 Today’s Dog of the Day is Lyla, submitted by Meredith Bordelon of the Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute. “Lyla is a 10 year old boxer and Australian cattle dog mix who makes dinosaur noises when happy.” 

Today’s Cat of the Day is Phatfat, submitted by Starkisha Coleman of Critical Care.

Pets of the Day — what you need to know

The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Pets of the Day are included in regular editions of the MyVUMC newsletter, which is posted twice a week by VUMC News and Communications.

The pets are selected from the hundreds of entries sent earlier this year to the VUMC Voice Pet Photo Contest.

For those who submitted a photo to that contest, watch MyVUMC for Pets of the Day, and in addition, regular collections of pet photos are posted to the VUMC Voice site. You can see them all here:

If you have a pet you would like to nominate for Pet of the Day, the next Pet Photo Contest submission period is coming up in 2024, and will be announced in MyVUMC.

Lyla and Phatfat were featured in the Jan. 23, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
