A bit later in the morning, we had a few spare minutes, so we let the apprentices take a look at the inner workings of their dog.
They were pretty interested in both the ultrasound and the x-rays that we took right after.
Hopefully by the time they are teens, they will be ready for summer jobs at any clinic in the area. I figure, since I got hired when I was a kid, and I have helped "raise" a lot of other people's kids in a clinic environment, there will be someone who can train these in what it means to get up every day and do whatever it takes.
Spaghetti for lunch means wearing a few towels so that it doesn't ruin your scrubs!
