THREE TO THE VET (Pt 1)

THE THREE DOGSTERTEERS

Saturday, 14 march 2009 - YIKES! We had to got to see Doc Witter today. Oh yeah, it's us, Abby, Jack and Sophie. Abby and Jack were due for their annuals and Sophie has joined the pack and needed to be brought up to date on everything and get her introductory Bumpass Hound vet visit and her every other week weigh-in. We were originally scheduled for a 9:30 am appointment, but the Grand Poobar himself, Doc Witter, sent dad an e-mail explaining that he was going to be the only vet on duty and they were over scheduled and could we possibly come in at 7:30 am. Our dumb, stupid, idiotic dad said YES. Now understand that we live an hour drive away from Doc's hospital so we would have to leave home at 6:30 am to make a 7:30 appointment, and dad needed to stop for coffee and doughnuts so we had to leave at 6;15 am. Of course, dad had to feed us and the other dogs and cats before we left so he had to get up at 5:00 am; just like a regular workday. Duh!, dad. Our people cuzin Caitlin is visiting for the weekend so dad figured as long as him and us had to be miserable, we should share with Caitlin and make her come along with us to help with the leashes and provide crowd control in the car. Poor kid, she never knew what hit her. dad got up at 5:00 am and fed us and the other dogs and let everyone outside in the cold rainy weather for a morning (night since it was still dark) constitutional for business purposes. Leashes were attached and we were load into the back of the car and of we went with dad driving and poor Caitlin trying to sleep in the passenger seat up front. What were we in store for this dark and gloomy day?

Mum says I have to go to the vet on Friday. Let me know how you went before I consider whether or not I'll go along with her.

Hi Hounders,

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
