We learnt alot about Oakham.

We were really Lucky to have a visit this morning from Eve, Rebecca and spaniel Teddy this morning.

We learnt lots about the job of a vet including looking at bones, ticks, fleas and bandages.  We also dressed up as surgeons bandaged others and used a stethescope to listen to Teddy's heartbeat. It was a fantastic morning and we are very grateful to our visitors.
