Abigail is really the best mother doggy we have all ever seen but… she often makes us gag that’s for sure! Motherhood to the extreme, puppies are 6 weeks and a few days old, usually mommies stop eating poop at approx 5 weeks when the poop is solid and the puppies are eating and drinking but… Abigail still likes to gobble it all down and at times I’ve seen a few volunteers gag at the whole process Ha! Ha! Ha! Well, at least the room is clean for us when we go in there, except for a few pipis on the paper, there is never poop to pick up lol. OK, I know it’s gross but really had to share this as we’ve never – even seen this before!! Our doggies also love their Kuranda Beds – thank you to those who have donated a bed to one of our rescues!
Brought 9 of Isis’ puppies and 4 of Abigail’s puppies to the vet’s for their check-ups and DA2PP shots. All were given thumbs up, Isis puppies are approx 7 weeks so ready for adoption next weekend and Abigail’s babes will be ready March 15th. Come visit us to meet them – they will surely go pretty fast!
Picked up Philomena and although she was shy with the everyone at the clinic, they thought she was very sweet. She is now recovering from her spay at home. Juno was a bit stressed and banged his tail somehow so he has cream for it although it’s not that bad, still needs to heal properly. He is also recovering nicely at NARC. Now for the 13 puppies on saturday for their first DA2PP – that should be entertaining Ha! Ha! Ha!
The Canada Border Services Agency, Detector Dog Training Program Instructors have just sent us payment for Manoushka which means SHE PASSED! She had left with them in September to start their 90 day training in October and has now officially become a one of their work dogs. Good luck my girl, I knew you could do it and become a wonderful work dog!
Beenie was a bit scared at the vet’s last night so a hookworm fell from her behind on the table during her check-up! How that happened without pooing is a mystery but it saved us from having to do a poop sample! Due to this, the vet prescribed Drontal for her and Bo and they also received their check-up, Rabies and DA2PP. They will be ready for a loving home this weekend although we suggest another dose of Drontal or similar medications in 14 days. They are both so sweet and loving, very calm for 3 months olds! Tiffany’s two puppies went for their 2nd DA2PP and check-up, thumbs up for the girls again! They weren’t ready for their rabies yet, only 10 weeks old so far!
We are going to the vet’s tonight with Bo the Golden Lab and Beenie the Black Field Lab for their 1st DA2PP and check-up tonight. Also bringing the 2 girls we have left from Tiffany’s litter back for their second shots tonight. Then we have Juno and Philomena going for their surgeries, dropping them off on Wednesday, Juno for his neuter and Philomena for her spay, rabies and DA2PP. And saturday morning will be quite busy, bringing Abigail’s 4 puppies for their 1st DA2PP as they are turning 6 weeks and also bringing Isis’ 9 puppies for their 1st DA2PP. Car will certainly be full of little ones – too cute but will be leaving us shortly after their shots. Come and claim your puppy this weekend so that in 2 weeks time you have the one you want!
Wow, they are growing fast! Abigail’s puppies are already 5 weeks tomorrow, guess we have to go to the vet’s the following week (at 6 weeks) for their first DA2PP. Isis’ 9 puppies are also same age so we’ll have 13 to bring to the vet’s shortly for shots, check-up, etc…. Definitely will need funds for this gang needing shots! If you can help with a monetary donation, you can do so by sending a cheque to NARC, 4388 Navan Road, Navan, Ontario, K4B 1H9. You can also pay through paypal or directly with our vet, Blackburn Animal Hospital who also accepts credit card payments. Thank you everyone for your support!

Our big boy went to the vet’s last night to have his stitches removed, he did an exceptional job and sat there like a big boy while our vet removed every stitch. He was given a thumbs up, no more follow up examinations, some massaging required to spread the water fluid that build up in one leg but normal enough. No more pain medications or antibiotics so I dropped him off with his new family. Yep, our foster home has decided to adopt Rex so he is now living with his new family – so happy for our boy. He gave me a bit of a hard time and actually lost a kilogram in weight being he hadn’t eaten much the first few days after surgery but all ends well… he certainly got his appetite back in the end and was running around in the fresh snow last night before heading to our vets.
We are in need of dog and puppy food. Our dogs eat “Beneful” (beef or chicken) or “Pedigree Vitality +” and our puppies and lactating mothers are eating “IAMS for puppies, orange bag 1-24 months”.
We received and installed these new and fabulous crates and are hoping to eventually get these spacious housing for all the dogs at NARC, fitting in a bed for them. So, that being said, we are looking to purchase kuranda beds for our doggies, those that wish to buy one as a donation can go to http://kuranda.com/donate, select Navan Animal Rescue and follow the steps. The beds should be delivered directly to us! Thank you again for your support with our multitude of changes throughout the years but as they say… Rome wasn’t built in a day and yes, we are constantly improving for the sake of our fur-babies.
