It is 4:00 AM. Why am I up? Because Lucy has bad diarrhea and very little, if any, milk. The puppies are nursing 90% of the time (squealing as they do so) and sleeping 10%, instead of vice-versa. Lucy is drinking water and I have just fed her some white rice and chicken broth in the hopes her system will handle that better than the puppy food she is on. I have hand fed the pups and they are finally (for the most part) sleeping.
So....unless I have already arranged for you to come help with something (Sue) or unless I phone you to bring something over, please refrain from phoning or visiting today - Lucy and I need some rest.
Lucy is sleeping comfortably now, but I will be calling the vet (and the SPCA, whom I'm fostering Lucy for) in the morning.
