Melvin B. Scorch
A dream… via imagination… this is how I came to exist in the modern world. An old friend sent Dr. Little a get-well card with the inside all crossed out and instead read, “Congratulations on getting into veterinary school!” It hangs on the wall in the lobby of the clinic with a drawing of a sick dragon sitting on someone’s lap.
Before Broken Top Veterinary Clinic, Little thought of that card and how it would be wonderful to have a dragon as a mascot, and Melvin’s footprint was created. A name-the-dragon contest emerged and a client chimed in, “You should name your dragon Melvin after the butte, after all you named your clinic after the mountain!” So, Melvin B. Scorch was christened!
