Meet Marlowe and Moxie

We have held our breath for the last two weeks afraid to get too attached to these little guys knowing how the odds were against them. We've heated bottles every two hours around the clock and bottle fed them.  At last we finally feel we are somewhat in the clear for the moment at least.  We would like to introduce you all to Marlowe and Moxie.

Now with their eyes open to see the world these little guys are growing like bad weeds!

They now bark and growl....

They've graduated to a big puppy bottle and are downing almost 2 ounces of milk at a feeding.

They waddle around on shaky little chubby puppy legs. 

Mostly though they still just eat, poop and sleep

And to our sweet Sadie girl who is no longer with us we so want to say.... It's okay ! You did not die in vain to give these puppies life. 

We have decided we will keep both of them. You cannot imagine how attached we all are to these two little pains and we know we could never give them up now. They will grow up on the same farm as their mother and sleep in a box under the stairs on those cold winter nights just as she did. Their puppy noses will give sweet puppy kisses to the same loving humans that she did. We have bid her goodbye and grieved for her while caring for her pups. In some way we almost feel as if she has watched over these two little pups for the past two weeks. Everyday they grow stronger and we hurt less. I still visit the grave daily and talk to her.  But more now I talk to these puppies.
