She's partly right. Today's early rising was for a trip to the vet. She hasn't been for a year and a half, so I wanted to do a wellness check and get her a heartworm test. I had a few concerns: her teeth, her eyes, her little seizures, her weight.
She, of course, would have me think that going to the vet is an extreme betrayal of trust.
You can see it in her eyes.
But the vet gave her a clean bill of health and said most of the little things that were concerning me were just age-related and not worrisome. So we were free to move on to the next part of the morning, where Sophie's outlook improved considerably.
She won't need a walk tonight!
hey chopbuster, I use that soy milk maker every single day....we are soy-ified around here....we want a dog but I think its unfair to have a dog in NYC....ReplyDelete
Aw, I wasn't chopbustin! Just thinking of a gadget you do have.ReplyDelete
I think it depends on the dog, really, and how much time/space/energy you can give to it. A lot, preferably.
Gee, too bad Sophie isn't photogenic.ReplyDelete
I am glad Sophie is fine, Kitt! It must be a relief! Take care!ReplyDelete
That girl is the sweetest thing that EVER lived! LOL.ReplyDelete
Sophie looks very relieved that the vet visit is over. I bet you are too :-)ReplyDelete
Aww, she's a beautiful girl. I'm glad she's doing well.ReplyDelete
Her eyes speak volumes. First, "Do we really have to go in there? I feel fine." And then, "This is what I'm talkin' about. C'mon throw that thing... throw it, I say!" Glad she's healthy!ReplyDelete
Cherry Creek state park dog park? Right?ReplyDelete
I know, dg! If only she were, I dunno, a pug or something.ReplyDelete
It is a relief, Blue. I always worry the vet's going to check her and say, "Uh-oh."
Thanks, Dani! I think so, too.
JGH, she perks up the minute we walk out of the exam room. Her relief is palpable.
Betts, she's a very good communicator!
Summer, close! It's Chatfield. The water's better there.
Pictures made my day.ReplyDelete
