Trex the papa dog helps care for his son while Nala the mama just relaxes besides us. Many people claim the male dog usually doesn’t take any interest in their young but I can tell you for a fact that my dog Trex isn’t only interested in his pups but he worries about them too. If Nala is out on a bathroom break and one of their five pups start crying he will run in and cuddle with the pup while grooming it until it quiets down. If I take a pup from its kennel and place it two feet away Trex will carry the pup in his mouth and put it right back. Nala on the other hand is a first time mom and she’s very relaxed about Trex being near her pups now.
So my dog Nala still sneaks away from her pups to come hang out with me. I’ve taken her back into the room countless times but once her puppies have been fed she comes right back out. I’ve contemplated whether or not I should close her in to keep her with her puppies but the kennel only fits her and her pups no room for food or water. I wonder if she trust that her puppies are safe causing her to be so relaxed about leaving them alone.
The other problem is Snoozie who still rather sleep than eat. I have been bottle feeding him and he has been growing stronger but even while being bottle fed he’d fall asleep and stop nursing. I have to wake him up to continue feeding and this routine continues for an hour before he finishes the bottle. A vet did check him out and she has assured me there is no medical issue to be concerned about. I have both been bottle feeding him while also letting him nurse alone with his mom, nala. I hope he will start eating more in his own and catch up to his siblings who are twice his size.
Snoozie nalas second born pup spends more time sleeping than he does eating. I took him in for a check up the vet said they can’t find anything wrong but suggest I give him one on one time with his mom so he can eat. They think his is siblings out compete him for milk so here’s day one. If he continues to sleep rather than eat I will have to hand him over to the vet so that they can save his tiny life. Please keep this lil one in your prayers.

My dog finally went into labor around four a.m. the last puppy was born around eight a.m. almost nine. I watched her give birth while being sick because this is her first litter in the four years I’ve had her. This will also be her last. She had a total of five puppies three girls and two boys.

I recently seen a video about certain cities in some states passing a ban on the pit bull or pit bull type breed. This video is titled “beyond the myth”. Any dog that resembled the bully breed were taken away from their owners and put down. This began in the late 90’s and continues today in some states.
I just wanted to say that the people who support this unjustified slaughter of innocent dogs are no different than Hitler. You have gathered up this beautiful breed, confined them, and killed them by the thousands just because of your prejudices towards them. You people should be ashamed of being born human.
This is nala my big ogre. When she was a few months old she caught the parvo virus immediately after being vaccinated. At the time I had no job or money to get her treated at the vets so I spent 3 weeks helping her fight for her life. In return I have gained another loyal companion.
The only dog I have that loves to roll around in cat poop. Had to give her a bath twice in one day.

This is mocha she is about six years old. She has no teeth due to gum disease. I didn’t know dogs needed to have their teeth brushed. Despite not having teeth she’s got a clean bill of health now and doesn’t mind her diet of canned foods and the occasional soggy dog food.

My son Trex loves helping me weed the little garden that was already here when we moved in. He only pulls out the weeds and leaves the herbs and veggies untouched.
