Forgot to mention--the regular South Bay staff has Remington doing a raft o' tricks for his goodies every time he comes in now for blood tests, check-ups, or whatever. They all have a grand time together. There is some overlap between South Bay & the Emergency clinic, since they share office space & turn over cases to each other morning & evening.
When I dragged into the Emergency clinic late on christmas eve, exhausted and worried, the young lady at the desk (whom I didn't immediately recognize) took Remington into the back. Just after they stepped through the door, going out of my sight, before the door closed, there came a delighted chorus of "Remington!" It's nice to know I've got a dog that the staff knows and likes and enjoys.
