I've ran across them before on the net, but had forgotten all about them.

We are working on it. Boots for puppy feet are expensive.

One of the best things about coming home was finding out a local puppymill many of us had been trying to get shut down since 1999 was raided by HSI Canada! Yippee!! Happy dance! 500 dogs seized. These dogs are in better conditions now, getting walked, and petted, and vet care. There will be a long court battle because these dogs were the "owners' livelihood." But at least the dogs are in a clean environment, breathing clean air, learning to walk on solid ground, getting groomed, and petted, and cuddled, and being cared for by the caring volunteers and veterinarians.

Great news!

Great CWS!

There are two new 5 week old puppies at work in Medical Records...I spent 20 minutes of puppytime this morning.

Patron will be at work tomorrow, he has a command performance from a patient who is going home. He is spending longer spans of time at home alone with his sister dog, Iris. So I am not seeing him as much as I used to.

Here's a link to one of the many reports on this seizure:

Quebec kennel seizure could be largest in Canada

These people were unemployed, had a "breeding pair" of Saint Bernards, and discovered that selling puppies was profitable.Originally in Ontario, they packed up and moved across the border the night before they were supposed to be raided way back when. It has been an uphill battle for 15/16 years to get this place raided. Over the years, they've had 80 different breeds (I've kept track of their advertisements). Since the raid, 90 puppies have been born, and more are on their way. Poor thing, now she just has her old age pension...and legal bills. Don't you just feel sorry for her...

Yes, the tiniest I could find, everything flops off, his paws are just a bit bigger around than a pencil...someone told me to use rubber bands...I don't really want to cut off circulation. I was thinking about athletic wrap to shape some boots for him.
