Did you know a blood donation can save a dogs life?
If you have a dog who could give blood, please let your vets know you are available to help, or get in touch with a blood bank near you!
This is the second time I'll be giving blood. The nurses say I'll be saving another dogs life, and that I'm a hero.
I like being a Hero. Hero's get treats!
Mummie let me on the sofa because I was going to give blood!
I'll let you know how it goes and what treats I'll be getting when I arrive back home!
Nibs the Hero!
Hello! Wow, it was so quick! I was only gone for a couple of hours! I've been spending most of the day laying on the couch and getting lots of cuddles!
The nurses came to pick me up because Mummie doesn't drive and it would have taken too long for her to walk round with me. I waited at the door with Mummie, it was nice to watch the people go by and sniff all the smells at the front of the house! When the nurses pulled up I did lots of tail wagging and prancing around because I LOVE nurses! They give the best cuddles and treats! I got in the car like a good boy and got a big hug all the way to the vets.
They didn't have to anaesthetise me, because I am such a brave boy, I let them take blood from my foreleg and from my neck. I only made a noise when they were done- I did all my ROOOOOOOOOOOOOs in the kennel to let them know I wanted more treats!
When they dropped me off home they told my Mummie how good I was and I got extra goodbye cuddles, because I am very easy to love and they said they will miss me, and to come in soon to visit!
But the nicest thing was that Mummie gave me a special middle-of-the-day meal! I was so excited I nearly wagged my tail off! Dinner! In the DAYTIME! Not morning dinner or evening dinner, but MIDDLE of the DAY dinner!
I know! I couldn't believe it either!
And the lovely nurses did give me lots of presents to say thank you, and a card as well saying that I saved another dogs life, and Merry Christmas. I got all of the presents in the picture, as well as a special package from my aunty Nikki, who sent us cards and knitted me and Ambam glittery Snoods and sent us Christmas presents! She also made Mummie a beautiful chunky purple bag, because Mummie is painting her hound, Ebony. Aren't they beautiful?
