While my colleague has been away, we have been boarding her pets at the office, including this vicious watch-hound, Mitral. Alert readers may remember this handsome Cavalier King Charles Spaniel as the model for my series on puppy handling and training.
When it is slow or during our lunch hour, we let Mitral out of his cage to patrol the treatment area. Here he is on one of his frequent rest breaks.
For the record, I did not give him this stuffed toy. I disapprove of toys that encourage dogs and cats to bite their veterinarians.
