I'm A Mom Again!


I have two new babies - just in time for Mother's Day!

These sweet little girls were rescued today from a shelter in Columbia, along with their mother. I was volunteering at a pet expo today for the MOKAN border collie rescue organization - they had helped us try to find a home for Griff - when I was asked if we could foster 2 pups who were being brought into town. I called Mr. C and by the time I got home, he had the Puppy Palace set back up.

They are 4 months old, and were living with their mother in a backyard. They were not in good condition and I am guessing that's why they ended up in the shelter. They are scared, dirty, covered in (hopefully) dead ticks and not very well socialized. They don't even have names. But they are also very sweet and like being held and petted so we'll have them in shape for adoption in no time. We brought them home, gave them a little food and water, and got them settled in for the night. They started carrying on when we first turned off the lights but settled down as soon as we put a radio on for them. My first job is to get them named, followed by a good night's sleep so I am up and ready to start another session of puppy school in the morning.

They are thought to be border collie/shepherd mix - you can see the shepherd in the one on the right and the one on the left looks like a border collie. so things will be hopping once again at the House of Wayward Puppies and I'm loving it!

You are lucky to be a new mum just in time for Mother's Day. That is a good sign! The puppies are adorable ... it is great that they like to be held too.

Enjoy being a mum again!

Oh they are just gorgeous! Congrats "mom!"
Have you thought of names yet? If you're up for some suggestions... Lala, Lexi, Cali, Sami and in honor of my current foster, I'll throw in Trixie too! :)

They are adorable. It is truly wonderful that you are fostering them. It makes you wonder what kind of person could actually not give them love.

Hooray for you! Thank goodness for people like you who spend the time and effort to care for lost puppies. The world is a better place.

Btw, that was Layla - not La-La... that would be a horrible doggie name! lol

Hey - I emailed you the shaped scarf pattern yesterday. Did you get it OK?

Criquette said...

Yes I got the pattern today, thanks. I may use this with my new SP10 cotton yarn, making a little larger so I can use it like a wrap. And thanks for the names - I had every one of those on my list (Layla, not Lala. I knew someone named Lala, maybe that explains why she was such a bitch.) I chose their names based on which one they wagged the hardest to.

The new pups are so adorable. Love the pictures of them after their baths. I try to convince my Brits that when they get baths and haircuts, it is their "Special Day of Beauty". They're not buying it!

P.S. Happy belated Mother's Day to you, too!
