Ziva

There is a very young puppy in a new crate in my bedroom, screaming her head off.

I have never used a crate before but after four years of having to keep getting up to let Pereg out due to her epilepsy and medication, I thought crate.  

Two years it took me to find Pereg, this time just two days, and she was brought round on Sunday more-or-less take her or she will be thrown away like the others.  Stupid people not bothering to get their bitches spayed but do not start me on that subject.

So, Ziva arrived.  Never seen her before but hey, who cares?  

She is not a replacement for my beloved Pereg, she is to honour Pereg's memory.

My vet sent his assistant vet to check her yesterday and she said what I thought - she is maximum one month old but is happy eating tiny bits of raw food.  Goes out and pees on command and is a right shrieker.  

The vet who checked her is horrified that I raw feed, but it turned out she is vegan.  I mean what do dogs eat?  

Ziva is here and Ziva will stay.  Shrieker though she is.
Toddy

Four weeks old ?
You can buy nappies that will fit a puppy even if they're meant for human babies.
I'd buy a baby sling and use the nappies. A four week old puppy ought to be in almost constant contact with something warm blooded.
They do train quickly too, especially if you're with them a lot of the time. Guide dog puppies can be toilet trained on command at five months old; I managed that and I'm not really a doggy person, I'm sure that someone who is would do better.

If the nappies sound expensive then they're easily made from old woolen jumpers or from fleece fabric. Just soak and boil wash and they're reuseable.  The wool felts, but you want it to do so.
Like babies, change often and don't leave them lying wet or dirty.
It's only for a few weeks while you carry her around until she's of a more usual age to leave her mother.

Glad to hear you have another furry friend Juli. They are such company but you're right, Ziva is not a replacement for darling Pereg. What type of dog is she? Would love to see a photo of her. Hopefully she'll stop shrieking when she settles. When I got Polly (at one year old) she didn't bark at all for the first three months I had her and I thought I had a dog who didn't know how to "talk" but boy has she made up for it since then.
Seabird

I'm so glad you've got a new 'baby' Juli. As you say, not a replacement for Pereg, But it sounds like this little one needs a home, and it's with you.
Juli

She is very sweet - goes pee pee and kaki on command outside although I do have puppy pads indoors.

So far I have only gone across the road to the little store with her [apart from going to the store at the Dog Pension to buy a bed and a crate for her on Sunday] and of course she is on my lap because I cannot walk.

I do not know.  I was told 6 weeks but I thought a month, and Michal, the assistant vet who came here and checked her over yesterday also said one month.  

She does not cry much but when she does she shrieks!  

And whatever she was fed on before, and I have no idea, she is now raw fed and scoffs it.  Not much but she knows it is FOOD - and she is rather cute.

I think I will keep her!
horace

Good luck with her
sod

So happy to hear this Im sure Pereg would be happy too. Waiting for photos. We have found with puppys a hot water bottle in cloth with tick tock clock like a heart beat helps them carm and sleep. She sounds just right  as she rides on your lap  
Juli

The squeaker went to bed in her crate last night without complaint, and slept until about 5am  then squeaked and woke me.  I took her out and she pee'd and the puppy pad in her crate was dry so I reckon she is going to be easy to train.  

I must have known not to put Pereg's toys away - I just left them in the plastic boxes [she did have rather a lot] as Ziva has already taken out some that she fancies.  

She also seems to be aware of me switching my chair on - that is what I was frightened of, being scared of running over her as my chair is very heavy, but she moves as soon as I switch it on so so far so good.

Ziva.  Ziva the squeaker.  Just what I did not want.  A very young puppy.  But she must have wanted me.

She does not like going in the crate during the day but is fine on it at at night.  It is so new for me as I have never used a crate before.  Lexi slept on my slippers beside the bed until she could get up on it, and I hoiked Pereg up on the bed when she arrived.  One each side of me until Lexi died in her sleep.  

Ziva?  

Little squeaker.  But knows outside is for pee's and poos.  

And she will only eat tiny bits of raw food.    Dis dawg is not stupid.

She just squeaks.

