Winston & Minnie
Winston and Minnie are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels who have become our office mascots. We acquired Winston (male) from a local breeder in November 2010. He will be two years old in July. Shortly after getting Winston, we decided that he needed a playmate and acquired Minnie (female) from a differ- ent local breeder. Minnie turned one on March 1st of this year. Their sweet, loving disposition helps to calm the nerves and fears of patients who visit our office with any kind of apprehension about endodontic therapy. They have had many offers to leave us and go home with other people, but so far they choose to stick around. Next time you visit, feel free to say hello to Winston and Minnie.
