If you’re active on social media websites like Twitter and Facebook, there’s probably been a few times that you’ve let people know information about yourself – visiting your favorite coffee shop, running an errand or vacationing in the Bahamas.

I especially want to thank the veterinarians and staff at Bluemound Animal Hospital (Brookfield, WI). You cared for Greta through her good times and helped ease her pain at the end.
