August 2013 Pet of the Month – “RILEY” Notowitz
August 2013 Pet of the Month – “RILEY” NotowitzDate: August 1, 2013
Calusa Veterinary Center would like to introduce our August 2013 “Pet of the Month”.
He is “RILEY” Notowitz.
Riley is a soft coated Wheaton Terrier that the Notowitz family got from a breeder inOklahoma10 years ago. As a puppy he was very rambunctious, from eating magazines to stealing and hiding TV clickers. He is our second Wheaton so we knew that over time he would mellow out somewhat and that’s exactly what happened. We always say that Riley is a lover not a fighter. Whenever we come home, no matter if we are gone for 5 minutes or 5 days, he is there to greet us with hugs and kisses. This past year we found out what a true fighter Riley is. Following surgery for removal of his gall bladder, he contracted an infection. It was touch and go for a while, but after 7 hyperbaric sessions and a second surgery he rallied back to health thanks to the staff at Calusa and his fighting spirit. The Miami Heat may have Pat Riley but the Notowitz family has pet Riley!
Congratulations to “RILEY” Notowitz and family for being voted as Calusa’s August 2013 Pet of the Month!
