Sean & I are still trying to work out this 'error' bug yet you can now at least watch the video by following the above instructions. Please email if you are having problems and wish to view BHRR's Story.

I hope that BHRR's Bean's story will have as strong as an emotional impact on you as he has had on our lives. EDUCATION is key and may people NOT support bybers or puppymills or purchase from petstores AND may each person become a better owner in having watched BHRR's Bean's story in having lost his own life at just 9 months of age.

ONE of the absolute hardest things I ever had to do………AND you are so very much missed BHRR's Bean! 🙁

BHRR's Bean November 5th, 2010 – 9 months of age
February 2nd, 2010 – November 6th, 2010
Weight almost 135 pounds as of Nov. 6, 2010  – almost 20 pounds of muscle mass put on during his 6.5+ weeks at BHRR


"BHRR’s Bean's Final Breaths" -Slideshow without 'story' or music

I am so affected by the impending loss of BHRR's Bean that I am going to create a 'diary' of his last moments and I do this not to be 'dramatic' or 'over the top' BUT I do want to make a very public and openly graphic compelling statement about his death at ONLY 9 months of age. AND I am doing this because I LOVE this dog sooooo much and he has been sooooo wrong done by that I hope that part of the legacy he leaves behind is a very powerful, huge and forever lasting impacting educational awareness lesson that I can only pray that people will 'listen' to and research! RESEARCH! RESEARCH before supporting bybers AND I can only hope that just one irresponsible dog owner sees the final journey of steps and breaths that BHRR's Bean had to take and might 'listen' to become more responsible in their own care plus treatment of their own animals. I can hope….

I am gong to call this 'BHRR's Bean's Final Breaths' and it shall be a slideshow of our last moments together and I shall be posting it here and on our BHRR's Reality Page.

AND after this, I shall post the final pictures that Sean helped me take of HOW we are going to remember BHRR's Bean in our hearts and souls….the LIVING BHRR's Bean and about the quality filled LIFE we gave him yet it was not long enough….never ever ever long enough.



BHRR's Bean & BHRR's Frank – BROTHERS – HOW they slept for most of last night…excuse all the 'green' and 'yellow'  and 'brown' colours for my iPhone takes crappy indoor pics! BHRR's Bean and BHRR's Frank either snuggled on the cooler slate floor or in the softly bedded triage area(no room for SEAN!) for most of last night. Just barely 9 months of age!

BHRR's Bean(left) & BHRR's Frank(right) November 5th, 2010

BHRR's Bean with Sean October 29th, 2010 sleeping in the 'triage' area. They have spent many a night sleeping there together……

Please send a prayer for BHRR's Bean. On Saturday November 6th, 2010; I shall be bringing him with me to let him cross over to a world free of pain. Our appointment is for 3:50 PM and it is going to be a very long and yet short night and all I want to do is cry and almost scream out in anger and frustration over how SO NOT RIGHT BHRR's Bean has been done by….. 🙁

BHRR's Bean has been very much enjoying his early SS's pressies from Jan, Patricia, Mary and Suzanne! THANK all of you so much for helping to ensure that what time he has left is full of the best experiences possible! 2 new pictures added to his slideshow and also added below.

