We got a new dog. A while ago. JT found a 2 year-old purebreed german shepherd that he fell in love with her. She's 100% an outdoor dog and so the 3 of us are happy with the situation. That is, we WERE...
Meet Liberty's puppies!
Our neighbor Diana is super smart about dogs and came over to walk us through the preparations. JT went outside to bring Liberty in to prepare a "nest" for her. He came sprinting back to the house to tell us she had already had her puppies! ALL THIRTEEN OF THEM.
From that point on, things have been pretty touch and go. Liberty is HIGH anxiety and keeps thinking her puppies are in danger. She doesn't lay down long enough for her babies to eat or to even keep them warm. It's so sad because all she wants to do is to protect them but she's being her own worst enemy. We finally were able to lock her in the bathtub with them and she sometimes calms down now....but only sometimes.
