I went to the VET and I was a Happy Golden Dog.
I was not scared or worried about my scheduled visit even though it was a new facility.
I was greeted by a very friendly staff.
The waiting room was very spacious and I immediately sat on one of the benches.
The staffs laughed and gave me many compliments.
We did not have to wait long to register as we were already in the system.
Central Maui Animal Clinic provided us assistance during my transport here last March.
First, I got weighed … Woof! Woof! I weighed 51 pounds.
The weekly swimming and daily miles of walking surely paid off.
The tech vet commented on how I’m in such great shape for an 11 yr old.
Then, I was taken to the back office for a blood test needed for Heartworm.
Afterwards, I was taken in an exam room where I met my mom.
I sat patiently as we waited for the Doctor.
We noticed that the exam room was decorated with a cat theme.
All in all, I got lots of praises from the Doctor, particularly on how well I am taken care of in comparison to the other dogs that live on the island. I am Golden Happy and Grateful for the care my family provides me but at the same time sad for the other dogs that need proper care.
After my vet visit, I went to the Maui Humane Society.
Golden Happy to provide them the $funds we’ve collected to help run the facility.
I’ve also donated my extra crate and bed (mom made for me).
During our visit, there were many volunteers
working, walking dogs and cleaning/beautifying the grounds.
Inside the facility, there’s a tortoise name Freddie.
He has been with the Maui Humane Society since 2003 and he is not adoptable.
Actually, the Society discourage adopting exotic animals.
Golden Happy to see a glimpse of Freddie.
We also picked up the 2013 Calendar, where I took 8th place on the People’s Choice.
Many Golden Thanks again to everyone that supported me and donated.
If you are pet lover and plan to visit the Island of Maui, HI,
I suggest to stop by Maui Humane Society.
Maui Humane Society does not put a time limit for keeping animals in their facility .
All of the animals rescued by the society stay at the shelter for as long as possible.
Many pets wait for months for their forever homes.
You don’t need to live in Maui to adopt a pet from Maui Humane Society.
The Maui Humane Society transports pets off the island, out of state and internationally.
During our visit, there were many dogs are in need of forever home.
We wish for them to get adopted soon.
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs

That’s so nice to donate your bed!!! I don’t like vet appointments and he has to examinate me first after a round of wrestling :o) But I’m glad you are in a fabulous shape, that’s a very good saturday news ;o)

It sounds like a good day. Lee hates the vet and Phod is a little nervous but ok. It is very kind of you to donate a bed to puppies waiting for their forever homes. You look great in the calendar!

Nice one Sugar 🙂
It’s so nice to find a good vet! 51lbs? Sam weighs in at a hefty 86, and our Monty hovers around 70. I’d be happy to pick you up and carry you around!
I’m glad that you got such a clean bill of health! I’m not surprised that the vets were impressed by how well you’re taken care of. I loved the cat art!
Two French Bulldogs says
what a great report Sugar
Benny & Lily
It’s good you’re not afraid of the vet:)
We’re glad you had a good report from your vet! Maybe you’ll get a brother or sister from the humane society one of these days. Maybe you can have a kitty too! 🙂
We knew you’d pass any Vet’s exam with flying colours! That sounds like a wonderful animal shelter.
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
Kelly Daye says
You have a heart of gold. Thank you for all you do for all the homeless animals. I recently got my receipt for my donation with a news letter. Fun to get mail from so far away.
Daisy the Curly Cat says
I’m so glad your exam went well, Sugar!
Glad to hear you are in good health! My sister is 10 and always gets lots of praise for her good shape and her good teeth. I hope when I am that age I get the same! Keep it up, you are only an old dog if you feel like an old dog!