He is not doing very well and we know that we are nearing the end of our very special time with him. For all those that you can assist, truly, it is the ones like BHRR's Bean that really make you feel the impact of that there is only so much one can do AND if Breeders would breed responsibly (health, longevity, conformation and temperament) AND if Owners would research before purchasing from Breeders AND if Owners would be responsible, the BHRR's Bean's of the world would not ever experience what BHRR's Bean is currently nor that his life will end before it ever really had a chance to begin. AND that is who my tears of frustration, anger, pain, loss are for……BHRR's Bean and the unfairness of that while I can almost guarantee that his Breeder has not spared him a further thought other than how much $$$$ they would see in selling him AND that while his Owners(who btw had given what turned out to be a bounced check owner surrender fee of $50 to BHRR for BHRR's Bean and BHRR's Frank and all 3 of their phone numbers are now disconnected and/or out of service) also most assuredly sleep well at night knowing they no longer have to throw some food here and there to their two dogs that had been tied outside or worry about neighbours complaining about barking dogs or that they were not being properly taken care of; IT is I, ME, MYSELF and Sean and my kids and all those that have fallen in love with the BHRR's Bean's of the world that it will take so much longer for us to be able to close our eyes at night and only see his amazing self, those incredible eyes of his despite being pain filled, the way he now feels more confident and willing to trust to ask for affection(SOMETHING that should have been his given right to have received before) and I am ANGRY!!!! It is I that will be holding him in my arms and washing him in the love of my tears as I cross him over. IT is I that shall make that long hard drive into the Hospital, trying to tell BHRR"s Bean that it is because I love him so much that I must let him go…..IT is I that shall be looking deep into his eyes as the light shall fade from those beautiful orbs and no matter how peaceful we shall try to make it; he will be confused, slightly nervous and then with that final deep sigh, he shall be free from all that pain and hurt that once plagued him in life. IT is I along with my compassionate co-workers who shall help carry him to my car and lay him so tenderly upon the seat so that I can then make that long and hard drive back home and then it is I along with my husband, whose heart and soul is second to none out there in support, heart and soul that shall help me carry BHRR's Bean to his final resting place along with others that have had to make this journey……

FOR those that think that it is so easy to just put an animal to sleep, let me tell you it is not……I never get 'used' to it, I never stop 'feeling' and I agonize and feel sick and weak and shed so many tears that I have tried so hard to choke back with each and every one that we lose at BHRR or even one of our own. SO, yes, I am angry, so angry for the BHRR's Bean's of the world that people do not educate themselves before purchasing a dog and for all those Breeders out there just wanting to make a fast buck and that is it I, along with our fantabulous supporters that work tirelessly trying to give each animal that we can a better life……we are just a bunch of dedicated Volunteers trying to make a difference to animals in need yet; unfortunately, we cannot always give each dog what we know they should have and at the age of only 9 months, BHRR's Bean shall be having his last meal, making his last walk, his last car ride, having his last treat and experiencing his last touches of adoration before he is laid in eternal rest………

I ADORE you BHRR's Bean and I am sorry…..I am so very sorry……so very sorry for all the wrong so many did to you and that I am so very sorry for all that I can not make things right for you. 🙁


BHRR's Bean with Sean – October 29th, 2010 – 2nd picture has a tiny bit of Sir Maestro's muzzle!

Another deepest public thanks being sent out and this time to Mary for being another 'early' SS Friend to BHRR's Bean.

BHRR's Bean has yet another very kind angel going to donate a small special something his way as an 'early' SS – THANKS Patricia!!!! My heart is just so welled up in the best feelings of emotion over everyone's support of him to give him all that the can have in quality! THANK YOU!

I want to also publicly send out my heartfelt appreciation to Jan for also offering to be an 'early' Secret Santa to BHRR's Bean. BHRR is so blessed to have the people they do that believe in what we do here and reach out in support and compassion!

I want to thank Suzanne for offering to be an 'early ' Secret Santa(SS) for BHRR's Bean! It is so appreciated and we are touched by your love and care for him. For anyone else thinking of being a 2010 SS for BHRR's Bean; the following items are ones that he would take great pleasure in receiving –

Costco Sherpa Blankets
Huge Smoked Dinosaur Bones
Huge Smoked Dinosaur Knuckle Bones

*Unfortunately, he is unable to really run and play and zip around with toys, but he does lay in one of the collosal crates with some of the Giant Rope Tire Toys, Giant Sized Ball Rope Toys and the squeaky Good 'Cuz' Toys.

I have added new pictures taken with my phone to his slideshow #7 and #8 and I have added them below. The 'grain' is not the best due to the flash but you can still see his lovely mug! That is his brother, BHRR's Frank laying the background and you can also see part of BHRR's Lily Belle's back!

