This photo shows the puppy at 5 days of age, the last day spent with Faith.

Unfortunately, even after 5 days, Faith was not producing any milk. This involved Julie bottle-feeding the puppy every two hours or so, day and night. We were also concerned about the long-term outcome for the puppy due to having no siblings to socialise with, this could have led to temperamental problems.

The decision to place her with a foster-mother, who could feed the puppy and who had puppies of her own for our puppy to socialise with, was made after we had the kind offer from a friend. Puppy is now with Auntie Dynah and her puppies, who are 3 days younger than Faith's. We will be visiting her regularly, and will post photographs after the visit. Watch this space!
