We brought the 3 new boxer mixed puppies to the vet’s for their first DA2PP shot, they turned 6 weeks on Tuesday so will be ready for adoption on Aug 9th. Roxy had to go back to the vet’s, one stitch didn’t disolve and would have gotten infected so we had to go back. They removed the stitch, put glue to close the little hole and off she went with antibiotics for the week to help with the healing. She is such a baby and was crying the whole time like a child lol. The puppies did a great job, pretty much slept through the whole thing, got their needles without a peep and came home. They too will be on antibiotics for a week, with this crazy hot and mostly cold summer, we haven’t been closing the window on colder nights so Pink has a bit of the sniffles. Nothing to worry about but he probably would spread it to his siblings so all three will be on antibiotics to help their little system! Now to remember to close that window every evening – pretty cold in the country at night you know!
That was a lot of fun, I am pretty sure I am talking on behalf of all of our volunteers that attended last night, those who served and those who came with their family and friends for diner. The staff at the Boston Pizza Rockland is amazing, really friendly and fun to work with, teaching the volunteers the ups and downs of serving at a restaurant which was pretty cool on it’s own! I hope that our clients that attended were as happy? All I saw was smiling faces leaving so I am pretty sure the feeling was mutual. There was a nice band for ambiance and overall we were all quite impressed and left with tummies full! We will do this again, probably this winter when it’s cold and grey, when it’s time to get out of the house after being locked in for too long Ha! Ha! Ha! Thank you everyong, I will blog how much we raised the moment that Boston Pizza informs us!
Dropped off Zander and Cara at the vet’s last night, they are getting neuter/spayed today, will pick them up tonight and let you know how they are doing!
On Thursday, I dropped off Roxy and Myra for their spay and brought our new little puppy named Lola for her shots. Lola did a very good job at the vet’s that evening and had her first DA2PP and Rabies shots. She is approx 3 months old, german mixed, very cute and will certainly be gone this weekend if someone is looking for a puppy!
Last night, I picked up the girls at the vet’s and Roxy was quite groggy and I could tell she wasn’t feeling well. The car ride home was hard on her and made her sick to her tummy, poor little girl. But, she is fine this morning and will be recovering with us till next weekend. Please do not ask to see her this weekend, we do not let the dogs out when clients visit when they have just been spayed/neutered. Give her time to recover! Thank you.
We are having an on-line auction on facebook very soon, many new prizes to bid on… Pictures will be posted this week on facebook and here on our website. Bidding starts in the next week, check it out… very exciting news!
I went to pick up the two groggy boys last night, Bruno cried all the way home, complaining how much it hurts and although Bailey was quiet, he did cry when coming out of the truck. Poor boy also had a hernia removed so double surgeries for him. They will be inside for at least 5 days recovering from their surgeries and be posted as available for the following weekend. Please don’t ask to see these boys this weekend, it will be a definite NO! If you are interested in them, you can fill the adoption questionnaire, send it along with your veterinary reference and we will get you pre-approved for the following weekend. Thank you for your understanding!
I dropped off Bailey and Bruno at the vet’s last night, both are getting their neuters this morning, Rabies, DA2PP and check-ups. Yep, Bruno is now ready to head out in the big bad world, what a changed little man, loving everyone he meets, playfull, bouncy and just overall a regular boxer now! He will surely find a home very soon but we will be picky with the family we select so that he doesn’t revert back to being scared of strangers and trying to protect his family! God, you should see my upper leg today, Bailey was sooooo excited about going for a walk and car ride that he jumped me, abused my leg and now I have a scratch as long as my hand on my upper leg, hurts like hell today. Big lug – gotta stop getting so excited you big goof! Ha! Ha! Ha!
We would like to say a big thank you, sending hugs and kisses to everyone who has donated lately. We had 400.00 donated by Help Ottawa Fur Kids; a young girl asked for money on her birthday and raised 220.00 for us. One of our rescues Buddy and his mom Rachel came with harnesses and other donations, few volunteers got together and brought a trunk full of food, treats. The Manotic Classic Boat Club got together and brought towels and donations. All in all, a busy weekend mowing the front property, weed eating in the dog runs and visitors with gifts for or doggies or money for our vet’s. It was nice and hot and although we had to bring the doggies in a bit earlier each night due to the fireworks in the area, it was quite pleasant!
