playtime, pulling the blankets out of her kennel
Chachi and Duncan won't play with her
her brother Jazz, and anything she can chew
she is currently eating a mix of puppy kibble and soft puppy food
in the backyard, she is learning to romp around, and follows the other dogs whether they like it or not!
play growling when you rub her backward
Ya-Ya is an orphan I'm currently fostering through the Humane Society where I work.
Someone called to say they had one orphan puppy that was only 2 weeks old. All the staff was looking at each other asking, "can you foster a bottle baby?" ..Cute as they are, no one was really jumping at the chance - orphan puppies are a lot of work between nighttime feedings, all the cleaning and everything else! The caller was on hold as we were trying to find a foster home. Finally someone asked, "what kind is it"? The receptionist asked the caller and came back with the answer: american eskimo. Well, as everyone knows at my work, I'm a sucker for white dogs, so I agreed to foster the pup.
The caller arrived with the puppy and explained that the mother dog had died, all the other puppies had died, and (oddly) an adult sister of the mom dog had also died at the same time. She said she couldn't take any of them to the vet because of the holidays and all the vets were closed...(of course the emergency vet clinic is open 24/7/365, so whatever....)
Anyway, so there was just one surviving puppy, and she didn't look good. She was cold, undernourished, and absolutely crawling with fleas, very visible with her thin white fur. All the other staff looked at her and said, "she is probably not going to make it."
Fortunately though, Ya-Ya is a fighter. After a scary first 24 hours or so, she improved immensely and got strong. She's now thriving and growing fast!
I survived 'cause I've got ATTITUDE!
