Dallas and Cabo move to Tai Po
I had to go to AFCD today to take a newly surrendered dog for licensing, and while I was there I was told there was a litter of four puppies that were ready to go. Of course, I agreed to take them, especially as the other litter I was expecting from another AFCD Centre had apparently got suspected parvovirus and would therefore not be approved for rehoming. The four I took are beautiful and very cute, although they have ringworm (fungal skin infection) so won't be at Whiskers N Paws for a while.
The little dog I had with me for licensing is a very cute/funny boy which we are guessing is a cross between a pug and a chihuahua. His name is now Edmund and he is (estimated) only a year old. He's available for adoption now, but although he's a very sweet and easy dog most of the time he did get quite upset when Dr Andy tried to check his ears so we would have to say he's not suitable for a home with young children. Other than that little meltdown, Edmund was very happy to sit on my lap in the van and to be petted and handled, and he didn't even make a fuss when he was microchipped and rabies vaccinated.
I also took puppies Wigbert and Dylan to Acorn for their due vaccinations, as well as one of my Lamma dogs, Naomi, who had somehow ended up with the entire top of one foot skinned. It was a horrible mess that I'd managed to bandage myself with my eyes closed (so I wouldn't have to look at the wound), but as I'd hoped would be the case Dr Andy said it would heal by itself (with antibiotics) so there wasn't much I could do other than cleaning.
After dropping the two pups off at our Ap Lei Chau Homing Centre, big sized brothers Dallas and Cabo were packed up to send to Tai Po to join the only remaining Stanley Barracks puppy, Dougal.
