Veterinary Technician Week, Oct. 15-19, 2018

"Veterinary Technicians at Ohana Veterinary Care, Bristow, VA"

Thank You Veterinary Technicians!

WOOF! BARKS! Maybe even a few growls here and there - though my human doesn't like it when I do that and fusses at me to stop - paws, I have to let you know my opinion about going to the Veterinarian! WOOF! 

I am blessed to have to mostest bestest Veterinarian Technicians ever! When I go over there for a physical examination or even another issue, they treat me like their friend. Barks, then, they ask me why I am there. A question I wonder myself but my human quickly answers! We talk a few minutes so they can confirm what medications I am taking, what food I eat, what exercises I am doing, and all about me that they'd ever want to know and then some! BARKS! 

I think these pawsome humans work much like a human's nurse would when they go to the doctor or the hospital. Barkingly, I have to admit, I think the Veterinary Technicians job is more rewarding! WOOF!

October 15 - 19 is Veterinary Technicians Week. I salute all the Veterinary Technicians who works so hard to help maintain the health of the animal's in their care! Barks and paws!

WOOF! WOOF! It's been a few weeks since I heard from my pawsome friend "Lab Lady" from Lab Rescue. I got worried and concerned about her so I sent an email only to learn she hadn't been getting my emails! Am barkingly happy that she is alright, for "Lab Lady" - this is! WOOF!

WOOF! Harvey and Floyd are looking for a "Forever Home" in a single-family home with a fence! Bark! The pair will need to be adopted together because they are bonded paw pals!

The boys make pawsome company to their foster parents as they alert them to humans coming to the front door.

Harvey and Floyd love snoozing on the couch with regular visits to the backyard wandering and smelling all the scents they can pawssibly sniff! With the cooler weather coming in, the boys like to enjoy more time outside- as much as pawssible.

Harvey loves lying in the warm grass and has a playful side. He loves to play tug-of-war and running in the yard with his foster brother.  Floyd is pawsitively satisfied to watch the antics from his comfy spot on the couch! WOOF! Barks.  Barkingly, occasionally, the pair like to do zoomies in the backyard.

Harvey is the extrovert dog who comes up to you wanting to be petted and have his belly scratched! Barks, Floyd tends to take it all in before allowing new humans to give him scratches and pets. The boys love the comforts of air conditioning to fresh air. Harvey loves chasing tennis balls and playing in the house while Floyd is happy to watch! BARKS!

WOOF! WOOF! WOOF! My pawsome friend "Great Dane Dame" from the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League came by this week with a most pawsome lady for you to meet, Maya!

Maya is 10-1/2-years-old but has the energy of a Dane half her age! She loves going for walks, meeting new humans, and is friendly with some dogs- it depends on the dog! WOOF! Barkingly, she isn't good with cats! She is quiet and calm too. She doesn't bark when humans come to the door so they can have the oppawtunity to pet her!

Maya doesn't like toys or most treats. All she wants is attention, attention, and attention. She will sit on everyone's lap so they can stay seated and pet me! She loves humans and being with them.

Maya does get nervous sometimes and will patrol the house and property to make sure everything and everyone is where they should be! WOOF! Thunderstorms and loud noises scare her.

Maya is recommended for mini-humans ages 12 and older since she has some arthritis in her feet and doesn't like being touched there.

Maya doesn't have food aggression but will protect high-value treats like the pawsome meat bone she stole from the trashcan. WOOF! BARKS! She will check countertops for something delicious being left there but will politely wait for a human to offer it to here!

If you would like to learn more about dog adoption, adoption requirements and policies, pawlease visit the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League Adoption Procedures.

WOOF! Do you love Great Danes, but, for whatever reason, are not able to adopt? Please consider supporting Maya financially. Donations will assist with her care. Any extra funds will be used to assist other Great Dane at the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League. Interested, please donate HERE!
