Because she has encouraged Anne for almost four years now.
Because, a couple of years ago, she told Anne that when she was fifteen, she could start to do some shadowing.
Because now that Anne is fifteen, she is going to start some shadowing. (Watching surgery is not my idea of a good time, but apparently it's Anne's, because she couldn't be happier.)
Because I love a vet that I can laugh and cry with, and who hugs me before I leave. (I won't tell you everything we talked about, but I can tell you that the next customer in the clinic might have been wondering why it took half an hour for my cat to get two shots.)
That is why I love our vet.
