Sophie was the only surviving puppy from a litter of 9. We adopted her at 3 days old.
My husband is retired so he took on the task of being "Mr. Mom" getting up every 2 to 3 hours to bottle feed and comfort Sophie.
She is now thriving and at 5 weeks old has grown to almost 6 pounds! We are totally in love with this little face and are so happy she has a place in our family.
