Well friends, it happened… I had no idea it was coming. We got up like any other Saturday morning, went on a walk, had breakfast… How was I to suspect that when Mom said I was going for a car ride that it was going to end at….
Yes, it’s true. I had to have my yearly check up. After being greating by the overwhelming warnings of boarding dog baying and barking constantly I was more then reluctant to go prancing in to those people in coats who like to poke and prode me. Not only did I try to make a narrow escape a couple times while in the waiting area as other dogs were coming and going, a very large dog that mom called a great dane came in to get weighed while I was waiting. Now, on any other day, under any other circumstances I am very sure her and I would have gotten along great. But at this moment, awaiting the evil fate that goes on when they bring me in that little room, her 148 lbs just didn’t seem all that fun, AND SHE WAS YOUNGER THEN ME!
Eventually, after seemed like forever, I would have to say at least 30 dog minutes (aka: 5 mintues to my human readers) they called my name and mom walked me into that little room. As all of you know, I don’t really like new people and it takes me a long time to warm up to them. Well, this lady didn’t believe in warming up! A quick pet on the head, and a thermometer up the you-know-where! Talk about abrupt! Mom held my head and kept telling me I was being a good girl, but I had already desided that I would just stand as still as a statue until this whole ordeal was over. Maybe it would make it go faster, or maybe they would forget I was in the room. They took blood and told mom I was heartworm and lime negative, so I guess all those yummy once a month treats are working. Keep em coming!
Then the Vet came in… I know! I hadn’t even starting the real apointment! Every time I have gone to the vet I see a nice lady named Dr. Moynihan.
(that’s her and her dog Bridget, I never met Bridget, but she looks like a nice girl)
I had to get 3 shots and a thing up the nose! Ahhh- chooo! yea, I sneezed all over my nice vet. After that, she told mom that I was FAT!! Well, I guess she just said I could loose a few pounds, but what girl wants to hear that!? Mom fessed up that it was her fault that we hadn’t been exercising enough and that Mom could probably loose a few pounds too! And for Dad to lay off all the extra yummy special treats…
Ahh well, after that, I was done! I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! Mom, hurry up and start that car!
She made up for it though, later last night I got to go to SUNNY’s House! (See HERE to learn about me and Sunny) We got to play from 5:30-12! Boy was I sleepy today!
Well, That about does it for this post… Until next time, keep your ears open for the word Vet, and run and hide when you hear it, I know I will next year!
