Dr. Chris Cannon D.V.M
Chris Cannon D.V.M. grew up on the South Side of Chicago. She claims to have wanted to be veterinarian as far back as she can remember and her parents always said, �Since she was two.� She did her undergraduate work at Purdue, getting a B.S. in Animal Science and her veterinary training at the University of Illinois in Urbana Illinois. From the U of I she received her B.S. in Veterinary Medicine and then her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1977.
She practiced in Granite City, Illinois in a low volume high cost practice for two years and then the other extreme, high volume low cost at the Humane Society of Missouri in St. Louis for two years before moving to Bremerton. She practiced there for about 8 months before moving to Bellevue and joining a small animal practice in Kirkland. After a bit over a year there she did relief work (like being a substitute teacher, except being a substitute veterinarian) for four years.
In February 1987 Dr. Cannon bought a Bird and Exotic practice in Lynnwood. After five years there, she merged that practice with a practice in Mountlake Terrace and changed its name to A Pet Care Clinic.
She has had cairn terriers, with the exception of 22 days, since before her freshman year in Veterinary College. The current cairn is Sassamat (named after a street in Vancouver) who goes by the name Sassi. As she is not as young as she used to be she opted to get Sassi a playmate and somehow ended up with a silver toy poodle named Bug. He was supposed to be a show dog, but he grew one inch too tall and needed a new home. So, he is now a Cannon, and his mom has NO idea what his registered name is and has to look it up each time she enters him in Agility trials
Both of the dogs enjoy the agility obstacles and running the course seems to be Sassi�s reason for living. Bug is content to come to the clinic each day and convince all the clients (and the Postal Carrier) that he NEVER gets any attention or love at home and HAS to be loved at the office. At the Agility trial Sassi is running head of the little attention grabbing brother. Her first trial she earned her Teacup Beginner Agility Dog (TBAD) title and 2/3 of her Teacup Games 1 (TG1) title. The second trial Bug got 2/3 of his TBAD and Sassi finished her TG1 and earned 2/3 of her Teacup Intermediate Agility Dog (TIAD) title.
Lately, instead of dancing on weekends Dr. Cannon has gotten into volunteering for and with the Driftwood Player in Edmonds. She helped build the set and then helped with costume changes and did LOTS of dishes for Agatha Christie�s A Murder Is Announced. She helped build the set and ran the follow spot for The King and I. She also helped strike both sets. For M*A*S*H she tried out, but not being cast fell back into set building and will be working back stage for that performance as well.
Dr. Cannon also volunteers for the Mountlake Terrace Library and is one of the Friends of the Library as well.
During the summers Dr. Cannon volunteers for the Shoreline Arts Festival and Gala. She also works the NARAL auction in the fall. And has apparently built a reputation for her skill at setting up auctions as last summer a couple other organizations requested her help as well!
In her spare time she vegs out on the couch with the kids (Sassi & Bug) watching recorded dramas�Castle, Hawaii 5-0, CSI NY, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, (lots of �letter� shows). And has just gotten into kickboxing!
