this is a just quick little blog write up as I wanted you to say hello to someone, as our lives have now been turned upside down since Sunday morning.
Say hello to our little 8 week old greyhound puppy who we have named Milo. We received an urgent phone call from a trainer we know on Saturday asking if we could take him. Milo was the runt of the litter of 9 puppies and was being picked on by the others he his half the size of his brothers and sisters so tiny ( My cat Timmy is 3 times the size he is ) , and under weight nothing like a healthy puppy should look like. If we hadn't of taken him he was being taken to the race track that night to try and find a home if he wasn't offered one he would have been put to sleep. We could not bare that. He was riddled with fleas and a proper baby he cries all the time. Milly our 5 year old is great Kia not so as she's lost her sight she's unsure bless her but over the past couple of days since he has arrived both girls are getting used to him. Although I am keeping Kia and Milo separate at the moment as I don't want Kia to get distressed they are having a sniff a couple of times a day then I keep him away from her. We certainly have our work cut out over the next few weeks he didn't even know how to eat properly he's so tiny bless him. But he is now eating well and getting into a little routein during the day, night time is a different story we have been putting him in a crate next door to the girls but he has screamed the house down so yesterday we took the crate up to our bedroom and he slept until 4am after crying for 10 mins better than the 2 hours the night before. He then went out to the toilet but wouldn't settle so he came into our bed and slept in my arms. Last night was the same but because he is so small and wants the comfort he will sleep with us over the next few weeks until he is stronger, being taken away from mum at 6 weeks far to early didn't help him.
So our lives have been turned upside down :-) a greyhound puppy did not feature in our plans at all but a rescue is a rescue no matter what and where you are in life.

He's now at the biting stage to and his teeth are like little razors but its going to be nice watching him grow and giving him a life away from the race track he is now going to be one very pampered and loved boy.
Just chilling with Milly

This is one little greyhound Puppy who will be loved and adored, brought up as a pet and not for making money. Look into my eyes mum, I will soon have you wrapped around my little paws.
