Tuxedo Stan’s World Tour – University of California

My friend Kathie Dreher recently took Minion “Aggie” to a very important event at the University of California Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital. She sent me a whole bunch of pictures of Aggie’s adventure.

I will let Kathie fill you in on the details below.

(Click on any of the thumbnails to see a full-sized image.)

Minion ‘Aggie’ was a social butterfly at the Heritage Society Luncheon at UCD VMTH yesterday, having her photo taken everywhere and with the best and brightest in veterinary medicine! Minion ‘Aggie’ is at the Reception podium ready to address the crowd of between 160-170 people.

The Development office had a surprise for me and put Stan’s picture up on the huge screen during lunch. This was shown to all the attendees ( @160-170 people) until the talks started!

  1. That is incredible!
    Now the bar has been set sky high at least 😛
    (Okay, I’m just a teensy bit jealous!)


  2. I loved this blog! It is great to see the mission of Stan (and his minion) being embraced by these amazing professionals.

    Kathie Dreher – I love your spirit, thanks for sharing all of these pictures. I was touched by your purchase of Stan’s brick and by your plaque/tribute to Angus Eliot.

    There is no doubt that Stan and his humans have touched many people, and continue to do so. Keep up the amazing work.
