Milliron Monday: The Rocking Chair 1 13 2020

Abbott "Pete" Smith, D.V.M.
June 16, 1938 - February 22, 2010

Welcome to Milliron Monday where every Monday we celebrate the legacy of Pete Smith, D.V.M., and  Milliron: Abbott “Pete” Smith, D.V.M. The Biography (Monday Creek Publishing 2017). A graduate of Colorado State University and a well-known veterinarian in southeast Ohio, Dr. Smith continues to motivate and inspire. 

At the onset of writing Dr. Smith's biography, I wanted to connect with as many of Dr. Smith's family and clients as I could. With the help of the staff at (the former) Milliron Clinic, Jody, and Dr. Smith's family, I was able to create a list of people to interview. In the meantime, I began writing an outline and trying to get on the right track and timeline. I delved deep into the sense of the story, spending time alone and asking for spiritual help. I am not a big believer in mediums/psychics, etc., but I do not take what they say lightly either. Every time I visit one (which is not often), they always have something to say that is relevant to my situation. 

This particular day, my friend asked if I would like to visit a psychic. I thought it would be interesting, and since my friend was going, it might be fun. When we arrived at the psychic's table, she proceeded with the tarot reading and told me things about my life. I have the event recorded on my cell phone. She said she saw my life in a successful and loving "blue" with my guardian angel always beside me. When she asked me to ask her questions, I asked her about Dr. Smith. "Oh, he's here," she said. "He's wondering why you are writing about him. He says he was no one special - just doing his job. He wants you to know that Jody is sitting in her grandmother's rocking chair, reading by the window."

At that point, I had never been in Jody's houseso I wasn't familiar with what Dr. Smith was referring to. After the session, when I arrived home, I called Jody and asked if she had a rocking chair sitting by a window, and if she had been reading that afternoon. "Yes," Jody said. "It's my grandmother's rocking chair. It's a good reading chair. It looks out over our meadow."

Have a great week ahead.

Through captivating, powerful, and emotional anecdotes, we celebrate the life of Dr. Abbott P. Smith. His biography takes the reader from smiles to laughter to empathy and tears. Dr. Smith gave us compelling lessons learned from animals; the role animals play in the human condition, the joy of loving an animal, and the awe of their spirituality. A tender and profound look into the life of a skilled veterinarian.
