R.I.P. To this little guy, known as “Q-tip” or “Puffball” to many of the staff but most formally, “Cotton,” to the public. He was an old guy, fed well but most likely unwanted due to his old age. He came to us as a stray with a very bad flea allergy and had no fur on his back end. I spent lots of time with him, mostly bathing and scratching his belly but nonetheless, time his previous owners owed him until his dying day for devoting his whole life to them. After his baths he’d be the fluffiest, puffiest, cutest little ball of fur around (hence the name). In the past week, this guy came down with what staff thought was a kennel cough which could be easily treated with antibiotics. Little did they know, it was a much more severe condition that could not be treated. This morning they found him shaking and not acting like himself so they rushed him to the animal hospital. They found out he was suffering from congestive heart failure after they took a chest x-ray and his heart had swelled up to an unbelievable size. There was nothing they could do but let him go… It breaks my heart that this little guy was thrown out on the streets during the time of his life in which he needed his owners most, that he was unwanted because of his age, and most of all that he never found a new and loving home. It’s sad to think he was just days away from being adopted and had just gotten strong interest that was willing to follow through. Nonetheless staff agree that he enjoyed his last days at BCDS. He had a blast running around with the younger dogs and being the most welcomed dog in the office because of his calm demeanor. Cotton will not be an old dog forgotten but will be remembered as a special dog to all the staff and volunteers.
this is the best thing i have ever seen
If employers check social networks, then I’m fucked for life.
My professor is such an inconsistent grader I can’t even stand it and she yelled at me in front of the whole class when I asked her a question about the quiz.
Please hire me because I’m good at picking up dog poop.
Literally I don’t even care I just want to work in a veterinary hospital setting over break really bad.
I already do it for BCDS for free so…. it’s just a plus if I get paid for it and get field experience at the same time.
