Cookie is our Customer Relations Director. She came to us as a local stray in 2011 and earned her position by greeting all our patients and their owners in such a friendly manner. You will generally find her napping along the bench in the front of the clinic or trying to cause mischief in a window sill or sitting atop a cat carrier trying to make friends. Cookie continues to relate well to most animals but if you know your dog or cat will be more comfortable during their visit if Cookie were not available up front we can certainly send her on a “coffee break” in her kennel with some treats. Please just let the staff know and we will gladly help make your pet’s visit as enjoyable as possible.
Petrie is our Black Ring neck Dove. He is a bit playful with the dogs and cats, ducking his head up and down to get them over to him, but he does have a little bit of an “eagle complex”. He will lure the pets over to him, but as soon as they put their nose close enough to sniff him, he’ll try to give them a little peck on the nose to remind them it’s HIS cage! He is about 17 years old, having come to us from a client. He loves the attention and playing “peek-a-boo” with the kids and pet’s that visit the clinic.
