Meet Sasquatch!

Sasquatch4blog

A little about the big boy, Sasquatch, from his parents:

How we met: As a kitten, Sasquatch came up to my friend outside a grocery store in the middle of a snowstorm and started purring and winding around her legs. He was starving and bleeding. But she already had 4 cats, and was deciding what to do when a little girl ran up and grabbed the cat in her arms. He purred louder than ever. The girl asked “Is this your cat? My mom won’t let me keep him, and I’m afraid he’s gonna DIE!” At which point my friend relented and took him home, calling it a Christmas miracle. Luckily I was looking for a cat, as her cats were not amused.

Likes/dislikes: He likes people, snuggles, anything a human is currently drinking, being part of the conversation, riding on people’s shoulders, dirt baths and walks.

Meet Mo!

Mo 2

Mo is a happy-go-lucky seven year old Golden Retriever who thinks the world is made up of friends and friends he hasn’t met yet. Though middle-aged by Golden standards, he is still a puppy at heart–he still has the “zoomies” around the house and yard on a regular basis, and is always inviting other dogs to play.

(When he plays with small dogs, he rolls over on his back, so they can feel like they are tough and ferocious.) He loves training for competitive odedience (a dog sprot that we train in the true Golden spirit, to have fun instead of being deadly serious.) Mo recently qualilfied as a therapy dog, and brings his Golden smiles to assisted living facilities in the area.

He also knows how to “read!” He can tell the difference between signs that say “sit,” down,” “come” and “stand” without other cues.

Meet Ty!

A note from Ty’s family:

Ty was born in a flower box belonging to a Norwegian family on a sunny afternoon in Corte Madera on June 4th to a Maine Coon mother and a neighbor cat who has remained anonymous. Ty came into my life when my then girlfriend’s little boy wanted a kitten. I was somehow elected as primary caretaker. Years later when we parted, he traveled with me.

Ty’s favorite things are being petted while he eats, playing treat hockey: sling a Greenie across the floor and he will catch it by smacking his paw down on it with amazing accuracy, and having conversations with people…talk to him, and he will talk back.

He dislikes oral medications intensely, going to the groomers, loud noises, and chickens on his deck.

He’s loyal, meets me every day when I come home, sleeps next to me every night, and is my happy companion. I am blessed beyond measure to have his company and the Campus Vet team as my partner in his care. Thank you!

Meet Lucy!

Lucy 1

Lucy found her family by hailing them from the side of the road in a box labeled “Free Puppies” in Austin, Texas. She is a well traveled puppy dog crossing this country from coast to coast and has lived in New York, Texas and most recently California.

Lucy 2

She is a free spirit and her “My way or the Highway” ethos of doing things has endeared her to many. She is a very sweet puppy dog who defends her home from UPS, FedEx and USPS personnel in addition to scaring off any squirrels lurking in a nearby tree. She is very loved in her home.

Meet Franklin!

Franklin 3

Franklin is completely unafraid of humans, and at 14 years, he will still jump up on anyone’s shoulders to say hello. He’s as spry as ever. And he’s quite the intellectual! Try debating him sometime; you’re guaranteed to lose.

He’s a deeply loving and loyal guy, and sometimes we wonder if he isn’t just a little bit aware of how handsome he is.
