flashback friday: {animal adventures}

to say i loved my time at washington state university would be an understatement.  my time at wsu changed my life forever.  i discovered who i was there.  i became independent.  i grew up. 

while there, i majored in wildlife ecology.  best. major. ever.  i always wanted to do something with animals, conservation, the planet, global warming, climate change, save the world, yadda yadda yadda.  i had so many amazing opportunities while going to school at wazzu & will never forget them.

{these pics come at ya circa 2004 - 2006. ish.}

{1} working at the vet school - inserting an iv catheter into a dog {2} monitoring anesthesia on same dog {3}  holding a rare & threatened pygmy rabbit {4} playing with a bear cub - yes he takes a paci {5} field trip to study big horned sheep - sheep in background. see me? {6} holding "kessie" - an american kestrel

i love that i'm able to continue to work part-time as an ecologist & use my hard earned degree.  

oh, & i love that the cougs are totally gonna beat the huskies in the apple cup tomorrow.  GO COUGS!
