  • Indie 7

    This is Indie 7, the Clinic clown!  She can often be seen waiting at the window to greet everyone who stops by.  But don't let that cute face fool you; she steals all the toys!  She came to Dr. M in Aug 2015 at the request of Pooka...and all they can say is 'What was she thinking!'

  • Pooka

    And then, there is Pooka.  Pooka was chosen by Dr. M at the Humane Society in Feb. 2015.  She is often seen hovering around Dr. M's feet at the clinic or barking at Indie to keep her in line. She is happy to just bark at you when you come by for a visit.

    Poo has since passed away but her presence is still felt.
