Major Tom, English Bulldog 7 week update

Eileen Ellis, a highly esteemed dog photographer from Cleveland's west side, came over and took some great photos of Major Tom. These are just 2 of my favorites. I just had to share!

4 week-old Puppy Update

I must admit that since Major Tom is minus any litter mates, I felt sorry for him all alone and so I have been cuddling him incessantly and even scooping him up from his basket next to my bed at night to let him sleep with me. A heating pad in the basket is an indispensible tool since single puppies don't have siblings to snuggle with. Some say that a single puppy will grow up to be much more independent and lack social skills, but who really knows?

But now Major Tom is one month old...

Tube Feeding or nursing an English Bulldog


Newborn English Bulldog puppies need to feed every two hours for the first four or five days so I am so glad that SugarPie is a good mother and nursing her baby. I think tube feeding would be so scary but you do what you have to do.
