Christmas is coming! So, emergency rotas, tinsel FBs and chocolate toxicity all to come!

The 12 days of Christmas 
On the 12th day of Christmas my night shift gave to me:

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!

12 dirty kennels
11 kits for cleaning
10 new clients waiting
9 cats a seizuring
8 lactating bitches
7 swans not swimming
6 egg bound tortoises
4 screeching cockatiels
3 French gauge!
2 wood pigeons
And a closed pyo in a Staffie…

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, have a happy one!
