Most employees call in to work when sick, or at least get their spouse/roommate/guy delivering their pizza to do so. Ophelia the Dairy Cow’s cellphone must have been dead, because she neglected to phone ahead! After signaling for assistance by the unorthodox approach of laying down in the farthest reaches of the dairy pasture and refusing to get up, she took being needy to a whole new level, requiring the TAU staff and some press ganged vets to construct her her own sled to ride in style up to the hospital pen. Dashing through the pasture in a one tractor open drag, she did eventually make it back to the barn. With the TAU staff now waiting on her hand and hoof this Animal of the Week is already feeling better!
