Thanksgiving 2013

There are so many things to be grateful for this year.

I am immensely grateful to have such a brilliant, determined, and visionary partner. With Adam beside me all of my dreams of helping animals, breaking boundaries, and creating a place to help them has become a reality. It is the most exciting time of my life, and I cannot imagine how I ever got so lucky.

For any of you who love pets, need help for them, or have personal experience to help other pets please visit us at We are building a place that is all about helping others. It is free and community based. It is also a place that doesn't exist anywhere else and is solely designed to provide help for pets. It is the beginning of a new era in pet care!

I am also so very grateful to be surrounded by the hardest working, compassionate bunch of people anywhere!

At Jarrettsville Vet we are committed to providing state of the art, unparalleled service to helping pets. The staff are the nicest, funniest, fiercest, dynamic group of veterinary care giving professionals you could ever be lucky enough to find! I am honored to work with them, and grateful for every moment of everyday that they share their skills and talents with me, our pets, and our clients.

I am so thankful to have my pets.

I am also so grateful to have a job that I love, that fills me with a sense of purpose, pride, and security. It is a precious gift that I cherish and live every day.  
I am thankful for all of the people who trust me to care for their pets,

and all of he pets I get to spend every day with. I truly love them all.

My dear friends. Who more than anything in the world are my most prized gift.

And most importantly I am blessed beyond measure to have a family who loves me, supports me, and accepts me for all my strengths, weaknesses, idiosyncrasies, and crazy, outlandish fancies.

I love you and I am thankful beyond my ability to ever articulate it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that you are surrounded by your family, your friends, and your pets.

May every day fill you with as much love, peace, joy, and gratitude as a wet nose, wagging tail, and soft furry face fills mine!

With love to my husband Joe, our puppies Savannah, Charlie, and Jekyll, kitties Wren, Jitterbug, Oriole, and Magpie, and of course my not so hug-able but still love-able pig Strawberry. I am so grateful to be surrounded by so much love! Because, after all, nothing fills your heart like the love of a wet nose!
