Chief is the baby of our family. He finished his Championship at 8 months of age and is working on his Junior Hunter Title. He will start tracking and agility very soon. He is a lot like his mother Stormey and is a joy to work with.
This article appeared in SFBWC Newsletter as well as the PAW’S Newsletter!!!! We have 3 current Blood Donors now, Leia, Chief and Windi. We did have Roger also and he has since been retired from that duty. All have received metals for donating a limit set by UC Davis. U.C.Davis Blood Donor Program Ever wonder where the blood that is needed for dogs in surgery? Did you know that U.C. Davis has a blood bank for dogs? Well, we didn’t either until we had a dog that needed blood for a cancer surgery. Chief is a blood donor at U.C. Davis now, and just last month Chief received his blood donor tag from Davis. Once every other month, we makean appointment for him to donate. We arrive at the reception desk, he gets weighed, a quick physical and a lot of treats. The donation process only takes about ten minutes, then more treats, then home to rest. What we found out was that the Weimaraner blood can be used by all breeds, so they are always happy to see us arrive. The qualifications to donate, your dog must be at least forty pounds, two years old and in good health. They are retired when they reach eight years old. Twice a year, a complete blood panel is done to make sure all is well with you dog, and a heartworm preventative is supplied by the hospital. If your dog is a female, she must not have had a litter of puppies. If they have been “fixed”, it is still ok to donate. Another benefit, if your dog needs blood, it is supplied free of charge!!! Roger was a donor for many years, but is now retired. Roger and Chief “work” at the Cordelia Library in the R.E.A.D. program. For more information about donating blood at U.C.Davis, you can go online at the U. C. Davis webpage.
