The Clinic Pearl
Pearl is from a small puppy farm in Hartland, WI and has grown up in Milwaukee. She lives with an old cat, and tolerates his presence. She loves playing football. Her favorite treats are Fresh Is Best duck hearts and Primal dried nuggets. However, Pearl always manages to sample whatever anyone is eating, even her cat’s food or Karrie’s Cheez-Its. Thus, her plump figure! She enjoys going to work and sitting with her girlfriends during the day in a cushioned, covered bed. She even has handmade blankets from clients who love to keep her warm. She answers peemail and pisstent messages, and will occasionally run labwork. She always knows when it’s quitting time and gets excited to go home with Dr. Meier. Pearl loves her daily routine and all of her friends at Community Veterinary Clinic!
