Dog doctor

A few months ago I was examining a dog which was accompanied by a father and son. The kid looked absolutely crushed when he saw me and said to his dad "its not a dog". His dad explained to me that he'd told his son they were visiting "the dog doctor". His son was disappointed that the dog doctor turned out not to be a dog at all - but a run-of-the-mill human being. For that moment, so was I.
