Update - BB alumni Molly

Molly came to Bully Buddies from a large cruelty/RCMP investigation, wherein 23 puppies and a number of adult dogs came into the SPCA`s care. Molly was very mangey and the sickest amongst all of the puppies- there were worries that she may not make it due to secondary infections. Well not only did Molly make it, but she has THRIVED. Here she is all grown up and with a full coat!

Luna update - Poor girl!

Luna visited Central City Animal Hospital yesterday where she had a bladder X-rays (yay no lumps!), a lump on her right front foot removed, and her rear right knee surgery- she did not care for the anesthetic at all! :-(

Here is Luna when she came home- She broke our hearts all night long.... 

Happy to report though that she is much better this morning, still not feeling so hot but no longer making a sound, had some breaky and a snuggle.

Day by day Luna... Day by day :-)

Update - BB alumni Harlan

Harlan was adopted from us earlier this year. We just received this wonderful update from him new family. Harlan clearly hit the jackpot and looks like he had a fantastic, fun filled summer and fall!

We had a busy summer, with a couple of trips to Long Beach, camping at Lake Cowichan, multiple trips to Hornby Island and down to Brentwood Bay on the boat. We also took him on his first hike in trip to Raft Cove on the north end of the island. I've included some pics.

We also got him swimming this summer. He wasn't big on swimming, but he's starting to see the fun of going after sticks and is doing very well. He doesn't like the rain, so we bought him a rain coat, and he'll now tolerate it.
Sorry for not giving an update sooner, but as you can see we had a busy summer. 
Harlan seems to be enjoying the fall. We took him to Long Beach a couple of weeks ago, he loves running on the beach. We also went mushroom picking last weekend and he had a great time running through the woods. He likes to spend his evenings curled up in front of the wood stove.

Anyhow, thanks again everyone for all you did for Harlan and everything you do for all the other dogs. He's been a perfect fit for our family, everyone loves him very much!

Update - BB alumni Amber

We just received this hilarious update from Amber's family :-D Amber was adopted just a little over one year ago after she spent 8.5 months with us while recovering from double ACL/meniscus surgeries. She now regularly goes for long hikes which is just amazing as she couldn't walk at all when she first arrived in her foster home.

Hi guys, thought you might enjoy a little Amber update :)

We took her up to visit Hieu's family in Kelowna in October. We were surprised to find a 9 week old puppy in the house when we arrived!

Amber was sooo excited about the puppy and the poor little guy was so terrified by her exuberance that he peed himself on first greeting.

He quickly came around and realized she was tons of fun to harass and had a great time playing with her all weekend. She was absolutely awesome with him and seemed to really miss him when my sister-in-law would take him home for the night. She would let him steal all of her toys, lie on (and pee on) her bed, try to nurse from her, nibble on her lips, body slam her, hump her leg etc... we even witnessed her letting him win at tug :)

When she did reach her limits as to how much abuse she could tolerate from the little guy, this was her creative solution lol:

Unfortunately the one pic we got of her puppy-sitting practice doesn't show it, but she would sit on him and absolutely GRIN while doing it too.

Upcoming fundraiser - Online auction

Since the last one was so successful and covered the vet bills for several dogs, we are going to do it again - We are holding another online auction :-)

Auction will take place on our Facebook Page from December 3 - 9.

We are currently looking for donated items for the auction, please contact us at or

Bully Buddies provides online advertisement for your business on our website & blog, a tax receipt for donations over $20, and of course the good karma that comes with it! Please pass on - We'll take most anything!

Thank you so much for your kind consideration in this matter!

100% of the money raised will go towards our vet bills.

-Rookie had ACL surgery on Friday
- Sugar is in her adoptive home, but she came to us with an infection that turned out to be related to plates holding together an old badly broken leg.... so we have had to pay for plate removal surgery and likely femur head removal
surgery to come (couldn't do both surgeries at once due to the infection).
-Mouse has also cost us about a $1000 due to crashing as a wee pup and his hydrocephalus/seizure issues that are improving.
-Mojo the Chi may need eye surgery
-As always the "normal" small things but that all add up - spays/neuters, deworming etc.
