Hand Rearing Puppies.

Question:

Last week,Suzy my little Jack Russell bitch gave birth to 8 puppies,though today when i returned home from work i found she had passed away,I guess the strain of pregnancy and rearing the pups had been too much for her little body to cope,she was 15 months old and little more than a pup herself and had become pregnant during her first season,much to my dismay.

The pups are now 8 days old and their eyes are still closed,i am doing as best i can by feeding them with cows milk for now,though any advice regarding what i should be feeding them in the absence of their mother would be gratefully appreciated as i am feeling lost right now.

Thankyou in advance.
