Santa came to Bird TLC

Pet Stop, one of our favorite veterinarian clinics, is upgrading it's surgery room. Bird TLC is the lucky recipient of their older equipment that's being replaced. The equipment is in excellent condition and definitely comes at the right price.

The anesthesia machine came to us last week and got put to work on Christmas Day with our impaled Eagle. The exam table came on Tuesday and has yet to be set up and or used. We have some rearranging to do.

Thanks to Pet Stop, there's so much more we can do at the Bird TLC clinic, saving time, money and hopefully more birds.

The tall fellow is Cindy's son Brian. He was home on leave from the Air Force for Christmas. Needless to say, it wasn't boring for him. You'll also see him in a future story about a Snowy Owl that's at the clinic now (no, not Ghost). He's back at Minot AFB, SD and hopefully he stays out of harms way. Come back soon Brian so Mom can put you to work.

Dave's not kidding about putting my son to work. I'd taken a few days 'off work' to spend time with him, and I think we ended up at the clinic every day! He grew up helping with the raptors we took care of at home when Bird TLC was just starting out, so he's an old hand at it.

One minor correction though, he's at Malmstrom AFB in Montana, just so his buddies know where to find him! :)

It was sure great to have him home for the Holidays, even if we did have to work!

Mom - thanks for the correction.

Cero - I bet someone made Santa's naughty list. :)
