I've known for a while, but now I've decided to post this. Abby, the little chi my daughter's friend let her rescue, is pregnant. When I got her I was worried that she may be from statements the girl made to Quisha and now we find out she is. As near as the vet and I can tell, she will be having puppies first or second week of Feb. *sigh* I've been trying to get ahold of the friend to see if she knows the breed of the dog that got her pregnant, but she isn't answering. I did see two male unneutered chis walking down the street in the few minutes I was sitting in the car, waiting to get Abby. Poor girl. At least after this litter she will be spayed and this won't happen again. This will be her second litter. Makes me so mad when people don't take care of their animals and don't get them fixed.

Dear lord...

Well they couldn't have found a better place to start life and I look forward to the pics..You know it's funny I know this isn't a good thing but because she is with you I am a little bit excited.... it feels good for once to be looking forward to puppies being born instead of afraid for the lives the puppies will have.

Well, thank you. This is just the second litter I will have ever been around, I am a little (very) nervous. Marmalade came to me pregnant, I was told she had three weeks left until birth and she had the pups less than two days after I brought her home, in the middle of the night, on the side of my bed in a pile of clothes. Oops. At least with Abby, she's been to the vet, I have a whelping box set up which she has access to at all times as we have no idea when she is going to have them, she's on good food, and I kinda know what I'm doing.

Good luck! I hope everything goes smoothly. Are you keeping the puppies or rehoming them once they are old enough?

I will be rehoming them as I did with Marmalade's. I rehomed them after their second puppy shot and with a neuter contract and both new owners sent me confirmation when they were neutered. So we will do it that way again.

lol A puppy shower, what a cute idea. Thank you for the offer. Blankets and toys would be awesome. I know my real young puppies loved snuggling with a stuffed toy. Marmalade's puppies both left here with their shot record, a bag of food and a stuffed toy that had their mom's and my scent on it.

I am going to contact BOTH Petco and Petsmart and suggest that they offer a registry!

PM me as well. I may have your info but am not certain.

Its called Pam's Chihuahua Sanctuary. I chose the name sanctuary instead of rescue as so many of the dogs are lifers. I looked into becoming a non-profit, they said I needed three executives to sit on the board, I don't know three people. And I would need a financial plan. I don't do or understand numbers, I have dyslexia and dyscalculia, so its very hard for me. The by-laws I probably could whip up.

I really don't know what to ask for other than blankets and stuffed toys. I will have to go get a thermometer, iodine swabs, Nutracal and a hot water bottle, the rest of the stuff I have. Maybe some puppy milk to mix in with the kibble when they are weaned?
