In a week or two, even the fes­tive mu­sic will be start­ing on the ra­dio sta­tions and we will know, Christ­mas is right around the corner. We, over here at Blue Seal, have to start pre­par­ing for the hol­i­days early, with the store and with get­ting ready to wel­come in all our Christ­mas friends who will stay with us while their fam­i­lies are trav­el­ling for the hol­i­days. We have al­ready re­ceived many reser­va­tions and if you will need a spot, you re­ally should call soon as we usu­ally are full early and have to turn peo­ple away. If you will need to leave your dog with some­one you know will take very good care of them for the hol­i­days, call 819-348-1888 soon to book a bed at our well known dog ho­tel.

Auc­tions galore

We have re­ceived a large amount of do­nated items for our on-line Face­book auc­tions com­ing up. So much so that I have had to find and make more room to keep it all. We greatly ap­pre­ci­ate any and all do­na­tions, but we ask that you do not do­nate clothes or items that are bro­ken or too soiled. Many peo­ple have come to look for­ward to our auc­tions, which help us tremen­dously to care for all our home­less an­i­mals, but they do come with a large amount of work to con­duct, so please do­nate ac­cord­ingly to avoid more work. All items that we do not ac­cept for our auc­tions are re­boxed and brought to Estrie Aide. We do not have room for large items. Do­na­tions for the auc­tions can be dropped off dur­ing busi­ness hours and again, thank you to ev­ery­one who helps us with do­na­tions to help us raise money, as well as to ev­ery­one who bids on the items. We hope to have a next auc­tion on line by the lat­est Mon­day and we will need to do a few be­fore the hol­i­days in light of the items that have been do­nated. Thank you.

A re­minder

We are quite unique. Some­times, it can get con­fus­ing for peo­ple who are in­ter­ested in adopt­ing an an­i­mal be­cause while the store is in the pub­lic eye, adop­tions are done by ap­point­ment only. We wish our store was big­ger and we could do both at the same time, but since I must work many hours in the store to keep it open and since we de­pend greatly on all sales in the store to feed and care for all our an­i­mals, the store and its busi­ness must come first. Our cats that are read for adop­tion can be seen daily be­tween 9 am and 4pm as they have a spe­cially con­structed room just for them in the store area. Peo­ple are more than wel­come to come and visit them; whether to pos­si­bly adopt or just for much needed kitty ther­apy as many do. But, our dogs are not in the store area. They have the en­tire bot­tom floor of the build­ing and since strangers would have to phys­i­cally walk through all of our day­care area to visit with them, which is not per­mit­ted so to keep any for­eign germs away from day­cares and avoid up­set in the day­care pack, our dogs for adop­tion must be brought up one at a time. All of our dogs for adop­tion are on our Face­book Page; The Pet Con­nec­tion Len­noxville. Their pho­tos are in the al­bum called Dogs For Adop­tion. In­ter­ested fam­i­lies can visit the page and read the an­i­mals’ de­scrip­tions. If you are in­ter­ested in meet­ing one of the dogs, you can come to the store be­tween 10 am and 4 pm (out­side of meal times) dur­ing the week and ask to take that dog for a walk. If you are in­ter­ested in pos­si­bly adopt­ing that dog af­ter the ini­tial meet­ing, then an in­ter­view is sched­uled and the pro­ce­dure con­tin­ues from there. Our em­ploy­ees who work in the store are not all in­formed of all re­lated to the an­i­mals, which is why ques­tions can be made on the Face­book page to me, or all ques­tions can be an­swered dur­ing the in­ter­view pe­riod. If we win the lotto, we will con­struct a huge es­tab­lish­ment which will make shop­ping for pet items and vis­it­ing with an­i­mals for adop­tion more con­ve­nient, but un­til that hap­pens we make do with what we have. Thank you for your co­op­er­a­tion.

Maria is still wait­ing for a new home and I don’t know why. She is so friendly and loves at­ten­tion. If you are look­ing to wel­come in a new fam­ily mem­ber, please come and visit her. She de­serves to have a loved life.
