Miss Trixie lives at PVC and takes her job very seriously. You may have the opportunity to meet her, on occasion, as she becomes more and more comfortable with being in charge. Currently, she offers support to her staff by making sure they are organized and never late for dinner. She has recently started supervising the front desk and you may find her in the window keeping a watchful eye to make sure the pups get their cookies when they come in, she believes cookies should be offered one right after the other. You may have the opportunity to be greeted by her in the lobby or sitting next to her on the bench as she also plays part time security. Trixie helps your pet by keeping all the fluffy beds nice and warm while they are under anesthesia, nothing better than waking up nice and cozy. Trixie is free roaming at all times and during office hours, will spend most of her time adventuring around the office managers desk at the back of the clinic- there's lots of fun things to climb on and knock over.
