We had invited all of the children and graduates from Barb's obedience classes as well as the puppies we had spayed and neutered to come meet us at lunch time for a Puppy Parade! It was very cute! All of the graduates recieved a certificate, and everyone was proudly sporting their new collars and leashes! We had hotdogs for the kids, as well as stickers, temporary tattoos and some small toys for them too. Everyone had a great time.

There is no denying that we are rapidly approaching the end of our trip, as today was the last day for our surgery and vaccine clinics. We were all hoping to go out with a bang and have a super busy day, but we performed 2 dog spays, 1 dog neuter and treated a kitty with an abcessed tail.

Down at the vaccine clinic we had someone come in and ask if we could still vaccinate his sled dog team just outside of town. We had decided that Laura should drive up (with the dog team owner following) to the surgery area to pick up Jen, Cynthia and Monica, so they could follow him out to his team on the ATV, but they were nowhere to be found. They had gone to the house to change into warmer clothes. Ok, off to the house we went. But they weren't there either. Back to the vaccine clinic where we started, and there they were waiting. Then we realized that none of our group who was going knew how to drive the ATV! So after a very short lesson for Cynthia they were off! I'm sure that Phillip the dog team owner thinks we are all a little crazy! But they got there, and we had another team of 5 adult dogs and 2 puppies vaccinated and dewormed. Eight more puppies too young for vaccines got dewormed.
