3. 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

The Three’s Company Pups were at the Vet on July 28th for their final boosters – DHPP, Rabies, Lepto, Lyme, and Bordetella.
 
They were all re-weighed, and their next dose for flea/ticks & hw was dispensed.
 
Their weights ranged from 12.5 kgs(Mr. Jack) to 13.8 kgs(Miss Chrissy) with Miss Janet weighing 13 kgs. The girls are on the verge of being chubby, so adjustments are being made.
 
A different wonderful vet saw them this time – the Vet we have used for the past 18 years for our ortho plus eye enucleations, and they had another good look at their eyes.
 
The Vet agrees that while they have microphthalmia and recessed pupils, their eyes are not experiencing chronic pain or infections.
 
So, enucleations remain off the table for them!
 
Miss Chrissy & Mr. Jack do see some yet, Miss Janet is pretty much completely blind. She does not menace etc.
 
The Vet said that Miss Janet’s eyes were the nicest shape/size out of all three.
 
Both Mr. Jack & Miss Chrissy can hear a bit. Miss Janet is pretty much completely deaf.
 
Miss Chrissy & Miss Janet demonstrated excellent scent work in finding treats during the exam plus were very gentle in taking treats by hand. Mr. Jack was a bit eager plus mouthy when offered treats. He was not scenting as strongly as the two girls.
 
The girls are excelling with their touch training, including startle reflex. Mr. Jack also appeared to be doing excellent with his startle reflex.
 
Scent work is great mental stimulation for any dog, and especially for The Three’s Company pups. It is also a great skill to have for their immense quality of life.
 
Their next vet visit on August 16th is for their spays/neuter, pre-operative bloodwork, and microchips. We will re-weigh and dispense their next doses of flea/tick/heartworm meds at that time.
 
A few weeks after that, two of the three should be ready to make their special announcements! Miss Janet shall probably remain as part of our Haven program. Yet, we shall see!
 

I am a bit behind with some posts!!
 
The Three’s Company Pups were at the Vet on June 28th for their boosters, eye checks, next weigh-in, and next round of flea/tick/hw meds.
 
They had a blast seeing each other again!
 
Thank you again to Jack’s foster mama for holding down the fort in the exam room as there were many tech apts booked, and I had to run a catheter for a patient euthanasia.
This is a collage of all three, and I got a great pic of the Vet looking at Mr. Jacks one eye.
 
Right now, their eyes are doing well, and we will re-visit at their booster apt in a couple of weeks to see how they are doing.
 
They do not have chronic pain or infections, and while they are abnormal – typical for many DM eyes – they are not bothered by them.
 
They are booked for their spays/neuter a few weeks after their final vaccines too.
 
I am still confident about the special needs pups of Miss Chrissy & Mr. Jack going up for adoption at some point. Special needs Miss Janet remains a big ‘if’. It may be in her best interest to be part of our Haven Program.
 
She has come far and one step at a time! No rush….
 
Miss Janet weighed: 9 kgs
Miss Chrissy weighed: 9.5 kgs
Mr. Jack weighed: 9.3 kgs
 

My last post of my night!
 
Miss Janet! One of our Three’s Company Pups.
 
Puppies are so adorable….when they are sleeping! 
Miss Chrissy prefers to hog the a/c vent when power snoozing… 
 
From our home to all of our friends, family, and supporters, the best good night wishes are being sent! 
 

Food coma baby!
 
Thanks, Sean for sending me this great pic at work!
 
Miss Janet, one of our Three’s Company pups, is fast asleep against one of the toy bins and giant stuffie! 
 
This is what your kind generous support means to the animals – a full tummy, great vetting, and the ability to sleep blissfully in a safe loving home! No worries to be had for this wee 3-month-old special needs beauty!

My beautiful girls! Miss Janet & Miss Chrissy.

Mr. Jack’s facial expressions just crack me up!

Finally!! A good pic of all three! Took me until the end of the event yet, I did get some nice ones of the three of them hanging out!

Thank you SO much to Cassy Montgomery for hosting us today, and being the best of puppy sitters! 

A wonderful $253.50 was raised – Empties to still be returned for the final total.

Thank you to everyone that came out & was very lovely to also see Amy with Miss Hazel (formerly known as our BHRR’s Whisper!).

The Three’s Company puppies had another fabulous day, and it was awesome to get all three back together to play.

Thank you again Megan Wright for dropping Mr. Jack off at our event. All three had a good power snooze in our truck on our way back to your home.

 

Three wee piggie tushes! The Three Company’s Aussie pups.
 
We are at 37 Dressler in Kanata until 3 pm today!!
 
Doing nails, glands & ears!
 
Collecting Empties & Canadian Tire $ too.
 
They look like they are in Fort Knox as Mr. Jack kept escaping. So, Cassy Montgomery had another xpen and we ended up having to put it on top & then a baby gate on another section….
Smart puppies!!
 
So nice to see them all together again….yet, as predicted Miss Janet is being pushed aside so, it was an excellent decision to move Mr. Jack to a foster home separate from his sisters.
 
He has been a turkey to Miss Janet. He is going to have to learn to be gentle and not ‘throw’ his bigger weight around…..bully behaviour is not permitted! 
 
Mr. Jack is so people-oriented in addition to animal-oriented….
 
 

Here at Brockville Hyundai Charity BBQ/Car Wash For BHRR! Until 2 pm!

Miss Janet & Miss Chrissy – two of our Three’s Company Puppies are also in attendance.

Well, it was an adventure!! 
 
Introducing…..Miss Janet, Miss Chrissy & Mr. Jack! Our Three’s Company Pups. They are Aussies.
 
So grateful to Megan Wright for road tripping with me! Miss Janet was appreciative too!
We were first aware of two yet there turned out to be three special needs Aussies that the breeders wanted us to assist. Originally, they were going to euthanise two of the pups, a Vet Tech at the Hospital heard, then got involved to find an experienced special needs rescue for them.
 
They are 9.5 weeks old, and all have various degrees of visual impairment. Will take some time to determine the level of hearing….
 
We will also need to determine if any eye enucleations will be necessary.
 
Amazing how great Dogs that are born with visual and/or hearing impairments adapt as they do not know any different. This is normal for them.
 
Right now, we are trying to make contact with the home that was going to temp foster them…I have been trying to confirm the arrangements since last night so I hope all is ok… 
 
With Miss Agatha having her spay on Tuesday and with my foot/heel, I would prefer them to be temp fostered, at least for now.
 
Just want to post a request to see if we have any homes that may be interested in temp fostering one or two if we cannot close off with the original foster home…
 
We are concerned as they have fostered for us many times over the past 15 years….we sincerely hope all is ok…
 
As a note, Foster homes must be able to bring them to their vet appointments. Driving is very difficult with my foot right now.
 

We have been working hard behind the scenes over the last 24+ hours on who we are calling our “Three’s Company” pups.
 
Originally, we were told there were 2, yet there are actually three.
 
They are 9.5 weeks old, two females, and one male.
 
We now have the owner surrender forms in our hands, and transport has been arranged. I will be making the drive shortly to meet up with the kind Vet Tech who worked to save them from being euthanised by the breeders. The breeders were not aware that there was a rescue out there for special needs dogs and were trying to do what they thought was best, euthanising them. They were very happy to note that there is a rescue that is an expert in special needs dogs, and surrendered them to our care. It warms our hearts to be able to be here to assist.
 
Once I have them safely in our care, we will post more along with pictures – we do not have any photos of them, and it does not matter to us!
 
We are calling them BHRR’s Janet, BHRR’s Chrissy & BHRR’s Jack!
 
We will then post re: needs!
