"One of the best things about owning a veterinary clinic is that nobody yells at you if you take your dog to work," Eddington writes in her latest blog, "The Life and (Sometimes Strange) Times of a Veterinarian's Wife."

She describes the fun and humor in bringing her dogs to work in "Hello, Rickets."

"Fido might not be welcome inside a bakery, say, but it’s almost mandatory to have a dog sleeping behind the front desk at the vet’s," she writes.

"Our first dog, a doberman named Kelly, did but she also had severe, odiferous and almost constant flatulence causing our office manager, Brenda, to apologize several times a day," she continues. “'That’s not me,' she would blush as clients wrinkled their noses and looked at her, wide-eyed."
