As many of you know, I used to work at a vet before I became a chemist. I still take all of my animals to this vet, and I’m working on building a new website for him, so we’re still pretty close. Last night around 8pm, the vet called. He needed an emergency blood transfusion for a dog that wasn’t going to make it, and he needed a big dog to lend the blood (he only has a small dog right now).
So I rushed Boudin and Hops to the vet, expecting Bou to be the donor. He gets so excited at the vet though (new friends! new smells!), and he’s a little bit smaller than Hops, so we decided to use Hops as the donor instead. She was such a good girl, and when she was done giving blood (and it was a LOT of blood), she laid down next to the sick dog until he started breathing normally again. I was so proud!
So this is a post to celebrate Hops. You can be sure she’s getting lots of treats today, and even the good spot on the couch 🙂
