The precious little beagle in the photo is Buddy. I adopted him from JCAC Feb. 2010. The Staff at Circle of Life Animal Hospital have taken care of him for 8 1/2 yrs. He was thought to be 15 yrs. old this year. I lost Buddy to cancer October 15, 2018. The Staff was just as caring at the end as they have been since Day 1 even though he was a grumpy little man. This post is so hard to write because I miss him so much, BUT when we arrived at Circle of Life for his last visit, they were so compassionate. We were taken to a back room. I was expecting a normal, sterile room, BUT when the door was opened I was so surprised to see a room that looked like it was in a home! There was a small sofa, a big overstuffed chair, a bookcase filled with books and various accessories! It was so comforting! They laid Buddy in my lap and I was able to hold him through the whole procedure. I was given a few more minutes with Buddy and then Dr. Cook-Breeze came in. She gently gave Buddy the shot and in a heartbeat he was gone. Dr. Cook-Breeze left the room for a few minutes and when she returned she had a small silver heart in her hand. She rubbed it on Buddy's head and gave it to me. It said "ALWAYS IN MY HEART" with a small paw print and told me again how sorry she was. When it was time to let him go for the last time, the whole staff gave me their condolences. The whole atmosphere was so comforting during this sad moment.

My other 4 dogs will continue to be patients at Circle of Life Animal Hospital for as long as they are with me!
Hey Dr Cook, guess what??? By cutting the Oravet chews into 3 pieces I was able to get Genky to eat them!!! Hopefully will help his teeth for next cleaning! 🙂. Thanks for what you do for him!

The “Smoky Award”! Neat article 💕

In February 1944, an American soldier discovered a Yorkshire terrier dog in an abandoned trench in the jungles of New Guinea, which received the nickname Smokey. It was owned by Ohio corporal William Wynn, who bought it from the soldiers for 2 Australian pounds. For the next two years, Smokey was with her master in the Pacific theater of operations.

The dog participated in 12 air and sea rescue and photo reconnaissance missions. During these operations, Smokey was often under fire in a soldier's backpack for a long time. She survived at least 150 air raids and two typhoons in Okinawa. Smokey also made jumps with a special parachute from a height of 9.1 m. And Wynn said that she warned him about the threat of a bombing by barking and behavior, which saved his life.

Once a dog saved the labor of 250 workers at an airfield. They would have had to dig a new ditch to lay the cable. This would also require the relocation of 40 warplanes. A buried old narrow pipe was found. The dog was placed at one end of the pipe, and its owner called Smokey from the other end. And a tiny dog ​​with a wire tied to it, was not afraid to crawl through this long tunnel.

Smokey is also considered the world's first professional "treatment dog" - she entertained the wounded by showing them all sorts of tricks. In this capacity, the dog worked for 12 years, during and after World War II.

There are a total of six monuments to Smokey in the United States. In addition, the Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue awards an annual "Smoky Award" to rescue dogs that excel that year.

Judy, a purebred pointer, was the mascot of several ships in the Pacific, and was captured by the Japanese in 1942 and taken to a prison camp. There she met Aircraftsman Frank Williams, who shared his small portion of rice with her.

Judy raised morale in the POW camp, and also barked when poisonous snakes, crocodiles or even tigers approached the prisoners. When the prisoners were shipped back to Singapore, she was smuggled out in a rice sack, never whimpering or betraying her presence to the guards.

The next day, that ship was torpedoed. Williams pushed Judy out of a porthole in an attempt to save her life, even though there was a 15-foot drop to the sea. He made his own escape from the ship, but was then recaptured and sent to a new POW camp.

He didn't know if Judy had survived, but soon he began hearing stories about a dog helping drowning men reach pieces of debris after the shipwreck. And when Williams arrived at the new camp, he said: "I couldn’t believe my eyes! As I walked through the gate, a scraggly dog hit me square between the shoulders and knocked me over. I’d never been so glad to see the old girl!"

They spent a year together at that camp in Sumatra. "Judy saved my life in so many ways," said Williams. "But the greatest of all was giving me a reason to live. All I had to do was look into those weary, bloodshot eyes and ask myself: 'What would happen to her if I died?' I had to keep going."

Once hostilities ceased, Judy was then smuggled aboard a troopship heading back to Liverpool. In England, she was awarded the Dickin Medal (the "Victoria Cross" for animals) in May 1946. Her citation reads: "For magnificent courage and endurance in Japanese prison camps, which helped to maintain morale among her fellow prisoners, and also for saving many lives through her intelligence and watchfulness".

At the same time, Frank Williams was awarded the PDSA's White Cross of St. Giles for his devotion to Judy. Frank and Judy spent a year after the war visiting the relatives of English POWs who had not survived, and Frank said that Judy "always provided a comforting presence to the families."

When Judy finally died at the age of 13, Frank spent two months building a granite and marble memorial in her memory, which included a plaque describing her life story.

Halloween is a fun and exciting time but have you thought about it from your pet's point of view? It can be stressful and scary for them. There might be lots of new noises, many doorbell rings with strangers, and they won't understand your creative Halloween costume! 🎃

Here are a few tips for keeping your pet safe on Halloween:
1. Keep your pet in a safe and secure place in your house to keep them from getting out and running away out of fear. Double check to make sure they are wearing their collar and ID tags.
2. Take the party outside and keep your pets inside, or give them a quiet place away from the party especially if your pet has high anxiety around lots of people and loud noises.
3. Keep all candy and snacks in a place they can not reach. Some of our Halloween candy is very toxic for pets.
4. If you put a costume on your pet, make sure the costume is comfortable and allows your pet to move freely. Also be sure to remove any chewable parts or objects that could come off and choke your pet.

HSMO wishes you a safe and fun Halloween weekend! 🎃
