**EXTENDED FAMILY ARRIVES**
On Friday 6th February, a heartfelt phone call was made after the
Secretary of Midland Border Collie Club lost her bitch Lucy after
an emergency c-section leaving 5 orphaned puppies.
As Emma had only had the 2 puppies the decision was made to try &
help Lucy's puppies by trying Emma as a Foster Mum.
This was quite nerve racking as not only was this Emma's first ever
litter but mine also. I so wanted Emma to accept these puppies as her
own to give them the very best possible start in life after such a tradgedy.
The puppies arrived & after careful measures & introductions the
puppies were then placed in with Emma & her 2 puppies.
Thankfully, after 5 minutes of all the puppies
being placed into the whelping box, Emma was feeding the new babies!
Emma has made me so very proud in accepting these babies & being
such a brilliant Mum to ALL of them.
I alway's knew Emma had a very special quality about her &
this wonderful act has proved it to me even more so.
A special thank you must go to Lyn Norton & Tony Blick for entrusting
Lucy's puppies with Emma.
May Lucy now run free at Rainbow Bridge.

All too quickly & the puppies were 4 weeks old and it was time for them
to return home to Lyn & Tony.
To say that all of this was an eye opener is an understatement!!
Emma was such a natural, fantastic Mum to ALL of the puppies ~
she made me so very proud.
