Pet Vaccination Reminder

We are advised that, Tess, our aging hound, is due some vaccinations before the 19th January.

I find it extraordinary that we should get vaccination reminders for the dog and yet there are ABSOLUTELY no reminders about human vaccinations.

It is the parents responsibility to have their children vaccinated against all diseases, which we should all be aware off… and that they should be vaccinated against these diseases within the correct time frames.

There are no helpful reminders, like the one Tess has just received from our Doctor.

So, who says the French don’t care for their dogs?

The worrying thought is …do the French care more for their dogs than their children?
