Our New Girl at Four Weeks
This dear little soul is our next official "Chessie of Catfish Corner". We found her people parents, Ruth and Butch in Pelican Lake, WI, and their female "Gem" had a litter of five pups four weeks ago. Three females and two males. Not a big litter so that could be very favorable for the lucky five---lots of mommy's milk!
She is the darkest of the litter and we're so excited to be looking forward to this little "dark horse" to be part of our lives.
Ruth called us last night to say "she" (we haven't picked a name yet) wasn't moving her head much on Tuesday. She investigated and found the pup had a swollen area by her neck.....so off to the vet they went. The doctor wasn't sure what was going on speculated it might be a .... spider bite? So here she is at four weeks taking this little dose of antibiotic. Hope it doesn't undo all the good of that momma's milk.
