I 100% agree.

Your pet should generally enjoy being at the vet (mine loves being scooped up by the techs at mine). For the costs involved, you should be getting nothing less than excellent service every time. Hope you can find a new one soon...

The wife and I went out for supper to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. While we were waiting for menus we reminisced about our years together. We LOL’d about the time she and I took a female friend to a local bar to see a band we knew. It was the disco era and so this place had a raised dance floor with lights in it. We sat at a table pushed up to the edge of the dance floor with three chairs. I took the middle chair with my back to the audience, my wife on my right (her left side showing) and our friend on my left (her right side showing). Part way through the first set three guys come up from behind. One asked my wife for a dance. I was surprised by this but before I could react I felt some guy's breath in my ear as he asked me; “Would you care to dance?” Now you have to understand that I had very long, wavy, red hair flowing down my back and a brightly coloured disco shirt on. I was flanked by two beautiful young women, so it’s understandable that these guys thought they saw three women. However when I turned around he got a look at my equally long red beard. He turned and then all three of them ran away. Our friend was upset because she really wanted to dance.
So, as the wife and are trying not to disrupt others with our laughter over this story I hear our waitress say as she approaches from behind me; “So, what can I get for you ladies?” As I looked up at this beautiful young woman I see her turn several shades of red as she looked at my now short and very grey beard realizing her mistake. The wife and I couldn’t help ourselves. We broke out howling with laughter.
Below are "then" and "now" photos.

Guys... I might be a mustang owner (again) in a few days. Keep off the curbs.

That's a great outlook to have and a great partner to have it with. So many people these days would break out into anger over an honest mistake. Here is to 49!
