VUMC Pets of the Day: Lyla and Lady

Today’s Cat of the Day is Lyla, submitted by Michaella Phillips of VHAN. “Lyla was left on our property by a previous owner of our home. Lyla’s favorite activity was stalking and attacking carpenter bees on our deck.”

Today’s Dog of the Day is Lady, submitted by Annette McCoy Oeser of Clinical Pharmacology [department or unit]. “Lady is a 13 year old beagle mix who loves walks. On my days off, she will bark at me until I take her. We adopted her from the Nashville Humane Society.”

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 later this year, and will be announced in MyVUMC.

Lyla and Lady were featured in the April 16, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
