Hey guys, this is the "old" Beckabean.... lol unfortunatly I have forgotten my password, and so i had to create a new account. Anywho here I am. So where to start?
It's been wild ride this year, moved from Florida again, back in Tennessee again *sigh* yet I am not complaining lol. After a full year with Dr. Anne Chauvet at Veterinary Neuro Services, it was time to move on. I am back in general practice, and enjoying it as much as I can..... I miss neurology :(
Now onto the fur babies.... Oliver was the only baby for the longest time..... about 6 months before we got Max. For those of you who don't know (Oliver is a 2yr old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix that I rescued s a puppy. Max is a 6yr old medium Dachshund (he's to big to be mini, and to small to be standard lol) Max came to me while I was still working at Veterinary Neuro Services. One of the Tech assistants had in the past bred her two weenies, they sold 3 of the puppies and kept 2 puppies. I had fallen in love with their bunch and she knew I had been considering another dog. Fortunatly for me and Max, one of the people who had bought a puppy was needing to return him due to family issues. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to have Max and so he joined our family 9 months ago. As of yesterday we expanded our family again. Morgan my oldest daughter (7yrs) has been asking for a dog of her own. up until now she has shown great responsibility by feeding, and cleaning up after her hamster. She tries to help with Max and Oliver but they have very little intrest lol. So I came across a 2yr old Dachshund who was in need of a home. Sonnie is a mini miniature lol weighing in at only 9lbs. He is a sweet little black and tan that the girls adore. He wants to give kisses and is the perfect playmate for Oliver. He does "talk" quite a bit, which is different from the other two boys who don't really bark or whine. Hopefully he will settle in and we won't notice he's even here lol.
Lol naturally. It seems like I went from 0-60 and I can't seem to stop to take a breath. I shall not complain though I am really enjoying all the stuff I am getting to do. I've been bouncing from general vet practice to neuro then back to general. Now I am leaning away from finishing tech school and goining all the way to vet school *cringe* still not sure.
to not get too far off topic lol..... the clinic I'm at now has an exotics vet, which is giving me even more exposure and practice with other animals. Had a bearded dragon come in Saturday with an obstruction. Unfortunatly the owner was not able to come up with funding so we had to send her home with some lactulase and a prayer. Makes this job suck some times. I am soooo glad I have a back-up savings account and care-credit lol...... although if all three boys herniate at once I would have to go back to working for Dr.Chauvet because I only have enough for one .
Go to vet school, Chickie!!! You can do it!! I received a degree in animal science. I wanted to be a vet--but didn't like physics and had way to much fun. I worked as a vet tech for 8 years at an animal emergency clinic. I then decided I did not want to be 40 and lifting big dogs up on the exam table. I went back to school and became a human nurse. I was then lifting 300 pound hip patients!! I had small children, a part time job at the vet hospital and I aced nursing school. I was more mature and took it more seriously.
I believe you can do it. Let your dreams soar! Go for it!

The Big guy is Max-452 named after Max on Dark Angel (lol his breeder named him, his dad's name is 0E17 or Zero for short) the little red is my Oliver. Had him since he was about 9-10 weeks old. and Our newest edition is Sonnie the little black and tan baby. Thank you. They are all wonderful
