Samantha is recovering well from her spay, she is healing at NARC now getting ready to move into her forever home on Thursday – lucky girl! We picked up an Australian Shepherd and her 8 puppies and spend the morning at the vet’s on saturday giving them all an ivermectin shot as they came in with scabies/mange and of course their DA2PP and Rabies for mom. Poor babies were itching to blood but we’ve worked hard to get them feeling comfortable. On top of medications, bathing them with medicated shampoo is also helping their skin heal. They are better now and I can now sleep well knowing they are no longer itchy and healing. Next appointment is on thursday with all of them for their second ivermectin shot! I understand we pick up death row dogs but they could have been given an ivermectin shot - Revolution or Multi-advantage to ease their pain!! They will never suffer again now that they have reached NARC! Well, mom will suffer from her spay but you know what I mean!
Went to the vet’s with Saber for his follow up examination and second DA2PP, vet gave him thumbs up, dermatitis is healed, cyst is also healed with the antibiotics that were given him so he is now ready for his loving home. I also brought Rascal and Pink for their second DA2PP and left Samantha for her spay, Rabies and DA2PP. Samantha is a golden retreiver that came in, she is amazing – so much so that everyone that met her last weekend wanted her. We are quite sure she is leaving us after her recovery and already have a potential adopter!
Forgot to say that I went to the vet’s with Lachlan on saturday morning for his Rabies, DA2PP and check-up. What a great boy, he was so calm and laid back with everyone there. He was getting his belly scratched while lying on the floor near my feet and basically stayed put for his check-up, temperature taken, shots and everything. What a wonderful dog – he is quite the big baby and really wants to be besides his human all the time. He did manage to get out of his collar when I tied him in the back of the SUV but stayed in the back during my drive to the vet’s, then on our way back he wasn’t able to get out of the collar so chewed the leash right off so he was loose again in the SUV – little bugger! So, we had to take extreme measures, he has a choke chain which I HATE and is now tied outside while we are there to bask in the sun as he does get out of our 4ft dog run to be by our side. Yep, big baby who wants to be with his human! He will be the perfect companion for someone who doesn’t mind a doggy following them to the bathroom, sitting by their feet all day and enjoying every minute of being with his human companion! So, if you see a dog tied at NARC, then you know the reason – they do jump out of our 4ft fences to be with their humans!!! Luckily for us, they aren’t runners lol and stay on the property to find us… So now we have 4 of those sucky babies, Bailey, Cherry, Lachlan and Dark Knight – jeez!
I brought Brody and Dark Knight to the vet’s, both for a check-up, Rabies & DA2PP and of course neuter for Brody! What sweet dogs they are, not only am I in love with the three big boys we picked up this week but so were the girls at the vet clinic. Brody is a Golden Retreiver mixed, such a sweet boy, very shy – enough so that he didn’t want to leave his cage this morning at the vet’s so the girls had to carry him in the back to prep him for surgery – sucky baby! Dark Knight is a Collie mixed, black boy with white paws, such a gorgeous and friendly dog. Both were quite scared when they arrived, given the few days here they are already better and loving NARC and their new mommy who is also very fond of them. Tomorrow is Lachlan’s turn, going to the vet’s with him, he is an Akita, gorgeous babe and such a baby – was scared of walking into NARC with all the doggies barking at him – too funny! Basically had to carry him in the house as he was that freaked out Ha! Ha! He is better today, didn’t bring him at the vet’s right away as he was too scared yesterday after picking him up but it’s his turn tomorrow!
My new NARC mommy brought me to this place called “The vet’s”? I am an approx 4-5 month old Hound puppy so I thought it would be such a nice and fun place to visit. Of course, for my second car ride, I puked all over my new NARC mommy’s car AGAIN but she wasn’t mad although I was quite embarrassed by it… We arrived and there was this HUGE doggy right there at the front entrance with his human and I wasn’t too sure what to do, I cowarded, took a step in and two steps backwards not too sure if this big dog would eat me alive or not! Mommy said it was fine and laughed at me a bit so I felt a bit more confident when I saw that she wasn’t stressed by this bigger doggy! I went to sniff him very slowly and saw that he couldn’t care less if I was there or not so it was fine to walk in completely! Then they weighed me and I met 2 girls that work there, they brought me in this room and Mommy set me up on this table, I didn’t like my temperature taken much but still was pretty quiet about the whole deal. Then the girl left, we had to wait quite a bit due to an emergency that just came in and mommy scratched my ear so here I am…
I was out cold at this vet’s place until this vet guy came in and woke me up… He checked me, gave me three needles, I didn’t like the pain medication one in my back – that one made me jump but the other two weren’t so bad, they were called Rabies and DA2PP. He also shaved a few spots on my body to check to see what I had – I heard mommy say to others that I was missing hair here and there and one spot was bumpy and bloody. He said it was dermatitis and prescribed antibiotics for 10 days, the bloody spot is a cyst so the anitbiotics will help with that too. So after this visit we went home and started the anitibiotics, mommy gives them in a peice of hot dog which I am enjoying very much! They all said I was a very exceptional puppy, very laid back and calm and everyone seems to really like me here at NARC!

I picked up Tris, Rocky and Checkers from the vet’s last night, they went for their spay/neuters, rabies, DA2PP and vet check. They will be recovering at NARC this weekend and all of next week then posted for adoption the following weekend. They are doing very well, with young doggies it always look like nothing happened to them when you pick them up!
We just got our cheque for $221.00 from the Boston Pizza in Rockland, thank you everyone who came to meet us, ate that night giving NARC 10% of food sales… It was a lot of fun and we are hoping to do this again sometime this winter!
Went to get Wookie and Jack at the vet’s last night, Jack was fine and it was like nothing had happened but poor Wookie… She was all groggy and sleepy so I carried her like a baby to the car, put her on the ground at home to give her time to pee or poo, she didn’t move so I just picked her up again and brought her in. She had quite a few extractions during her dental cleaning poor little girl and is now recovering from that and her spay for the week at NARC. Please do not ask to see these two this weekend, it will be NO as they need their time to recover properly. Thank you and see some of you at the Navan Fair Parade tomorrow!
