Oh no...writer's block! What to share? There's quite a bit going on but its much the same so I won't bore you with all the details. Well, maybe a little...
I never really shared a lot of information of Uma's arrival and c-section, but my friend Jen came with us to the c-section and she wrote about it in her blog. Thanks Jen--you are the best! And Jen, I was so glad you were there! You can read about it by going to her Bully Beat.
Uma is now 3 days old and she seems to be doing fine, great actually. Growing and gaining weight. I'm still unclear on Uma's coloring. At first I thought she was a brindle but now am thinking she may be a dark red with black tips on the end of her hair (we call it smut). Why "smut" I have no idea, but anyway, in a few more days I should be able to tell more. She has the most beautiful markings and I am SO in love with her already! Our little Uma.
Now the big kids are doing fantastic. I had to change up their pen a little bit yesterday (bigger space). I like to be in there with them when its gruel time so I can make sure everyone is eating and try to get them to use the potty pad. Now that is a challenge! hahaha Gotta be quick to catch them in the act and get them to the pad. Eventually they will figure it out. And the best part, I love it when they start crawling up into my lap! They are getting to that irresistibly cute age.
I got an idea for their drinking water from my friend Sandy and Kristie. They use the bottle type things that you use with gerbils/hamsters/etc., only bigger. So we set it up to see if we have any success with it, and they occasionally (by accident I think) drink from it. :-) Better than the bowls that constantly spill. Plus, can be a lifelong good way for them to drink when crated. We'll see if it works.
