May 2016 Pet of the Month – “RITA” Falcone
May 2016 Pet of the Month – “RITA” FalconeDate: May 1, 2016
Calusa Veterinary Center would like to introduce our May 2016 “Pet of the Month”.
She is “RITA” Falcone.
Named after Rita Hayworth because of her gorgeous auburn coat, Rita and I found each other 13 years ago and it was love at first sight. I was just coming off a divorce when her breeder decided not to show her after all, and let her go to a pet home. KISMET! We have been attached at the hip ever since. She is the sweetest, most loving creature; she has never met a person she didn’t have a smile and a wagging tail for, and will lick anyone who stands still long enough. Ironically, she is also an amazing watch dog. Father Time can be cruel, however, and Rita is having her share of “senior” problems. She is at Calusa every week for physical therapy (which is why virtually everyone on staff knows her!), and has been lovingly and expertly cared for by two of the best Vets (and their fabulous staff) I have ever known – Dr. Turkell and Dr. Krawitz. Like her Mom, Rita rolls with whatever life throws at her. God willing, she will be a fixture at Calusa for many years to come!
