Operating at Kunbarllanjnja
Left the guesthouse at around 8am after brekkie then headed to the clinic to unpack and sort everything out. I headed out with R, L, C + A into Argaluk (a suburb of Kunbarllanjnja) to a few houses to see if they had any dogs or cats that needed desexing. Boy did they ever! A whole day's work, or approximately 27 dogs, were from just four houses in one street. The kids at one house were really friendly and wanted cuddles. The girl who was about 5-6yo could count really well and do the whole alphabet. Both were really confident. Most kids are really shy so we haven't had much opportunity to interact with them. We gave the dogs a pre-med of ACP (acepromazine) + atropine + buprenorphine then collected them + took them back to the clinic in the back of a troopie when they were sleepy. There they got put in either the operation line or euthanasia line. C + I put the catheters in all the operation line dogs. The day was quite exhausting. We finally finished work at 6pm and changed into bathers back at the guesthouse before heading to the local pool past the clinic near 'The Club'. Apparently locals can have access but they have to pay $70/year for the key which most of them lose. We didn't stay long but watched as the sun set. We returned to the house where we showered and C made us a mince + veggie pasta meal for tea. Watched Criminal Minds then headed to bed.
