Wednesday's Facebook postings were almost exclusively about EHV-1 and EHM ... well on my "wall" anyway. Since 99% of my "friends" are equestrian related in one way or another, that's all I saw. I suppose if I had more of a life, my "wall" wouldn't have been filled exclusively with comments about herpes! And truth be told, the 1% of my friends who aren't related to my equestrian life, completely understand my ... passion sounds so much better than obsession ... but, you know what I mean.
And on to the REAL point of this post. I love my vet. Have I mentioned that before? Dr. Tolley and Dr. Blanton of Bakersfield Vet Hospital were both interviewed by the print and television news media. As soon as I read their names in the Bakersfield Californian (our local newspaper) and saw their faces on my TV, I couldn't help but excitedly squeal to my husband, "There they are! Those are MY vets!" He rolled his eyes and nodded. I think there was also a deep sigh that smacked of exasperation. I am sure he was thinking, so that's where all our money goes! And hopefully this doesn't cost us any more ...
I was so excited to see the people whom I trust implicitly to care for my horses being asked to share their professional knowledge with the rest of the world. I felt so ... vindicated! That's right ... uh-huh ... those are MY people! And then, Dr. Blanton, who returned from vacation JUST as this whole thing exploded, immediately got to work and started updating us on BVH's Facebook page. She opened up a Q & A sorta thing, and practically begged us to pester her with questions.
I ask you, are there any doubts as to why I love my vet?
