Another Saturday Clinic….

…and another day full of kids and pups.

 

This big litter was all brown and white, except for the guy who was white and brown.

 

 

As always, the guys were champs at giving dewormer medicine.

 

 

And this cutie!

….and Homey and Amber wore each other out smacking down in the yard!

 

Saturday Clinic

As usual, we saw lots of cute puppies!  Ever one of them is adorable and lovable but there are so many!  Most will grow up without good homes.  Please consider spaying or neutering your dog.

Spay & Neuter Day

Surgery days at the Caye Caulker Humane Society are a lot like parties where everyone winds up passed out at the end.  The dogs play and play and play and then get anesthesia.  Today was no different.  Lots of playing and socializing and a few less puppies down the road.  All good news!  And as usual, we had lots of cute patients.  Here’s just a peek at the action:

Nena wasn’t feeling well so she got some medicine and had her surgery postponed

…..she was still feeling sassy, though

There was a lot of excellent smack-down wrestling

Danger wasn’t feeling good either so no surgery today.

Not everyone appreciates a camera in their face…
15049707_10211315813636008_1801272992_n
…..but sand digging is always a popular distraction

Cuddling? Wrassling? Both? Who knows!
14997146_10211315777115095_1476353378_n
Some of them love the camera, even while other distractions are happening

It’s not easy giving shots to cats

Josh is excellent at pre- and post-surgical care.

Our patients are the best!

Little Kitchen Dogs

These are the two fuzzy dogs who live behind Little Kitchen restaurant.  Normally they intimidate me a bit but this evening they were very mellow and even sleeping until I went all paparazzi on them.  The darkness and flash make them look a bit spooky.

 

Brian

Brian is a good natured gentleman of no fixed address.  He loves to meet new friends from around the world and can often be seen guiding tourists around the island, showing them the sights of Caye Caulker.  I assume he makes his living in eggs scrambled in vacation cottage kitchens and restaurant left-overs.  If you see him, buy him a meal and he may tell you about some of his amazing adventures.

Clinic Day at the CC Humane Society

Every Saturday morning from 9 – 11 AM the Humane Society holds a clinic for island animals.  Today was a busy one!  Here are some highlights:

Three sisters who had been wandering around stray were reunited.  Two have been adopted by clinic volunteer Preston and his family and we have our fingers crossed on the third.

 

A big basket of puppies came in for their second set of shots and worming.  They’re sure growing fast!

 

These two look like little stuffed toys but they’re real dogs.  They also needed puppy shots and worming.

And Bessina got a bath and treatment for some skin problems.

Angelle

Angelle can be found with her person Paulette at the Red Flower Gallery across the road from China Town market.  She enthusiastically greets gallery visitors by jumping up and down with glee and yipping excitedly.

Angelle is a puppy-mill rescue dog originally from Minnesota, now enjoying the warmth of Caye Caulker life.

We’re Back!

After a long hiatus, Dogs of Caye Caulker is back.  There are lots of new dogs on the caye and some old favorites that we hope to catch up with so there’s work to do!  Here’s some of what’s going on in the dog world on Caye Caulker:

 

14581403_10211179749314485_3497733424029820534_n
Handsome Teddy with the dreamy eyes belongs to Annie and is sometimes co-parented by Chila. He seems to always be in a good mood and who wouldn’t love that face!
13450130_1291332974233888_3979609685453160984_n1
Rudy and Krispie have formed a club that no one else is invited to join

 

 

 

CCHS Spay / Neuter Event

The Caye Caulker Humane Society recently organized another spay / neuter event. It wasn’t quite as big a production as the big Helping Paws Beyond Borders event in October but it was a great success!

Dr. Holly Gill and vet tech Jess generously spent 2 of their precious vacation days volunteering at the CCHS clinic spaying and neutering cats and dogs and checking up injured and sick pets. We sure appreciated it since the regular vet, Dr. Zeke has been out of the country for a few months!

Our fantastic volunteers!
