My husband found these adorable puppies this afternoon in the highway. Someone had simply thrown them away! Poor little things are eat up with the biggest fleas that I have ever seen in my life, The blonde one is a little girl and the solid black one is a boy. We are guessing that they are about 6 weeks old. As I was taking their picutures, I think I noticed that the little blonde one is still young enough to have blue eyes. Is this an indication of age possibly?

They are now in one of our bathtubs sound asleep after eating a hearty little meal and drinking some water.

My husband went to the vet immediately to get some flea soap, but she said flea soap wasn't recommended for puppies this young. She suggested a pill that will kill the fleas in a few hours. I want to bathe the little buggers so bad LOL

May each and every person who has been following this story find a blessing, and a ray of sunshine, and a bit of wisdom that has been shared by fellow Jigidiers in their comments they have left.

In case the comment below is missed somehow on the other puzzles.....please allow me to post it on each of the adventures of Callie Lou and her brother............

I am THANKFUL for soooooooooooo many things!!!!!!!! I stumbled into Jigidi not so long ago. Not only has Callie Lou found a community filled with support, well wishes, wisdom, sharing, caring, tips and warmth, it has become so evident to me too :-)))))))))) I am so thankful for Jigidi and all of its wonderful people. What a great way for everyone to start off the new year. I am thrilled to have been part of Calli Lou's and her brothers life and the oppertunity to share it with the world. For such tiny pups, they have indeed traveled all around the world. The love that wasn't there from their beginning has now been multiplied beyond count and we all embrace their future with high hopes. I am so greatful for Libby welcoming Callie into her home and heart!!!!! My husband stands tall in my eyes for all that he has done for these little guys. His very first emergency trip to the vets office to find something to combat the fleas, another trip that night for oatmeal shampoo aftr learning fleas might could jump 6 feet LOL LOL LOL, the early morning visit to the vet to get their first shots and deworming, the trips to fetch food and toys LOL, his tender heart, and his patience with me through all this, makes him one special guy in my book!!!! He has always been good to me. God blessed me with my husband and our son and He has always had His hand in my life!!!!! I learned a good while back that when we ask of Him things and it seems that He doesn't answer, that we are often asking for the wrong things. I am sure many of you have seen this in your lives too? Sometimes we just need to change what we are asking for and then do some searching for what He has already provided for us. He has promised to supply us with every need. We just have to do our part and search out those supplies that He already has in place.

I am delighted that the story of these two little pups have touched so many lives. I am thankful for each of you that have shared in their journey and best of all, we all have something good to look forward to because of Libby. Who could ask for more? LOL

So here is to ALL of Jigidi and to the future!!!!!!! :-)))))))))))))))))))) Hugs and appreciation all around with more to come :-)))))))))))))

Please let me post this on the puzzles and then I will be back with replies to the comments :-)

Let me give all of you and update for today. When the trucker guy was a no show, and then our decision not to let the other lady have her because they had numerous other dogs that were kept in pens, it was back to us keeping her. But since she is part Lab, I fear that the alligators in the pond would eat her if she went for a swim, coupled with us living next to the highway that my husband found the puppies, we would need a fenced in back yard to keep her safe....which we don't have. It has been an emotional roller coaster ride with trying to decide whethr or not to keep her. But the latest news is that the trucker guy might end up with her after all.

Here is what happened today. It turned out that my husband was calling the wrong number yesterday when he was trying to get in touch with the guy. He finally realized his mistake and dialed the right number. The guy saw where we had tried to call him, so he called us back early this morning and hubby told him he could still have her. He came right on out. BUT....I was royally ticked at not hearing from him yesterday.....I would have expected a call saying that he was unable to come right then and would come for her today......but come to find out, he was in a section of Florida where he did not have reception. Anyway, being the grump pot that I am early in the morning, I made some hard fast rules. He could come and look at her but he could not take her home with him today. I want to test him to see if he keeps his word about getting her tomorrow. The poor little thing is still scratching like crazy, so back to the vet she went after he left. The vet took about 20 minutes with her but saw no reason to prescribe anything. He said that her skin was just dry and causing the itching. Probably the massive flea infestation didn't help either.

Anyway, Bella is still with us and we will see if she goes home with the guy tomorrow. There will still be some rules though. If he will let us take a picture of him holding her, give us his address, and promise to check in with us or let us call him, then I will feel better about letting her go. I so want to keep her, but like I said, I am afraid that something would happen to her due to the pond and road issue.

