Clinic Supervisor & Official Greeter

Hi! I’m Merry. Merry Christmas to be exact. On December 26, 2017, I wandered into an open garage seeking food and shelter. Imagine my surprise when I learned that garage belonged to Dr. Debbie Middendorf, the head doctor at Town and Country Animal Clinic. After introducing me to the TCAC staff, I was given a full checkup. I was a little nervous at first, but Maria, Karen, Jae and Jennifer put my mind at ease. Dr. Middendorf was so gentle, I barely noticed getting my shots. I got a clean bill of health and a gold star. WooHoo!! They of course fell in love with me. I mean who wouldn’t, I’m adorable. They offered me the job of clinic supervisor and I accepted. Thank you, I appreciate your heartfelt congratulations. I like treats. And balls. Look forward to meeting you all.
