Rommel Bear Was Loved By All

On Monday, July 13, 2015 around 5:30 a.m., the vet techs that were on shift were waiting for me outside with a stretcher for my German Shepherd, Rommel Bear. He was immediately taken back for assessment, and I was offered a private room with a couch and a blanket for me to rest while I waited. The vet came out and informed me of all the options and was professional and compassionate. I went home later that morning and they, as well as Dr. Richard Jones, kept me updated all throughout the day and throughout the night.

I have been allowed to spend as much time as I wanted and was even allowed to play Rommel his favorite songs (Wagon Wheel and Oo-De-Lally) via earbud. The vet even came over and gave me several blankets to lie on so I would be more comfortable. My daughter came later today and sat with him in the crate again playing his songs. He will be there tonight, and as I pray for a miracle, the real one is the team that has worked on my beloved pet day and night. Without them, Rommel would not have a fighting chance. No matter the outcome, I am so thankful that my Rommel Bear was taken care of and loved by all.

You all, to include the ladies at the front, have truly touched my heart with your compassion for the patients and their human parents. I honestly can’t thank you enough.
