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!
We are bringing Wookie, a tiny Yorkie mixed Shih-Tzu that may have a home lined up already, a client was really in love with our quiet girl last weekend. She is going for her spay, dental cleaning and probably extractions from the looks of her mouth, rabies and DA2PP. We are also bringing Jack, our new year old Golden Retreiver as we know many of our clients will want him soon, he is too adorable to pass up! He is going for his neuter, Rabies and DA2PP. Will let you know how they do tomorrow!
Yup, we will be in the Navan Fair Parade at 10:45am on Saturday, August 9th again this year. Come see us and the pooches strut our stuff!
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!
