As the foster picked up the ringing phone, he had no way of knowing that he would end up with a 5 puppy litter of Labrador Retriever mixes. He also wouldn't know why. Then he found out. Several miles away, a family moved into their newly purchased home only to discover that the previous owners had abandoned them in the back yard. They and another puppy were in awful shape. Would our foster come and get them? Silly question, huh? Especially if you know our fosters. Well, off he went to pick up these little babies that had almost no hair, were cold, were scared, and had no idea that they were being saved. He called them the 'A' litter and gave each one a name starting with A. There are three males: Audie, Austin, and Atom, and two females: Alaina and Alia. They are presently 4 1/2 months old, and weigh approximately 15 lbs. except for Alia, the runt of the litter. She weighs 11 lbs. and will probably mature to between 35 and 40 whereas the others will be in the 45 lb. range. Yes, Alia is smaller than the rest, but her foster also says she is the most graceful despite her vision in only one eye while the other never fully developed. So, here they are, loving and gentle, no longer frightened and no longer cold...after all, their hair has grown back in! (posted 3/19/17, PK, N/A)