MrsWW

Oh Juli, she is adorable! Has she got German Shepherd in her?
gapcap

I thought she looked german shepherd as well, whatever she is, she is absolutely gorgeous
Yorkshire Geordie

Very adorable but she's decidedly sticking her neck out by sleeping with a giraffe.  
Martyn
Juli

No GSD - she is smaller that it looks as that bed is the smallest one ever.

The giraffe is a Braidz [think that is a Kong make?] and her head is on a honking goose - not sure what make.  She just took those from Pereg's toys.  Oh, and it looks like she has a bit of a chew stick with her.

Oh, and a bit of black plastic something I used to jam the door open with but no idea where she found it.

She has a harness which matches her collar, ditto leash, but she is much too young to take out.

And she eats RAW!
Rena

She is so tiny, and perfect!! Looks like a great match to me . Congratulations, Juli! (I love that you are feeding her RAW, that's the absolute best diet for her, imo) Congrats again
Juli

Yes.  RAW.  She will not touch kibble, is OK with tinned - I always had some as emergency for Pereg - she is not too sure about vegetables although she has eaten some but for her FOOD is raw.

Ox lung - I just cut it up with scissors and scoff scoff down it goes.  Also turkey gizzard.  She is too young for bones but then she is too young for raw, but try telling her that.  She already knows when I am cutting up her food and sits looking at me.  I am limited with what I can get - and it is human food, not dog food, the raw I mean.  Like Pereg, she will have it raw and I will cook it for myself.

She knows where the water dish is and has only fallen in it once...

...and no, I did NOT want a puppy but what was I supposed to do?  Say no and then worry about what would happen to her?
Yorkshire Geordie

Have patience, Juli.
You will both learn from the "bonding" process.

I had never used a crate before but...  but... Ziva sleeps in it and does not pee or poo in it, and this is her this morning...  in her bed having taken two of Pereg's toys.  Her crate is in my bedroom with some new toys I had bought for Pereg but had hot given her yet.

such a little love so very cute.

Problem - take her outside and she goes run run far faster than I cope with on my crutches and have already had a bad fall outside, which was very embarrassing because I could not get up.  In front of my bungalow?  Two guys in a truck were passing,  saw, stopped  and it took both of them to get me up and inside, and no I am not heavy [somewhere around 52 kilos] but was a dead weight because I have such limited use of my limbs, so now I put her leash on to take her out and she just lays down and refuses to move.

She is also fixated on me so follows me indoors which is tricky as moving around on my chair is tricky as the doorways are narrow and too many angles, so I try to manage with my crutches and not on my chair.  And she bites ankles.  And fingers.  And sits in front of the refrigerator shrieking for food.

Oh and I apologise for the dust on the basket under the chair behind her bed.  It has squeakies in it that Pereg discarded and Ziva has already hidden that large honking goose somewhere.

Who feeds a month old puppy on raw food?  And how does she know that it comes out of the refrigerator?  She has yet to discover Pereg's freezer which is where the raw is kept until I take some out to defrost.
MrsWW

Oh no, hope you didn't injure yourself when you fell x

Don't know what to suggest about the lead/lying down issue. Your garden isn't fenced in is it? Perhaps have a dedicated rope/chain outside then you could take her out on your lap maybe, attach her to the rope/chain then tell her to do her business? I'm lucky here in that my garden is fenced all round so I can let Polly out loose to do her business. Not sure what else to suggest.
Juli

Yes I hurt, I mean hurt bad it but could have been worse.  I cannot get my yards fenced in which is why Lexi and then Pereg were always on tethers so they could not get onto the pavement.

Ziva is too young, too small, and I do not have any thin cord to use as a tether.  So if she pees a teaspoon somewhere?  Who cares.  And being raw fed she only does tiny poos.

And for the first time since I had to have my beloved Pereg euthanised - and I had no choice - I am now able to listen to my music again.
Juli

My baby Ziva has gone.

On 1 May I was rushed into hospital with a major and life-threatening allergic angioedema attack and the woman from whom Ziva came agreed to look after her.

I got a message that Ziva was crying for me so after maybe four days I discharged myself from hospital against medical advice.

My neighbour got a taxi to come and pick me up to take me home, then went to get Ziva but Ziva had "vanished".

