Clementine and Baby Flannery
November 10, 2009

It has been a difficult few weeks for our rescue organization beginning when one of our recent puppy mill rescues Clementine, unknowingly gave birth to a premature litter while in foster care, while her foster mom was at work. You can imagine her shock when she came home to a crate of squealing little pug puppies.

Clem gave birth to her litter alone, without any medical or professional support. Since then it has been a bumpy roller coaster ride to try and save as many as we we could. Unfortunately, only one pup from Clem's litter survived, little Flannery who was so tiny and underdeveloped he was unable to move around or feed on his own.

For now we are focusing on the positive, Flannery is growing stronger every day and we are all very touched and inspired by what a wonderful mama Clementine is!

Straight from the nursery - here are some new pics of mama and baby pug.

Hmmm, I wonder how Plum would feel if I came home with a little boy pug like Flannery....you know it's only a matter of time :)

How sad for all the other puppies. Flannery is adorable, and the mama nuzzling baby is the most precious picture ever!

Plum would love it!

Plum would indeed love it.

And having a younger pug makes the older one more active which in turn keeps them healthier which translates to a longer life.
We have a 13 yo 6yo 3yo and a 2yo. A diet and the 3 and 2 yo has slimed Lola 6yo from 20+ pounds down to a swelt 17# and she is much more active and not winded after doing stairs. and they all keep emily on her toes which is good excercise and when it is too much for her she gives the look and they know to back off.

So go ahead get that pup even as a foster and see if it works out.

A shock is right. I'm sorry she lost the others little ones. Flannery is so sweet. I know where he will be soon if she thinks about it long enough. No, on second thought, just do it!

Oh Poor Clem and her puppies. That is so sad. The amount of work the rescuers are doing is incredible. Kudos to them.

I don't know what Plum would think, he is small enough she shouldn't feel threatened by him.
I would love a new pug puppy.. I just don't have any room. :)
