HAPPY BIRTHDAY VET VISIT

Hey Hounders,
It's Radar with a quick post about my 1 year old birthday yesterday. Almost Heaven has been slipping backwards in the Shelter Challenge for 3 straight days now; can you please take the time today to vote in the Shelter Challenge.

Yesterday dad decided that my front left paw injury was evidently hurting quite a bit and he was right. I was hobbling around yesterday morning so dad decided that I needed to go see a vet at Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital. So at 0730 hours he called and got us a 1030 hours appointment with the Grand Pupa himself, Doc Witter. You may recall that I broke a claw on my left front paw when I had my epileptic seizure on Friday night. Homer J. got to come along because we had a free post surgical evaluation coming to us for when he had his four moles removed a few weeks ago. Turns out that I have a minor infection on my sore paw. It took 3 assistants to stabilize me (hold me down) so that Doc could trim back my busted claw and shoot some medicine into the area. Then he packed it all up and put a heavy bandage wrap on my foot and then put a clear plastic bag over it with lots of tape so that my owey wouldn't get wet. I also weighed in at 84 lbs which means I'm the heaviest Bumpass Retriever; only the Newfs weigh more than me. Homer J.'s incisions are healing just fine and are looking good. I have to have an anti-biotic twice a day for 5 days and then I can have my bandage taken off. When we got home I tore the plastic bag off of my paw so dad taped a booty on it and told me to leave it be or I'd be in a cone of shame quick as a flash. Doc also took a blood sample to send off for analysis to see if it will tell him anything about what might have caused my seizure the other night. Doc told dad that unless I have more than two episodes a year that there is probably nothing to worry about and I won't need medication. What a swell birthday present that was; going to the vet's and getting poked and prodded. How fun - NOT!.

That's a very yucky birthday, Radar. I don't like the vet! My vet is a little rough. Sometimes he scares me so badly, I poop, right on the table!

Snuggly Bum Sniggles!

Happy B-day and sorry about the vet visit. Even nice vets are scary in my book.

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.
