I bought the pup this little stuffed toy yesterday. It is for puppies, there is a warming bag inside of it that we microwave for 30 seconds and it gets all nice and warm. Pup loves to get underneath it and snuggle with it. He bonded with it immediatly and they have been best buds ever since. If he gets fussy and it isn't time for him to eat yet, we warm up his friend and put it next to him and he calms right down.
We seem to be settling into a routine. He eats about every 3 hours, sometimes sooner and I never let him go more than 4 hours without eating. I would like to start keeping track of his weight but he is way to wiggly for the kitchen scale.
We are still waiting for another elimination, nothing happened yesterday so if nothing happens by this afternoon another enema is in his future. That IS not going to be fun! I am thinking of adding a touch of Karo Syrup to his formula to see if that will get things moving.
Today I am optimistic about the pups future. He seems to be getting stronger everyday and I noticed yesterday his posture is becoming more like a pup and less like a fetus. I am still preparing myself and my kids for a possible heartbreak.
Update: I got a few e mails and a couple of comments about puppy not being warm enough with just his bud. He also has a heating pad in with him set on low so he is staying warm. Thanks for the concern.
