When you spend every day with animals you wind up with some really good stories. I imagine it’s a lot like if you work with kids every day (kudos to those people because I couldn’t do it), where you hear the most ridiculous things come out of their mouths. With dogs you watch them do those ridiculous things! When Patrick and I get home from work he tells me about the really exciting and intense things that happened to him on his 24-hour shift, and I usually tell him about the CUTEST cat or the FUNNIEST dog that I spent my day with. Thankfully Patrick loves animals and appreciates my stories (or so he says)! Anyway, I realized I should be sharing some of the stories about the animals I spend the day with, or the ones that I’ve worked with in the past that are stuck with me forever. These will be my short stories about the animals that make a difference to me in my everyday life.
