Happy Birthday?

I just got a happy birthday card for Maggie from her usual (non-emergency) vet. Ergh. I was procrastinating giving them the news, because it feels so awkward. But now I wish I had, because I started getting all teary and sad when I got the card in the mail. I was a little happy, too, I must admit, because I was like…wow, she *did* live a long time. I found a calculator that said 14 years is the equivalent of 70-72 years for a human. That makes me think 14 really isn’t that much of an accomplishment, but every vet I ran into seemed to think it was.

So how does one go about informing the vet? A letter might be easier for me, but a phone call would likely be faster and accomplish the same purpose.
