Every Thursday for more than 20 years, Dr. Greg Biehle has graced the FOX 7 studio to answer viewer questions for his Ask the Pet Vet segments. But after the recent passing of his beloved dog Reggie, Dr. Biehle has decided to step away from his weekly segment.
FOX 7's Tania Ortega has a look back at Dr. Biehle's time on Good Day and the anchors share some of their favorite memories.
Dr. Biehle has come to the FOX 7 studio practically every Thursday for his Ask the Pet Vet segments for the last 21 years.
With his little French bull dog Reggie by his side, they took on a variety of questions and had some very unique on camera moments.
Reggie captured the hearts of countless viewers as well as everyone at FOX 7. But at 11-years-old, Reggie was diagnosed with cancer and after several treatments Reggie passed away. It left all those who loved her with heavy hearts, especially Dr. Biehle.
“She was a rock star. She was a rock star. To me she was one fine little lady,” Dr. Biehle says.
“The happiest of all those years were the last 11 with her sitting by my side, always in Zack's lap. It was so funny, they loved each other so much,” Dr. Biehle adds.
Looking back, it’s hard to deny that Zack was Reggie’s favorite.
Because of the loss of Reggie Dr. Biehle has decided to take a break from his Ask the Pet Vet segments.
“First of all I want to make it clear of just how tremendously proud I am to do what I do and I’ll always be grateful for that,” Dr. Biehle says.
Dr. Biehle says he feels this is the right time to take a break and let someone else take the reins for a while.
After 37 years of helping viewers across the state, Dr. Biehle says helping loyal viewers is all the satisfaction he needs.
“Every day I walk into some store and every day someone walks up to me and says aren't you that pet vet? I just want to thank you so much for doing this. That's all the reward that I need.”
Dr. Biehle says he plans to do some traveling, with Budapest as his first stop.
"I would like to thank you with all of my heart for allowing me to come into your homes on Thursday morning for all these years. And I would also like to publicly thank you for all the support that you have shown me for Reg.”
Dr. Biehle says he’s looking forward to sleeping in on Thursdays and that this not a retirement. He’ll still be available to help with future pet questions.
FOX 7 would like to thank Dr. Biehle and Reggie for all the memories and good times. We will always appreciate the years Dr. Biehle spent helping our viewers with the four-legged members of their families.
