4. ONGOING – On February 21st, 2013, I received a most delightful and touching email from a woman named Allie MacAlister that is so very active in helping others

She is extremely talented and more lovely than any words can ever be put down on paper and she has wonderfully surprised me with the very stunning and unique artful creation of an Irish Wolfhound, inspired by our Bunker Dude. She is calling it ‘Art For A Cause’.  

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

10% of sales of her products will come to BHRR!

*You can purchase t-shirts, mugs, mousepads, totes, greeting cards and SO much more! She will be adding products regularly.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

Miss Asante was at Eagleson Veterinary Clinic today for a consult for her bilateral cherry eyes.

We shall update as we can!

AND Miss Asante was also at the Vet today!
 
She is our Newfx puppy(with Pyr). Born: June 13th, 2022.
 
She weighed 30.6 kgs(67.32 pounds). Her last weight on October 18th was 21.9 kgs(48.18 pounds). She was extremely skinny at that appointment.
 
Now, she looks good and is just starting to become a bit overweight. So, we will monitor closely.
 
We had more eye lube dispensed, two more months of Nexgard, she received her boosters AND had her eyes looked at once again.
 
It is now time for her to be professionally groomed! We will have that scheduled shortly. We want all of our dogs to look plus feel their best!
 
I will be in conversation with the surgeon tomorrow in re: to her bilateral cherry eyes. We still have close to $5,000 to raise for the one estimate that we were given.
 
She may need to have a consult with the surgeon before proceeding, and that may change the estimate.
 
This is a surgery that has a high risk of failure. She already had one eye done by the shelter – her right – and that failed fast.
 
Being a giant breed puppy, a Newf too, and that the ‘newer’ approach to surgically addressing bilateral cherry eye all brings the probability of failure to a high level. We know this going in, and have had to address this more than once, with many a Giant since our inception. So, one thing that we can do/control is to do this surgery(ies) when she is a bit older.
 
Miss Asante shall be at our December 3rd Bake & Chili sale at Pet Valu Brockville! If you would like to donate any baked goodies or have items that we could sell at our table – please do email contactbhrr@gmail.com
 
Thank you to her wonderful foster home for making sure she got to her Vet appointment today and offering to be her special Secret Santa!

Though I am feeling bummed about missing Halloween, I am grateful to Miss Asante’s lovely foster home for sending pictures of her as an adorable ‘disco Halloween helper!’ 
 
Happy Halloween to all, and please keep your pets and children, plus yourselves, safe!
 

Miss Asante has now been safely handed off to her lovely fosters.
 
Thanks for meeting up with me partway!
 
I will see her on Tuesday at her vet apt., and now that we have her, we can start moving on her rehabilitation to health and new eyes!
 
Super sweet, super stinky, yet super sweet!

I got her and am now on my way to meet up with her foster family.
 
Not the best pics! Sorry!

Miss Asante is still travelling great!
 
She is travelling with cats & kittens and 6 other dogs on this transport. Lots of tandem driving going on as each leg is done.
 
I am being told her hair is like ‘velvet’. 
 
A massive hit with all!
 
She is so tiny in this pic!! We got you, sweet baby…soon, I will meet you soon!
 

Miss Asante began her journey early this AM & I will be meeting the transport in a few hours, then will drive to meet up with her temp foster.
 
The thing I do not have right now – I am recycling collars/leash/harness so she is ok on that for now, and I thought I could snag the brand new bed I had bought(not yet used) for one of my own dogs – an XL Costco dog bed.
 
Appears that the bed has been pulled down and loved – from the faint mud/dust pawprints evidence! 
 
If anyone may consider being a bed angel for her, please let me know!
 
She has her first vet appointment with us on Tuesday. We will get those eyes repaired ASAP. The shelter had done the right eye, yet it failed. Very common with the ‘new’ technique, especially with Danes and Newfs.
 
When she is ready and settled in a bit, too, we will have a professional groom done for we want all of our dogs looking and feeling their best.
 
I have been told she is ‘super sweet and very, very, very easygoing.’
 
From these pics, I see single-bred Newf, yet we will see what the intake paperwork says, etc.
 
It does not matter to us!
 

When it rains, it pours.
 
We had worked to schedule the home visit for BHRR’s Titan’s possible approved adoption and finally got a date booked, and today, I am notified by his foster home that he has blood in his urine.
 
Poor boy…..
 
When we first rescued him at the beginning of July, he had severe untreated urinary issues. He was placed on both Zeniquin and Clavaseptin.
 
So, everything is now on hold as we address this concern.
 
Sean/I are going to stop checking emails and texts and picking up the phone……just when you think you are going to get ahead of the rescue vet bills. 
 
Yet, we will continue to ensure that he and all of our dogs get everything they need and go up and beyond. 
 
On a side note, we are getting one step closer to having BHRR’s Asante arrive. I also have her first Vet appointment booked for Tuesday at 3 PM.
 

****URGENT***
 
3-month-old female Newf/Pyr pup in need.
 
The shelter did cherry eye surgery on one eye – it failed – and now the other eye also needs to be done. The picture was before the first eye surgery failed.
 

She is only three months old.

We are calling her ‘Asante’ – Swahili for ‘Thankful/Grateful’ as that is how we feel towards so many that have come together to enable us to help her – From the Shelter reaching out, to the Volunteers stepping up to foster her, to the Vet Team that will be on hand to help us get her healthy and to the strong BHRR village that will surround her with support/kindness!

I know that this wee sweetheart shall also be thankful to be able to live the life she always deserved!
