VUMC Pets of the Day: Pico and Mochi

Today’s Hedgehog of the Day is Pico, submitted by Daphaney Davis of Finance.

Today’s Dog of the Day is Mochi, submitted by Marian Aviles of the Pediatric Access Center. “He is a miniature schnauzer and is friendly, loyal, extremely smart, and loves to cuddle. He was a gift to me from my husband to help me with my anxiety and depression. He is my best friend and a child to us!”

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.

Pico and Mochi were featured in the June 25, 2024, edition of MyVUMC.
