VUMC Pets of the Day: Sofie and Grady

Today’s Dog of the Day is Sofie, submitted by Andrew Shinar of Orthopaedic Surgery. “This is Sofie, here at 2 months of age. She was a rescue from under the floorboards in a barn in East Tennessee during a severe frost. She is a mix of Rottweiler, pit bull, beagle, mini-pinscher, Australian shepherd, German shepherd, and Labrador, and is a wonderful dog — and still just as cute.”

Today’s Cat of the Day is Grady, submitted by Rene Jacobs of the Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute. “Grady was a barn cat that turned this dog person’s life upside down into a purrfect mess!”

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.

Sofie and Grady were featured in the April 25, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
