HEHEHE....there are ways around this....

So it is day 2, about 24 hours since Zip met her little babies...and she has decided that cleaning butts is not something she wishes to do...

I feel bad for her, she didn't get to see them born,didn't get to clean them up ( which would have stimulated that instinct) and was in pain and I just threw these babies at her...no wonder she doesn't want to!

Well, I don't like doing it either...no one tells you those buggers can shoot pee UP IN THE AIR for goodness sake! And they poop and poop and poop. Icky. Gross...bleck....

Granted I don't understand why a momma would lick their butts...HOWEVER. I needed her to.

So.....my idea. Soft dog food....smear on puppy butts, she licks it off:

#1 shows her the behavior (and hopefully that maternal part that is missing will kick in)

#2 I would rather smear food on their asses than wipe them!

IT WORKED! WOO HOO!!

She licked everyone clean as a whistle...and after she was done she was checking butts!!!!!!!!!!!

YIPPEE FREAKING SKIPPY!!!!! THIS IS THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY DAY!

And yes...that is sad...very sad, another highlight....I got to shower!

I am so damn happy right now!!!!! Ah.....clean puppy butts.....God's little miracle :)