BHRR's Bean – Saturday October 23rd, 2010 – 8 months of age

All monies raised to date for BHRR's Bean have all gone to his care in paying for his Vet Bills including exams, bw, sentinel, tramadol, deramaxx and clavamox, Massage treatments, any CWW sessions, Glucosamine and any comfort things such as blankets, duvets and Dino bones to give him the best quality filled life he can have. He is being fed FROMM Salmon and alternating that with FROMM Whitefish; high quality food that also carries glucosamine and chronditin to help him.

I am also really trying to keep BHRR's Bean 'mentally' busy plus stimulated with puzzle games and 'hide & seek' games etc. He is a very bright boy!

BHRR's Bean weighed 55.2 KGS(121.44 pounds) today when I brought him in to have a consult and exam with Dr. Philibert. At this time, tonight I am going to snuggle and cuddle with BHRR's Bean and we are going to create more wonderful memories and experiences for him. I am also going to have a big box of Kleenex on hand. After spending almost $2,000 of my own monies AS I so wanted to dot all 'i's' and cross all 't's' before reaching this point; to see 2 Vets and 3 Othro Specialists; all are pretty much in align with each other. Dr. Philibert also believes that his knee is this way due to the HD and this is why he is walking 'toes' out and therefore 'popped' the knee. It is not a birth defect and his hips are only going to get worse in time and with how complex everything is, it is not great. Dr. Philibert felt that BHRR's Bean's front end was super strong and full of muscle yet his hind end is so poorly conformed and lacking tone. Dr. Philibert stated that he could most likely give BHRR's Bean some improvement in the knee yet it would not be aligned straight and with his hips the way they are; he will most likely(short term yet maybe longer) 'pop' it out again and that it is only a matter of time before the other knee also becomes affected. Dr. Philibert was also more worried about the left side over the right side right now, which was interesting to note. Dr. Philibert believes that the knee cap most likely is already very worn on the one side from wear and tear and it will also be a contributing factor to the knee not staying where it should. He felt that he perhaps could 'shave' off some bone in the leg and look at smoothing the knee cap yet the prognosis is really not great over all. Per Dr. Philibert straight up you cannot leave him like this and this is a very complicated case and that though he is pretty sure about 70% that he can give him some improvement yet no one knows how long that will last (big giant breed growing puppy) before he runs into the same issues and most likely the same and even more issues involving the other leg. Dr. Philibert did say that the surgery could be a complete failure from the start too. Dr. Philibert recommended to keep up with the anti-imflammatories, glucosamine and we discussed the worry that with all the pain BHRR's Bean is in; that he will continue to decrease in mobility, decrease in his appetite and that he will increase in his 'crankiness' with that pain. NO one wants to see BHRR's Bean or any dog set up for failure by living in such pain that should someone(imagine a child) accidentally 'hurting' him and him just 'reacting' due to his level of discomfort. I write this blog with such sickness in my gut and no matter how many we have saved over the past year with amputations, cruciates and obstructions surgeries, it is the BHRR's Bean's and BHRR's Jaxson's of the world that just rip me up inside and tear at me with the feelings of that I have somehow failed them……….. All those 'what ifs' are running through my mind…'what if' we knew about him earlier and when he was super younger…..'what if' this….'what if' that…..so many 'what ifs'…..What I do know for sure is that when it is time and I know that time is limited and I have known that in my gut for awhile now; that BHRR's Bean will be held tightly in my caring and adoring arms and I shall wash him in the love of my tears as I cross him over into a world of no pain. That is my final act of promise of ensuring that he shall be done right by. No more suffering other than what shall linger in my own heart and gut and soul for the rest of my life. Is is the ones that we cannot save that I remember so vividly and am so deeply afffected by for even though I am well aware that you cannot 'save' them all and that sometimes the kindest thing one can do is to let them go; it still just seems so unfair that that all cannot live long quality filled and cherished lives. We shall also give BHRR's Bean an 'early' XMAS here for he is deserving of all the pleasures that life can be given to him during the time we have left! If anyone wishes to contribute early to our 8th ANNUAL SECRET SANTA TO THE BHRR ANIMALS EVENT by choosing BHRR's Bean as a recipient; please do email

