Cone of Shame

The next batch of images is already underway! The clip art-ing has begun again in earnest during my newly-regained free time. In celebration of finally earning my Veterinary Technician credential, this set will be veterinary/medical themed.  I'm already having a blast!  Enjoy this first taste: a pup with a grin, despite his cone of shame.

I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was a kid, but my goals changed as I got older. I spent a few years studying to be a teacher, major-hopping from Russian to Math Education to Family and Consumer Science Education. It took prompting from my husband to remind me where my true passion lay. He could see my pursuits in education weren't making me happy, and asked me one day, "What are you doing? You love animals!" He was exactly right! I took a year off school, then applied for a Veterinary Technology program. As soon as I began my classes, it was obvious I had found my calling. I love more than simply working with animals; the science aspect of the field absolutely fascinates me. I desperately miss school, and look forward to every scrap of new knowledge I can gain from journals and continuing education.

I hope a little of my passion for the field shows through in my next batch of clip art!
