VUMC Pets of the Day: Bruno and Mr. Walter

by February 9, 2024

Today’s Dog of the Day is Bruno, submitted by Lisa Long of Epidemiology. “Bruno is a 5-month-old Australian shepherd. He loves playing with my 7-year-old twins, and chewing on everything! In this photo, he was sitting under a chair where my daughter was painting, and she dropped a bottle of paint, giving him some blue fur.”

Today’s Cat of the Day is Mr. Walter, submitted by Ben A. Small Jr. of the Clinical Research Center. “Likes: aggressive play with the family puppy (Molly Belle); Dislikes: trips to the vet’s office.”

Pets of the Day — what you need to know

The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Pets of the Day are included in regular editions of the MyVUMC newsletter, which is posted twice a week by VUMC News and Communications.

The pets are selected from the hundreds of entries sent earlier this year to the VUMC Voice Pet Photo Contest.

For those who submitted a photo to that contest, watch MyVUMC for Pets of the Day, and in addition, regular collections of pet photos are posted to the VUMC Voice site. You can see them all here:

If you have a pet you would like to nominate for Pet of the Day, the next Pet Photo Contest submission period is coming up later this year, and will be announced in MyVUMC.

Bruno and Mr. Walter were featured in the Feb. 13, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
