I'LL LIVE

DR. COLLINS SAYS THAT I"LL BE OK
Hey Hounder,
Jack here with a follow-up on my split paw pad. I went to work with mom on Tuesday; she's doing an internship at Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital. I DO NOT like going to CRAH at all, even if mom does work there. Anyway, I spent most of the day in a large patient cage near the surgery. Dr. Elizabeth Collins examined my paw and she says that it appears to be healing and that I do NOT need any stitches. Mom has to clean out the pad every night and change the bandage. I also get a 500 mg antibiotic twice a day for about 10 days. Of course, if it starts to bleed or look bad mom has to bring me back in for a vet to re-evaluate me. I can't do zoomies and have to limit my activity so I'll be spending a lot of time in the house. I've still got my snow shoe on so the babes can woo over me. The sympathy eyes don't seem to be escalating the treat level much, probably because the rest of the pack is doing the same thing. Mom will be taking good care of me; she always does.

Hey Jack - Glad your doing ok bud - I can see you like doing the zoomy around your place!

Golden Retrievers are my favourite doggy type even though I am a cat person really... ;)

You and the other hounds are handsome and lovely and I wish I could meet all of you and the kitties!

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.

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.
