    As per request from a good Flickr friend... I give you cute animals.

    I don't know about you, but I need some cute animals myself tonight. Today was a busy work day, but the worst part? Multiple euthanasias, and then coming home to find my student loan interest rate went up due to a late payment that I didn't even know was late. I'm hoping to remedy this, of course, but it still has me on edge. Let me tell you something, kids: don't be a vet if you want to live anything more than an average lifestyle. Or if you you're easily jaded (luckily, I'm not). These days, you'll be in debt until you're 56 (if you graduate on time, that is)... and that's if you can find a job. For further discouragement, see one of my favorite blogs.

      You'll have to popularize your business, like this dentist guy in Halifax does, by constant television advertising of implants, veneers and makeovers...then they will come with fists full of money for fifi and bozo...for botox and tooth bleaching, pedicures and everything else...Then, your student loan will go down, down, down (as will your dignity)... Just be steady and consistent and before you know it, you'll be 56! I have a sore hip...can you fix that (I won't tell).

      These two look cute and curious. Chin up, Danielle; you chose this path for a reason. No regrets. :-)

      Thank you so much ...my sould needed the "cute" today. My DREAM was to be a vet...until I lost my first pet and knew that I couldn't deal with the "death" part of the job. That still holds true but it is one of my life's biggest regrets.

      Oh, Danielle, what a completely rotten day. Here's hoping today is better, and Fergus told me he sends you some snuggles!

      (and those two are the sweetest!)

      these are so cute!!! and i so understand what you say! i'm not even close to where you are right now, but graduated in psychology 10 years ago, worked in that field for until one year ago, officially unemployed now and trying my very best to run a portrait photography business because that's what i like to do! so, let's just think that we're gonna make it!!! ;)

      I don't know sheep. You know, I've never spent time with them or know their personality. I wonder if it matches what you've captured here. ??? A close second on the cuteness scale to my eyes (dogs first of course...)! I hope you've rebounded Danielle and are on to better thoughts. For what it's worth, I, too, feel the student loan pain.

      i'm sorry you've been so overwhelmed lately, friend. i do hope it gets better, and soon.

      p.s. you're the best. these are some of the cutest, cuddliest, most adorable wittle sheep baybays i've ever laid eyes on :) i'm smiling pretty big right now. (forgive the baby talk, sometimes it just comes out)
      lambs are my favorite. holding them is fun...they usually try to eat my hair, or suck my finger, even though they get no milk out of it haha...they're just precious. (i know people who have a farm with sheep.)

      Feel free to post as many cute animals as you'd like. :D CUUUUUUTE.

      :( What animals did you have to euthanize? That's why I can't volunteer at my local animal shelter..I'll be broke & torn apart each time one has to be euthanized :(

      these little guys are so adorable :) sorry to hear you had such a crummy day...i can't imagine the feeling of having to put down animals, even the really sick ones. these sweet faces are the perfect remedy!

      Dang, what a depressing day. At least sheep have cheerful faces.
