Amy found the cutest puppy abandoned beside the road last night.  He couldn’t be more than 3 weeks old.  He still struggles to walk.  He was covered with so many fleas that his little body crawled.  It was horrible.  It took me about 45 minutes of bathing him to get them all off.  After the misery ended, he snuggled up and cried himself to sleep.  I mixed up the old fashioned formula of evaporated milk, a little oil and a little Karo syrup.  I had a 15cc syringe so I filled it up and he had about 1 1/2 of them.  Then he slept without a sound.  He was exhausted and so pitiful.  He was lethargic and his little head flopped all over the place.  He is so tiny.  I went to Wal-mart after midnight for a kitten bottle and formula.  He didn’t like it as well so I gave him the formula from the syringe.  He took less of it but still ate.  Amber took the 1-4 shift and fed him every hour and held him while he slept and washed his little bottom so he would poo and pee.

Today he is markedly better.  He has slept a lot but is eating well.  We are still feeding about every hour and a half.  He has had the energy to get down on the floor and crawl around while wagging his tail.  He’s a happy little soul.  What is he?  My guess…bird dog.  Very cute.  Right now, he’s got a full belly and he’s all sprawled out on me, sound asleep and happy as a clam.
