G for Giving Blood!


Blood donor

Hunden vår Jølle er blodgiver! Hvis dyreklinikken vi bruker skulle trenge blod for å hjelpe en annen hund, ringer de oss og vi kjører opp til dyrlegen så fort vi kan. Jølle har gitt blod en gang og det var til en valp som hadde spist rottegift. Jølle reddet faktisk denne lille valpens liv.


Our dog; Jolle, is a (don’t laugh) a blood donor!
Our local Vet surgery calls when they need blood to help other dogs. A few mounths ago we got a call like that because a little puppy had eaten rat poison and became very sick. Jolle did the best he could giving a lot of blood and saved the little puppy’s life!

I had never thought about the need for canine blood donors, though family members (human ones) have had need of blood before.

Lilli & Nevada sa...

What great dog you have there, i have never heard of a dog giving blood, i wonder if they do that here. I am going to ask about that.
Give him a big hug from me for being so giving

Gordon sa...

What a noble gesture; your dog giving blood. I had never thought about it, but it makes sense that dogs need dogs' blood.

Lana G! sa...

Your dog is really beautiful by the way!

GAWO sa...

min sin lille tue sa...

Hei på deg:)
Jølle er en helt må jeg si:) Og så stilig en kar da, ordentlig gromming som vi sier herover.

Andrea sa...

I never heard of a dog giving blood. Now this is a precious post.

Helena sa...

How wonderful! What a special dog! I never knew a dog could do this. Do dogs have different blood types, like humans?

Please give her a cuddle from me!

BumbleVee sa...

What a beautiful dog...his fur is so soft and silky looking.

I think it is a great thing that he did.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) sa...

Aww... what a wonderful thing to give blood to save his life... great post!!!

To answer your question about why the lake is so green in my photo is because the lake, depending on the size and the location, reflects the surrounding trees and bushes that are green all around it. The ocean is so blue because of the blue sky all around it. I hope this helps... thank you for coming by my blog!

KOSTAS sa...

Splendid the photograph, this polite, and original action!
The message that it sends, also important for all of us!

Digital Flower Pictures sa...

My dog recently had an emergency cancer operation. It was during a snow storm and there was no blood available so my other dog gave some so the operation could happen. Since these dogs are so close it was a very fitting that one save the other's life.

I am going to have Ruby (the healthy dog) start donating blood so that other people don't have to worry weather or not it will be available.

Gunilla sa...

What a great,great G-photo! Give your dog a kiss from me!

Anemone sa...

TØFFING !!!
Redder kanskje liv den gutten der.

Har hatt det så travelt jeg de siste dager at jeg har ikke fått kommentert ditt innlegg om barneombud heller. Kjempemorsomt innlegg, og synes virkelig det er listen hele Norge burde legge seg på i grunn. Postman Pat som samferdselsminister f.eks., men Onkel Skrue vil vi ikke ha som finasnminister nei :-))) alt for grådig.

En annen ting jeg bare må nevne, de Pondus stripene..., så morsomme de også. Og det er da spesiellt en slik stripe som er min favoritt. Jeg skal snart fortelle deg hvilken. men leste for lenge siden i bloggen til Koselig Koselig at hun gikk rett igjennom 80 tallet uten å få med seg at George Michael var homoseksuell, og her følte jeg meg meget truffet jeg også, for det gikk usedvanlig lang tid før jeg også skjønte DET!!
Og det fikk meg til å tenke på den supre stripa der den unge mannen sitter og "drar`n" til bilder av Boy George (har du sette den) ??? Hvorpå det kommenteres... "Sa ikke navnet Boy george deg noe da ??"
Noen av de bedre synes nå jeg i alle fall.

Vel nuss & klem herfra i kveldingen.

Dragonstar sa...

Wonderful! Like the others, I'd never thought of animal blood-donors. What a fine dog Jolle must be. It must take a special dog to cope with giving blood.

happyone sa...

I never knew dogs could give blood. What a wonderful thing to do for other dogs!!

Mari sa...

I didn´t knew either, that dogs could be donors too... Every day, something new :-D

You asked in my blog, do I understand Norveigian... I think that I won´t understand, if I hear it, but based on my Swedish studies, I can perceive sentencies from written text.

JULIE K sa...

...men oj så spesielt. Har ikke tenkt på at hunder også kan være blodgivere. Min lille Kira er alt for redd stikk, så hun kan nok ikke bli det : )

organic-lizzi sa...

Smelt..smelt...Han er sååå skjønn at jeg kan bare bli sittende å se på han:-))Fantastisk at han er blodgiver...
Natta til deg,og super dag i morgen.

Stilig. Dette har jeg aldri hørt om. Men selvfølgelig trenger dyr blod også!!! At jeg aldri har tenkt den tanken er nesten litt skremmende...
Godt innlegg :o)

He doesn't seem to mind it!

Liz sa...

What a great dog! A real hero. That's wonderful (and he looks like a lovely dog anyway.)

Flassie's Fil'a sa...

I have never heard of such a thing as dogs being blood donors. I wonder if they have cat and birds that are blood donors too?

What a Great G post!

God Bless and Have a Great Week!!!

starnitesky sa...

How interesting - what a wonderful way to help other dogs. Thanks for posting about it.

Kerri sa...

Wow! This has to be the best G post for this week! What a Wonderful Wonderful thing to do!
Give your doggie a kiss for me!!

monamor sa...

Så fin Jølle er...og så blodgiver da. Visste ikke at hunder kunne være det, men selvfølgelig trenger man blod for operasjoner av hunder også.. :)

Ønsker deg ei fin helg

VP sa...

Sorry it's taken a while to get back to you after ABC, but I've been ill this week.

That's a very thought provoking G! Can Jolle be called a 'bloodhound' now? ;)

swimzy sa...

Så utrolig fantastisk å høre!! :-) Dette skal jeg melde min hund på også på vårt lokale dyrlegekontor!!
