Aunt Sarah's Chocolate Bar Fundraiser
 
It's that time of year again! Beginning today, we'll start taking orders for selling Aunt Sarah's Famous Chocolate bars. Many of you are familiar with the "Simply Delicious" bars that are so addictive!

As in the past, we're looking for people willing to sell a case (or more?) or our behalf. How does it work? Easy - just let us know how many cases you'd like, and whether you'd like a mixed case, or a case entirely of one kind. Each case has 30 bars in it that are sold for $2 each. We collect the $60 per case up front from you when you get your case, and then you recoup the $60 you've put out through sales of the bars. These things sell like HOTCAKES!
 
Please consider selling a case of chocolate bars on our behalf - every two cases we sell is a spay/neuter and rabies shot for a foster dog who needs it! :)
 
There are now only three types of flavours available through Aunt Sarahs:
-Simply Delicious
-Simply Caramel
-Krispie Rice

We're placing our order Wednesday, January 25th. If you are able to take a case, please let us know prior to this date and we will include your request in our order. Delivery will be arranged once the bars are available. Your support is greatly appreciated!!

Barb Wire
 
Hi there,
Just spoke to a person at the park who talked to an owner of a dog warning her about barbed wire snares being set up in the bush. Apparently a dog was all cut up after the barbed wire got wrapped around his leg.
Just wanted to pass this message along to see if anyone else had problems similar to this. The more people who know about this kind of information the better!
Thanks

 
From Leanne

Kil-cona
 
This comes from our friends over at Kil-cona park.

Greetings Little Mountain,

Kilcona Park Dog Club is starting to work on a poster and brochure on
dog park etiquette and safety for off-leash area users . Our original
idea was to develop Kilcona-specific material but the idea of having
common park etiquette guidelines and safety tips that apply to all
off-leash areas make more sense. Dog walkers will know what to expect,
whatever off-leash area they visit. They can also choose a park that
best meets their needs.

Maple Grove Club has expressed interest in working jointly on such a
project and we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to be a
partner too.

We are planning to develop posters and brochures that will target new
park users in particular. We will look at distributing the brochures
through veterinary clinics and pet supply stores. The information can
also be posted on our websites.

For consistency and credibility, we will be asking Animal Services and
Park Services to endorse the information so their names/logos would
appear on the poster and brochures along with the associations'.

As usual, we will keep the costs as low as possible. KPDC's Marketing
Committee has the capacity to design and produce the material so the
main budget item will be printing.

Please let me know whether your Board would like to proceed with a
joint project and, if so, please let me know who the point person will
be.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Respectfully,

Donna Henry
President - Kilcona Park Dog Club Inc.

Clean-up
 
Spring Clean-up 2012. With warm weather we have had our spring clean-up is early this year. We are looking at Sunday April 1st at 10:00 am as a good day to take care of it. The trails seem to be in good shape, just around the Club House and Big field need cleaning. Also with the water level so low in the dug out we can try to clean that as well! So remember to bring your shovel, boots and smile!

Required Vetting for Boston Terriers & Pugs
 
Boston Terriers & Pugs come to our rescue with all different kinds of health concerns, which we will always correct so we can help them live a healthy life with their new adoptive families.
These surgeries are definitely required for all of our dogs to be healthy, but are very costly. 90% of the time we need to do Dentals (with extractions), nare surgery and elongated palate surgery. When these health conditions get overlooked they can really cause a lot of health concerns for the dog.

Any monetary donations to the rescue to help us pay for our outstanding vet bills for Harley ($1400) and Bella ($1300) would be greatly appreciated. Even $5.00 can go a long way.
Donations can be sent to us via mail at BTPRSM, P.O. Box 51063 RPO Tyndall Park, Winnipeg, MB R2X 3C6 or can be dropped off at Southglen Veterinary Hospital an applied to our rescue account. Cheques to be made payable to BTPRSM.

If you are unable to donate to the rescue at this time we understand. We ask instead that you please spread the word about all the adoptable dogs we have in rescue so we can help them find their forever homes.

Harley the Pug
 
Harley was surrendered to the rescue on Thursday evening (Feb 9th) and we went straight to the vet for a check up and to have his shots updated. Harley was scheduled to have surgery on Feb 17th, but Dr. Sra was able to squeeze him in for his surgery for the next day, so Harley got to have a sleepover at Southglen Vet.
 
We are happy to report that Harley's surgery went great and he is doing very well. He has a great appetite and is very happy. Harley's surgery included a neuter, narrow nostrils widened, elongated palate surgery and a dental which included 11 teeth rotten teeth being extracted. Total bill for Harley's surgery and up to date shots was just over $1400.

