On Sunday, October 9, 2011 I attended a presentation by Dr. Greg Ogilvie at the Nebraska Humane Society. Dr. Ogilvie is a veterinary cancer specialist and an internal medicine specialist. He is world renowned for his research, clinical work and writing. I have wanted to meet him for years.
Do you know what impressed me the very most about Dr. Ogilvie? Before the day started, another of my favorite veterinary specialists, Dr. Tonya McIlnay, Omaha’s veterinary ophthalmologist, brought her three-year-old daughter into the room to meet Dr. Ogilvie. He was going around the entire room shaking the hands of every single person there, which is what impressed me the second most.
What impressed me the very most is that he stopped talking with the professionals and knelt down to meet the very small person and compliment her on her sparkly, flashing shoes. They discussed the merits of having shoes that sparkled and flashed in three different colors.
I remember thinking, this guy is as neat as I have heard he is.
