June 24th is Cat World Domination Day. I’m pretty sure this was something started by cats to convince us that they have not, in fact, already taken over the planet. This is just their way of making us say, “OH, look at the cute kitty. Isn’t it sweet when they think they are big and bossy” when in fact they have been manipulating us for years? Let’s face it; cats have been in charge since the moment they first wandered into some quasi-caveman’s camp and stood next to the fire, demanding leftovers. Continue…

Pip’s story started right here at Guthrie Pet Hospital. His mama was abandoned when she was pregnant and, through the help of a kind man and a group of helpful people, she ended up coming to stay with us. Pip was the firstborn of her puppies. He spent the first seven weeks of his life at Guthrie Pet Hospital, getting love and growing. He and his brother Turtle we’re adopted together into a wonderful home.
Sadly, Pip and Turtle’s owners recently went through some difficult life changes, and they realized that they could no longer provide a safe, enriching home for the boys. Those owners did the right thing and contacted us to get Pip and Turtle into a foster while we searched for new forever homes for them. Turtle has found his new family, but Pip still hasn’t met the right match. We want him to find a home and owner who will be “just right.”
These are the things the adoptable dog Pip needs to be happy:
- A person who wants a big dog. Pip weighs about 110 pounds. He’s tall and leggy.
- A person who wants to spend quality time with him. He needs time to build a bond with his new person or people. He can seem aloof when he meets new people, but he’s a sweetie once he knows you.
- A fenced yard or lots of on-leash.
- No chickens. Pip eats chickens.
