They'll be healthy and well adjusted because they'll have her other foster dogs to show them the nuances of being a dog. DIL is a saint.
As I reported earlier, the little girl at the top of the photo didn't make it. We just learned the black and white boy at the bottom is blind. He doesn't eat well and is a week behind the brown puppy in learning to eat solid food. He will be harder to find a home for, but we're hoping he'll be OK
The brown girl in the middle is full of energy and growing fast. She is up to almost 5 pounds and looks a lot like a sausage with legs.

I think you said the mother was killing the litter, right? Seems like nature's cruel instinct was at work there.

Yo Bugs...some of the pics I post are of other human's pups....if I see a good pic online I will post it - such as this one......



And in regards to training them to do something in particular.....you have to remember we're dealing with a very unique breed in the Australian Cattle Dog. They can be quite clever at times....

Thanks for all the pics of Sir Henry too!

This is Rowdy (the blind pit bull puppy in post 2515) just before he left today. He started eating yesterday and he is going to a foster home where there are other puppies so he can be socialized.
The last thing I need is another dog, but I am so so tempted to give him a home when he is old enough. I'll have a month to think about it.
People are lining up to get his sister, the brown pup in post 2515. She is going to be a heck of a great dog for someone.

Thanks for the puppy updates, Patrick.

Speaking of updates.....it's been a year now and reading this post from my friend Melissa really put a lump in my throat....well worth sharing here.....

"Today is the one year anniversary of Jake's double enucleation, the surgery to remove both his eyes. Jake had Primary Lens Luxation (PLL) and there was no stopping its progression or the pain he was experiencing. It was an emotional decision to make but the right one. We were fortunate to have the love and support of the Australian Cattle Dog community that welcomed us with open arms when I had a tornado of a puppy on my hands all those years ago. I would be lying if I said Jake plays off being blind so well that no one notices. He's still in bumper car mode, has to be rescued from falling off the front steps and can't find a smelly treat 6 inches in front of his nose. He can chase a noisy ball, herd a remote control car, and go for a hike with a little guidance from a walking stick. He's still one of the best snugglers ever. I personally want to thank the breeders who test their dogs for this horrible eye problem and hope to eradicate it from the breed entirely. One year down, Jake my boy, many more to go on this crazy adventure of life we walk together!"

We went camping last weekend (rv camping) with the blind lab, old poodle/something and a puppy that my girlfriends daughter got recently. This is the two older dogs as we were packing and the pup was driving them a bit crazy :-)



Harley the blind lab is 12 1/2, was adopted 1st of May this year. She's adapted quite well and enjoys life!
