From Ja: Those babies may not be full blooded Lhasas or Tzus, but they are so cute and adorable. Heff and Tidie Whitie (as I call him) are leading the pack in maturity. They are a very vocal crowd with lots of whining and crying going on (I hope that doesn’t translate into barks later on).
We’re hoping to chronicle these babies as they grow. Please check in each week or so for new pictures.
To see the whole story, start with the original post at the bottom.
There are two girls and four boys.
Meet Rustic (Rusti) Barns. Female. Approx 2 weeks old.
Meet Timber Barns. Another female.
This is little Whitie – hmmm, wonder how he got that name. Male.
Baby Splinter – another male. Very nice coloring.
Heff a nice chocolate brown boy.
Are these not cute babies! Lhasa mother and unknown dad.
Here is the cutie mom, Celina.
You can donate for the care of these babies HERE via Paypal. Or HERE if you’d like to send a check!!
As usual, this story starts with an email – from a shelter north of Dallas. It went something like this….
I am with the xxxxx Shelter. We are a new facility that does only stray holds, no adoptions. The SPCA comes over once a day and will take all of the animals that have not been claimed by their owner that they feel are adoptable. At the present time we have a little Lhasa that has 6 pups. The SPCA will not take her because of the pups. We need to find a home for them or they will be euthanized. If you can help in any way please contact me as soon as possible.
Thankfully, we have a wonderful foster mom that just LOVES little puppies and is always up for fostering babies. So, a brief email to her, and this momma and puppies were on the way to the DFW area!
On Monday, Oct 2, 2006, this gorgeous momma lhasa girl and her babies became wards of Lone Star Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso Rescue, thanks to foster mom Ja.
The first real message came on Friday, along with some adorable pictures. The update was
They are already walking – not very steady but walking nontheless. They want to eat dry food. They have started loving on one another. and grooming each other. I just can’t believe it. This weekend they all get names thanks to those that provided me with possibilities. I have already named on – the fawn female is Timber Barns. Jay has named one of the black ones Barney Barns. Am thinking about naming the white one Whitie but naming a black one White would be rather funny.I think they brought in a bunch of ants as they are always ants around their kennel and I didn’t have ants before.
Stay tuned for more information and pictures.
