I have a feeling my readers don't need to be introduced to James Herriot, the Yorkshire vet and writer. Excellent books and BBC episodes. I have read the books at least once, and we are watching season 3 (of 7 or 8 seasons) of the program. Although some people came to his office, on many other occaisions he visited his patients at their homes.
The point? Our vet works out of her truck, she only does home visits, and she is coming over this morning. Penny shall be inspected and give a blood sample and the rest. Penny has not been told all of this. Our vet has beagles at home too.
I have to say, when Sammy passed 3 weeks ago here at home with the vet, the trauma was much less for everybody, sitting at home, and saying goodbye. It was the very best it could be. Today it is a visit to say hello!
