VUMC Pets of the Day: Regis Quillbin and Danicka

Today’s Hedgehog of the Day is Regis Quillbin, submitted by Heather Grimes of Radiology Recovery at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. “He is very grumpy and loves to stick you with his quills. He hates to be picked up. I give him a bath with a toothbrush and he hates that too lol.

Today’s Dog of the Day is Danicka, submitted by Brody Delaney of 9 South, VUH. “Dani is a 7 year old pit bull terrier and was my first hands on rescue when I started working for a nonprofit animal shelter and spay/neuter clinic. I ended up fostering her and then of course made it official she was around a year old at the time. She now is our little babushka. She loves to walk around with baby blankets draped over her head. She has her own sleep mask that she very much loves during day time naps.”

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.

Regis Quillbin and Danicka were featured in the July 11, 2024 edition of MyVUMC.
