Tiny Puppies Thrown Away

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!!!"

Jawz, LOL they stole our hearts the minute we laid eyes on them!!!!! :-) At this point it has become a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The little black one has now been placed in a good home. The little girl will stay with us until we find just the right person for her. We would love to keep her, but we have a large pond right next to us that has alligators in it. With her having lab in her, I am afraid that we would loose her to the alligators, plus there is the highway where my husband found them that runs in front of our house. We have already lost one by being hit by a car several years back. It too was thrown out. He was the most devoted thing!!!! I don't want to break anyones heart with the story, so I won't go into details. But I sooooo wish that he was still around!!!!!

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.

Jawz2

Bless your hearts for taking care of these little babies! I wonder if they're going to steal your hearts and become a part of your family! :)))))

Joy2U, thank you sooooo much for that tip!!!!! We definitely have the Dawn. There is no way I can hold them and love on them in the shape that they are now in......and I want to get my hands on them soooooo bad!!! I held them for a while, and the fleas were crawling everywhere, so in the tub they went. I petted them for the longest while catching and killing the fleas as I spotted them, but tons of fleas to go. You simply want to hug and love on them so a bath is definitely forth coming!!!!!!!

joy2u

Bathe them with Dawn dishwashing detergent. Lather them up, wrap in a towel, and wait 10 minutes. Rinse, dry and love on them. This will kill most of the fleas; some will hide around face and in ears. You can bathe them every day this way 'till fleas are gone. Bless you.
