May's Pet of the Month is...... Dixie!
Dixie Caroline is a 2.5 year old Chiweenie from Austin, Texas. She enjoys freshly cooked chicken and eggs, and is not a fan of balloons, bananas, or thunderstorms. When she's not busy honing her dachshund digging skills, she likes to impress her human admirers with her "high fives." A true mama's girl, Dixie loves to spend time snuggling at home.
We absolutely adore you, Dixie Caroline! :)
March's Pet of the Month is..... TJ!!!
TJ is 11 years old, but the youngest soul in the house; he is always ready to play. He cuddles with his four cat siblings like he is their protector, and is always watching over Jade, his 14 year old heeler sister. He is pretty much everyone's big brother, but the most special thing about TJ is his love. He has the most unwavering, unconditional, always by your side kinda love. TJ has a heart of gold, and he shows it constantly!
Man's best friend; not here. In TJ's house, he is everyone's best friend, and the best cuddle bug anyone could ask for!! ♡
Pouncy & Cooper
February's Pets of the Month are ... Pouncy & Cooper!
Sir Pounce, aka Pouncy, was found as an abandoned stray outside as a young kitten, and nearly starved to death. Pouncy was supposed to live with the family’s daughter, who is in law school, but when she brought him home for a visit, Pouncy and the family dog, Penny, fell in love - they are completely inseparable! They run around the houseplaying every day and even snuggle together at night. When Pouncy left to go back to law school, both he and Penny were so sad that he was brought back to live with the rest of the family. While Pouncy and Penny are two peas in a pod, their humans decided a more accurate name for Pouncy should have been Dennis… as in Dennis the Menace. Since he had been a stray when he was found, he lacked inside kitty manners but made up for it by showing his love and appreciation to his family. He loves to be petted and has the loudest purrs! Pouncy likes to jump on the other cats, the counters, knock over water cups, and basically considers everything in the house his play toy. Additionally, he really enjoys getting his canine sister in on his mischief. If he finds and open drawer with little things in it, he will pitch them down to Penny so she can take off with their new found treasures. All whilst Cooper is working overtime with him to improve his manners and trying her best to teach him how to stay out of trouble. Pouncy's mom says that he is beyond thrilled to have won Pet of the Month and is strutting around the house like he has won the Superbowl - he is so proud that all his hard work on his manners has paid off!
Cooper is the sweetest ragdoll girl. She is four and half years old and is a dream cat; so loving and sweet. Unlike other cats, she loves to take baths! When she was a kitten, she would jump in the bath and try to swim. She was never told that she was a terrible swimmer, so her family had to rescue her every time she made the jump. In her mind, she is the Michael Phelps of swimming! Now that she is a little older and more refined, she no longer tries to swim but will sit on the edge of the bath for good company and expects water to be splashed on the side of the tub so she can play in it. Cooper’s mom said, “If she thinks we have gone too many days without taking a bath, she encourages us not to take showers by sitting on the side of the tub and crying until someone caves into her demands and takes a bath with her.” Cooper’s favorite day is laundry day and she will even try to jump into the dryer at times when nobody is looking. However, sleeping on warm folded clothes is always a good second option! Cooper’s main treat is canned food which she earns a few times a week. She is on Sir Pounce duty everyday trying to teach him manners. While this is sometimes very tiring, it is nothing that a long nap by the fire cannot fix. Cooper’s favorite days are when she hits the trifecta- a bath, warm laundry and canned food all on the same day!
Cooper & Pouncy's mom adds, “Dr. Chow has been amazing along with everyone else at BeeVet taking care of Sir Pounce, Cooper and the rest of our crazy large animal zoo.”
We love you, McComb Zoo!!
The Ashlock Pack!
January's Pack of the Month is... The Ashlock Pack!
January is here, and we are starting our year off BIG and a little different - this time with our new "Pack of the Month"!
January's Pack of the month goes to.. the Ashlock Pack!
This pack is such a fun crew to have around and is made up of Little Bit the Shih Tzu, Troop the Pit Bull, Annie the Australian Shepherd, Mow the Cat, Pumbaa the Pig, Junior & Cupcake the bearded dragons, Turbo the tortoise, Yakko & Wakko the silkies, Yoki & Frau Blucher the chickens, Moose the ferret, Jinx, and Pinky & The Brain the Sugar Gliders!
Wow! This is a pack that never stops growing, and we couldn't be happier to provide top-notch health care to every one of them! Their Pack Leader, Emily, has had animals follow her throughout her life, and was always the young girl with 10 animals in her room! As she grew older, she made a conscious effort to rescue fur-babies from unfortunate situations. Each animal of the pack have a very unique past, and now that they've found their forever home - they are all happy as can be!
Thank you Emily, for adopting all of these sweet fur/scale/feather babies and giving them the best life they could ever dream of!