The police were involved as Ziva was registered with my Vet as belonging to me therefore they classed it as property theft.

I just classed it as someone has just thrown my baby Ziva away.

In spite of notices put up offering a very large reward there has been no information as to what happened to her, and the police think that the woman just threw that little scrap of my baby Ziva into the middle of the nearest agricultural field.

I could not post before as the whole thing is just too raw.  First having had to have my beloved Pereg euthanised on 1 April, then losing baby Ziva.

Devastated is not the word.
horace

I hope you find her good luck  
sod

First time I looked I was so upset I disn't know what to say is not it feels so much worse for you, just hope you find her  
Juli

It has taken this time to accept that my baby Ziva has gone.  The police drove all round the Moshav where she was supposed to be looked after, all round this Moshav and also round the nearest other two Moshavim - they took it far more serious than I thought they would and it was my neighbour, not I, who called them about Ziva.

They drove round and round until dark but Ziva was not found.  Being so tiny she was probably just thrown into the middle of one of the agricultural fields because the woman could not cope with her crying.  I do not know and that was what has been eating away at me.  The only consolation I have is the knowledge that she could not have survived more than 12 hours maximum, most of which she would have been asleep.  She would have woken, confused, cried and then slept.

But if I ever get my hands on that woman...
MrsWW

Oh Juli, it has really upset me to read this. I will pray that Ziva is found well and returned to you xx

As for that woman . . . . Ggrrrrrrr, what a horrible person she sounds to be if she has done what you suspect.
Juli

Ziva will never come back but if all goes well then Tikva [it means "hope"] will be coming home to me in about two weeks.

Her dog mom is a Doxie - 6 years old, first litter, unplanned [a local small dog somehow got in] and had eight pups.  Four of each.  They say a month old, I say 3 weeks maximum, but I will bring Tikva home in two weeks.

This is us at their home this morning.  Needless to say I had scrubbed my hands before I went into the room where they are, and Momma dog came out of the box when I sat on the floor to make friends, before I even tried to even look at her babies.

Toddy

A beautiful puppy, but I wonder if you are being wise ?

Would not an older, calm, and sensible dog not perhaps suit your health and lifestyle a little better ?
One who could be left at home with a visitor coming in to feed and take her/him for a walk if you were not around for a few days again.

Older dogs have a lot of love and life in them

Best wishes,
Mary
Juli

My original intention, after having lost my beloved Pereg, was to rescue an older dog.  I discussed it with my Vet and he was of the opinion that a very young puppy would be far easier to be trained to get used to me being a wheelie.  Ziva instinctively knew that when she heard my chair being switched on it meant she had to either get out of the way or sit and wait to be picked up and put on my lap.  

It is almost impossible to find an older dog to adopt as unwanted dogs are just dumped - eventually  picked up by the dog catchers - go to the local pound - and if not claimed within five days they are euthanised.  In addition, an older dog might be a wheel chaser and might not be able to cope with a wheelie owner having never come across one before.  And my Vet, who has known me for many years now, having thought about it, decided that a young puppy would be best.  Which is why Ziva came into my life.

It was nobody's fault I had an emergency hospital admission.  It just happened.  The fault was that the person from whom Ziva came from and who agreed to take her back to look after her,  and then just dumped her somewhere where she could not be found.  Had I had more time, I would have contacted my Vet and he would have looked after her, but emergency hospital admissions are just that - emergencies, and sensible thoughts go out of the window.

Young puppies that are accidents, as Lexi, Pereg and then Ziva were, are usually dumped, especially bitch puppies.  Nobody wants them, nobody gets them spayed - so there are more and more unwanted puppies that need homes.  And just as I gave Lexi, Pereg and Ziva a home, so I can give the new baby Tikva a home.  Like the others she will not be let loose to run around as most dogs are here, and she will be spayed when she is old enough, as Lexi and Pereg were and as Ziva would have been.

I obviously cannot guarantee my health but should anything happen then my Vet will look after Tikva in an emergency.  And once she has had all her shots then of course the Pension will always take her.

