I am a sucker!!!

Got an urgent plea last night to foster a 6 week old GSD puppy from the rescue I foster for.

I caved!!!

Baaahhhhh, cute baby fluffiness coming my way this afternoon!!! Pictures soon to follow. Get get my house puppy proofed and run my dogs ragged so they don't overwhelm the baby!!!

Nice thing about fostering puppies is that they get adopted quick!!! We won't adopt until they are 8 weeks old, so I will get 2 weeks of puppy love. Hopefully it will cure my puppy fever!!!

I have never had a baby this young. Any advice? Should I still be wetting his/her food? Feed 4x a day? Outside every 2 hours?

Very excited!!!

Awww, I'm envious!

Yes, still wet his/her food, feed at LEAST 4x day, maybe 6x, and outside after every time he eats, drinks, wakes up or plays.

Enjoy, Mom!

Sometimes being a "sucker" is good.
Thank you for taking this baby in.
