Other things you should know about me

I was going to be euthanased, but I got a second chance and a new home at Winston Hills Veterinary Hospital, where I have lived for the past 6 years with my doggy sister, Zanna the Labrador. I love to hang out in the office, where I have my own bed on the desk. I am also fond of sleeping in the mail tray. I don't like anything to be in the tray when I sit in it, so I wait while someone takes the mail out before getting in. I also like to sit on the blood analysis machine as it's nice and warm, and have occasionally pushed a few buttons and ended up in a menu no one has ever seen before! I have the vet wrapped around my paw, and she shares her lunch with me most days. I am very affectionate and social, and if no one is in the office, and instead doing something called 'working', I go and see where everyone has gone. I have even been known to try and get into the consult room while the vet is consulting. Nothing much bothers me, and I am very easy-going and calm (I don't have a mean bone in my body). I also enjoy spending time in the garden, and come in through the office window covered in leaves and dirt. Leaving muddy paw prints on lab reports is my speciality!
