Our Pet Bios
Dr. Harris has two dogs and two cats. Both dogs were “rescue” pups that needed homes. Cheyenne is a Doberman-Rottweiler-Lab Mix, and Iris is a white Mini Pit Bull. Her home cat’s name is Sticky, because she scratches people with her claws. Her hospital cat is Gabriel; he enjoys the company of staff, clients and patients at Arlington Animal Hospital.
Dr. Grissom has a beautiful black and white kitty named Daisy who is sweet but also
knows how to rule the household.
Jenni and her two children have two boxers that are an integral part of their family. Sadie and Wrigley both love attention. Sadie is a sweet girl who would love to sit in your lap and Wrigley is a crazy boy that has the longest tongue she's ever seen!
Lori has a beautiful Border Collie named Kizzie that she adopted from All Border Collie Rescue. Lori is a firm believer in adopting from shelters and rescue organizations. And she makes sure her pets are all micro-chipped, in case they ever get lost.
Vana has two Pugs, Buck and Pearl. Buck doesn't see well so Pearl is his seeing-eye dog. She also has a crazy cat named Stewie, who is king of the house and a new cat Baby Kitty. Her bird, Aspen is an Umbrella Cockatoo who talks, dances and taunts Vana's husband. Recently Vana added a red-rooted tortise named Peggy to her family.
Tara has a two-year-old German Shepherd named Diesel and a new kitten named Brodix. Diesel loves to chase his tail and run laps up and down the stairs. He's also scared of his own reflection in the mirror. She keeps them both on monthly heartworm preventive and current on vaccinations so that they will be around for many years.
Elizabeth has 2 dogs, Fynn and Osita, who poke their faces out of the blinds to greet guests. She also has three rats that know how to "spin" on command.
