A mother’s whole world revolves around her babies from the moment she lays eyes on them for the first time, so when one Oregon dog lost her seven newborn babies in a tragic barn fire, she was understandably lost without them.
Earlier this week, there was a fire at Christine Nelson’s barn that killed four goats, two pigs, and seven newborn puppies that belonged to Nelson’s great Pyrenees/border collie mix.”She’s just been so sad and so heartbroken,” said Nelson. “She just goes down to the barn and just sits there and tries to look for them still. She quit eating.”
Nelson knew nothing could replace her dog Daisy’s puppies, but they had to try and help heal her broken heart and find her a new purpose again. The family decided to share their story to hopefully find an orphaned baby animal that needed a foster mom.
Luckily, Deanna Murphy-Vest heard about Daisy’s tragic loss and told her mom, whose dog had died in surgery while trying to birth two last puppies after delivering eight puppies. “It has been a huge endeavor of everyone pulling together to keep these eight little beauties going with around-the-clock feedings,” Murphy-Vest wrote. “My mom is exhausted.”
Murphy-Vest reached out to Nelson and explained that their puppies lost their mother, and they decided to introduce Daisy to the puppies this past Friday to see if she would foster them. As they had hoped, Daisy instantly bonded with them.
“They are border collie puppies. Daisy is half border collie. Daisy is in heaven!” Nelson said. “It’s hard to see them go anywhere because we are very attached,” Murphy-Vest wrote, “but we know how our momma dog would have felt if she was in this dog’s situation.”
