Thank you for taking care of me last year when I broke my leg. It’s been a year now! Wow, time flies! You demonstrated heroic measures to help my bones heal. I’m not telling how I broke it. I’m keeping that secret! I can hop and run around. My family can’t believe I’m really 15! I just wanted you to know I’m thinking waggy thoughts about you. Wags and kisses!”
“Dr. Cowan and staff,
We appreciate your attentiveness and professionalism in taking care of our dog, Jasmine. You all did a great job!!!”
