Subject: S.O.S NEED PUPPY FORMULA, A.S.A.P.

Margret got an early morning call from her friend Lislo in Miami to get there as soon as possible, she got a call from Miami A.C., that they had taken Bouvier pups from a puppy mill in Miami, we think it is the same breeder that our Zac came from! The mother died, and the father, also a pure bred Bouvier is in foster care, but they needed someone to bottle feed the babies. Margret got some prepared formula, plus fresh goat milk, but said someone-- maybe Mary Kasher-- had a good home made baby formula. Would somebody please help, and send formulas to me privately. They are only two days old, two boys, and one girl! I get to puppy sit to feed them on Monday, when Margret is working! HELP!!!

Subject: The Best Formula

Well today we have great news, Margret called to give me an update on the three puppies, three days old today: Margret's friend Lori who is an Australian Shepard breeder had a Mom who delivered 7 blue merhl (sp?) puppies last night, and GUESS what, she has TEN puppies today! Margret said it was the cutest thing you ever saw--the Bouvies are HUGE & BLACK compared to the newbie Aussies! She and Lori took pictures. and they will be available on Monday. Margret's computer is still down! So for the next few days, the three Bouvsters have an Aussie Momma who is taking wonderful care of them! Isn't Mother Nature GRAND!!!!!!!!!

Subject: Missy, Honorary Bouvier Mom

I just spoke to Margret, and she said the three Bouvier puppies are doing very well, and "gaining weight like crazy!" Margret nursed them through their first night without Mom, but said, they would never have made it without Mother's milk! Thank goodness for Margret's friend Lori, who is the epitome of what a good breeder should be, and for her very generous Aussie Mom, Missy who has taken in the three Bouvs pups as her own! Margret has been giving the babies, liquid supplements besides, that Lori recommended, so they have a very good chance! Missy is VERY proud of her three "especially" large puppies, who are now well over a pound and a half each! Margret and Lori were feeling giddy from being over- tired from caring from their babies, and had a long discussion of what an Aussie- Bouv would look like, a big cobby bodied dog, with party colors and blue eyes???? Whatever, they would be great herders, with generous hearts! So our three little ones are doing well at this point, and Missy has accommodations for all ten!

Subject: Bouvlets are One Week Old

Well, tomorrow our three little furball, bundles of joy will be a week old! This morning Margret and I went over to see Missy and her 10 puppies. Lori has a wonderful set-up, the pups are in an x-pen in the living room, she has a hard plastic children's pool, with lots of soft blankets in the middle for Missy and the pups. Our three, as well as the seven Aussie pups are all healthy and beautiful, and Missy was a protective Mom, watching us--intruders-- pick up her three large black puppies! It's kind of like that OLD Disney Movie, "The Ugly Dashound", you remember the dog was actually a Great Dane, wonder if our Bouv pups will grow up thinking they are Australian Shepherds????

Subject: Our Three Bouv Babes are Two Weeks Old

Good news-- our three Bouv babies are doing great! They opened their eyes today, and had a full check from their vet, Dr. Eric, who cannot believe how well they are doing and what a good Mom, Missy, the Aussie is doing with her ten babies. Lori told Margret, Missy seems to have taken more interest in our three Bouvie babies than her own, Aussie pups, they are now twice the size of the Aussies. Their weights are about 26 oz. for the boys, and the little princess weighs, 24 oz. Now, all three pups have been promised to very good homes, two referred to us by Marcia Proud, ABRL (thanks Marcia). All the prospective families have recently lost their Bouviers, so these are truly little miracle pups, I hope they give and receive MUCH happiness! Nothing better than a Bouvier pup to mend a broken heart!!!!!
