VUMC Pets of the Day: Murphy and Ernest

Today’s Dog of the Day is Murphy, submitted by Schiara Gonzalez Parker of VUH. “He is sweet and loving, will lick you to death! He loves going on car rides, eating ice cream, and chasing squirrels.”

Today’s Cat of the Day is Ernest, submitted by Maria Hartzell of CHOC Southern Clinics. “Ernest loves to sit by the window and watch birds, cars, and squirrels!”

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.

Murphy and Ernest were featured in the May 9, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
