Boots
Mr Huff from Manheim

I want to extend my thanks to the entire staff of VCA Smoketown starting with the girls out front to the doctor's and their assistants for the kind & considerate care of my wonderful little companion "Boots". I want to thank Dr Jaeger for the successful surgery of a dreaded disease (Cancer), that enabled me to have a couple more months with "Boots".
I also want to thank Dr Battah for his role in attempting to find a solution to make life more comfortable for "Boots".
Then there was Dr Shellenberger, that offered his services by phone and in person if needed and for his concern for my companion "Boots" I thank him.
On the final day Dr Herr took time from her busy schedule to confirm the horrible decision I had to make which gave my most wonderful companion eternal peace.
The memories of "Boots" will always be with me and my love for her will never fade. For everyone at VCA Smoketown I say once again, Thank you, Thank you.
