VTMAS No.79: Kids’ First Snow

Leaving in Florida, especially the Orlando area, the chances of seeing snow is very rare. It usually is a timing and even then the teeny tiny specks melt the moment they touch something. There are no words for hearing your little ones ask, “Is it going to snow for Christmas?” “No, honey.” I sigh, this…

VTMAS No. 72: Duke the Escapist

Another story from my Senior year in High School when I worked at the Veterinarian’s office. Granted, we worked with exotics, but that didn’t mean we didn’t have memorable dogs and cats.
