A Lesson Learned…

Our dog had a litter of puppies– It took quite awhile that night. but 9 had arrived and all had survived And (we thought) they were doing alright.

We noticed a few hours later That most of them needed more heat. We took them from Mom And got them all warm, And each of them something to eat.

Four times within 24 hours We supplement fed all those pups. It took a long time (Don’t forget – there were NINE!) But we knew it was worth all the fuss.

We lacked the experience and knowledge To realize that things were not good. The puppies would cry, Their mother would try – She was doing all that she could

Oh no! We were sad to discover That one of our puppies had died. Then 2, and then 3 – Oh WHAT can it be? And here we thought we had tried.

We gave a quick call to Revival. They told us the things we would need. “They’re hungry” they told, “Dehydrated, cold” “We will fax you some info to read”.

We frantically gathered our items And stomach fed each of the 6. Electrolytes! First For those that are worst! Then formula next we will mix.

We weighed them and measured each portion, By using amounts on the chart. We fed, wiped and cleaned, ‘Twas endless, it seemed… The feeding just 2 hours apart.