December's Pet of the Month is... Hubble!
Hubble wrote his own story for everyone to enjoy, so here it goes:
Hi! I'm Hubble. I was born in Oklahoma on March 18, 2004. My Mom bought me when I was 3 months old and I weighed almost 2 pounds (see my baby picture). She thought I was the cutest baby in the whole world... and that was so special to me that I raced up and down, around and around the room so that the lady (my new Mom) would notice me, and take me home with her. It worked!
We lived in Clear Lake for ten years. My parents owned a store in Galveston, on the Strand. I became a working puppy right away. Mom and I drove to Galveston each day to work at our store. I loved it because everyone that came into the store stopped and talked to me. Mom kept me in a little crate next to her desk. We even packed our lunch each day and ate in her office.
In 2014 we moved to Bee Cave. I met our wonderful Doctor, Jackie Chow at that time. She has taken such good care of me. Mom, Dad and I love her.
You're very special to us too, Hubble! Merry Christmas!
November's Pet of the Month is... Major!
Major is a three year old English Mastiff. Don't be intimidated by his massive size. He is a big teddy bear. A true gentle giant. Major loves nothing more then to snuggle right up next to his owners and get lots of love. He will nudge you with his giant head if you stop petting him. And there is no saying no to him when he wants to sleep in bed with his owners. He thinks he is a 200 pound lap dog. Major always enjoys his visits to Bee Vet where he gets all the attention from the ladies!
October's Pet of the Month goes to . . . Missouri!
Missouri is a Flemish Giant Rabbit who just celebrated his 9th birthday (in human years!). He was born in Baton Rouge, LA, and his mom adopted him when he was 3 years old. His favorite treats are strawberries, bananas, and mint. He likes running, hopping and having his nose tickled. He lives with his mom & dad, and his two brothers -- Jackson the dog, and George the cat!
September's Pet of the Month goes to ... Cammie!
Cammie is a German Short-Haired Pointer who will turn 12 this month. Her family adopted her when she was around 1 or 2 from Etosha Rescue and Adoption Center in Seguin, TX. Her previous owner surrendered her when he discovered she wouldn't hunt. As it turns out, Cammie has issues with loud noises, including guns, and thunder, so hunting wasn't exactly her idea of a good time. She still enjoys treeing an occasional squirrel, though! Cammie was diagnosed with a malignant tumor recently. "Dr. Chow did a great job with her surgery and we are so grateful," said Cammie's mom. Cammie enjoys sunbathing, deck sitting, park walking, and playing with her dog brother Jack. Her favorite pastime by far, though, is eating!
Happy Birthday Month, Cammie!
August's Pet of the Month goes to ... Bella!
Bella was found by her parents on Lakeway Swap. Her photo was posted from a local rescue site that was desperately trying to move her from a shelter in Fort Stockton, TX to a "no kill shelter" here in Austin - or even a foster until someone could adopt her. Unfortunately, it was her last day before being euthanized in Fort Stockton. Bella’s parents saw her photo and immediately knew that she was not going to die, but come live with them forever.
Bella was a terrible mess, full of ticks and worms and malnourished. She was surrendered by her owner at only at 3 months old! This poor little pup never knew what a soft bed or a squeaky toy was! Her new brother, Hondo, is a 2 year old shepherd that looks identical to her. In fact, Bella’s new nickname is, "mini me" and the two of them absolutely love each other!
We are so grateful that Bella is now a part of our BEEVET family, and we look forward to watching her grow!
"We are so very thankful to everyone at BEEVET Animal Hospital for helping Bella recover in full! Without their help she would have surely died. Now she is a sweet, happy and healthy puppy with a long, long life ahead of her. Thank you again, BEEVET Animal Hospital!"
Zippy Jalapeño and Cheese
July's Pets of the Month goes to ... Zippy Jalapeño & Cheese!
Though they looks like siblings, Zippy Jalapeño (bottom) and Cheese (top) are not related. Both, however, are rescues. Their Mom and Dad got Zippy in March of 2007 when he was about four months old. Just a few months later, they stumbled upon two 5 week old kittens, brother and sister, named Cheese and Cracker who had been abandoned at a wildlife rescue center near Fredricksburg. Their parents could only take one, and they chose Cheese and took her home two weeks later. Both are indoor only pets but Zip constantly looks for opportunities to slip out an open door...Cheese will bring up the rear a few seconds later. Both love their friends at BEEVET - and we love them, too!
June's Pet of the Month goes to ... Hondo!
Hondo is an 8 year old Black Labrador Retriever who is a long time member of the BEEVET family. He is a goofball in every way, and LOVES getting his ears rubbed! He talks, and talks, and talks, and will nudge your hand if you attempt to stop the ear rubs. You can always tell it's Hondo by the big smile he wears that shows that cute black spot on his pink tongue!
We love you, Hondo!