Boston Terriers & Pugs come to our rescue with all different kinds of health concerns, which we will always correct so we can help them live a healthy life with their new adoptive families.

This surgery was definitely required for Harley to be healthy, but it also was an unexpected amount of money we thought we would need to put into an owner surrendered dog. Unfortunately, sometimes people overlook dental health which can really cause a lot of health concerns.

We are asking for any monetary donations to the rescue to help us pay for this recent bill. Even $5.00 can go a long way.
Donations can be sent to us via mail at BTPRSM, P.O. Box 51063 RPO Tyndall Park, Winnipeg, MB R2X 3C6 or can be dropped off at Southglen Veterinary Hospital an applied to our rescue account.

If you are unable to donate to the rescue at this time we understand. We ask instead that you please spread the word about all the adoptable dogs we have in rescue so we can help them find their forever homes.

Missing
 
Missing Pup:

Hi,
Abby went missing tonight, when my dad (Ed Loewen) was leaving the dog park. Somehow, driving down that gravel road his tailgate must have popped open, and since it was pouring rain he didn't hear it. He got home and noticed she wasn't in the back and that tailgate was open. He guesses that she must have hopped out at the stop sign at route 90 cause it's really the only time he stopped.
We've put out ads online, and he will go put a poster up there tomorrow. But wondering if you could post on here as well. His number is 47904283, and home number 668-1053
Kate

Good news, Abby is back safe and sound!

Chance and Roxy Update

On Thursday, April 5th, the rescue welcomed two new pugs. Both were in very bad shape and were extremely emaciated.

Both Roxy and Chance has since had their surgeries and are both doing very well. Chance's adoption is being finalized Tuesday evening. He found a forever home that has two young boys who are going to spoil him rotten with lots of loves, treats, toys and walks. Congratulations Chance!! We are so happy you have found the perfect forever home. :)

Roxy had her surgery last Tuesday and she is recovering well. She was spayed, had her elongated palate shortened, her narrow nostrils widened and had 11 teeth extracted. She is had a severe infection in her mouth because of all the rotten teeth. :( We are also going to be consulting with Dr. Sra from Southglen Vet about Roxy possibly requiring patella surgery in one of her knees. This surgery will fix her knee so that is doesn't slip out when she walks. Roxy will not be available for a few more weeks while she recovers from her surgery and once we consult with Dr. Sra about her knee surgery.

The total for Roxy's surgery was $1293.93. Roxy's adoption fee will only cover 1/3 of her vetting. The rest if made up of fundraising and donations from supporters.


Any monetary donations towards Roxy's vet bill is greatly appreciated. Even $5.00 goes along way to help us out.

Donations can be made directly on our account at Southglen Veterinary Hospital or can be mailed to us at: BTPRSM, P.O. Box 51063 RPO Tyndall Park, Winnipeg, MB R2X 3C6

THANKS! :)

Two New Pugs in Rescue
Last Thursday, the rescue welcomed two new pugs. Both were in very bad shape and were extremely emaciated. {See attached photos of Roxy and Chance the first day they came into rescue}
Roxy is a 6 year old female fawn pug. She was used for breeding and is in very bad shape. She will need to be spayed, have her narrow nostrils widened, have her elongated palate trimmed and have a dental with all her rotten teeth removed. This girl was not cared for at all. Her teeth are in very bad shape and we expect that the majority of her molars will need to be removed. We are also going to be consulting with Dr. Sra from Southglen Vet about Roxy possibly requiring patella surgery in one of her knees. This surgery will fix her knee so that is doesn't slip out when she walks.
Chance is a 3 year old male fawn pug. He was also used as a stud for breeding. Chance is also emaciated and we are working on getting him to a healthy weight. Chance will be neutered, have his narrow nostrils widened, have his elongated palate trimmed and will also have a dental with any rotten teeth extracted.
We will be vetting these two pugs in the next few weeks. We just want them to be comfortable in their news homes and each put on a few more pounds before we put them on the surgical table.
Any monetary donations towards their vet care is greatly appreciated. We don't expect these vet bills to be low. Especially is they are both going to be having dentals and if Roxy requires patella surgery.
Donations can be made directly on our account at Southglen Veterinary Hospital or can be mailed to us at: BTPRSM, P.O. Box 51063 RPO Tyndall Park, Winnipeg, MB R2X 3C6
 
Thanks,
Roxy, Chance and BTPRSM Executive

Brochure
 
Kil-cona, Maple Grove and ourselves have been working together to create a Puppy Etiquette brochure for the public. We plan to take our proposals to the City in the fall. We thought that it might be fun to have a contest to come up with a name for the brochure. This is a major contest that will be on par with the Power-ball and Lotto Max! Okay, maybe not, how about a bag of cookies or something along those lines!

