I’ve been in the crafty mood so I decided to make a matching color and leash for my fur son. I noticed the regular collars I buy from the pet store gets on his nerves. But for this collar and leash I used fabric. He’s a small dog so no worries that he will easily tear the leash. Everything is hand sewn since I don’t own a sewing machine. I have yet to take him on a walk but will as soon as all this rain goes away.

Meet snoozie the puppy that got a second chance at life. At one month old he was barely eating and always sleeping. As his litter mates continued to grow he stayed small. A vet checked him out and informed me he has difficulty suckling because he has an under bite. It was a struggle everyday to get him to drink enough milk every 2 to 3 hours because he was so weak on top of having an under bite. At about 2 and a half months old he was weaned off milk and started on canned foods. That’s when he started to gain weight and made a complete one eighty. He is now a healthy and happy four month old puppy who acts exactly like his father.
Took my babies to the park along with my nephews and little sister. The three with their outfit on are mama nala, papa trex, and baby snoozie. The one without an outfit is my little mocha. My dogs don’t care that I don’t spend a lot of time with them, or that they don’t get to play much, or that they don’t get to go on super long walks a the time. They are happy just to spend whatever time they can with me. A dogs love is unconditional so stop using excuses like I don’t spend much time with him/her as your reason for sticking your fur friend in a shelter.
I occupied myself giving little snoozie a bath while waiting to pick up his dad from the clinic. Finally got papa Trex neutered 3 days ago. Boy was he a grump and in pain. Even though I didn’t want to he had to be kept in a kennel just big enough to get up and stretch. Not allowed to go on long walks and jump all over the place. But his new favorite thing to do is knock the others around with his cone even the cat.

I had been away for three months and finally got back home late February. My long time best friend past away while in my sisters care and to this day I do not know the cause. The only thing that keeps me smiling is knowing she loved me with all she had and I still have her daughter by my side as well as these other monkeys. The little Rottweiler colored pup is Snoozie the one I decided I’d keep. Next to him is his sister moo moo who went to a great and loving family who spoil her. Next is the reddish brown girl named Squeaky who went to my good friends’ sister who also treats this puppy like a queen. Next are father and son. Followed up by mother and daughter.
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.
