Adopt a cat

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

While waiting for Max to be checked out we found these cute guys in the lobby. Huck and Finn are their name’s and they need to be adopted. The receptionist at Companions told me they are great cats and have been together since birth. I believe she said they were around 8 months old. If your interested go see them in person at Companions Animal Hospital, 1798 Merrick Road, Merrick, NY (516) 431-1133. They have a great facility over there and we highly recommend them.


A crazy day…

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Enjoying the rain today? We expect to be out in this weather walking awesome dogs on days like this. We don’t expect to rush dogs to the animal hospital to save their lives. Luckily he’s fine, but Max from Atlantic beach ate something he shouldn’t have on our walk today and started choking. He couldn’t close his mouth and then started pawing at his snout. We rushed him to Companion Animal Hospital and while in the car he must have coughed it back up, and then took it back down again. After x-rays and a clean bill of health we walked out doing fine. Thanks to Companions for doing a great job of caring for him.

We can only remind everyone to really watch what your dog is eating at all times on walks. This could have been a small animal bone or trash somebody left on the ground. Here is a pic we snapped of Max in his cute rain coat right before the infamous walk.
