Puppy Ten: Daesha, Female, 10:48, 3.28 oz.
Daesha was so small at birth that she would have died were it not for Jorie’s persistence. She gave the tiny, limp puppy tiny heart compressions, swung her gently between the palms of her hands to get fluid out of her lungs, and coaxed her back to life!
Jorie hand fed her, and her equally tiny brother, Dragon, until they were ready to drink on their own. Jorie spent the first few nights in the whelping box with the puppies to make sure the littlest ones got the care they needed and didn’t get squashed by their much bigger siblings.
