She looks like a papillon to me too, maybe she is mixed with chihuahua or maybe she was the runt of her litter. She is adorable though, I'll take her off your hands!
I know you've gotten a lot of answers so far, but I just wanted to say the boiled chicken and rice or boiled ground meat and rice is an excellent idea, as long as it's not too much because i've heard that the rice expands once it's in the stomach. Every time one of our dogs has been sick they've said to give them that. My one dog Lacey had gastroenteritis 3 weeks ago (a large intestine problem) and spent the weekend in the vet ER and we had to feed her tiny bits of chicken and rice for awhile, and she is doing great now. I think it is very easy for them to digest.
You sound like you live on "Green Acres"!!! I think you should change her name from "Whatever" to "Arnold". What a wonderful life that must be. Except the fixed income part. I know that must be very hard. Especially when financial emergencies come up. How is the little pup today? You are too far away for me to come over and help out. Sorry, I would love to.
Puppy report, well Whatever decided she needed to stretch her legs and my husband woke me up at two am, seems she got out of her box and was wandering around in the kitchen, he heard her squeek. Ate good this morning and no poop problem. She sure does sleep a lot though and she also likes her head buried into what she is sleeping on. So I make her a tent and she fixes it to her liking.
We named our farm ODAT "One Day At A Time", which is perfect because when I go out to the barn in the morning I never know what I will find so we just take it ODAT.
One of the pygmy goats decided she didn't like the door I fixed from the small pasture to their pen (to keep the freezing cold out of the main barn when necessary) which is one third of my barn, anyway she knocked a hole in it, guess she wanted a picture window. The have access to the larger fenced-in pasture during the day. I keep them out of the big pasture at night because of the coyotes that are around. Although 1/2 Pint (Great Pry") does a good job of protecting them.
I always end my posts with rainbows on the different forums because, believe it or not, no matter how bad a day has been it always seems like I have been given a rainbow of special things during the day and I just want everybody to also have a rainbow day. Since I am a newbie here if it insults anybody I won't put it on.
I know Wendy was just curious and if I sounded abrupt I didn't mean to. I guess I could be considered a semi farmer. Three years ago if anybody said I would be delivering goat babies, giving shots to sheep, docking tails, and stuff you really don't want to know about I would have told them they were crazy. But yep I am a doing it, along with the summer garden, and raising pigs to go to market for us and other people that order them. We are strictly organic, no medication in any feed for the critters. The only medication is if they are sick and deworming.
