Low Cost Pet Vaccinations

Low Cost Pet Vaccinations 4/25/20

As most Americans, Fetching Lab has been closely following world events surrounding the Covid-19 epidemic. We hope all of you and your families are doing well. We firmly believe that while this crisis is still in effect, we cannot allow other health related issues to be ignored. We have seen numerous posts from individuals looking to get vaccinations for their Pets but have had challenges due to limited Vet hours or Vets that have temporarily closed. With this, Fetching Lab Taproom, after consulting local officials for instructions, will continue with our bi-monthly low-cost pet vaccination days at the Taproom (221 6th St N, Texas City, 77590). The next event will take place April 25 from 2PM until 4:45PM. Social distancing will be enforced. This is a public service event, not a social gathering until the stay at home orders are removed.

If your pets need their vaccinations, please review and be prepared for the below scenarios:

#1 No Rain: If the weather is cooperating (no rain) we will hold the event outside of the Taproom in the yard area as we have for previous Vaccination Days. This will allow plenty of room for the recommended 6 Feet of Social Distancing. As Doggos are very bad with social distancing in general we will be placing marks to remind them how to keep their distance.

#2 Raining: If it does start to rain, we will have Pet Vaccination Service set up inside at the back of the taproom. In this situation, we request that you enter through the Taproom’s single side-door entrance (3rd Avenue) to check in your pet. The front door will be for Fetching Lab Taproom Beer To-Go customers. We will have signs on the doors to assist. The staff will take your phone number and then request that you wait in your car. You will be called when it is your turn with the doctor. This will allow us to ensure social distancing requirements are met, including not having more than 10 people in the facility. This will also physically separate pet vaccinations from regular business customers to ensure the safety of both. We will of course be sanitizing the facility as always for your safety.

During this time, Fetching Lab Beer will be available only in To-Go formats. Our Dining area is still closed, and we will not be serving for onsite consumption. If you would like to order online prior to your visit you can do so here: https://fetchinglabbrewery.square.site/

VOTE DOG-Issues Update

VOTE DOG

Issues Update- Food and Feeding Order

We here at K9NN are hoping that you are all staying safe during the Covid-19 outbreak.  We fully understand that this is a major health crisis that is facing our whole nation.  This has somewhat interrupted our local election townhall meetings where we bring you candidates looking to be immediately elected (adopted).  While we are working to identify new ways to promote the local doggo candidates and Save-A-Life, we also understand that the details surrounding some Doggo issues must still be addressed if we are to move forward with electing a Leader of the Pack.  As the election is still planned to be held in November, we would like to take this opportunity to address another of the key issues that plague the K9 community and see what the candidates have to say about it. 

While much effort has been put into determining what issues are most important to Doggos, it is the details surrounding these issues that the Leader of the Pack must address.  For example, while polling indicates that most Doggos are Pro-eating (at least 235% favorability), it is far from being settled as to the order in which the food is to be placed.  This issue was forced to the forefront of national concern with the arrival of a 4th Doggo into the Pack followed shortly thereafter by the great food-bowl mix up of November 4, 2019 (See Doggopedia: The November Food Tragedy).  Is it nobler in the hearts of dogs to allow the Hu-mans to place the bowls down in their own chosen order or to suffer the indignation of wrong bowl placement?  That is the question that must be answered.

United Retrievers Party

We took this opportunity to sit down with each of the four Candidates to ask them their thoughts on this key issue.  Mrs. Bella R Dogga, United Retriever’s Party Candidate as well as CCO of Fetching Lab Brewery was kind enough to not only sit down with us at our studio but she also brought us an amazing selection of Fetching Lab Beers for us to enjoy.  Thank you Bella… you are a Good-Girl!  Through her work guiding Fetching Lab Brewery and Taproom, Mrs. Dogga has acquired extensive experience with Hu-mans, “I’ve been at this a long time.  I do believe that the Hu-mans can handle this task.  Everyone will get fed.”  She further expressed her understanding that it can be hard waiting for your bowl to be placed in the correct spot, “it’s just not worth all the jumping up and down and spinning in circles that some Doggos do.”  It is believed that this last comment was in reference to General Ruffington’s unofficial nickname, “Fidget-Spinner”.  We then took the opportunity to turn the conversation to Mrs Dogga’s personal experience of the November Food Tragedy.  She stated, “I do admit, finding a bowl that was not mine in my spot was quite a blow, but the “Dad” seems contrite about it and we will continue to monitor his activities.” As to her overall stance regarding feeding order, she stated, “My administration pledges to dedicate sufficient resources into the development of efficient food distribution techniques in an effort to allocate more time for retrieving activities.”

