"All Dogs Go To Kevin"

By Dr. Jessica Vogelsing

New readers are always welcome!

Thursday, May 19th @ 11:30 a.m.

You can't always count on people, but you can always count on your dog. No one knows that better than veterinarian Jessica Vogelsang.

With the help of three dogs, Jessica is buoyed through adolescence, veterinary school, and the early years of motherhood. Taffy, the fearsome Lhasa; Emmett, the devil-may-care Golden; and Kekoa, the neurotic senior Labrador, are always by her side, educating her in empathy and understanding for all the oddballs and misfits who come through the vet clinic doors.

From the clueless canine who inadvertently reveals a boyfriend's wandering ways to the companion who sees through a new mother's smiling facade, Jessica's stories from the clinic and life show how her love for canines lifts her up and grounds her, too.
