Meet Kristen Hornosky, her 7-year old daughter Summer, and Thib-A-Deaux, a canine of questionable heritage. One thing stands out about Thib-A-Deaux, though, and that is his exuberant spirit and love of life, which he may have inherited from an apparent, partial beagle lineage. Possible ancestors may also include German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, or other hound progenitors. Thib-A-Deaux is an enjoyable patient to treat, even though remaining calm and controlled does not lie within his behavioral pattern – Blake and Denise certainly earn their pay during his visit! Summer is a fourth generation client of Bay Animal Clinic, with mom Kristen, grandfather Jerry, and great-grandfather Gerald continuing to make visits to Dr. Mahler with their many pets a family tradition.