Good luck with her

to you both, she looks a little darling. We have found spayed  girls great my first ever working girl Meg is wonderful and so loving so   to you both from us all here
Juli

I brought Tikva home this morning.  Too young but momma dog was fed up and was running around outside and the other pups had already climbed out of the box  and were peeing and pooing everywhere.  

Tikva is tiny.  Not really a runt, just much smaller than the others.  OK, so maybe a runt.  But she could not get out of the box and I do not think she would have survived.   So I brought her home.  I got some milk replacement from my Vet plus puppy nursing bottles but as well as giving her milk every three hours I am already weaning her onto raw.  And she seems to be fine B"H - but there are no guarantees in life and Tikva is probably only 3 weeks old.

But she knows what puppy pads are for so pees on them.  Manages to climb out of her bed to pee on the puppy pad.  She also has one in her crate, where she will sleep in at night although how much sleep I will get, who knows, as she will wake me when she is hungry.  

She is just so tiny but she is showing signs of being easy to train..
sod

It sure will but there is something really strange about the whole story.  The "owner" of momma dog is, apparently, the "girlfriend" of the man who owns the house, the plot of land which has two other houses on it - also his - and some sort of I-do-not-know-what business on that plot of land.

The "girlfriend" came from Russia, with momma dog, which probably explains why I had never seen a Dachshund here before.  Tikva is definitely mostly Daxie but unless she does a Topsy and grows and grows, she will never be the size momma dog is, momma being a standard Dax.  

But tiny as she is, Tikva is the noisiest pup I have ever known, and she seems to be very happy.  I hope she will carry on thriving but whatever happens I know that I have done the best for her.

We are sure you have done the best for her

lost for words, looking at the pups we have here trying to fathom out how anyone could do such a thing.

Her teeth are just coming through.
MrsWW

Bless her, such a tiny and cute looking furry companion for you Juli. I hope she goes from strength to strength. Mind those little teeth too, I'll bet they're like little needles.
Rena

She's absolutely, perfectly, adorable, Juli!! No worries about her chatter ... You'll always know where she is
Juli

I thought Ziva was tiny but Tikva is far smaller.  I am fully aware that I brought her home at far too young an age, but this way she has a chance.  Had I left her I doubt she would have done.  She still might not make it but she is being fed on puppy milk substitute plus I have started her on raw, chewing up meat and fish for her, although she only eats tiny bits.

She also likes cottage cheese and bio yoghurt.  Tiny amounts which she will eat from a small plastic teaspoon.  She has no idea about lapping from a saucer.

I worry about the other puppies in the litter but what could I do?  I have rescued Tikva and am doing my best for her, which includes crawling around trying to find her from her screams when she has gone walkabout and is lost somewhere in the bungalow.

I guess I am stuck with her now but I promise that I will do everything I can to help her survive.

You are the best mother she could have

I am doing my best, I really am.  The whole thing is a bit odd and I am not prepared to discuss it.

This morning I bought some [human baby] powdered rice and powdered whole grains [both  marked as sufficiently nutritional with all necessary vitamins and minerals] to make a sort of gruel, and apart from walking through it [just a tiny bit mixed with some puppy milk substitute] she decided than it was yummy nom noms.

She was far too young to have left her dam but six days later seems to be doing OK.  

I think.
Rena

You are doing a right fine job of it Juli. Maybe you could add some probiotics (in the form of plain, unsweetened yogurt?), it might help with her digestive processes. Just a thought
Juli

She had some bio yoghurt Thursday afternoon and  argued when I would not give her more even though I thought she had had too much,  went across to the little store about an hour later with her on my lap, and she opened her mouth and it all came out.  No gagging - it just came out, all over me!

It was 1.5% bio yoghurt and either too much fat or she just scoffed too much.  Anyhow she spend the rest of the day mostly sleeping but not asking for any food so I did not give her any.

She did the usual scream up when put in her crate for the night so I gave in and took her into bed again - for the last time.  Well at 2am she started climbing over my head and chewing on my ear and I thought enough was enough, put her back in the crate, and went back to bed and ignored her screeching  and she eventually went to sleep.  

