The fun thing, is that she worked for my family vet for 20 years! She’s only a couple years older than me, so she wasn’t there when we were. Dr. Bob Nelson is retired now, but Kathi still works for the vet who took over his practice. She’s going to say hi to Dr. Bob. He was the best vet, and doctored two of my dogs, the main one being my first collie, Kelly. I got Kelly when I was in 9th grade. Dr. Bob spayed her when she was a teenager and put her down when she was 13. When Kelly was in for her spay, a reporter from the St. Paul paper was there interviewing Dr. Bob for a story. They ran the article with a picture of Kelly getting the anesthesia. He had it framed and hanging on his wall forever. Kathi remembers the picture. I had a copy of it, too, in one of my photo albums, but not sure if I still have it. I haven’t seen him since my mom died eight years ago.
So, another success story! I will take a small break, and then onto the next. It’s always so weird when we go back to just my own dogs. I can sleep with my bedroom door open again! And it’s less work, but it still feels weird.
