Baker Lake, Nunavut - Day 4

No dog-sled teams scheduled for this morning, and since our clinics don't open until noon, we got to have a sleep-in day!  Woohoo!
Apparently the new official colour of Team Baker Lake is pink - ever since our Team Leader was entrusted with one load of laundry.   (Sorry especially to Carley and Michelle!)

Today we met Trixie, an 11 year old Golden Retriever who is lame in her front left leg.  Her owner brought her in and said she's been lame since the winter.  It appears that she must had compeletely luxated her carpus and it healed improperly.  We sent her home with some Metacam to see if it will help her to be more comfortable. 

It was another busy day in our surgery clinic - 6 dogs were spayed and 3 more neutered.  One of the neuters was a dog who is pretty well known around town to the lady dogs, so his neighbours are pretty excited that his roaming days are over.   Our vaccination clinic saw 18 dogs and 3 cats today.

The only other thing I have to say is CHEESECAKE!  and BROWNIES!  Yum yum yum!!
