Dog In Germany Gives Birth To 17 Puppies

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A dog in Germany gives birth to 17 puppies, and now the proud owner is showing off her new additions.
The 4-year-old mother, Etana, gave birth to the puppies in a town just north of Berlin.
Her owner had to feed the puppies five times a day for the first four weeks because their mother did not have enough milk."
The good news is that all the puppies are in good health, and that  the mom will soon be fixed, although it`s like closing the barn door after the horses have bolted. I wish dog owners would neuter/spay their pets -- there are way too many dogs and cats and not enough pet lovers to take care of them all. 
I applaud the owner Ramon Wegemann for feeding the tiny babies five times a day for the first four weeks because the exhausted mom didnt h ave enough milk.  
I have a difficult time keeping up with the antics of my two dogs and two cats, I can`t imagine what`s it like to take care of 17 puppies. Thre is no way thatWegemann can take care of so many puppies, let`s hope that he will be able to find good homes for them.
