February
 
February Fundraiser - Simply Delicious Chocolate Bars

From the Boston Terrier/Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba

Wow! The rescue is full! We have 21 dogs in foster care at the moment ... and five more are expected next Saturday ...8 of these dogs need all their vetting done !! We had a sweet little Boston/Daxie Cross surrendered yesterday .. in addition to needing to be neutered and have his shots done,'Wishbone' also has Demodex Mange and will require two months of treatments to heal his red,itchy and irritated skin.

We thought we would try a simple fundraiser for February, asking some of our incredible supporters to sell a box of chocolate bars to their friends, family and co-workers. Valentine's Day is just around the corner and who doesn't need a treat for someone in their life?

People love the Simply Delicious Chocolate Bars, made in canada by the way... we will make you a box of 30 assorted chocolate bars .. deliver them to you .. collect the $60.00 from you per box. $30.00 pays for the chocolate bars and $30.00 goes to the vet bills of the 8 kids who need spay/neuter surgeries in the next couple of weeks.

Please let us know how many boxes you would like to take and we will place the order for them on February 2 and deliver them to you shortly after. If we can find enough people to sell 10 boxes ... that is $300.00 for the dogs on our care. That $300.00 will pay for the shots, exam and spay or neuter of one of the dogs in our care. Easy Peasy!

Ground Cracks
 
We are going to have to be very careful in the open fields come spring time. With the very little snow cover we have recieved this year, the ground has cracked so badly that a dog could easily get their leg caught in one of these openings.

Funny Story
 
This is from Karen on Sunday's Clean-up:

I thought you might get a laugh out of this. I was not going to be able to make the clean up on Sunday so instead I took 8 garbage bags and headed to the West parking lot on Saturday. I had six bags filled and in the truck of my car, with the trunk wide open and I had one bag in my hand and one full one beside me in the garbage can when some jerk had the never to remind me my dogs should be on a leash. I glared at him but politely pointed out that the eight bags of garbage had not even made a dent in the amount in that parking lot, pointing out also that my dogs did not discard the bottles, cans, food wrappers, condoms and toilet paper that now filled the bags. I also pointed out that dogs didn't tear off the bag boxes located around the park, nor did they purposely break the benches nor set fires. By the end of the conversation, the people ended up patting my dogs telling us to have a great walk and thanking me.

I just wanted to share the story because I thought it was really funny. Everyone is always complaining about the dogs making a mess of the park and then realizing how much more mess was made by the humans.

P.S. My dogs also don't paint graffiti all over everything!

Clean-up 2010
 
Thanks to everybody that came out and helped with this years clean-up, it was a success! On a sad note, Oliver got his paw cut on some broken glass in the quarry. We hope that he mends fast.

P.S. I forgot to bring my camera, I hope somebody took some pictures and can send them in.

Clean-up
 
It looks like we've missed our chance for a Spring clean-up this year. The quick melt took care of that, but what I was thinking is that the water level is low in the Quarry we should try to get in there and do a mass clean.

How about next Sunday April 11 (*note change ) about 10:00 am ( there 'bouts) we meet up and take care of the mess! Remember to bring gloves and rubber boots.

Please, Please, becareful and watch out for broken glass !!!

Nigel
 
From Susan and Jim

I am just letting you know to tell everybody on the web site and who comes to the park that Nigel has gotten E-Coli poisoning from drinking the poop soup the last few weeks with the early melt. He ended up in the hospital on a I.V. drip and major anti-biotics and this is two years in a row that this has happened! I now know that it is from drinking from the puddles and because an awful lot of people are not picking up, it is creating a terrible health hazard for all the dogs. Several other dogs have gotten the runs and one other that I know of ended up on anti-biotics. The clinic is informing everyone the importance of picking up after their dogs and to not let any of them drink the water, so caring water is a good idea each spring as soon as the melt starts. To date, Nigels medical bills for this issue have been $1300.00 dollars because people are too lazy to pick up! The vet phoned me to ask how he is doing and I told her about this web site and she asked if she could put a link to their clinic with the information.

Theobromine
 
Theobromine

Please share this with all the pet owners you know and ask them to do the same-the information you take a few minutes to share might prevent the senseless loss of other pets.

Over the weekend, the doting owner of two young lab mixes purchased Cocoa Mulch from Target to use in their garden. The dogs loved the way it smelled and it was advertised to keep cats away from their garden. Their dog ( Calypso) decided the mulch smelled good enough to eat and devoured a large helping. She vomited a few times which was typical when she eats something new but wasn't acting lethargic in any way. The next day, mom woke up and took Calypso out for her morning walk. Half way through the walk, she had a seizure and died instantly.

Although the mulch had NO warnings printed on the label, upon further investigation on the company's web site, this product is HIGHLY toxic to dogs and cats.

Cocoa Mulch is manufactured by Hershey's, and they claim that,"It is true that studies have shown that 50% of the dogs that eat Cocoa Mulch can suffer physical harm to a variety of degrees ( depending on each individual dog). However, 98% of all dogs won't eat it."

*Snopes site gives the following information: http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/cocoamulch.asp

Cocoa Mulch, which is sold by Home Depot, Foreman's Garden Supply and other Garden supply stores contains a lethal ingredient called 'Theobromine'. It is lethal to dogs and cats. It smells like chocolate and it really attracts dogs. They will injest this stuff and die. Several deaths already occurred in the last 2-3 weeks.

