The Vet

04.08.11 | 2 Comments

On the way home from school today, Zoe and I were talking about many things, among which is Chief’s upcoming check-up at the vet. I said, “Chief is going to visit his doctor on Tuesday – do you want to come with me?” She said she did and went on to talk all about how important it is to go to the doctor and stay healthy. She asked who his doctor is, and I gave his name and said that he was a veterinarian who takes care of all kinds of animals.

She took that in and after a break in the conversation, she asked, “Is Chief’s doctor a person, or a dog?”


“He’s a person.”
“Oh. Well I thought he might be a dog.”
