Favorite Quote
  • Inscription on the Monument of a Newfoundland Dog
    by Lord Byron

    Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who
    possessed Beauty without Vanity,
    Strength without Insolence,
    Courage without Ferocity,
    and all the Virtues of Man,
    without his Vices.
    This Praise, which would be unmeaning
    Flattery if inscribed over human
    ashes is but a just tribute to the Memory
    of Boatswain, a Dog.

What I like Most About VIN
  • Availability and willingness of so many enthusiastic and experienced veterinarians to help and share opinions.