Send in your ideas and any suggestions that you might want to see included. I'll pass them along, we can make this a real community event!

I have had a number of people comment about the mess left over from this last weekends event. To contact the city, 986 6635, which is the voice mail  for Bob Moskal, Technician for Parks Services North Branch.  I was told that because of the location of the park, it's the North Branch's responsibility. The more people that do call, the city will be forced to deal with the large groups that use the park. I have taken pictures of the left overs and will be forwarding them on.

Clamp down
 
You (and myself) may have been wondering what the orange painted X's were for all over the park trails. I found out that they are for new leash signs going up. Also, we are to have roving patrols traveling the trails, checking for tags and leashes. Like it or not , we are not an completely off-leash park so be aware or warned.

Casting Call
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73sE2gWf1yg

From Kil-cona Park Dog Club: They are putting on a BBQ and 50/50 raffle as a fundraiser for Guide dogs in support of Fido Casting Call. More details to come when I get them as to dates and times. Please watch the video to get an idea as to what's happening.

I want to share some information about an exciting national event that
is being held in Winnipeg on August 19th, and to ask for your help in
publicizing the event to the dog community.

Winnipeg has been chosen as one of six Canadian cities to host a major
fundraiser for dog guides. The "Fido Casting Call"is being sponsored by
Fido Mobile in partnership with Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides,
and several other partners, including KPDC.

The day-long event, which promises to be a lot of fun for dogs and
people alike, will be held at Kilcona Park. Dogs will be groomed and
photographed (at no cost to their owners), and then have their pictures
posted to a website where the public can view each one and vote for
their favorite. Fido Mobile will donate $1.00 for every vote a dog
receives. The expectation is that the event will raise $200,000 for the
purchase of 10 new dog guides for disabled people. The winning dog will
star in the next set of Fido cell phone commercials.

There will be a Dog Guide and a representative at the Casting Call to
talk about Dog Guides; brand ambassadors for sponsoring companies like
Milk Bones; groomers; a food vendor (KPDC); and an events manager to
oversee the whole operation. I'm sending you a link to a YouTube video
of last October's Fido Casting Call in Toronto to give you a sense of
what the event is going to look like.

Hi Everyone,

Here is an update on some upcoming events and fundraisers as well as some news....
 
3rd Annual Manitoba Pet Expo
 
It's only 11 days away...
 
We are really looking forward to this year's event. For some of you that are not aware we had to change venues. We were originally going to have the Expo at Sophie's Dognasium, but they had to close their doors a few weeks ago, which left us looking for a new venue.
 
We found a venue and are excited that we are still able to bring all of our supporters the 3rd Annual Manitoba Pet Expo!
 
This year you will see many animal rescue groups and shelters, animal advocacy and many pet related businesses.
 
We have attached the poster to this email. Please feel free to share it, post it and send it to your friends.
 
Also attached you will find a Donation Request letter for the Silent Auction at the Manitoba Pet Expo. Please feel free to print this letter off and deliver to any businesses you think would like to donate to our Silent Auction. All donations will be recognized on posters the day of the event.
 
Looking for Volunteers for the Manitoba Pet Expo
 
We are looking for volunteers to help us out at the Manitoba Pet Expo. Various duties will include Canteen, BBQ, Admission Table, Silent Auction-50/50 Ticket Table and a few more odd jobs.
 
All volunteers will receive lunch for free and unlimited beverages for the day. And we will be giving you all something special after the event.
 
If you can spare us a few hours that day we would greatly appreciate it. If you are interested in volunteering at the Expo please reply to this email and let us know what times you are available.

Always Looking for Qualified Foster Homes

Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba are always looking for qualified foster homes to add to our fleet of home and to give our other foster homes a break and to be able to take in more dogs.

Foster homes are the heart and soul of our rescue. So if you have a bit extra love to care for one of rescued dogs then please don't hesitate to fill out an application. We supply food, leash, collar, harness, kennel (if required) and medications (if needed). We also pay for all vetting as well.

You can find the foster application attached to this email or on our website at www.bostonpugrescuemb.com under “Fostering A Dog”.

