    Well, just to be different. I WANT A BLACK ONE! I felt like they were being neglected. Plus, I grew up with a black german shepherd mix, so I have a soft spot.

    The cowpuppies are ridiculously cute too.

    I sent the link to Fiance. Maybe that will convince him we need to get another dog once we get to Oregon, we were thinking about it anyway. I live for the cowpup

    2 cows!!! When our dog Akita had her 6 puppies, she had 2 cows, and we called them CowBoy and CowGirl.  Cowboy stole my heart because when he was 2 weeks he got a bad case of worms and fell behind in the weight until we got them all dewormed.  Then he was always a little small, and he was my absolute favourite.  He ended up being so good at following and super responsive.  I miss him. 

    Today I am dogless.  My Akita is at the vet recovering from her spay surgery. The puppies were cute but it was the hardest work of my life.  Serabel’s stress is something I can relate to; bad sleep because of always worrying about the puppies.  When they would squeak at night I always thought she was crushing one or that one was getting left out. 

    I definitely second that you should weigh each pup daily and keep a record.  Had I noticed CowBoy’s weight change earlier I may have been able to get him to the vet before he fell as far behind.  Also, do deworm the pups.  Do you know if the Mom is dewormed? 

    Also, if the Mom gets diarhea, give her some pepto bismol.  45 pound dog gets 4.5mL  I wish I had known this.  Our Akita got sick at around the 1 week mark and it was sooo gross because she couldn’t hold it and ended up going diarhea on our floors several times. She came down with it on a Saturday night and vets around here don’t open on Sunday, so we had to wait til Monday. It was a VERY long weekend. 

     

    Thanks so much for sharing your story!  Good luck!

    Aww, I love all the pups.  I have a black dog so I have a soft spot for them but those cowpups are too cute!  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pup with that kind of coloring before, too precious.  Mom looks pretty tired/content, and also very cute. Glad to hear everyone pulled through okay.

    Yay!  Pictures!  They are SOOOO cute, but just wait until their eyes open.  *dreamy sigh*  I love puppy breath!  I wonder if they will have floppy ears or prick ears.  I’m thinking with those cow puppies that those two at least probably are not GSD.  It’s interesting how dogs of all breeds look SOOOO similiar when they are first born.  I can’t wait until they are bigger so we can play Guess the Breed!  lol
