This is a sad story, but I thank you ahead of time for read it. About 4 or 5 weeks ago, a very pregnant and very malnourished stray started coming around. She needed help, so we started feeding her. She had her puppies in a drain culvert under the road near our house three weeks ago this weekend. We left the puppies there with her for two weeks, then one day last week my wife walked up there and saw that one of them was poking its head out. We were afraid that they would wander into the road, so we moved the five puppies and mama into our barn. We lined a crate with a blanket and the floor is covered with hay. They've been living there for over a week now with mom coming and going. Tonight, mom got hit by a car. She was a good mama. The puppies are fat and healthy. They play well together and are walking around getting into everything. As of about an hour ago, they live with their crate and blanket in my bathroom. Our boxer is spade and we've never raised puppies this young. I read online to get milk replacer and feed them puppy food mixed with water and blended to the consistency of oatmeal, so I'll be at Petsmart when they unlock tomorrow morning. We're willing to do whatever we need to do to make sure the puppies are healthy and cared for. I guess I just really want some advice from people who have done this before. What should I be looking for? What else should we be thinking about? How about vet visits? Flea control? I don't know anything about this stuff. Our boxer is about 4 years old now. She was 9 weeks when we bought her from a breeder and I read so many good posts and pieces of advice on this forum when we were just starting out, so I know you are good people who care about their dogs. Any advice you have for me is very welcomed. Thanks for your time.