BHRR's Bean has an appointment on Friday with Dr. P at 11:30 AM. I left a vm with Dr. P. last night asking to have a consult ASAP for BHRR's Bean's condition is worsening as he grows. The Deramaxx and Tramadol are only so effective and he is not a small boy. I shall get a new weight on him on Friday. Please keep him in your thoughts for no one was to know when he first arrived how bad of shape he really was in for X-Rays had not been done prior to BHRR being contacted to assist and in us bringing him into BHRR.

I have a tentative date scheduled for a neuter for BHRR's Bean – November 30th yet if Dr. P's prognosis is the same as the other 4 Vets that have reviewed his case to date; we shall cancel. The priority shall remain to give him the best quality filled life we can for as long as we can and at only 8 months of age; it is so tragic to think that he is very limited in time. broken heart

I did a follow-up with the Vet re: a consult with Dr. P and to date still am waiting for that yet I have been back in touch wtih the two ortho specialists I have worked with in the USA and Dr. Liston and all three are on board that they are more worried about the HD than the luxating patella at this time, especially as the worst one is on the same side as the luxating patella. No one is thrilled with the luxating patella yet the first concern for them at this time remains the HD and does BHRR's Bean require or even qualify for hip replacement surgery to then look a fixing his luxating patella. Additionally, it is still a back and forth on the best move forward treatment plan for BHRR's Bean for while they would like to wait until he is more grown(growth plates etc.); with how much discomfort he is in and the swelling(he is on Deramaxx plus Tramadol) and how through time, his mobility is decreasing with the discomfort increasing ; time is definitely not on Bean's side. Additionally, with how big he is going to be, the success of any procedure, in particular longterm is a huge question. I am going to be leaving my own vm with Dr. P for as I told the Vet last night, if I have to go to the States I will yet I wish to discuss with Dr. P and understand he is very busy; before proceeding at this time. The Vet that I did talk to last night said that Dr. P did have an initial look at the x-rays for they too, made the comment about the HD vs the luxating patella. In the meantime, I will also schedule his neuter for due to all accounts; *if* surgery is going to be done; it most likely will have to wait now until he is a bit older and there is no reason for him to remain intact for a 'questionable' amount of time. Also, I am going to move BHRR's Bean to our Haven Dog program in the meantime for if he does not have have a great prognosis with or without surgery, he will remain having as much quality filled time as possible. All monies raised for BHRR's Bean have been used for his special care – X-rays, bw, Sentinel, Tramadol, Deramaxx, exams, massage, and any additionally monies raised remaain 'held' for his bills as per our intent. I am also going to touch base with CWW for as we are now into October at BHRR; our own pool is 'shut' for the year. I am going to see if doing some floating around in the water would be ok with them. He will not be doing specific hydro or rehab for that is not going to be in his best interest. I am just looking at getting him into the pool and floating around to get that weight off his hips and knee for a bit here and there. He is deeply enjoying his massage and he is much more himself after those sessions. His bills to date have been over $1,500

BHRR's Bean's first Canine Water Wellness session shall be Tuesday October 26th @ 2:00 PM and if anyone is interested in assisting me in getting him to extra sessions, please do email.

From Friday October 22nd to Friday November 5th inclusive, BHRR will not be open for adoptions or the intake of adoption applications. We do not adopt out around the Halloween season and many others Rescues, shelters, pounds etc. have also begun to follow a similar protocol to what we have been doing. We do not believe it is on the best interest of the animals in our program, especially for dark coloured dogs.

During this time, BHRR is available 24/7 as always for requests for assistance of animals in need.

