatment, they began to feel better and show more interest in food. You know I was trying every tempting think I could think of to get them to eat!

I was most definitely taking a shine to them and knowing that little puppies get adopted very quickly, I submitted a adoption request form – just in case.

Fast forward a couple of weeks and I had two fat and sassy puppies. Their personalities were not as originally described. They were bold as brass and ready to explore their new world.

…And I was falling in love.

The Dog Rules

Once the proud guardian of a rather cheeky Border Collie/Aussie Cattle Dog mix, may she forever rest in peace, my favourite activities were those things that included my canine friend. Now I have a new canine buddy in my life. He's also a Border Collie and sassy like my girl was. We're in the middle of an adventure; teaching him how to be a good canine citizen I spend my spare time volunteering at the local animal shelter as a dog walker/trainer. You can read all about it @
