Happy Tortie Tuesday, felinity assembled, Elvira Mistress of Felinity here with an important rescue story that has absolutely nothing to do with Torties, but DOES have something of interest for cats to recommend it, hee, hee!
This is about family and family can come in different species as everyone in the pet blogging community well knows.
Daddy Kiril's family on his maternal side, going back decades to at least the 1930's, have shown a love of cats and dogs and this is the story of one member of the younger generation now carrying on the tradition in new ways, just as her Uncle did when he took up blogging in 2002.
Daddy's sisters are Dog lovers and the young daughter of one sister let her love of animals and Dogs guide her into a career in Veterinary Medicine.
Michelle and her husband-to-be already had a Dog, our 4 1/2 yr. old, Boxer/Pit Bull, friend Daisy, but, soon after leaving SoCal for a new life in Idaho and getting a new job as a Veterinary Technician (The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) was formed in 1981 and is a great place to learn about the profession) Michelle had her heart touched by the tragic circumstances of a 17 week old female Pitt Bull/Boxer/St. Bernard Mix (something about Red Nose/Blue Nose was also mentioned -- PittBull.org has a wonderful article that puts this question in its proper perspective.) that was brought to the hospital (a friend of ours and Daddy Kiril thinks she can see a bit of Bernese Mountain Dog!).
I'll let Daisy explain it....
