When I decided to hand raise Mia's remain two puppies I knew it was going to mean being woken in the middle of the night for feedings but after just three days and three nights I am completely wiped. I don't know how I am going to manage to keep doing this for the next however many weeks before they start eating on their own. I did read online though that after a few weeks, two I think it was, they might start sleeping through the middle of the night feeding. I live in hope!
It doesn't help that Matthew and I are continuing with out nightly battles for sleep. Friday night/Saturday morning the puppies woke me at 3:30. I fed them and went back to sleep only to have Matthew wake me at 4 a.m. That was the end of sleep for that night.
They are really cute though. (I have pictures but I'll have to post them tomorrow since I haven't downloaded them yet.) My mother named the larger one Brutus and I named the smaller one Monster. I have every intention of selling them once they are old enough but I figured I had to call them something in the mean time.
Well, I am going to go to bed and try to get a few hours of sleep before we start again.
