I saw a mama cow with the same expression this morning. Though I think she was a little newer to the whole experience. The calf was trying to stand for the first time as we drove past.

So sad for mama & puppies. Hope the others do well. So sad for you!

ciao,

Red Pen Mama - they seemed to have stabilized and are doing well. I'll be bottle feeding indefinitely as mama has no milk, but she's cleaning them up and keeping them warm for me. She's on antibiotics now, so she's doing better as well.

i knew there would be coffee with all that garb. you wouldn't survive if you didn't have it!

SunflowerMom said...

Awww, poor mama dog! How many did you lose? :( I can't imagine having to bottle feed that many puppies. There's nothing they can do to help her milk supply? I wonder if herbal remedies used for lactation in humans would work?

Bluepaintred said...

oh no! I tried to count the remaining pups at her side, but they are too jumbled for me.
I hope the others remain strong, and you too!

Yikes. Poor mama. Poor you. Just make sure you aren't too tired and don't give the puppies your coffee instead! Good luck.
