THUS SPOKE TO ME OLIVE THE PUPPY





The cycle of life in my veterinary practice is constantly visible to me.

Last month, sadly, I've had a few geriatric and middle age patients, dogs and cats, that due to illness of a severe nature, and a grave prognosis, I had to perform euthanasia for them.

Death always deeply pains me, and in my practice I give a strong battle when the angel of death shows—and alas he does make his presence known.

But life goes on. Today Olive the puppy walked into my exam room, happy: full of life.

She placed her paw in my hand looked at me with her big puppy eyes and introduced herself. She told me with her big trusting puppy eyes: Life begins and ends for all of us, accept it Doc, it’s the cycle of life; it’s the river of life.
