We made the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Saturday, August 31. Nice job to all of those involved.
I would like to Saint the White Bear Animal Hospital for their kindness and sincerity.
Last Tuesday, I had to unexpectedly take my beloved Brittany spaniel dog, Barney, to the vet for injuries that were nonreversible. I was in tears about the health of my dog. The kindness and compassion the staff shared with me will never be forgotten. All of them treated me with the utmost respect. They sat with me, they held my hand, they listened to me as I toiled with my decision concerning Barney. In the end, I had to make the difficult decision to let him pass on to a life free of pain.
Barney was treated in the same way in his last hour — with love and kindness, surrounded by bountiful compassion.
A very special thank to Dr. Gwen Zupancich, and to the vet techs, Bridget, Tina and Jenna, who went above and beyond to make my dog comfortable and loved — plus showing me compassion and solace while making one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make.
