Pet of the Month: July 2013

Pet of the Month July 2013: Baby and her pet parent have a special bond

Meet Bracken- or Baby as she is lovingly referred to. Baby may be small for a Bernese mountain dog but her heart is ten times her size. Despite all odds and regardless of what the world throws at them, Baby and her pet parent Jessy enjoy life together with a positive outlook and a whole lot of ‘puppy’ love.

Baby has a rough start to her life. When Baby was adopted from her breeder she had the Parvo virus, which can be deadly for dogs- especially puppies. Baby spent a lot of time in the veterinary hospital trying to recover so she could be in her forever home. It took a lot of time and a lot more love from her family to get Baby to where she is today.

Does being a Good Samaritan pay off? For Carla Cheney, a former employee of Wal-mart in Kemptville, Ontario it did not seem like it. On July 10, 2013 Cheney was fired from Wal-mart after she confronted a customer for leaving a dog in his truck.
The reason for Cheney being fired is that she was allegedly rude to the customer.
Cheney had just a week prior called the SPCA on a customer who had left a dog in their vehicle. She had witnessed it along side her manager. When she asked her manager what she should do her manager advised her that it was none of her business and went inside the store.

On Tuesday Cheney witnessed another dog being left in a vehicle and the former Wal-mart pharmacy technician took action.

Cheney stated to CBC News that she hadn’t started her shift yet and was in fact in plain clothes and not wearing her Wal-mart vest. Cheney was sitting at a table with some fellow employees outside of the Kemptville Wal-mart when she witnessed the customer leaving his dog in a parked truck.

Tellum is a six year old pure black German Shepherd who is so full of life- despite his age. He still loves to run, swim and play like a young pup. He is a sweet natured, laid back dog that loves spending time with his two-legged Lindsay.