Doggos Encouraging Reform

We then visited Prof. Oberon O P Slobbar at his office.  Prof Sobbar, the current frontrunner of the Doggos Encouraging Reform Party, is best known for his anti-“Enough” stance.  The interview took an almost immediate turn when Prof. Slobbar stated, “The real issue is, why only the food in “the bowl”?  It is a known fact, backed up by years of observation, that there is an endless supply of food in the Magic Food Room.  Why do we only get what the Hu-mans put into our bowls and call “Enough”?”  After showing us several photos of what appears to be a very tightly closed door, Prof Slobbar (after once again reminding us it is pronounced “Slow-Bear”) stated, “We must work to remove all impediments to our access to the Magic Food Room.  I pledge I will work to get the Hu-mans to open that door permanently!”  He then mumbled something about needing to think on the matter and proceeded to take a nap. 

Unverified- Magic Food Room Door
Shepherds for Progress

One of our roving reporters caught up with General Ranger R Ruffington while he was out on patrol.  Gen. Ruffington, representing the Shepherds for Progress Party, is best known for his stance on Yard Protection.  When asked his thoughts on Feeding order, he stated, “This shouldn’t be an issue.  The most logical course of action is to place the bowls down starting in the spot that is closest to the Magic Food Room.”  When asked how he felt regarding the fact that this is not a stance shared by the majority of the Pack, he stated, “I know it seems unfair as my spot is closest to the Magic Food Room, but it’s just the best way. That’s the way that it has always been done and all attempts to change it have failed.”  Arguing issues of efficiency and the importance of protecting the Yard, the General’s final comments were, “We want to work to ensure that there is progress, but not too much progress that could be detrimental to me receiving my food quickly.  And as to Mrs. Dogga’s comments, the Spin-in-Place maneuver is an extremely effective Threat Assessment techniques and I will have you know that the nickname was bestowed upon me by none other than ‘Mom’ herself.”  He then dismissed the reporter to continue with his patrol and began barking at a dragonfly that was encroaching on the Yard’s protected airspace. 

Lickatarian Party

Being one of the most approachable of the candidates, we were able to find Miss Piper U McPuppers exploring a new smell she discovered in the Yard.  Miss McPuppers stunned the entire Pack when she became the youngest candidate to run for office by forming the Lickatarian Party.  (The fact that every dog in the Pack is running for office has never come up in conversation.)  When we asked for her stance on the issue, she stated, “My current stance is all four legs spread for stability, tail in the air, nose to the ground trying to identify this new scent.”  The reporter promptly told her it was a dead dragonfly and clarified that the question was in regards to feeding order.  To which she responded, “I believe that all Doggos have the right to equal treatment.  If one doggo gets fed the others should be fed as well.” When informed that the issue in question was the order of the feeding and not if any Doggo should be left out of the feeding, she responded, “That is exactly the point I was trying to make.”  She then took the opportunity presented by the stunned reporters silence to state, “I pledge to work to ensure that all Doggos in the Pack are fed at least once a day.  We shouldn’t have to wait so long to be fed a second time each day.”  

Editor’s note:  After the interview concluded, the field reporter promptly quit and became a turnup farmer.

As can be clearly seen, even though all the candidates agree that food is important, they have a wide range of stances on how to address feeding order.  It is K9NN’s opinion that this will not be a “One Issue race”.  The battle for top dog is just heating up! Stay tuned to K9NN as your Election Headquarters

Let us know your opinion on what other K9 issues we need to address to help you evaluate these fine K9 Citizens and don’t forget to Vote for Leader of the Pack in November! 

