Yesterday we celebrated two milestones; Elaine Arthur (Wildlife Clinic Volunteer extraordinaire) 11th anniversary 
and Percy's 11th birthday.Percy

Here, in an older photo, the two share a brief moment as 
Percy rarely chooses Elaine as a perch.

 The photo was the inspiration for the cake.

 Elaine mugs for the camera by the cake with Morgan and Percy.

 Elaine (kiddingly) offers Percy a gummy worm - 
and yes, she knows better.

 A better picture of Elaine and Morgan.

 Time to cut the cake.

 Percy isn't in the best of moods, he's molting and enjoys 
having his head rubbed by Jessica Zorge.

Morgan gets Percy twice; in cake format and on her head.

Gabriel, service dog to Wounded Warrior Jake Murphy, went home yesterday after an extended stay at the 
Foster Hospital for Small Animals.

Gabriel, early on in his stay.

A screen shot of Jake and Gabriel from the CNN Heroes 
story that adorned his quarters.

Jake and wife Lisa pose with Gabriel during a treatment.

Gabriel gets a smooch from "Dad".

Katie Patellos (V'15) was one of many students 
that fell in love with Gabriel.

As Gabriel's health improved, a daily game of catch 
became part of his "treatment".

He loves his tennis balls, the squeakier the better.

Gabriel sits close by Jake's side while he listens to 
the doctors describing after care.

Jake and Gabriel stand with Dialysis Technician Anne Morse along with Residents Dr. Lesli Kibler and Dr. Evence Daure
in front of the Foster Hospital.

Time for "Goodbyes".

"Parting is such sweet sorrow."

Animal Care Attendant Kayla Des Roches comforts Anne.
