  1. Its funny, just the other day me and my friends at work were talking about how this was the the only show on television about social workers :)

  2. Do not laugh at this but I think I found my true calling… Veterinary Social Work. It addresses pet loss, animal-assisted therapy, companion animals and well-being, importance of pets for the elderly, link between interpersonal violence and animal abuse, animal hoarding, etc. I think I could really try this out!!! Opinions?!

  3. How else can your day go when you get to work late, and the supervisor says “the FBI has been here looking for you?”
