Hi Member,

This week the next in our series: So Many other Things: The Reality of Veterinary Practice Part 15 - First Steps, thanks to photojournalist Michael Weinhardt. This one focuses on the journey people take to have a career in the veterinary industry.

Purely by chance, our second guest blog post, thanks to Dr Hubert Hiemstra, is also about the journey taken in your veterinary career - Vet Long And Prosper. Except this one uses an analogy about rockets and space - but it makes perfect sense, trust me!

Also this week I've focused on a couple of great resources to bookmark & share, including the amazingly prolific Dr Alex Avery and Our Pets Health.

And we also welcome the Delta Institute, Social Domination and Medical Plus to our Business Directory (is your business listed in our Business Directory yet??)

## So Many Other Things: The Reality of Veterinary Practice Part 15 - First Steps (Guest Post)

The beginning of a career in veterinary services extends far back before the first day of work after graduation. A few Brudine vets worked as vet nurses before or during study. Some grew up in the country, some in the city. All had a love of or affinity for animals, as did the vet nurses and receptionists.

## Vet Long And Prosper (Guest Post)

Your veterinary career is like launching a rocket... Google tells me that the edge of the universe is expanding outwards at 68 kilometres per second per megaparsec. To clarify: a parsec equals 3.26 million light-years, and a megaparsec equals a million parsecs. Get it? Me neither, but suffice to say it's faster than the speed of light.

# Guy Biking Across the World Picks Up A Stray Kitten (Facebook Video - Dodo)

Dean was biking across the world when he met a stray kitten who wouldn't leave him alone until he decided to take her on his journey. She now has her very own space on the front of his bike and Dean plans his travelling around her needs.

This is a gorgeous 3-minute video on Facebook that shows the difference a stray cat has made to someone's life - click here to watch.

Dean also has an awesome Instagram account that's worth following - 1bike1world
