Bob Pearce holds his dog, Blue, with help from Noreen Venables (l) and Lee Chiasson on Monday.

Donation jars at several local businesses helped raise funds for dental work for the dog, plus to remove a growth from its side.

Pearce says he has had the dog for 10 years, since it was eight weeks old. He now hopes to enjoy its company for many more years.

“I’d like to thank everyone for what they did for me and Blue,” he said. “She means a lot to me, that dog.”
