A stray dog named Magnolia was born under a lucky star.
She, deeply pregnant, wandered the streets of Fredricksburg, Texas.
Cold weather was coming to Texas, and she would not have been able to feed future babies.
But she was lucky – she got into an amazing loving family, to Aubrey Morgan and her husband.
Two weeks before the possible birth, Aubrey had a cozy corner for labor ready in the house – a soft and secluded place, there were medicines in case something went wrong.
“The biggest thing I learned,” Aubrey says, “is that puppies need to stay warm.”
Otherwise, they will not start eating and die out.
It was getting extremely cold in Texas. And then the state was covered by a terrible snow storm.
The electricity went out, and the dog gave birth to its first puppy.
The first puppy was born, and he was rapidly cooling down.
Aubrey and her husband moved Maggie into the guest bathroom, which had a steam shower.
They turned on all the taps and turned on the hot water.
They put hot water bottles for the dog, but it was still too cold.
When the fourth puppy was born, Aubrey realized that all the measures taken were not helping.
The babies were still too cold.
Then the husband took the car out of the garage, started the engine and began to warm it up, preparing to receive the replenishment of the family.
At two a.m., the girl carried out the mother and puppies wrapped in blankets, loaded them into the back seat and closed the door very quickly.
But by dinner it became clear that it was impossible to endure any longer.
It was getting too cold — even for children, not just for newborn puppies.
Then the family decided to head to the neighboring area, to Aubrey’s mother.
The family stayed until Friday, when the accident was finally fixed and their own home was just as comfortable.
What it took for these people not to panic in a cooling house, to deliver a dog and take care of the babies!
But Aubrey, when she took Magnolia from the shelter, solemnly promised that she would give her the best care.
And she kept her word, no matter what it cost her.
