If you haven’t figured it out, I choose a place to feature each Sunday by going alphabetically through a list of US states and Canadian territories / provinces. Today it was New Brunswick’s turn, and this has never happened before in the almost 14 years I’ve been writing this blog. There are NO dogs listed for adoption on Petfinder in the entire province! Zip. Nada. None.
Meet Pugsly! He’s a mix of Basset Hound and American Staffordshire Terrier. Here’s what he has to say about himself.
Nice to Meet You!! Hi my name is Pugsly! I may be on the short side but I am ready to show you how fast I can run!! I am a busy body so would be looking for someone who is active. I am still working on my manners but hey I am just a teenager after all!! I like other dogs and LOVE human companions! If you are interested in adopting me please call 587-272-0390 or email [email protected]
Pugsly is currently a guest of Companion Animal Outreach Society in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. If you’re in those parts, why not contact the shelter to meet Pugsly and all of his friends.
After last week’s terrorist attack in Toronto, where a van crashed into a crowd killing 10 people, The Star is reporting that comfort dogs have converged on Mel Lastman Square where the tragedy took place. Nearly 20 dogs from St. John’s Ambulance were on hand to allow those affected by the attack a chance to decompress with unconditional love.
Dogs are great in this role because they don’t judge, and they don’t even mind if you get your tears on them.
With apologies for this being a little delayed. Your erstwhile blogger has been a bit snowed under after taking in three orphaned kittens who must be bottle fed every three hours!
Doggies.com and breeders.net offers our sincerest condolences to all those who lost loved ones in Toronto.
At last report, a judge in Montreal had issued a 2-day stay on the enforcement of the city’s new breed-specific legislation. Now, he has extended that stay until the ASPCA’s challenge has made its way through the courts. Continue reading More Progress in Montreal→
A big shout out to our Canadian readers as they celebrate Thanksgiving today. Thanks for coming along with us on this blog journey.
A short history lesson for the American readers: The Canadians actually celebrated the first Thanksgiving celebration in North America in 1578 – a full 43 years before the Pilgrims celebrated at the Plymouth Rock colony in 1621. The Canadian celebration happened when explorer Martin Frobisher returned to Canada after his 3rd try at finding the Northwest Passage.
Canadians: Please eat a BIG piece of apple pie for me! (And remember to keep your dog away from the turkey carcass – the bones can splinter and cut your dog’s throat and intestines.)
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
