For many of us, it would be a dream job: caring for animals all day long.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Saturday Survey: Animal Planet Vet Shows

rp_Saturday-Survey-Graphic-350x2331-350x233-350x233-350x2331-350x233.jpgI am in love with the vet shows on Animal Planet. My typical Saturday involves watching the reruns all day, then catching the original episodes at night.