Theobromine is in all chocolate, especially dark or baker's chocolate which is toxic to dogs. Cocoa bean shells contain potentially toxic quantities of theobromine, a xanthine compound similar in effects to caffine and theophylline. A dog that ingested a lethal quatity of garden mulch made from cacao bean shells developed severe convulsions and died 17 hours later. Analysis of the stomach contents and the ingested cacao bean shells revealed the presence of lethal amounts of theobromine.

A Threat to Pets
 
There is a very interesting 'Letter to the Editor' in today's ( July 6/10,pg. A 11) Winnipeg Free Press  entitled, ' A Threat to Pets' by Trevor Kirczenow out at Westview off-leash Park. It has to deal with the city putting poison, 'Rozol', down the gopher holes and only having a limited sign postage, ( it was knocked over). This happened at Little Mountain some 8 years ago ( no signs were posted ) nobody was told anything about it until well after the fact. Luckily none of the dogs got sick.

Update, July 7th there was a follow up story by Matt Preprost in the Winnipeg Free Press on pg. A 4.

Miracle For Mikey
 
Miracle For Mikey - Saturday, June 26th

From the BTPRSM

Just a reminder, the "Miracle for Mikey" social is coming up fast! This is our joint fundraiser with Friends Fundraising for Animal Shelters (FFAS) in an effort to assist Mikey, the 10-month old puggle in our care who has a neuromuscular condition that has affected his ability to walk.

Mikey is a fighter and a champ with an indomitable spirit and a will to live. He manages to pull himself around and get where he needs to go and charm everyone in his path.

Mikey has been medically assessed and he will have a wonderful quality of life once he can be fitted for a "dog cart" that will enable him to get around easily.

To make this happen and to help fund medical care for this little guy a "Miracle For Mikey Soccial" will be held on Saturday, June 26 at Grapes Restaurant - 1890 Pembina Hwy. Social tickets are just $15.00 each and are availble by calling Sherri - 897-6188 or email address btprmb@gmail.com . Check out more information on Mikey at www.fffas.com  or www.bostonpugrescuemb.com .

The price of a ticket includes hot appetizers, music and silent auction. Representatives from many of Manitoba's Rescues and Shelters will be on hand to talk about their groups.

Please help Mikey and rescue animals by purchasing a social ticket and attending, making a cash donation or donating a prize for the silent auction.

Paypal, Mastercard and Visa gladly accepted.

Weekend
 
Hi gang, it looks like we had a busy weekend out at the park.

To start, somebody broke into the compound a stole the park crew's tractor and took it out for a joy ride. That was Saturday, Sunday we had a large amount of guests at the park. There was a chip truck that broke the locked gate at the entrance.  One of the dogs, ( I don't know which one ) bit a small child in the neck area and had to be taken to emergency. Saying that, the people involved had food all over the place. Left a mess and might have been responsible for trashing the bathrooms again! Please control you dogs at all times, especially when there are large crowds and food involved. Please use Common Sense in these types of situations and avoid it all together. Because of this incident, the City pound will be out making the rounds more often. We do not have a completely off-leash park, as much as we would like to think so. Please make sure you have your leashes with you at all times.

Update: Our first 'Blessing' service was very successful. I've placed a picture file in the 'Where are they Now' section.

Tree Planting
 
This comes from our friends over at Kilcona park.

Volunteers Needed:

The Dog Club has finally obtained the okay from the City for tree planting/forestation in the North section of the off-leash park. The City will be supplying us with containerized trees to plant and will also be present to help out & give us planting tips. We will be having a Tree Planting day on Saturday, October 9th, 2010 at 11 a.m. (meet in the parking lot). We are looking for volunteers to help us plant the trees & beautify our park. If any of you can donate a couple of hours of your time next Saturday to help us out please contact us and let us know. It would be very much appreciated.

Grounds Crew
 
Our ground keepers Corry and Dean have left us for another year. Today was their last day. We (as a group) gave them each a going away card and some Tim Horton gift cards as well. They took good care of the park this year and we'll look forward to seeing them again next year. All the best from LMPPOA.

Head Shake
 
Here's one for the old Head Shake department. Somebody cut down a Pine tree along the edge of the Big field for the top to make a Christmas Tree. I hope that the people enjoy it, Merry Christmas!

Fire
 
I debated what to call this from campfire to all sorts of bad language! Some kind souls left their mark out at the park on Thursday night by driving into the park and having a massive fire right in the middle of the Main tail. The flames were so high that it seared the trees all around it. There was some electrical conduit thrown into the blaze as well. I've clean up most of the wire left-overs but please be careful around there.

Thanks to who ever cleaned up all the left over ash, it was quite a mess!

Hazelnuts
 
In 2009 and 2010, Susan Van D., sent in two samples of our native Wild Hazelnuts to the Arbor day organization at Rutgers University in the Untied States. These were added to their collection for planting. The Hazelnuts were the furthest Northern Accessions that the Organization had. The seedlings were planted with a well developed root system according to Thomas Molnar and Ben Cohoon of the Arbor day organization. The lot number is # 09606. In a few years we will see what progress has happened from the Little Mountain Park seeds. Good on you Susan!
