We love hearing from patients after they are discharged from treatment and are always delighted to receive a message or even a photo (especially a back-in-action shot!). We like to keep them all in our ‘Hall of Fame’ at the Centre to help make others aware of the assistance that can be given to ill or injured pets in regaining their mobility, independence and athletic performance, and to inspire us all. We’ve had notes, cards and emails in lots of different forms and we value them all, but last week was a first- waiting for us was a beautiful photograph of recently signed-off Bracken the labrador complete with a poem written by her owners! We love it so much that we’d like to share it with you, so here it is…..
How can you not fully adore
The happy aspect of a Labrador?
The otter tail, the silly grin
The open heart to take you in.
Sweet true love from earnest eyes,
Emotional truth, a friend so wise.
At play, at work, at rest, at ease-
The Labrador was born to please.
