A little more appreciation than i like to deal with.

We did a c-section on a little chihuahua tonight ... three pups were in the uterus, and it was my job to revive them (pups born by c-section come out under anesthesia). After they were all breathing and cleaned up and awake, i tied off the umbilical cords and took them up to the owners, a pair of women.

They were very happy to see the three pups ... they thought there was only one, and we were all concerned it would be born dead. So one of the women grabs me, hugs me, and kisses me on the cheek.

I really didn't know what to do at that point. so i continued talking about the pups. That rattled my professional composure just a bit.