Kilcona Park Dog Club has received several complaints from
Winnipeg dog owners who attended the Fido Casting Call

KPDC’s President contacted Mosaic Sales Solutions, the Toronto-based
event organizer on Wednesday and requested
  an explanation for the delay in distributing the photos.

 She also requested that the deadline for voting for Winnipeg dogs .

be extended in the interest of fairness

Barb wire
 
We have a report of some barb wire near the middle parking lot (along Farmers Rd), coming up the trail from the quarry, going towards the club house. The dog has got some  pretty deep cuts. I'm still looking around to see if I can spot it. Be aware that there is wire along the Golf Course trail that has become over grown. If you find it, let me know and I'll get rid of it.

We walked from the parking lot located to the east of the main lot (the main
lot being the one directly in front of the bathrooms on the east side of the
water pit). We walked straight south to the wide trail that leads to the
bathrooms if you turn right and on the left it takes you to the trail
located at the boundary of the park or you can walk south toward the golf
course and my dog ran into the bushes on the left hand side (south east)
from where those trails meet.  Hope that's more helpful in terms of
directions.

BTPRSM
 
We have created the BTPRSM Silver Coin Drive to help us raise some money for dog in in our care that will require extensive vetting or surgery.

We are looking to raise $3000 to put towards both surgeries such as luxating patella surgeries for Roxy (Pug) who had her second surgery on her left knee or even vetting such as caring for Ralphie (Daschund/Chihuahua X) who suffers from Juvenile Diabetes, or extended medical care for dogs in our Hospice Program such as Buster Brown (Pug). We will be taking all the silver coins collected in our Penny Donation jars as well as any other silver donations we receive and applying it to the BTPRSM Silver Coin Drive. 

If you would like to donate to the BTPRSM Silver Coin Drive, please contact us at btprmb@gmail.com and we can arrange pick up of your loose silver change.

Cat's need a Home
 
We have a pair of cat's that are in need of a good home. Please e-mail me if you know somebody that would like to share their home with them.

 

They are both 11 year old long hair neutered males.

 

Tigger is a brown tabby Maine Coon cross. He is very gentle although his appearance is quite intimidating because he is huge! He loves to get brushed. He is used to being the boss and as such ignores other animals.

 

Rocky is a grey long hair with a white muzzle. He too is a large fellow who loves to be petted. He is shy with other animals and will stay hidden rather than risking confrontation.

 

 

Both of these cats are big babies that love to company of people.

Craft Sale
 
 

The Winnipeg Centre Vineyard 4th Annual Christmas Craft Sale
782 Main St. (corner of Main and Sutherland)
10am - 4pm
$2 admission, kinds 14 and under free
no strollers, please
Cash ONLY event. No ATM... bring lots of cash :)
www.vineyardcraftsale.com
 
Here is additional info:
 
Heart behind the sale:
 
The WCV Christmas Craft Sale is a local, Winnipeg craft sale that showcases Winnipeg artists.
We are in our 4th year of running this sale.
 
The heart behind the sale is: To showcase and support local artists and to encourage Winnipegers to buy locally made items.
 
As well, this is a NON profit craft sale. 100% of the proceeds go to:
 
a) funding local art programs in the North End of the city. Bringing beauty to an area that is often seen as not and giving people from all walks of life an opportunity to learn and grow in their talent. Be it art, music, dance etc.
b) Another portion of the proceeds goes to a Himalayan women's co-op. $300 is all it takes to send a woman to school for 3 months where she learns how to sew/tailor. Here she's gets empowered and learns a skill that propels her to have her own micro business and provide for her family.
 
We strongly believe it helping out these two areas, locally and globally.
 
So far, on our event page on fb we have over 4,000 people on it. We are on twitter as well (just joined) but our following is growing.
 
Our vendors our high quality artists. Some of them have hand their items be in the MTV music award goodie bags and the Emmy's goodie bags. Some have sold their items to celebrities. Many have super successful etsy stores online and lastly many are about of WEST.

I'm a frequent visitor at Little Mountain Park with my dog Buddy. My little guy is in dire need this week-end and needs a blood transfusion!! He is type NEGATIVE blood, and I am searching frantically for a canine donor.

Nov. 17) AND bring their dog down to PEMBINA ANIMAL HOSPITAL so it get get tested for blood type so that dog can receive his transfusion..
 
It is a matter of life and death. Being the week-end the Canine Blood Bank is closed, and I am searching furiously myself so that he doesn't die. I know you collected a lot of email addy's from the petition that went out, so your assistance would be greatly appreciated!
