Christmas 2010




Many thanks to Tarryn who bought all the little dogs a huge big Christmas stocking of doggy goodies, and a lovely snuggly doggy house in a gorgeous pink (who wants to sleep in it? Nikki (a male!!) The little dogs who are spending Christmas with us (their mummies and daddies having a few days holiday!) were very wary of the pretty paper and goodies!!

Squeak


Squeak will possibly never be available for adoption, as we are very doubtful she will live.

The only reason she is being listed here is to show the public some of the problems the well known registered breeders experience with trying to breed with these little dogs!

So many of the puppies die before they are eight weeks of age - they "fade". Why? No one knows.

This little girl is "fading" and we are trying desperately to keep her alive! Yes she is tiny - just five weeks old and weighs less than 200 grams - what you would erroneously describe as a "teacup". At the moment we are feeding her with an eye dropper every hour to supplement her mummy's milk. We need your prayers for Squeak!

Thank you to everyone who offered prayers and support for little Squeak. Unfortunately, this darling little "fighter" lost her battle at 9.30 am this morning 16th December at age 5 weeks.

Despite the fact she had hydroencyphalitus (sorry about the spelling!) and her lungs were filled with fluid. We thought the antibiotics would help but no. And her little strong heart was not enough to pull her through. Now we are trying to comfort her little mummy who now has to contend with milk fever etc. plus the loss of her little baby. It was interesting to see that little Mummy knew - the last couple of hours she kept trying to sit on little Squeak!
