I’m watching over 2 bitches and their 12 pups for a couple of weeks.
The pups are outrageously cute, and the mothers are very sweet, although certainly they have not received the best of care. This is one of the mothers:
…. which is not all that remarkable until you see the other:
After seeing a picture of the second mom, I thought for sure I’d be meeting an aloof and territorial dog. I wondered what the pups would be like and if I’d be able to sort out who is whose. The first turned out to be completely and utterly wrong, and the second matters some, but not much. Both moms co-parent equally and are very, very deeply bonded. It’s one of those rarer situations where you feel like you’re just incredibly lucky that the dog(s) in front of you crossed your path. I truly feel like I’m witnessing something that most people never get to see, and others don’t even acknowledge. There is an air about these two, and indeed their pups, that makes you realize how wild the world truly is and how little we, who claim to rule it, even know it.
I’ll just leave you with these.
Dumping them is something I’ll never understand.
