The trials of being owned by a veterinarian.

It makes our dogs

automatic blood donors.


The recipients this time were two dogs having their spleens removed.
This results in a lot of blood loss.



The donors received lots of snacks for their life giving services.
It has it's rewards as well...

I didn't even know A was a vet!! :) Had no idea.
Cool.
And certainly that 'splains why you love him so... I bet he said "Vet" and you swooned.

(Not that A isn't completely lovable, of course... we all know he is.)

Hee hee. Actually, I went to interview at a practice many moons ago, and he interviewed me. It was a job that was paying a dollar less than what I was earning at the time. But I KNEW I had to have this job. Bet he did not know he was interviewing his future wife, or that one day he would not be my boss anymore....
And he is completely lovable!

I used to work at a vet and he kept this dog Cisco there all the time for blood donor purposes. I always kind of felt bad for Cisco, who was very sweet, having to live out her life in a kennel. She certainly saved plenty of lives.

How cool is it that your kids get to assist with the doggie donor bank!!

Lisa. I hear you! These are our personal doggies so they live with us. But I worked in a few places who had a live in doggie donor. They were sweet as well, although they had to live there, they were not short on attention. It's a different life than some dogs, a better life than others. But yes, you do feel kinda bad that they are not in a home...

That is really neat! I didn't know he was a vet either. What a lucky gal you are. :)

What brave dogs. Special treats for them are indeed in order! I hope the other dogs did well too.

This post brings back alot of memories. I worked in an animal hospital for 17 years. We had a resident cat that was a blood donor and the doctor's dogs were always brought in if needed for a doggie donation.
