Ethyl at hospital

Sadly, this is the last shot of Ethyl (the cute one sticking her head out of my coat) before her last treatment for kidney failure. I had Jenny take this shot mostly to show you what is behind Ethyl and myself. We are in the vet’s office which is actually a house that has been converted into a veterinary hospital. We are in the waiting room where there is a wood burning stove keeping the room toasty warm. Shortly before this was taken, Dr. Moody himself came out to adjust it and make sure it didn’t get too hot. You’d be hard pressed to find a wood burning stove or a fireplace back in the burbs of Chicago that is anything more than decoration. Here, they’re not just common place, for many of our friends, this is their homes main source of heat.
