Hey, Thanks!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Liz Marsh wrote a very nice article “Top 5 Veterinary Blogs” on dvm360 in February 2011 and included Riley and James! Woo!  Thank you so much!!

The other bloggers are Dr. Marty Becker (Pet Connection), Kyle Palmer, CVT (who blogs on dvm360), Brenda Tassava (Veterinary Manager Advisor) and Generation Vet (by Hillary Israeli, VMD and Phil Barnes)…all super awesome.  I am very complimented to be included in such a great group.

Thank you Liz for the nice things you said about Riley and James!  And thank you too Kyle and My Imaginary Best Friend (Dr. Amanda Brown) for saying such nice things!

UPDATE: Here is the print version of this article!  I did not realize it was going to be in print too – how fun!

What I am Doing This Week, Posting Fun Links – Artists for Hope, Generation Vet…

Monday, September 20th, 2010

I thought it would be fun to post links to some fun pet (and not pet) related things I have been reading or working on lately.  Check out as many as you have time for.  Add your own favorites in the comment section if you would like.   My Favorite Things seem very random when I write them out like this, but they make sense in my head!

♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♫ These are a few of my favorite things ♪♫ ♪♫ ♪♫

Artists for Hope You may remember me talking about this wonderful group here and in the Wuzzy Chronicles.  They just returned from another trip to Cazale, Haiti to visit the children and staff of The Real Hope for Haiti Rescue Center, and to continue their work with local Haitian artists.

Thank you Artists for Hope for the kind mention on your website! A veterinary blog and an artist/children’s welfare blog may seem like an odd combination, but in Real Life, it is a very natural fit!

Generation Vet has a thirteenth episode out.  I am still not over the fun of a veterinary comic strip.  It may seem strange to be such good friends with an imaginary veterinarian, but I LOVE Dr. Amanda Brown!

My Cat – My article on Omaha.net about Max the Cat is up.  He is THE best cat in the world.  If you and I are “real life” friends, you have probably met him, but if you have not, meet him here.

Next up on Omaha.net will be an article about dealing with pet loss.  As you know, I prefer writing about happy topics, but covering this subject is long overdue for me.  I think I have done it in a way that will be more helpful than depressing.  You will have to let me know when it comes out in a week or two.  Thank you Mom-Karen for the gentle nudging to address pet loss and grief.

Writing! I am LOVING working with Carefresh!  Still hoping to work with  My Favorite Dog and Cat Pet Food Company in the World and dvm360 (Here’s my Look At Me! blog post about twitter for veterinarians.  May be helpful for non-vets too.)

Being a Vet – I spent all last week at work (usually I work one day a week) and just loved it.  Wonderful staff, wonderful clients, wonderful patients.  This week I am back on Mom Duty (Haha, get it?  We are never off Mom Duty!) and have more time for writing.  And time for feeding Fuzzy Rat, who is still having vestibular (balance) issues.  I appreciate my pets providing me an endless supply of blogging material, but really, boring would be just fine!

Petchat and Dogtalk – One last fun link, in case you read this today…petchat and dogtalk are both tonight.  If you read this LATER than today, they are every Monday night!  Very fun, and I learn so much from other pet lovers.  They are both worth checking out!

My Small Tipsy Rat – I am going to go mix up some Critical Care and peanut butter, and spend some quality time with Fuzzy Rat.  Have a great week!

 

What I am Doing This Week: Celebrating My Birthday!

Saturday, February 6th, 2010
This week, I am writing Part 2 of “My Rat, Wuzzy” for Omaha.net.  I also celebrated my birthday!  Here is the great cake Abby Vadnais made for Rhonda Eckermann and me last year.  The one my daughter is making me today will be equally awesome, I am sure.  But I just like this picture because it is a fun memory of a good day with my former co-workers.  I went in to see them this year on my and Rhonda’s birthday, and I was so glad I did.  I miss you guys!  Good to see you!
Happy Birthday Rhonda!!
And from the rest of this post, you will know that I am also taking more breaks than perhaps I should.  But I don’t want you to miss these great links!  Enjoy!
My Favorite Birthday Songs This Year:
Older by They Might Be Giants
You Say It’s Your Birthday by The Beatles
Today, these are my three favorite creative representations of
The Noble Profession of Veterinary Medicine:

Yodeling Veterinarian of the Alps-Veggie Tails Yes, I do know all the words.  I have for a decade!

Barbie Vet – The rest of Pawcurious is also an awesome website!
Dr. V is very nice and has good information in with her stories.

And yesterday’s very fun find…Dr. Israeli’s veterinary comic strip

I promise there will be more information soon relevant to the care of our pets!  What has been on my mind most lately is vaccinations and pet food.  Stick around.  I will get out of Birthday Mode and into Serious Veterinarian Mode…but maybe not today!

Part 2 of Wuzzy’s story is published at Omaha.net!

And I wrote a guest post on Mary Haight’s website, Dancing Dog Blog about Debarking!

“How Would You Like to be Debarked?  A Vet Speaks Up”

(Guess which side I am firmly on!)

Have a great week!