BHRR’s Bean’s bw came back from when we took it upon his arrival to BHRR and he is also battling an infection, the poor thing. He has now been put on Clavamox 375 mg 2 tablets BID for 7 days.  I have talked to one other Vet and two ortho specialists that I have utilized in the past in the USA and am still awaiting to discuss Bean’s case with Dr. Philibert. When I went to bed that night after his Vet appointment, I had many thoughts going through my mind and my main focus and determination is to keep ‘objective’ about his case to ensure that what is best for him is done. I have been discussing quality of life, prognosis of surgery, his age, medical conditions etc. etc. etc. Thank you to everyone that has stepped up to donate to his cause!
WE ONLY NEED $270.00 MORE WITHIN THE NEXT 16 HOURS!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider donating to Bean’s cause!

In addition to what was written in the attached link, I wanted to say that BHRR's Bean is an awesome car traveller! At night he sleeps with his brother BHRR's Frank in our master bedroom without issue and has done crate with crate training too for he is not yet ready to be 'trusted' with full run of the house. He has also proven himself that he is not quite 100% housebroken for he will pee outside and then has been known to come in and do a 'walking' pee over as many dog beds as he can!  😛 He and BHRR's Lily Belle have become fast friends and BHRR's Lily Belle is so much more happy now for she has a new admirer! LOL

BHRR's Bean – September 19th, 2010

BHRR’s Frank and Bean arrived safely yesterday to BHRR. THANKS to BHRR BOD member Mary for transporting them from her area to BHRR on her way to the BHRR “EXPERIENCE” Mini Open House. By the time I went to bed at 2:00 AM, they both had been fully intergrated with all the dogs here, 20 and did great. They are definitely attached to each other and it is BHRR’s Bean’s right hind leg that is the ‘concern’ and I have an appointment set up on Thursday September 23rd with one of my Vets to discuss. Both need to be neutered, micrcohipped(THANKS Mary for the donation of her ‘Ava Marie ONLINE Auction’ micrcochip winning) plus donating funds towards another micrcohip so that both will be chipped! They are a most interesting and delightful pair. They are soooooooooooo sweet and lovable. Both have their areas of confidence and both have their areas of insecurity. BHRR’s Frank is very human oriented and BHRR’s Bean is more quiet/bit reserved/unsure around humans. Franks tail wags nonstop and Bean’s is more half mast wagging. So, Bean needs a bit more confidence in that area. BHRR’s Bean is the more ‘Dora Explorer’ type whereas BHRR’s Frank much prefers to have a ‘human’ come along for the exploration with him. BHRR’s Bean loves loves loves playing with BHRR’s Lily Belle and she is already smitten with him for she senses the ‘conquest’ of another adoring Saint her way! LOL BHRR’s Frank prefers to more play with his sibling and both decided to ‘rock’ my house at 2 AM today with their spontaneous zooming throughout the main floor, moving my table and chairs every which way! 😛 Both were very taken with Mary and though Mary spent the night here; I took both boyz into the masterbedroom with me and after only a brief time or two working on ‘convincing’ Frank that he is not to sleep on the bed and a couple of whines out of Bean, both had a superb night! They have proven themselves to date to be housebroken and BHRR’s Bean is much more comfortable peeing and it takes BHRR’s Frank a bit more time to ‘warm’ up to the idea outside. BHRR’s Bean had the better appetite and BHRR’s Frank is more picky and slow. No resourcing issues at this time either and BHRR’s Potter was excited about ‘fresh meat’ coming to BHRR as he just loves new friends! Multi CH. TAIN pouted as he was getting lower on the ‘baby’ list. BHRR’s Frank has tendencies towards miner SA behavours, so efforts are being made to not ‘enable’ him. They are both SOOOOOOOOOOOOO sweet though! BHRR’s Bean is taller and both have a slightly different coat type from each other as BHRR’s Frank is not quite smooth or rough coat. BHRR’s Bean is a smooth coat. Their colours and faces are also quite distinct from each other and within seconds I could tell them apart yet there were still about 10 people here from yesterday BHRR’s ‘EXPERIENCE’ Mini Open House when the Saints arrived that had some trouble remembering who was who! THANKS Chuck in helping us get them into the house!!!! Thanks as well to Mary in donating collars(red for Frank and black for Bean) to BHRR along with leashes AND the dog bed. THESE are already two very loved and spoiled Saints at BHRR. I konw it was hard for Mary to say good-bye and as I assured Mary, they will remember her when she is back in November, we are planning out last BHRR ‘EXPERIENCE’ Mini Open House which shall also be our 8th Secret Santa Event for the BHRR animals too! The other thing that I am going to be doing very soon is separating them for playdates for one cannot guarantee that they shall be adopted together – in fact, BHRR has only TWICE in its almost 15 years history adopted two animals together for we do not believe this to be a common ‘best interest’ practise for the animals and that it is a ‘rare’ event yet twice we have done it for we felt strongly that it was in those dogs best interest. We shall see what transpires as these two settle into BHRR. They also need nail trims badly and that is on zee agenda. We I shall be doing is posting playdates for anyone of our approved BHRR adopters to take one of them out on their own to get some time away from the other for they are way to dependent on each other right now. I have nothing wrong with close relationships yet they ‘lean’ on each other a bit too much to ‘boost’ them in their own areas of insecurity and we need to work on those areas independently to make them the best dogs they can be.  🙂 They are soooooooooooooo precious though! I cannot wait for the honeymoon period to be over for I can already see that each has their ‘own’ leader traits and goober personalities! Let the journey begin boyz!!! Welcome to BHRR! Between Sean & I, we have taken quite a few pictures yesterday and today and for now, I am going to post some in their slideshows as I am having some issue getting them inbeded into their blogs posts right now. LOVING these boyz…….AND oh…they are nowhere near as large as we were told they are……ball parking around 110 – 115 tops and I shall get weights when I have them in later this week. They are just babies…..and shall be bigger enough soon enough……let’s not rush things. AND, BHRR’s Frank could afford to lose a few pounds and BHRR’s Bean can afford to put on about 5-7 pounds right now. We will work on that.

