Milliron Monday: A Happy Lamentation 6 8 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. 

Last week Jessica (Smith) shared items from the family's archive. One of the treasures is a poem by Abbott P. Smith. Of course, there is more than one Abbott P. Smith. Deciding that Pete (Abbott P. Smith III) did not write the poem (because he usually signed his poems "Pete"), we are left to believe that the poem was written by Pete's father (Abbott P. Smith II) or Pete's great-grandfather (Abbott P. Smith). A profound look into the eyes of friendship... enjoy...


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.
