‘Vetco’, Dog Vaccinations, At ‘Petco’ — Convenient Enough, Not Sure About Actual Savings.

Given that she gets the dogs groomed at Petco, Deanna gets all sorts of e-mails and offers from them. One that she got recently was for Vetco — pet vaccinations at Petco.

Both dogs, Maya & Braxton, needed vaccinations. So, we decided to try them because they claimed to be cheaper.

Well, we went to the Sunday, April 14, 2019 clinic at our local Petco in Rochester. We got there about 12:45. Registration was easy enough though it could have been quicker if it was done on a proper PC screen as opposed to a 9″ tablet.

For a full complement of shots, including a rabies booster, it was $99 per dog. I am not sure how much of a saving that was. I just can’t remember.

One other thing bothers me. The rabies booster was only for 1-year. My previous one was for 3-years. To be fair they only charged $10 each for the rabies. But, that is something else I want to investigate.

But, overall a decent, positive experience. Convenient enough. There were 7 others ahead of us, but they saw us within 20-minutes or so. The vet was pleasant and appeared to be competent. Well, we now have another year before we need to worry about shots for the dogs again.

The New “Mooyah” In Rochester, NH, For A Double Burger For Lunch.

Mooyah” Burgers ¤ Fries ¤ Shakes opened at the Rochester, New HampshireMarket Basket‘/’Petco‘ shopping area — right next to ‘110 Grill‘ — quite recently.

Since I am partial to burgers, sans the bun, I was eager to try it out.

Got the chance on Tuesday when we went to ‘Market Basket‘. I walked across around 2pm.

Pretty fancy. Wasn’t crowded. LOT of staff — all exceptionally cheerful & friendly.

A tad pricey. More diner-like pricing rather than Wendy’s or Burger King. But, you can make your own burger. I liked that.

It was good. I didn’t have any fries or a shake. NO HOT DOGS.

Gather it is a chain/franchise from Texas.

It is NOT Shake Shack.

I might go again. Might not. Not sure. They didn’t totally ‘wow’ me over, but I am willing to give them a few tries. Must take Teischan. That would be the acid test; whether she gives the burgers a thumbs up. She is a burger connoisseur.

Hamster #2 For Teischan (11).

by Anura Guruge


Click pictures to ENLARGE.





Teischan wanted, very badly, a hamster for Christmas 2016. Since we were going away right after Christmas it was agreed that we would get the hamster when we got back. And that we did — on January 4, 2017.

She wanted a teddy bear hamster and we eventually found one she liked, albeit female as opposed to the male that she thought would be better, at Petco in Manchester, NH. She named it Rebel.

Rebel was spoilt. The dogs adored her — as they had done the rabbits. She had two cages and lot of toys. Teischan spent time with her everyday. Her cage was brought up to my office every night so that she would have human company for a longer period during the nocturnal hours that she was awake.

Everything was going well. On Saturday, April 22, 2017 we were going to Maine for the day. We got up early. Rebel who had been fine at 1am that morning when I went to bed was ill, very ill. It was sudden and unexpected. No signs of illness or distress prior to this. It was pretty obvious that she was dying! We were willing to cancel the trip. But, Teischan wanted to go.

When we got back Rebel was dead. I had to check.

She had been with us 108 days, just over 3 months.

We were all cut-up. This was so unexpected. I did a fair amount of research to try and understand what had happened. I am still none the wiser.

At first Teischan was saying she didn’t want another hamster till the Summer. I knew that that would change. And it did, last week.

Again, I was on the phone calling up pet stores.

The same Petco that we bought Rebel yet again came up trumps.

We went on Thursday, May 11, 2017 to look at the four teddy bear hamsters they had at the store. Teischan picked this one. She named it ‘Treble’ not because of the meaning BUT because it rhymed with ‘Rebel’ — and it is ‘rebel’ with a ‘T’ in front.

So, that is the story. I really hope this one stays with us for a few years rather than a few months. They are not expensive, compared to dogs, BUT I still hate to see any animals die.
