I don't know about the rest of you, but I actually pause when someone asks me about my profession. Each and every time I'll wage a cerebral war with myself on the pros/cons of telling this complete stranger about what I do, because 75% of the time the next words will be, "So I have this dog...".

definition of the day

If you were to look up "high-maintenance" in a Veterinary Medical dictionary, you'd see a picture of the client that has called me 8 times today about their healthy puppy. I don't mind answering questions and all, and the puppy is pretty damn cute. But seriously, spend a few minutes/hours/days/weeks gathering all of your questions together and only then call me. Or simply get a different hobby, because calling me this many times in one day is not working for me.

Edit: Sept. 3rd at 9:00am and I've already had another phone call. Don't forget that this puppy is healthy. This last phone call was to ask how I thought the puppy liked the treat I offered during the exam. Seriously? (grumble grumble)