I do know one thing......this guy is going to have to prove himself worthy of her before I let him take her. If you are thinking that I can be a grump pot at times then you would be right. I fight hard when something comes down to "the principle of the thing!!!"

I did indeed loose my internet last night while trying to answer comments. Windstream got another call LOL as I was pretty ticked about the instability of my internet. Work is still going on with the lines but the tech support guy put us down to have a repairman come out today and check everything on our end. Low and behold, MY MODEM has been at fault. The repairman just left and I now have a new modem AND INTERNET!!!!!!!!! YESSS!!!!!!! Update to follow in just a bit.....I want to let everybody know why there were no updates yesterday and no new photos.

Bless you and your hubby! These are such beautiful little puppies. Thank you for sharing them with us.

( Are you Kathy? I saw a reference in another puzzle and came running...I'm Michelle and I also am livid with the...the... no word that I can politely use on Jigidi comes to mind about people who would do this evil thing.)

Darn, I'd just love to hold and cuddle and adopt these beautiful babies!

How can one not just fall in love with them!?

Wolflady, thank YOU so much for all that you do. God Bless you!!!!

Is your avatar a lab?

Going to upload some more pictures of the babes in a short bit with an update :-)

wolflady

God Bless You for being so kind. People should have the same thing done to them, as they do
to animals. Makes me sick. I carry two leashes in my car, and I can't tell you how many
dogs I have caught, and found their owners. I also feed stray cats, and try to catch them,
sometimes I have luck, and sometimes not. But, they sure know where to come for
the food, and my dog is always watching out the windows, and lets me know when they
are there. Keep up the good work, these littles guys are beautiful.

Rebecca, while sad that they both were abandoned, you are quiet right that they have each other. It sure makes it easier LOL While I was bathing the little girl in one bathtub, the little boy hollered the whole time in the other bathtub while sis was away!!!!! So I am indeed glad that they are together!!!!!!

Wilddog, thank you for the tip. I bathed the little buggers awhile ago with the oatmeal shampoo that my husband bought. Between picking the fleas off and smushing them, the pill that the vet prescribed, taking them out to piddle in the cold, and also bathing them, there is not a flea to be seen. The shampoo did not any insecticide in it either. It was all natural. Your guess as to what happened to the fleas are as good as mine!!!! But someting sure happened to them. According to the vet, the pill only last 24 hours. I want to check with the vet to get more info on it. It is either very powerful and works wonders or the fleas are now searching out our two cats. I hope that is not the case!!!!!! They will be getting their flea prevention stuff applied to the back of thier necks tomorrow. I don't like using any of that stuff and only use it when there is a problem. So just to keep things in check, Bandit and Sophia will get a dose tomorrow. Hopefully those huge flea monsters bit the dust!!!!!! I will definitely be on the watch for any signs of them!!!!!

The pups are flea free now, but still scratching from being bitten. They have to be happier though LOL :-)

Warbler, thank YOU for sharing with us about what you do!!!! I think it is great!!!!! Thank you so much for taking care of our feline friends!!!!!!!

At least one should be named "Lucky" - lucky to have each other, and of course to have found you.

Hummingbird59 try going to www. ask.com to find many solutions to the question of getting rid of fleas in puppies and the home. One suggestion is a solution of dish washing detergent and either cider vinegar or white vinegar. Make sure that you check your home for any invasion of the nasty pests.

Good puppy Karma! For some reason they faced suffering and NOW are receiving love, care, support, belonging! My wife and I work with the local SPCA(they have a no kill policy) raising abandoned kittens that are to small to take care of themselves. Its always heart warming to see them bounce back to remembering they are masters of the world. Thank you for sharing with us.

Hummingbird59

Kittenlove, thank you for your show of support and caring!!!!!

Greeneyelady, I can definitely tolerate being looked at and called crazy LOL as we both share the same ideals. Thank you for helping out whenever you have the chance to :-)

greeneyedlady

Hummingbird, thank you for being there and taking the time to stop. I have done that many times and people look at me like I'm crazy. Maybe I am but hurting an animal, to me, is like hurting an innocent child. Neither asked to come into this world and it is our responsibility to take care of them. Thanks again. I hope you can find good homes for them.

Thank you for sharing your heart....glad you were there. Probably throw aways from some puppy mill. Poor little things, but they are safe now. God Bless you each and every day.

Healer, I guess some people have never been blessed by having interactions with animals. Once you interact with an animal, you learn that they really do have feelings!!!!!!! People hurt people all the time and I am afraid that animals fall victum far more than we will ever want to know. Thank you for caring!!!

What's wrong with people!
