Have you ever heard of a canine love child? Your answer should be yes, because I am one. Today I’m telling the tale of how I came to be. Mom missed Emma terribly and decided at some point in 2019 she would like another GBGV puppy not to replace Emma but to share some of her extra love with. Unfortunately, our breeder was not going to have any litters in 2019. Mom was bummed, but there might be another breeder who would have a pup for her at some point. Of course, I have been told all these things by my sisters and Mom since I wasn’t even created when some of the this happened.
On March 8, 2019, Mom got a Facebook message from our breeder. There were no words, just the above photo. Mom didn’t know what to think so she asked what the photo meant. Well, this is where the canine love child comes in. See, my dog mom was in heat, but her cycle was over,so it was thought. Doughboy, my dog dad, took a fancy to her. Left alone for just seconds, the two of them “got together”. Obviously, they were in love, and my litter was the result of their tryst. I was inside this belly, a canine love child! Mom was so excited but had to wait to see if there would be a girl for her in the litter.
On March 25th, she received another Facebook message saying the puppies were coming. She tells me she sat at her computer all night getting messages and photos as my siblings and I were born. I was the second of two girls. Can you believe how small I was when I came out into the world! I think I was the size that one of my paws is now!
Here I was with my siblings once everyone was born. Quite a cute pile of puppies, even if I do say so myself.
Over the first nine weeks of my life Mom received photos at least once a week. Can you believe the first month or so, she was sure she was going to take my sister and not me! Luckily, she figured out I was the better pup. On the day I turned nine weeks old Bailie, Madison, and Mom came to meet me and take me home. Look at what a chubby puppy I was, but I already had my same silly expression.
First I met my new mom. She seemed alright to me, but she fell in love with me immediately. I could tell she would be putty in my jumbo paws!
Before I met my new sisters, my dog dad and I went over to the fenced area they were in to check them out. All of us were quite curious. My dad said they seemed okay, but I was a bit apprehensive.
Next thing I know, I was in the kennel with Bailie and Madison. Neither of them seemed to be very interested in me, but I figured in time I would grow on them. As you know Madison and I are besties. Bailie is still not wild about me, but she tolerates me.
Before loading up the car and heading seven hours north, I had a few last moments with my dog mom. She seemed to be happy to have one less puppy to care for, so it wasn’t a sad thing.
Next it was off to the car, and the beginning of a new life for this canine love child.