BHRR is in its 3rd food crisis of 2010. We only have about 30 days worth of dog food left and we currently have 23 dogs under our authority between our BHRR Rescue/Rehabilitation Program, BHRR Adoption Program, BHRR Haven Dog Program & BHRR Foster/Perma-Foster Program.
BHRR is currently going through 600 pounds of dog food a month at a cost of a minimum of $825.00+ tax for the food.

BHRR’s Bean – 7 month old (born February 2nd, 2010) Saint Bernard Male. We have been told that he has a bad right knee concern and at one point we were told it was a birth defect. BHRR’s Bean is the littermate brother to BHRR’s Frank and both are expected to arrive to BHRR on Saturday September 18th. They are owner surrenders as their owners due to their owners finding themselves in a financial position of not being able to continue to care for them and to give BHRR’s Bean the Vet attention needed for that knee. We have been told that he has proven to be good with children, women and men and likes to steal toilet paper rolls(he will fit right in with dogs like BHRR’s Dana, BHRR’s Potter & BHRR’s Porridge here!). He has been living with a cat and wants to play and chase it. He has been good with his brother and plays with a Shih Tzu friend just fine as well. He does not have any resourcing issues and has no bite history. As I learn more I will update and add photos. Looking forward to meeting you BHRR’s Bean. I have an appointment set up for September 23rd for both boyz to come to KAH with me for exams etc.

‘Bean’s *SAINTS*’ Fundraiser shall be created to assist us in raising the much needed support and funds to help him become healthy again. More details to come. We shall also be using funds raised during our 3rd Annual BHRR Boat Cruise/Dinner & Live/Silent Auction Fundraiser coming up on Saturday October 2nd (ONLY 6 tickets left!) to assist both BHRR’s Apollo with his CWW ‘Angels’ sessions and for BHRR’s Bean’s *SAINTS* Fundraiser.
