My name is Jill (aka Miss Jilly or Jilly Bean). I am a five year old tri- colour American Cocker Spaniel.
I love a good explore in the woods or chasing mice in the hay field but I am just as happy to curl up by the fireplace or watch baseball on the couch.
My favourite things in the whole world are food, and my big brother Denver, and food and going to the cabin and food... You get the picture. Not surprisingly, I struggle to keep my girlish figure. My Mom (the vet) says it's all my Dad's (the cookie man) fault!
I had surgery this winter to repair ruptured ligaments in my knees. But now I am good as new. Everyone said I was very brave when I went to the orthopedic surgeon. Usually I am a bit of a princess when I see needles, unless I am distracted by food!
I am a sporting breed and supposed to be a bird dog. But our chickens scare me so I would rather be a squirrel or chipmunk dog I think.
Bye for now
Hi, my name is Edward! I am also known as Eddy Spaghetti, Fast Eddy and Squidward (from Sponge Bob Square Pants).
I was born with a deformed leg, which was not growing “normally”, and was brought into Centennial Animal Hospital to get it examined. It was determined that I would need extensive surgery and lifelong care and that was not financially possible. Thankfully, my mom fell in love with me on the spot. She stepped up right away, adopted me and got me the necessary veterinary care. Unfortunately, I did have to have my leg amputated but I live an amazing life, in the best home I could ever have asked for. I am now almost 5 years old and get along really well on 3 legs. I still think that I can run really fast and sometimes wipe out in my enthusiasm to get where I am going.
I have a younger brother named Gideon, an older sister named Thea and then there is the cat, Eli Gammon. I feel the cat is just some distant relative that lives with us and I have no idea why we keep him. My mom thinks that I am really smart because I learn things very quickly. I learned how to “sit pretty” in record time. I don’t want to brag but I did learn it pretty quickly!
I have 2 favorite pastimes. The first is eating! I love food however, my mom needs to keep me on a strict diet to ensure extra weight does not harm my other joints. The second is napping! I am not picky. I am happy to curl up whether it is on the couch or my soft, squishy dog bed.
It was nice talking with you all but I must go because I just notice the couch is free and I am pretty tired!
Hi everyone! My name is Gideon and I am a one year old, shepherd mix. I was rescued from Northern Ontario and was adopted by my mom when I came into Centennial Animal Hospital for veterinary care.
Now that I know what it is like to live in a home, I have learned that I appreciate the luxuries in life. I like to sleep on the couch; dog beds are just not comfortable enough for me. I also love good food. I get super excited at meal times and am guilty of eating way too fast. But, when there is good food to eat, what do you expect?!
I am a bit of a troublemaker. I like to keep life interesting and may get myself into trouble from time to time. I harass my cat, Eli Gammon, constantly. He has learned to stay away from me and I have learned how quick a cat can run! Household items are fair game too! I may have chewed the coffee table and a pillow but they can’t prove it was me. I also may have eaten the philodendron plant but I would appreciate it if you don’t bring that up to my mom. She was a little unhappy with me that day with it being a poisonous plant and all!
I love to go hiking with my mom! I am pretty good at it if you ask me. I even have my own backpack to carry my own water. It took my mom a while, but I eventually was able to learn how to “sit pretty”. I may have been a bit stubborn with the learning process but I had other more important things to do.
Well, time to go, the cat just snuck by!
