BHRR Breaking News / Updates / Alerts!

1) I wanted to extend the biggest and most sincerest and incredibly humbled thanks to so many Powdered Esbilac Angels!  I have been witness to a lot of amazing and touching acts of kindness over the past 21.5 years BHRR has been around and what has come this way to The Bakers Dozen has warmed me right to my soul. I was so fearful of having our needs for Powdered Esbilac for The Bakers Dozen filled and when we posted our urgency, a wonderfully strong community of caring hearts came together to assist us. I am deeply and forever indebted to each of you….  Thank you everyone for helping us!! I have always said it takes a village to raise children and it is no different for a litter of puppies, especially those sadly rejected by a broken emaciated Puppymill GD Mama. She is doing quite well physically herself now and emotionally it shall be a lot longer to rehab. One day at at time!

Our remaining urgent needs are Pee Pads, appropriate Giant Breed puppy toys and donations towards their Vet Bills which will be into the many thousands.

PVD Essential Care Puppy canned & Kibble are also in big need – Vet Food

Accounts are set up at Kanata Animal Hospital 613-836-2848 and also Liston Animal Hospital 613-591-0966 under their Mama Gem.

The Bakers Dozen are all back to Liston Animal Hospital on November 7th!

This picture is of The Bakers Dozen today – 3.5 weeks of age – in the ‘feed’ part of their 8 x 5 x 4 pen. They are now devouring 38.5 cups of Powdered Esbilac a day!

We have also been introducing them to ‘slurry’ once a day – two cans of PVD Essential Care Puppy Food extremely well mixed into 6 cups of Esbilac with a dollop of corn syrup etc. They are not quite developmentally ready yet they are being exposed to it as no less than two puppies are quite texture phobic!

The area on the left that you see a crate piece covering is a hole we have in the custom pen Sean & Mason built that allows us to put one of the electric fireplaces on to add additional heat if needed into their pen. We have not had to do so since they were first born as they are regulating their bodies wonderfully!

From our home to all of our friends, family and supporters, Happy Thanksgiving! We feel we have so much to be thankful for, even in the days we are feeling so much darkness….we know we have many blessings, even if we do not realise it at the time…
