Pugs and Pacemakers

It's amazing what we can do for our pets now a days. The following story is about a pug with a failing heart. Dr. Spier (cardiologist at FVS) gave the owner two choices; take him home and let him live out the rest of his life, which might not be very long, or they could get a pacemaker put in him. They chose the pacemaker! Click here for the video clip of this story.

On another note of saving doggie lives. Oliver was not able to donate blood last Saturday. He has bad veins! Not a real big shocker for Bulldogs though. They are well known to have the worst veins to get blood or start an IV on. It was a good effort on his part though.

On a funny note, take a good look at this guy. Notice anything particularly odd? He's wearing ski goggles!! Are there really that many bugs in Florida that he needs ski goggles to ride with the top down?
