R.I.P. Sheva Middlebrooks

Sheva was one special girl!!! She was an honorary receptionist for over a decade due to having severe separation anxiety.  Many of our clients loved to ask her if she wanted a cookie.  Sheva would place her front paws onto the countertop and never disappointed anyone by nodding her head “yes” and enjoying her special treat.  One of the receptionists would say, “Sheva, mailman” and would run up to the reception door to get her daily treat from our mail delivery person.  Sheva knew that the treatment area was where all the medical action took place.  Thoughts of one of the doctors placing a thermometer in her rear or giving an injection was so unpleasant that she would turn her head to avoid looking at the area when passing it to go out to potty. However, when she didn’t feel well, she would willingly go up to a doctor to let them know.  She had an uncanny ability to tell time because she knew when her family was driving into the parking lot and waited for them at the reception door.  She has jumped the gate into her granddaddy’s arms when he arrived.  We would watch her choose the correct Hello Kitty leash, leave with her family, and drive in the convertible into the sunset.   We will eternally have a special place in our hearts for Sheva Middlebrooks. Rest in peace sweet girl.  We will love you FOREVER.