Tikva has been here with me for eight days.  She possibly needs worming but is far too young for even her first puppy shot.  My vet will not come here at the moment and will not let me take her there as they have a bad case of Parvo and think it is everywhere in town at the moment although have no idea if it is on the Moshav.   I can take her out to the shop across the road while she is on my lap, not letting anyone touch her [which I would not do in any case] - and pour bleach over my wheels before I come in.

And anyone who wants to come in will have to walk through the tray of bleach outside the door first.

Having lost first Pereg and then baby Ziva in the space of one month, I will do everything I can not to lost tiny Tikva.
Juli

UPDATE

Tikva has grown and gained wait but is still very small.  She looks like a Doxie but with a short back, longer legs [no turned out front feet], smaller ears and a shorter nose.  Which does not sound like a Doxie does it, but she is definitely half Doxie.

And oh does she have teeth - did not have any when she came here but she bites.  She is also definitely a houuuuuuuuuund as she walks around the place, nose to the ground, and one particular ice-cream van chimes she HOOOWWWWWLS.  Does not bark but is a right little growler when she does not get her own way.

Second puppy shot due next week and much as I want Ram to see her and check her over it looks like Michal is going to be her primary vet.  And she does not want me to take her to the surgery as they recently had a bad case of Parvo, so Michal will come here.  Apparently they only need two puppy shots now, then yearly boosters, but although Tikva has had two worm pills [well, bits of them] she will need more monthly until she is 6 months old as it is doubtful her dam was ever wormed.

Then - well, four weeks after her second puppy shot,  she is big enough it will be time for rabies shot and microchip.  I just do not know if she will be big enough.  She weight enough but is still so tiny.  Definitely takes after her sire, one of those "small dogs from across the road" ie what everyone calls minpins and I call rats.

Raw.  Oh yes, she is fully on raw now.  Frozen chicken necks?  Small halves of frozen chicken backs [I buy fresh, break up and freeze individually.

Strange puppy.  She only wants three meals a day.  First is actually a human toddler food sort of like porridge - I think it is Stage 4 which is for toddlers up to age 4.  No salt, no sugar, but has loads of different vegetables etc.  Second meal is meat meat meat with defrosted mixed vegetables, and last meal is a bone one.

She does not get treats - I might be odd but I do not believe in training using treats.  Tikva is not interested in treats of biscuits - when she wants food she wants Food.

I still worry about Ziva but what can I do?

And I miss my epi Pereg more than I ever thought I would.  This was drawn from a photograph and is now framed on the wall.  

Juli

Sorry - this is missing the dates that were written to the side.



This was hand-drawn in graphite - I think the original photograph has Pereg wearing her harness but the artist removed that so this is the final picture.

But I wanted her epi tag in colour.
darkbrowneggs

Lovely drawing - really captures her character.  Its sad loosing a friend
Juli

This was supposed to be a picture of my avatar, minus her harness.  But the artist asked me to send as many photographs as I had, especially those without her harness and to leave it to her to draw what she thought showed Pereg's soul.  And it does.  

It was hand drawn.  The artist spent nearly a week on this until she was satisfied - as was I.

But she had to have her epi tag in colour, because epi was her name.
sod

They are fantastic pictures look as though she will move   We never forget them that is what makes so wonderful having them in our family
Tikva sounds a little fighter and so you two will get on great.

  Thank you for the updates please keep it up as we think of you and love these   to you both.
Juli

If you look at that drawing and then at my avatar, you should be able to see the difference, slight though it is.  The artist wanted to catch her soul and she did.  It was drawn on A4 paper which has been sealed, if that is the word, in plastic.  And now framed and on the wall.

Heck, I seem to have forgotten how to spell.  Tikva has gained weight, not wait     and she has just removed the mattress from her bed, having first thrown out all the toys, and is now trying to turn the plastic bed over.

She also thinks that puppy pee pads in the salon are to be played with and the one in her crate to be scrunched up and slept on, leaving the rest of the crate for peeing in.  But she will not poo in her crate, on no, she wakes me up so I can let her out and she rushes through the bungalow into the salon...

...and poos on the doormat.  Luckily being now just about fully raw fed, her poos are small and firm and easy to pick up and chuck down the throne.

Yeah well, she is half Doxie and "they" do say that Doxies are difficult to train.  

