BHRR’s Mudslide – SN’s Blue Brindle, female, Great Dane born March 31st, 2007, unspayed(to be spayed August 8th) and last shots scheduled for July 25th. At 8 weeks she was 10.1 pounds; 10 weeks 15.4 pounds; 11 weeks 17.6 pounds and 12 weeks 9.4 KGs(20.68 pounds). I will be getting a current weight on her July 25th @ 16 weeks when she goes in for her rabies. She is on Sentinel and her last fecal was normal. She has done wonderfully with her housebreaking and knows ‘sit’ for treats and before she gets her meals. We are currently working on leash manners, feeling comfortable with ears/nails and she is easy to bathe!She and her two surviving sister of BHRR’s Jenni and BHRR’s Abbi were born by C-section to a 72 pound emaciated Brindle mom, Nelly who is part of a cruelty case in Quebec (being fostered by an angel for the SPCA and she plans on adopting her). There were 8 in the litter and one was stillborn and 3 died within the first two weeks. The pups needed to be tube fed as the mom was too ill to take care of them. I was contacted when they were 6 weeks of age and asked to assist. They have been part of my program since they were 9 weeks old. The fostermom of the pups plus the fostermom of the dam were invited to our home to drop them off and to spend an afternoon visiting with us, partake in some food, to see how we lived and take care of the animals here.

Mudslide is SN’s in that she is neurologically impaired and has an hearing impairment. She is not up for adoption at this time and it has yet to be determined if she ever will be. I call her my ‘world traveler’ for she has gone to London, ON with me and to Kingston, ON to do homevisits for both Boba and Mazda and just this past Friday(July 20th, 2007) she came to the drive-in with us to hang out; socialize and run amok! 🙂 She is very sweet and her sky is full of the prettiest rainbows.

I want to thank her ‘mom’ immensely for all that she has done for these pups and her continued support of them while they are under our care. Mudslide and her sisters are affectionately known as the “Diaper Bag Babies!”
