We are now told that when dealing with the public or going out in public places; we have to wear a mask and here are some things that I experienced while doing vet work yesterday dealing with the public and any emergency cases that came to the surgery:

They frighten dogs! When we greet the dogs at the door to collect them from the owner, they cannot read our facial expression and one muzzled and very frightened poor elderly Boxer barked at me until I pulled the mask down.

Gorgeous Mumble just didn’t mind at all that I had a mask on thankfully!