Maybe one day...
Juli

sod

WOW how cute she looks   how big she is Thank you for that. How are things going for you?
Juli

Tikva is still small and although she has grown I do not think she will get much bigger than she is now, but has grown and gained more weight than she looks - if that makes sense.  She is just small - and evil!

No cuddle-pup is she, more a bitey-pup and a stubborn little thing.  Very difficult to train but from what I have heard that stubbornness is a Doxie trait.

It was also impossible to take her out until she had had her rabies shot [and was microchipped], both of which she had to have done about 3-4 weeks after her final puppy shots  and the new Vet, Michal, came to give her those - and she then got onto the Local Authority Vet to give the rabies and microchip her.  Private vets can microchip but the LA Vet is responsible for rabies shots, which are registered under my ID number, as is the microchip, and which classes as a dog licence.  

Ram, who always looked after Pereg, has "handed over" Tikva's care to Michal, who he recently employed as a second vet at the surgery.  But I would like Ram to see her, plus I want her weighed on their scales - and I still do not have her medical card as I have not been to collect it.  I just have the dates of all her shots on the computer, plus I have the bar code stickies from her microchip which has to go on her card and on her notes.

Vadim, the LA Vet will have registered the chip number and her rabies shot with the Ministry of Agriculture but it still needs to be on her card and her notes.  And typical of Vadim, as he did with Lexi and then Pereg, does not charge me for either the rabies shot or microchip.  He did once say that he respects responsible owners and there are too few about.  Dogs/bitches that are neutered or spayed get a reduced rate if they have had a current rabies shot and are also chipped, the Min of Ag  subsidising it.

Vadim is not a small animal vet but is in charge of animals [cows for milk] and poultry and eggs for human consumption.  He also has to confirm that any meat products brought into the country are fit for human consumption and are Kasher, but he is responsible for rabies shots.  As far as I know he has a "surgery" for a couple of hours once a month at the LA for people to take their dogs for the rabies shots, but apparently it is rare anyone turns up.    He just turns up here when he has to check on any cows/poultry on the Moshav and I never know when that will be.

Usually it takes me about three telephone calls and then he just turns up.  This time I had not called him - either Ram or Michal did.  But at least I know that Tikki is covered and is legal, which is so important.

Anyhow, even though I take her outside in the front yard it has been, and still is so hot that she will not stay out for more than a few minutes, and no way does she seem to understand that she should pee and poo outside.  

So far she has not met any other dogs but she is fine with people, especially so so with small children who seem to turn up in droves to see her and she lets them pet her and no way will she even show her teeth.

She will not nip or bite them - it is me who she bites!

She is also [self-taught] learning to tell me if someone is at the door, because being hearing impaired I do not always hear if someone knocks.  No bells or knockers here, people rap on the door with their knuckles or just stand outside and yell.

Tikki is hard work.  She drives me nuts at times but what would I do without her?
Juli

Tikki Tikva is now 5 months old.  Fully raw fed and although still not very big, weighs 5.30 kilos.

sod

Thank you for the loverly photo   she is so very cute. Hope things are going well for you and her.
Juli

Tikki Tikva is doing fine - still as evil as ever at times but I still love her.  My arms and legs do not though!

I wish I could manage to take a photograph of her standing as so far they all look like she has short Doxie legs.  Yes her front paws have now turned out Doxie style and it is obvious that she is half Doxie, albeit a rather odd shaped one!

Still not a cuddle pup but she is a very happy pup and that is really all that matters.  And she loves going into her night crate now - all I have to say is "bikkie, bed" and she is there in an instant!

Will not pee or poo in her crate even though I line it with a puppy pad.  No, she eeps until I wake to let her out so she can rush through to do whatever on a puppy pad.  And then rushes back into the bedroom and her crate, waiting for another small bikkie and then more sleep.

But she still does not like going outside.  Either for walks or for P&Ps.
Juli



She was spayed on 23 November.  Much too young but both Ram and Michal thought it best as she now goes outside by herself on a tether.  She weighed 6 kilos but is very small - just rock solid muscle and bones.

Oh, and she tore off the pj's the first night.
