Our family volunteered at the Humane Society of Williamson County as much as we could. One day, when my daughter and I were about to go home after volunteering, the foster coordinator asked us if we would consider fostering some puppies that had to be bottle-fed. We saw the puppies and there was just no way we could go home without them. They weren’t very tiny but they were extremely young and it was just like having a newborn infant again. I was getting up once or twice during the night to feed them. Our dog, Watson, seemed wary but he kept his distance and didn’t bother them – he just looked on curiously as the kids and I bottle fed the babies for a few weeks. We learned that puppy formula is rather expensive and puppies are messy eaters. We also learned how wonderful it is to give your love to foster pups.
