There's an old joke in the medical community.This, sadly, is almost an understatement. I worked for a surgical/pharmaceutical company, and we ran training sessions for surgeons. I try not to generalize about groups of people, but across the board I found this to be true - coupled with total disregard for others.
It is good that you have a support Dog!Morning, all!
Had an Old Folks happening this morning. Was distracted with what I was doing and had a trip and fall on the patio. Managed to bruise my thumb pad and my knees which were secondary to the fall are starting to whine. Pooh! So a bit of naproxen with the morning coffee. Probably going to be good and sore tomorrow. Off to find some pain/ache salve in a bit.
One of our dogs is a Therapy Dog that my husband certified for his counseling sessions. She came right to my side and has been very concerned ever since. She's very empathic, albeit a bit of a mischievous Dennis the Menace brat when not in human presence. When there's a tomato in the middle of the living room, there's no question about who countersurfed the red ball from the kitchen. But she's a love and one of those dogs that if you're on the sofa, she'll climb up and lay down next to you just to touch you.
