Paws to Consider — The circle of life at the vets
Thursday, August 07, 2014 8:32 PM
Drs. Ed Laman and John Jones, DVM



We have a new picture in our waiting room. A Norman Rockwell print, “At the Vets” depicts a young boy holding a Beagle puppy with a make-shift bandage around its head. Surrounding the pair is a colorful bunch of clients and pets only Mr. Rockwell could create.

This picture was the first thing I saw when I entered the office of Dr. E. F. Laman on a cold Saturday morning in December nearly 20 years ago. I was a 24-year-old senior veterinary student who made the trek from Columbus to Delphos to ask him about a job. Edward Franklin Laman was a big man then, a rather imposing figure to this nervous, skinny kid. He proved to be as warm and friendly as they come, though, and made me feel very welcome.
