Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day two hundred and forty-five of that project.

This quilt block shows a yellow square building with a trapezoid roof. The roof and the door are a dark green-blue. The door is in the center of the building with two white square windows on either side. The white windows are outlined with blue pen. The big draw to the block though is the belt-buckle like sign above the door. It's a huge blue bordered fancy sign with stylized yellow lettering that reads, "Granby Veterinary Clinic".

Granby Veterinary Clinic is where I have taken all my dogs, sheep, hogs, cats, calves, and guinea pigs.

Dr. Sue is the presiding vet now but for many years Dr. Larry Peterson was there to take care of whatever animal problem that I had. He did everything.

He mercifully and sympathetically ended the lives of several beloved 4 legged friends. He also came to the farm to help with a variety of oddball things my livestock got into.

He put a plate in my first border collie’s leg when she was overzealous and got kicked by a cow.

He even helped me back up a stock trailer out front of the clinic so I could take a ram home.

He and his wife, Susie, are good friends of mine and I’m always happy to see them in town.
