This weekend did not go as planned. I was hoping to go visit my parents but I didn't feel well so I stayed home and then puppies started dying. They caught kennel cough from their mother and weren't nursing and I think the mom's milk started to dry up. So, I stayed home to relax but ended up bottle feeding the remaining puppies and texting the vet for medicine. I did finally get medicine and IV fluids for them tonight. Only 3 puppies left out of 7. I hope they make it. I'm going to bring them to my office tomorrow so that I can feed them goat's milk every two hours. Did you know Safeway sells goat's milk now? I actually saw in on sale last week but couldn't think of a reason to buy it. I should have bought it and froze it just in case. At $5 a quart it's still cheaper than puppy powder formula and there's no mixing.
Anyhow, I'm not very optimistic about the puppies because they are only 2 weeks old but I will do everything that I can. On Tuesday I will be taking my other foster dog in for her long awaited knee surgery. What else this week.... I ordered free seeds from the seed library. I'm going to finish installing my drip irrigation system so that my garden needs less tending. My winter garden has been a flop for the most part. Some of the seeds finally sprouted but today they were gone. I think a bird found them. At least the snow peas are doing well. No peas yet but there are some blossoms. I collected so many seeds from last years crops plus the free seeds from the library so I won't have to buy any unless I want something more exotic and I don't because I don't have time for it.
Oo, oo, and I get to make my extra mortgage payment this week because it's the end of the month. I always look forward to that!
