New Puppy was born looking almost the same as the other pups...But she doesn't move her hind end very well. She struggles to move, but seems to be able to scoot herself around to nurse by using her front legs.
It's been tough for Naiada, and while the other pups start to walk, she is only able to use her front legs and drag her fused back legs behind them. She seems to get around, at least.
Naiada has been lethargic lately. She doesn't want to eat much, and isn't growing like the other pups. She sleeps a lot and watches the world with dull eyes.
It seems all Naiada has done lately is lay around and cry. She is unable to digest any food and her breath smells stale. The other pups stay away from her, and Naiada seems incredibly sad.
It has come the time to visit the Voodoo witch, living deep in the swamps, to make her immortal.
Naiad (from Greek naiein, "to flow"), in Greek mythology, one of the nymphs of flowing water—springs, rivers, lakes.
