I was talking to a good friend of mine in Thunder Bay, and her cousin works with this fellow who has a 6 month old Golden Retriever. He brought it into the vet to have him neutered, and left to go home. Mean time, an older gentleman had brought his older Golden retriever in to be Uthenized. I guess a little while later, when the young lad calls to check up on his puppy, he was told there had been a little error and his pup was "accidentally" uthenized, BUT....here is what else he was told....THat thre wouldn't be charged for the procedure. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? I am not sure what has happened because of this, as my friend hasn't spoken to her cousin since Christmas when this happened. It sounded like he wasn't sure what he could do about it, but I think he is going asking the Vet to buy another dog AND pay for the health expenses until the puppy is neutered when its old enough,.. or it would go to the news papers. My friend works at a legal firm in the city, and she said if he was to scared to do something, she was going to take him by the hand and show him the way.
I can't imagine the vets office calling me and saying "OOPS". How could you not see the difference between an older dog and a bouncy puppy.
wow....I told her I was going to share that story..
