We find ourselves with a litter of 10 puppies which have been taken from their home by a local dog warden because their mother was sick and could not feed them properly. They were very underweight and have been quite poorly. They are now 6 weeks old and we have them in a foster home in the Midlands and are feeding them up and nursing them back to health. The puppies will be hearing tested

We are now looking for homes for these puppies. All potential adopters will be subject to our rigorous assessment and home check procedure. They may require more care than normal puppies who have been well looked after from birth. With Christmas approaching please consider your plans for the festive season and whether you can give time to a puppy. We will also expect you and your family to visit the litter and talk to the fosterers about your circumstances.

If you feel you could give one of these puppies a good home please call our adopters line 07976360468

Thanks Maggi, they were so tiny, at 5 weeks weighed what you'd expect a 3 week old puppy to weigh. They had really bad worms so swollen tummies and spindly legs so obviously the mother hadn't been wormed. Then a couple of day of eating decent food they got terrible diarrhoea and we though we might lose some or all of them. Amazingly they seem to have turned a corner in the last 36 hours and have each put on a kilo or more in a week. The best part too is they have become responsive to people and the resident dogs. Now we just have the hard work of finding homes for them at just the wrong time of year.

Assuming you do come to the UK next week you can always visit and get tour puppy fix".

Thanks Anne - do you need any things for them? I could pick up some food or toys or something if it would be helpful. Fellow forumites perhaps we could all get a few toys for these babies and the other dalmatians in welfare for Xmas??

Mum and Dad have also been taken by the Dog Warden but only on Friday. The dog is in a foster home and the plan is to have the bitch spayed - she has pyometra and then put her in a foster home while she recovers. However the Dog Warden found her so shy that he kept her himself over the weekend.

She seems happiest in her crate and is not at all comfortable with being indoors or with household noises. The original idea was to get some weight on her before she had her operation but even after the pups had gone she was not gaining weight which is why she was taken too. Fortunately neither show any signs of aggression just not uised to "normal" life. The pups were the same, never been handled but now they are full of personality and very responsive.

Poor little scraps, all of them - mum and dad too. Sad Taking on another pup isn't an option at the moment - good luck to them all. At least they've got a better chance for happy lives now they're getting proper care.

Thanks all. I will ask about toys etc. our biggest expenses so far has been food, bedding and disinfectant.

Their first meal was scrambleed egg which they wolfed down but because of their tummy troubles we have had to put them on a starter food and need to keep them on it longer than usual. We had to buy a big roll of vet bedding, all that diarrhoea meant LOTS of washing. We then needed the special bacteriocide that kennels and vets use to prevent re-infection. Many of the Pet supply people have been very helpful and generous giving us free supplies or considerable discounts. The local vet visited free of charge and the support has been amazing.

So everybody - make sure you sign up to Easyfundraising so that your Xmas presents generate a bit of much needed income for the Welfare and dig out your chequebooks and buy some Welfare goodies (I think they still have some left - Anne please don't sell my diary!!) or just simply remember how much your dalmatians mean to you and send a cheque to Welfare to help those less fortunate. Even a fiver is fine, even just one pound will mean dinner for one spotty baby!

The good folk of Welfare work long and hard for NO MONEY to help these poor dogs. Expenses are many. Please give generously or me and Caper WILL come carol singing round at yours and I promise you don't want that! Laughing Laughing

Thanks Maggi for your plug.

To save having to hear Maggi's singing you can send a cheque made payable to British Dalmatian Welfare to our Treasurer: Angela Clarkin, 52 Webster Way, Hawkinge, Folkestone, Kent CT18 7PZ.

There are also lots of other options like making a direct payment in to our bank account or paying by credit card via virginmoneygiving.

If you look on our website www.dalmatianwelfare.co.uk there is a whole section on "Giving", We also have an online shop selling dalmatian goods - I won't sell your diary Maggi it has already gone to Pat.

Easy fundraising is great too. I've just bought some padded envelopes from Viking for our calendars and raised 2.94 for Welfare.

Thank you all for your good wishes.
