  1. Phew! I’m still feeling your emotion
    Your pleas reaching out to others
    The integrity in your voice appealing
    Full of empathy for all suffering
    Puppy Doc your a L A D Y
    i know you’ll not give up on others
    And to maintain your goal in life
    Don’t ever give up on yourself

    I know you being very clever
    Will have quite easily deduced
    That I have got some batteries
    My hearing aid now in use
    Your dulcet tones your poem
    Have indeed invoked this reply
    Not my hearing now at fault
    It is my eyes you caused to cry
    I’ll not wipe my tears I’ll catch them
    Keep them as a memory of a Doctor
    Who pleads for health and happiness
    And made my eyes shed tears
    Of sadness and overflowing joy.

    Thank you Puppy Doc,

  2. Powerful to read – even more powerful to see and hear. My favorite of the videos is the last, reminding us all that those who care are people who desperately need to be cared ABOUT to assist them as they struggle to push through exhaustion on the edges of burnout to continue to care for and about their patients – about US.