Note:  Vote Dog 2020 is being performed as part of the Fetching Lab Brewery’s Save-A-Life program.  It is intended to be fun and to help raise visibility to the Save-A-Life Program, Pets in need and to Fetching Lab Brewery.  We are attempting to look at elections through a Doggos eyes.  Any similarity to any Hu-man candidates, issues, current events or other political ideology is unintentional and should be viewed as such. Let’s all have a little fun and help out some Doggos!

K9 News Network Election Update

K9 News Network Election Update

General Ranger R Ruffington at the FLB Taproom Command Center

During this time of unprecedented crisis, we here at KNN (K9 News Network) thought it would be a good time to check in with the four Doggos running for Leader of the Pack.  We met with each candidate to discuss the overall situation and see what advice they wish to pass on.  We first spoke to Bella R Dogga, leader of the United Retrievers Party.  Given her duties guiding Fetching Lab Brewery as well as running for Leader of the Pack we were quite pleased that she was able to give us and interview on such short notice.  “All I can say is that things are changing faster than a Chuck-It Ball thrown by and MLB star pitcher… and with this “don’t put things in your mouth” ban… have you ever tried retrieving a ball by kicking it?  What next, hitting it with a stick?”  Mrs. Dogga was gracious enough to show us around her Taproom.  “As you can see, we had to modify our business model to accommodate the reality of the Coronavirus epidemic.  Currently, every time we come up with a plan, before we can implement it, we have to change to something else based off changes to Federal and State guidelines.  It has been more annoying than the old “Fake Throw” used by “Dad” from time to time.  I am very pleased with the way my team responded.  To design and implement a totally new To-Go system on such short notice… that’s keeping your eye on the ball.”  When asked what advice she had for her constituents she simply said, “follow the guidelines that you are provided and don’t lick your paws … for now.”

We were fortunate that while we were at FLB Taproom, we had an opportunity to interview Prof. Oberon O P Sobbar who heads the Doggos Encouraging Reform Party.  He explained that this extreme social distancing requirement has giving him an excellent opportunity to gather more data on the Nap portion of his Grand Unifying Theory of “Enough”. “With every crisis there comes opportunity.  I was expending a lot more effort on Belly-Rub data gathering than I could afford.  Thanks to this priority shift, I now have data that confirms that naps can be a crucial part of Social Distancing for Doggos.”  Prof. Slobbar is a strong supporter of firsthand data gathering and believes that his work will change the lives of Doggos everywhere… if he can make the effort to publish it.  Regarding the Covid-19 epidemic he stated, “Hu-mans, with their obsession with numbers… why not Covid-food-bowl or Covid-Squeaky-Toy?”  He offered this advice to his constituents, “Just sleep it off and if you have to touch me, wash your paws.”  As of the writing of this article, he is deep in a data gathering session.

Given all his responsibilities with the Yard Advanced Protection Services and running of the FLB command center, General Ranger R Ruffington was very difficult to reach.  We did manage a phone interview with him which was challenging in and of itself as he lacks opposable thumbs to hold the phone. “I have been advocating for extreme Social Distancing for some time now.  The less people around Mom the better. It appears that my efforts have started to pay off.  Over the last few days, the humans have been coming to the Taproom in groups of 10 or less.”  He stated that the overall situation has been tricky as he has had to deal with Dad much more than normal, “It’s not too bad dealing with him from time to time but now, it’s like he thinks he lives here!”  When asked his stance of the Covid-19 epidemic he responded, “Exactly 3 feet outside the back door, facing the Yard, ears up!”  As to advice in handling the current epidemic, “If you want to stay healthy, stay off my lawn!”

Of the four candidates, we had the hardest time catching up with Piper U McPuppers.  Rumer has it that the Face First philosophy of the current Lickatarian Party leadership is struggling to gain traction in this time of epidemic.  We were able to catch up to Miss McPuppers at a rally in Alpine, TX.  Her only remark on the record was,  “Due to the CDC’s moratorium on licking things, the Lickitarian Party has no comment at this time”.

We would like to thank each of the candidates for taking the time to speak with us.  We wish them all the best of luck in their upcoming campaigns.
