My youngest dog had pups a few months ago. I thought I'd done everything to keep the male dogs out of their kennel but the one thing I hadn't counted on was one of them busting up through the floor. So, here I was with four rambunctious little pups that needed homes. I gave them away yesterday (much to my relief) and now my poor dog is still searching for them. It breaks my heart seeing her go through this. I know that she doesn't understand that they're gone. I've been cuddling with her and giving her a lot of hugs. I hope it helps ease her pain. I just hate seeing her going through this.

Any way you can bring the mother into the house for awhile? I've only had one dog that had pups and that's how I helped with her separation anxiety. She wasn't an outside dog, but she was not allowed in my bedroom at night. I let her sleep at the foot of my bed for a couple of weeks and she rebounded well.

She'll be OK!

Aww, so sorry to hear that, it must be tough, love her as much as you can, she does need it.

Peace, NRE.

That's what she's been getting. We've gone through this before but somehow this time is worse. I hope I can distract her enough to make her forget.
Thanks for the kind words, by the way. They're much appreciated.

I really wish I could. My friend's dog doesn't like other dogs. That's why I have mine in a kennel. Thanks.

Holy crap!!! That poor mum

Are you able to take her to see them so that she knows where they are?

I have been. She's been more or less attached to me every time I let them out to potty. Thanks for the kind words.

No I'm not able to. The pups are in another state.

In that case, Mum gets people food for a month!

Not to be mean,but spaying works wonders and you don't end up with unwanted pups. Helps keep the mother happy as she doesn't ever have any pups again to miss. There are places that will help out with cost if needed.You can look them up on line.

Thanks for the advice. I'm actually looking into that. I don't want her going through it again.

Yes she will. Treats always perk her up.

I've been through this.
Less so than the dog, I'm sure.
Give her love. She'll come back around.
It is a loss she will have to come to terms with.

Awwww, poor little Momma dog! Give her time. She'll come around eventually.

Is it your friends dog the one that contributed to the pups?

Even if not I think he/she should work with ya a bit to do what you can to help your pup.

Check you local shelter, I bet they have a day they do it for cheaper. I know the shelter I volunteer at does.

Avert her attention elsewhere, offer the fun things she likes to do, go to the park, etc, etc. Also, be mindful of activities that might stress out her body, likely still in weaning mode-sore belly as the milk production goes down.

Look for a local low cost clinic. Sometimes they have grants that can help people out immensely with spaying costs. In many places Combo and rabies vaccinations are required before or at the time of spaying.

Mentioning if you're not familiar(and don't mind this if you already have these done for her) but the combo shots are often cheaper if given at home. Please only administer these if familiar or know someone who is that can do them. The rabies shot runs about $15.00(after 1 year there's the 3 year and 5 years boosters).

Apologies as the advice applies to the US but maybe similar elsewhere would check into it, goodluck!

Here's an update: She's stopped crying and searching around. Things are back to normal. Treats, hugs, and cuddles work wonders.
