To keep all informed, we are thrilled to report that only two of our group of elderly dogs remain at NHHS.
remain, awaiting their second chance.
A few points to ponder when thinking about giving a warm and cozy landing for a ‘retirement’ adoption:
- Can we give the attention an older dog needs? Elder canines oftentimes need more frequent walks/bathroom breaks.
- Is our home accommodating for an older dog? Old dogs have difficulties negotiating stairs.
- Are we prepared for the health issues that might arise, sooner rather than later? We will all eventually deal with health issues associated with advanced age.
If your hearts are especially big, then Bear or Cody would love for you to visit them.
Bear has been spending time in the administrati
ve offices where he has received lots of attention from staff andvolunteers alike. Once he realized it was okay to hop up on the sofa in our Executive Director’s office, well, he thought he was in heaven. We continue to provide the medical care he needs for a full recovery from the emaciated,neglected dog he once was. He met our office cat Elle yesterday, promptly bestowing her with an affection canine kiss!
Cody has become the special mascot of the Fighting Spirit Hockey team and was at their opening game at the Laconia Ice Arena last Friday. He of the gentle welcome and stately, calm tail wag. Further, our man Cody has been active on the Pet Therapy circuit, even as he in older and wiser, still spritely enough to visit the retirement homes in the community. Cody is a wonderful boy with and companionship to give.
We thank those recent adopters who opened their hearts and homes to Zak, Cooper, Mackenzie, Leigh, and Frosty.
