Friday should be such a good day and I was hoping it would be but then mom said that awful word, V-E-T! This sure set me into a panic as that place scares me to death! They are such nice people, they give me unlimited treats, they pet me and even greet me by name when I arrive but they do weird things to dogs there if you ask me. Katie is terrified too. We have to go in once a year for a heartworm test so we can get a new prescription and yes, we both passed, no problem!
We were almost late for our appointment as
Katie refused to get out of bed and get into the car. I think she knew where we were headed even though mom tried to be so cheery. Mom is not good at lying to us! Finally we were on the road in our usual positions – I am always looking out the back window seeing where we have been and Katie hangs her head over the back seat wondering how much longer until we get where we are going. She looked especially sad on the way to the vet I must say! Mom took the photo at a red light, not while driving in case anyone was worried!
We hop out of the car and walk into the vet office just fine but once we are in we start shaking and keep trying to pull mom back over to the door so we can leave but she always insists on staying which I just don’t understand. We have to get on the scale every time we are there too. Now we are in shape, so it is not a big deal but it is still rather embarrassing because the scale is in the waiting room so everyone can see and you know us girls don’t like to broadcast our weight no matter what it is! This time Katie and I decided to just get on together and refuse to be on the scale
alone. Mom kept laughing so hard that she could not separate us so finally someone came over and helped her so we each got weighed separately. Then the unthinkable happened! The vet tech took us in the back without mom…never a good thing when we don’t have mom with us but we survived getting blood taken and got some treats. We got back in the car and mom finished up paying. I can’t believe they charge to torture us dogs and mom goes along with it!
Once we were back on the road mom said we
were going to the dog park as a reward for being so good, yay!!! The weather was warm but not real melty yet, so it was ok to still go to the park. Mom doesn’t let us go in the spring when it is all wet and muddy which is actually my favorite time. I really wanted to just go home but Katie met some friends right away and was having a ton of fun. I preferred to just hang around with mom until we got into the woods and there were some critter smells and other interesting stuff. Katie kept finding friends and playing chase and was also out front leading us along behind her. It is so nice
to see her having so much fun. I found some great stuff to roll in and mom enjoyed yelling at me about it but I did not care, I did it anyway. We walked around for about half an hour and then it was time to go home. Katie was getting slow and mom did not want to wear her out too much. Katie was way back, so mom took me to the car and got me strapped in and then went back for Katie. Wouldn’t you know, Katie did not want to go home! She would not come and would not let mom catch her! She has done this since she was a puppy but now that she is older it is rare. Although mom was frustrated with her, she was happy to see that Katie did not really want to leave and still has that bad dog thing in her old lady dog self!
I am also posting the poop fairy sign which we thought was quite amusing!
