Cookie was a pregnant rescue dog that Kathy took into her home to foster. The local rescue asked Kathy if she had space, and she knew they had to move fast whenever a pregnant dog showed up in a shelter.
When Cookie arrived at Kathy’s home, she was so happy and full of love. She didn’t spend a minute not snuggling up against someone. Two weeks later, Cookie went into labor.
Kathy tried to lead Cookie to the designated birthing spot, but Cookie wanted to stay on the couch. They prepared the sofa, so it was safe, and they let Cookie do her thing.
Cookie looked to Kathy and her family for support. Everyone was only two feet away, and Cookie was happy to have them there. Kathy thought that after five puppies, Cookie was all done. Cookie gave birth to a total of nine babies.
It was stunning to watch Cookie and her puppies in the first 72 hours and the following weeks. Cookie was dedicated and careful, a great mother overall.
The character of a mom has a massive impact on the development of puppies. Cookie was calm, cool, and collected. She showed her children that they could trust everything.
After eight weeks, the puppies were adopted, and Cookie was adopted by Kathy’s friend. Kathy was so happy because that meant she could still see Cookie whenever she wanted.
