Vet’s last night

I dropped off Chewy and Macousse for their neuter and spay last night, Macousse will also get her Rabies and DA2PP.  She will be 7 months old on April 20th, a black labrador who is now available for adoption.  She is very sweet, good dog who knows her basic commands, good with other dogs and perfect with everyone she has met, house trained, etc….  Baby Bear came with me for his shots and check up, vet gave us thumbs up, he is approx 4 months old and Newfoundland mixed.  With those paws he will surely be a big boy!  He now has his first DA2PP and Rabies, although we feel he needs a few extra pounds, we are working on it.  He is already 15kg!  He was so good at the vet’s, he was lying down on the table while I was patting his ear and belly and he just stayed put while we checked his temperature, vet did his thing and gave him both shots.  He never moved or complained, such a well behaved baby!  He is also getting better at walking on the leash, doesn’t go around me as much as he did before and stays by my right side – learning quickly!

Baby Bear

Baby Bear has gotten lost in the woods but made his way to NARC, he lost momma bear and poppa bear but will soon find his new loving family to call home.  A quick snap shot of Baby Bear’s paw – can you guess what he is?


You are right, Newfoundland puppy is at NARC.

Kienna’s puppies

Well, another 2 were born while I was at work yesterday so we are now at 8 puppies for Kienna – that is amazing.  She seems to be a wonderful mom, taking care of her babies although did look quite exhausted last night – poor baby!  They are all black with grey markings, the pinkest noses ever, too cute – wonder what they will look like in a few weeks time when their eyes open!

Bringing Isis’ last puppy for her 2nd DA2PP tonight and dropping off Bo for his neuter!

Kienna has given birth

Such an exciting day!  For those whom have met our wonderful Alaskan Husky this past week, she is not only gorgeous but was very pregnant when we picked her up last Monday, March 31st.  You can see her gorgeous face under available soon…  She has given birth overnight, woke up to 6 little baby Alaskan Huskies this morning.  We will not be showing them until they are 6 weeks old so please refrain from asking volunteers to disturb mommy and babes until they have their first shots around May 21st.  We are not sure whom the sire is but if the puppies are as nice and friendly as their mother – they will be exceptional little bundles of joy.

Agatha Spotted in the back yard!

Yes, Joanne had spotted Agatha in the back yard, coming from Canary Street into the horses field…  Dave and I got so excited, I ran on one side of the house in the foot deep snow to see if I could get her to come and Dave ran from the other side of the house.  All we did was spook the crap out of her, she was coming home but then ran deeper into the forest when she saw us coming at her!  Got Kim and Sharon to bring me snow shoes, impossible to walk in that much snow and was waiting for the day to calm down, no clients, all dogs inside quiet and I went alone for a few hours in search of our beautiful Agatha.  Binoculars in hand, still wasn’t able to locate her anywhere so I finally gave up when it got dark in hopes to start my search again today.  BUT, this morning, a barking dog woke me up, jumping at the door and making quite a lot of noise – I AM HOME, I AM HOME, OPEN THE DOOR, I AM HOME!  It woke me up with a start, knowing there are no dogs outside but hearing a bark from the outside so I ran out to see if it was our girl and so be it…  She was at the NARC door, running from there to the window and barking at her friends inside to OPEN THE DOOR – I AM HOME!  I called her name when I got closer, she didn’t even hear me come being that she was barking up a storm!  She turned around and ran to me jumping up to say hello, she was so excited, I just opened the NARC door and she ran in, ran into the other room where all her buddies are, ran around the room – you should have seen how excited she was.  I gave her a bowl of food and water and settled her into her crate.  She didn’t eat right away, guess the excitement of finding her way home surpassed her being hungry.  Although I got my regular licks on the hand as a Thank You – Agatha, I am so happy you are back!

Agatha’s missing!

One of our dogs chewed off the corner of the skirt on the modular home so they all were able to get under the mobile home and out from the front trap door.  Luckily for us, Michael and Honorata stayed around, loose at the front and actually came jumping up on me the moment they saw me but Agatha is missing.  Wierd as Demetria and Philomena never even attempted to leave the fenced back yard and came back in through the trap door…  We were surprised Agatha actually followed Michael and Honorata as she usually stayes close to Demetria.  We’ve been looking for her everywhere, she is a very shy dog and we are quite worried she is hiding somewhere.  We already went to the OHS to see if she was there or picked up – nothing yet.  Please, if you see a little puggle outside somewhere, give us a call and we will come and get her..  She will come to the volunteers she does know so it may be best to call us and not try to get her yourselves, we are worried she will run away further!
