I've been thinking about adopting a dog since I moved into an apartment that allowed them, but the first year of vet school is never a good time to acquire animals. I waited and waited, but as soon as I got back from my internship over the summer, my mom came with me to a local shelter. We weren't expecting to find a dog that day, especially since I needed something that would work in an apartment, with short hair, and good with cats and dogs. We saw all the dogs and ended spending a lot of time with a dog named Daisy. She seemed perfect. The animal control officer was even willing to let me do a "trial" run to make sure she was a good fit. They dropped her off at the vet school yesterday, since a load of dogs were coming in for spay neuter. She's been settling in, but acting like she's been here forever. She really has been amazing. I'm bringing her to be tested for heartworm and if that comes back clear, she will most likely have a forever home here. Introducing the newly named Sienna!
