thankyou for all your well wishes she is so stinking cute and we hope that everything continues to go well with her and we will continue to feed her and love her round the clock until she is independant of us.......and we both hope that time wont be too far away as we would really like to both go to bed on the same night lol x

Too cute!

Just a warning there is a different almost special attachment to a dog or cat you have hand reared. I can't explain it but it is special. Good Luck!

Very sweet.

I am currently hand rearing one pup from a litter of 3 as she isnt very well (FPS but fighting it)... she is too weak to have a bottle though.. luckily i have a very very very special friend who is helping as i couldnt do it on my own as we have to feed every hour.

Good Luck.. hope she continues to thrive for you

Thanks... She's got further than anyone thought and is now 200g and is 3 weeks tomorrow. She's half the size of her brothers and still v weak, can't really lift her head but gives it a good try and moves fast. Still tube feeding coz after 1ml out a syringe she gets too tired :( she's definately a fighter. Vet discharged her yesterday after daily appointments fingers crossed

Mad Dog Woman and Kurukulla, both of you ladies are angels.
Keep up the good work and if you get a chance please update
us on how the pups progress. I'm sending lots of positive thoughts your way.
