    Ever since I could talk and walk, animals have been my thing. Up until my late teens I planned to be a veterinarian. I got side tracked along the way, although I've always done things like pet sitting and a lot of my jobs had some focus on animals.

    Wednesday morning I will begin working at a pet hospital. I will be working at the front desk. No, this is not just a receptionist job (my best friend said that and I'm a little stung). I will be getting case histories, getting weights, giving prescriptions and telling how to take them, etc.

    If I decide I want to do go more until animal care, they will pay for me schooling. They also give me discount on vet care for my critters and discounts on some products. I

    am wicked excited... and a bit scared. I'm scared for all the obvious reasons. I'm also scared because of the responsibility. They recently had a dog die because they screwed up. The idea that I could make a mistake that would cost an animal it's life is terrifying.

    Well, let's not focus on terrifying parts -- you seem like such a careful person!

    This is amazing!! I'm so happy to hear this! I've never seen a non-important person behind the front desk at the vet. I call them for advice when the doctor is busy! They always know what's up. Definitely not just a receptionist or anything like that.

    Congratulations!!!

    I see the fear of the responsibility as a good thing. It means you will practice due diligence for each and every critter you interact with.

    I think you'll do good by them all. Congrats on the new job! :)
