Look at my girls developing healthy socializing skills!!!! #proudpapa

I could watch this for hours and not only for the cute factor! This developmental stuff(teething, play fighting, etc) is so crucial for them and part of NORMAL, HEALTHY puppyhood…you all(๐ŸคŸ-our new secret handshake ๐Ÿค) have been like a crutch supporting us through all the feedings and milestones, you remind me of every reason I do this work. I donโ€™t remember ever being so, for lack of a better phrase, deliriously happy through a few-day-old-orphans-round-the-clock-effort (usually itโ€™s more like fighting burnout and trying to stay awake with absurd amounts of coffee โ˜•๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) so THANK YOU. You should all share in the sense of accomplishment I have when I see these ladies doing puppy things ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

Hope wins the internet

My heart canโ€™t take much more. Jersey came to us utterly defeated and resigned to death(no kidding, I felt it) She was a new, lactating, mom that was hit by a car and fractured her pelvis. Her โ€œownersโ€ abandoned her at animal services. She couldnโ€™t walk, moving required a Herculean effort and I had to carry her everywhere, she just didnโ€™t have the energy to try anymore. Until she met the Divas,then everything changed, they were allowed to nurse a bit(before she developed a gnarly infection) and basically became pocket-size therapy dogs just for Jersey. She got her will to live back after spending some time with our ladies AND HUGE NEWS, she is going for a checkup at 3pm, and if it goes well, she will be ready for her spay and forever home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #wow
