My Dog

I didn’t intend to keep him…at least that’s what I told myself. Little did I know that I needed a stocky little fluff ball in my life.

I was finishing up a field clinic and one of my patients, a wounded eight-week-old pup, had nowhere to go. No one had claimed ownership and the team couldn’t in good conscience just turn him back out on the street. So, keeping with the clinic’s tradition of naming animals after the location they were found, the newly christened Zuni ended up packed into a cardboard cat carrier and on his way halfway across the country.

Zuni never met a person, dog, or pond he didn’t like…and no amount of snake aversion training could convince him that danger noodles were not his friends. He was always up for a run…or a nap…and appreciated both equally. Stubborn to a fault, he lived his life preferring to ask forgiveness rather than permission.

A constant loyal companion and protector of the farm, sadly his life was cut short due to complications from a brain tumor.
