Were Here When You Need Us The Most
DON'T TAKE A CHANCE ON THOSE HARD TO RAISE BABIES
I will give 24/7 round the clock care of those beautiful Babies.The health of your puppies & Mom are my Top priority & I will be there when you can't be.
We realize that dog owners may want to breed their bitch, but do not have the facilities, time, or experience to give the litter the best possible start that we all want for our puppies. Vickerybulldogs/Puppynurse-911 is offering whelping/puppy care services to a limited number of pre-approved litters each year. These litters will receive the same excellent start that all Vickerybulldog puppies receive from birth until they are in the hands of their new owners .
Our kennel is located right behind our home however all of our mama’s are whelped and puppies raised in our home and Puppy Nursery. The whelping/nursery area provides a safe and quiet area for the new mom and puppies . Newborns will be placed directly next to my bed in an incubator with oxygen for as long as needed. Our focus is cleanliness, safety and most of all providing a wonderful home to the puppies before they go to their new homes. Our main goal is to provide a home away home atmosphere to your 4-legged family members while they stay at Vickerybulldogs
WE ARE LOCATED IN SOUTH GEORGIA
This one is fairly long but one of the most heart touching Pet sitting Clients we have ever sat for. Needless to say the entire family fell in love with Mookie. We all cried our eyes out when she went home as we knew what was to come next. We are just so thankful we were able to be a part of this families life at such a difficult time. We will always love, remember and hold you dear to our hearts sweet Mookie- Fly High sweet girl.
Forgive me ahead of time for going into GREAT detail on Rhonda (Pet Peepers) and why I cannot thank her and her f amily enough for her services in watching our pet.
Mookie, our 16 year old Dobbie/Rot, was the last of her lineage. She was born the runt of her litter, hell, I even had to feed her from a baby bottle with goat's milk to ensure she lived.
My wife and I had a trip planned to go to the Mainland (California) for our annual trip to go to the Monterey Jazz Festival with my father....a NOT to miss event.
We had a dog sitter planned and booked our travel.
About 2 weeks before our trip, Mookie started having difficulty with her hind (back) legs.
She started staggering around occassionally. And I noticed that each day it got progressively worse.
I took Mookie to the vet and they said, "well, it's probably her joints since she is so old." They offered to put her down, to which I immediately declined!
Each morning, I'd pick Mookie up and carry her outside, carefully standing her up and applying pressure to her stomach until she peed out all she could.
Then, Mookie would not have the strength to walk around, rather, she would just collapse down into a seated position again.....poor thing.
She began urinating and defecating in her bed because she could not stand on her own.
The time came to "have that chat" with my wife......I frickin hated it.
"Honey, we leave in 3 days and the dog sitter cannot possibly handle all this work that Mookie requires now..."
My wife glared at me and said "Don't you dare!"
So, I started calling dog sitters.
I wasted a few phone calls on Craigslist, all seemed very unprofessional and didn't give me that warm and fuzzy feeling.
I mean, sheesh, my dog was getting worse daily and couldn't just leave her with anybody.
Our goal was to have her stick around until we got back from our two week trip.
That was a VERY tall order we came to find out....
Our vet was going to charge $45/day. Which was not terrible, but, the thought of Mookie, sleeping in a cold and sterile environment and missing us just broke my heart, and certainly would hers.
Miraculously we found Rhonda and Pet Peepers.
The first impression when meeting Rhonda, was like "where have you been all Mookie's life?"
We told her how dire Mookie's situation was, appologized profusely for even asking her to consider watching her for two weeks since she'd probably not survive that long.
She insisted that she would look after her better than anyone else and we believed her.
Heck, Rhonda even set up a remote camera so we can view Mookie throughout the day.
During our trip we were inspired to know that Mookie started getting stronger, eating, smiling, wagging he r tail, etc! Exciting to us.
Rhonda set up Skype so we could see Mookie and Mookie could hear our voices, to which Mookie immediately perked up! So wonderful!
Rhonda reported almost daily and it was obvious that Mookie had more love and attention than we have ever given her!
Mookie had lost complete control over all four legs and even her head....so she'd just lie around and move her eyes...;-( So sad
But Rhonda and her family gave her daily overdoses of love and attention that made Mookie really enjoy her twilight so much.
So, our trip ended, and on the flight back, I said to my wife, "honey, if Mookie is still around we will need to make a decision on what is best for Mookie..."
Rhonda dropped Mookie off shortly after we arrived...we were SO happy to be able to see her again, what a GIFT!!
Mookie was both thrilled to see us and seemingly bummed to leave that amazing family's care. Can't blame her!
In a terribly difficult decision, we put Mookie to sleep two days later...(sigh)....
The most important point of this review is this:
I can honestly say that the ONLY reason Mookie was able to survive and thrive and be happy is because of the OVER AND ABOVE care and love that she received from Rhonda and her family at Pet Peepers.....
That was such an amazing gift for my wife and me to come home, and have a few quality days of our wonderful Mookie....
We are 100% positive that if we took Mookie ANYWHERE else, she would not have been able to have those final days with us....
Thank you Rhonda, you are an absolute gift from Heaven...
Love, Samuel, Vanessa & Mookie
