There is a bulletin board at my vet’s office with cards and notes from pet owners. It’s located adjacent to the checkout desk, so there are times when I can’t help but look over at it, though I try to avoid doing so whenever possible. Messages like “Thank for helping our puppy in her final days” always break my heart.
I was waiting beside the bulletin board the other day when I noticed a card that read:
Thank you so much for taking care of Sandy during her blockage. It was a very scary time for us, and the constant phone calls and communication until you removed the squirrel’s tail from her small intestine really put our mind at ease.
I sometimes forget the benefits of a small dog.
