At A Glance
11/20/06: Pokee was the ninth of the Boo Bears to be born. Pokee?s parents were from a puppy mill and so he is a purebred Golden Retriever. Pokee came into this world at 4:14 am on October 25th, 2006 and will be ready for adoption on December 18th, 2006. Pokee will be four weeks on 11/23/06. I thought Pokee was a goner since it took over two hours to be born. It is fair to say I was panicking.
Pokee came into this world weighing .8 pound. At two weeks of age he weighed 2.44 pounds and I believe he will weigh close to 3.75 pounds when we go to the vet later this week. Pokee has had his deworming and will do another dose this week. In two weeks will get his first set of puppy shots!
Pokee got his name from another volunteer?s husband. Gene came up with the name Pokee because he took so long to come into this world. Thank for the great name, Gene! Pokee is so fun to watch. He is no longer the smallest, but he is still small compared to Jakee and Rowdee. Pokee likes to bark so we all know he is awake and ready to play. If you are interested in Pokee, please send a note to [email protected] and we will set up a meet and greet.
