As a vet it seemed only appropriate to adopt a rescue dog. With the long working hours my wife and I decided to adopt an older dog with the hope that we could have a few nice walks at weekends but have a dog that enjoys sleeping for most of the day while we work.
As a rescue dog it is not sure exactly how old Sammie is. We know from her microchip records that she was microchipped in 2000, which makes her at least 12 years old now. She does not quite understand what old age means and still jumps around like a puppy at times.
She came to visit the practice this week and demonstrated her agility by jumping onto the reception desk to greet clients as they came in. She was so proud of her new role as receptionist she even decided to try on the uniform but unfortunately this was a bit big for Sammie!
