Perspective of an energetic dog

Hi. I'm Elvis, and I live at the Marshall Animal Shelter -- at least for now. I can hear you laughing at my name now. I don't know much about this name, but somebody said I ain't nothin' but a hound dog. Ha. Ha. And somebody else said that I ain't never caught a rabbit, but that's not true. When I first came to the shelter I did catch a rabbit in the yard. Well, almost. I ran and ran, but that rabbit ran faster. Then he squeezed under the fence and got away. But I could have caught him. Really!

I can't go out into the yard anymore. When I went to the dog doctor they said I had heartworms. It didn't bother me much to have heartworms, but apparently it bothered the doctor, because I had to take medicine and now I have to be quiet for a whole month. I don't like quiet. I can't run. I can't go out into the yard. And when I take a walk I have to walk s-l-o-w-l-y. I don't like that!

I heard somebody say that I could take a pill once a month and never have to have heartworms again. That must mean I would never have to be QUIET again. I would like that. Why didn't I get to take those pills before? I don't know. Maybe somebody can explain that to me. Gotta go, I'm going to go dream about rabbits....

Epilogue: Elvis successfully completed his treatment for heartworms, and he was adopted recently! We have many delightful dogs looking for good homes. Give us a call at 660-831-0420.

These ordinances can help us all learn the laws regarding pets, licensing and more.
