Cuddles aka Puddles aka Tiddlebum

Can you tell I haven't decided on a name yet ?

Right now, she's Cuddles because that's all she wants to spend her time doing . Cuddles is an 11 year Shih Tzu who was surrendered to a local shelter...pregnant and due within the next 2 weeks . After speaking with the director of our rescue (I so love that woman!), we brought her home on Sunday but, by Monday morning, I realized she wasn't feeling well. Rushed her to the vet hospital where she had x-rays and ultrasound, and put on IV. Fortunately, she's much better today and if all is ok tomorrow, she'll be returning home. Any signs of distress, or labor, and we'll be heading into the vet hospital immediately.

Please send all your good vibes and prayers her way so that she comes through this safe and sound.

We'll be fostering her until she goes into labor. Once the pups are born, if there are any complications, they will all be in more specialized care. If all goes well, then they'll be returning here.

It's the girls at the shelter who sought help for her, and the rescue that are the angels, klm . I have the easiest part in all this...I get to love her up silly .

Oh lp... what a sweet little face she has!!! Extremely kissable
All my thoughts and prayers will be with her (and you, of course!!).
I still can't believe someone would purposely (or even accidentally) allow an 11 yr old dog to become pregnant. That poor little thing.

klm is right, you are truly an

Holy crap, 11 and pregnant . What are people thinking . Well she is in good hands now.

Puddles, hehehehe, love that name. We named Puddles because it looked like she walked in mud puddles due to her pointed colouring.

I am sending my prayers that all goes well in this pregnancy! Who could possibly let that happen at 11! Why was she not spayed! How many litters did this poor girl have?

Adding my prayers to her safe delivery. You mf, are absolutely fantastic for taking her in. But then I didn't expect anything less of you once I read about her.
Just curious - did she not come with a name she is used to?

Oh this poor sweet soul...she is finally being looked after. Hope it is not anything serious and she can come back to your heavenly abode soon

And though I agree about the angels at the shelter who wanted to give her a chance and the rescue angels stepping in also know that the call for a foster was made over a number of days and YOU were the angel with your plate already full who stepped up

I sincerely hope she and all her pups pull through and go on to lead happy loving lives

She's so sweet. Praying that she's okay and makes it through this ordeal in good shape. I'd like to get my hands on the neck of the person who allowed this to happen to her and then dumped her! I cannot say what I'd like to say here, but I will say bless you for taking her in and giving her the love she so deserves. I agree with the others, you are an

I'd stick with Cuddles LP....just the name gives her warmth and a feeling of being protected and loved

Bless you and your cohorts once again

She's home . What a big difference, she's feeling much, much better .

I now have an idea of what it was like for dh to wait on me hand and foot towards the end of my pregnancy . The little princess made it clear she much prefers her own bedroom suite (she's taken up residence in my older son's room) and I'm in the process of taking notes on her preferred menu plans . She prefers to eat off a plate and not from a bowl, has rejected all dog food, and has a preference for chicken...warmed up of course. Tomorrow we try ground turkey and sweet potatoes. She refuses tap water but laps up bottled water....slightly warmed as well. The little bugger is going to keep me on my toes, that's for sure .

She doesn't respond to it at all. She's from a home where she lived with 20 other dogs so I don't imagine she was taught her name.

Is that really typical of most Shih Tzus, Shaykeija? I had heard that before. I would think she'd be ravenous but completely turns up her nose with most food offered to her. Our guys are certainly enjoying the leftovers though .

Do you know how many pups she's carrying, LP? Poor dear--I hope it all goes smoothly for her! I'm sure she's enjoying her stay at Auntie LP's

X-rays showed at least 5 pups, Hazel. I've done a lot of reading these last few days and I'm a little nervous for her .

Late night dinner was a hit! She even had seconds so I guess my cooking isn't that bad after all .

My sister has 3, and they're ALL divas!! Even the male (he's probably the biggest!)

But for such little babies they have HUGE personalities!! I prefer large dogs, but Shih Tzus get to me. How can you not love those big, beautiful eyes and that soft hair

My thoughts and prayers with her.. Others I heard also went into a great rescue in Ontario.

Thanks LP. Didn't know she was in that type of environment.
Will keep my fingers crossed and send out lots of prayers that things go well for her. Little munchkin.
