I took this photo early on Tuesday morning as Alayne and I were getting the van ready for the trip to Peak Veterinary Referral Center in Burlington. Widget may be blind but she can hear the engine running, and she knows what that means -- it's time to see her doctors!
We always put Widget out for her last potty stop before leaving, and after she does her business she heads to the fence and stares in the direction of the van. She'll stay there until we scoop her up and put her in the vehicle. It's as if she's afraid we'll forget and drive off without her. She actually looks forward to going, and she seems to know when it's "Burlington Tuesday" -- the morning routine is different and starts earlier because of the road trip. So she's ready for the journey and has her bags packed.
Travis is the same way -- he enjoys going to Peak, too. When we let him out of the house, he runs for the van and jumps into his crate in the back. Once at the clinic, he gets so excited when he sees his vet techs he can barely contain himself!

We just won another $1,000 in the previous round, so your daily votes do bring in serious money for our disabled animals!
Please note that I cannot help with technical or voting problems. I also do not have an "inside track" to anyone at the Shelter Challenge, and I don't know any more about the contest than anyone else does. So if you find yourself having issues, please consult their FAQ page here and their Rules page, which is a pop-up you can find linked on this page.
Thanks for your votes!
