    1. They're the abandoned pups from yesterday's post, Birgit--mutts, as far as we know, but a few seem to have some Fila Brasileiro or Mastiff in them... Shape of the face, paws, coloring. One is *huge*--at four weeks, he was 2.3 kg, while his siblings were 1.2. Two weeks later, he was an unbelievable FOUR kilos. The others are smaller, but also have pretty big-sized paws, so not sure how big they'll get. A few have an elongated body, Dachshund-like... With mutts it's always fun to watch them develop into adults; you really never know what you're going to get :)

    1. Thanks, Mark. Raising orphans is always a challenge, in both physical and psychological aspects. Now that they're (almost) past the major life-threatening risks, I'm wondering whether I've been a good "mom" in terms of setting boundaries and helping them bond as they should--both with each other, with other, older dogs, and with humans. I hope they won't have any serious permanent issues that might put their happiness at risk :(

  7. I want to cuddle them all, I'd love a basket full of puppies delivered.. Well that is until I remembered how much work taking care of puppies is. Those are some big old puppies, it looks like you're doing a great job.

    1. Thanks, Jen! Haha... I know what you mean, I'm constantly falling in love with puppies. But the work--oh my. And finding them good homes! That's the worst challenge, especially in this island where I live. So many homeless animals, so much neglect :(

  10. Adorable. I just went back and read their story. I am so happy these sweet puppies and their siblings found their way to you. You've done a remarkable thing to get them through a tough start and on to loving homes. I'm so sorry for the two who were lost but beyond thankful for the five who were saved. :-)

    1. Haha... I know that feeling, April. For me it's more of a "I want to keep these three puppies forever" -- but one more dog and my partner is going to kick me--and them--out of the house :D Thanks for stopping by!
