Annual Checkup!

Today, Daddy tricked me into going to the vet. He first said that we were going for a ride to pick up Mama from school, but he failed to mention that we were going to the vet straight after. While we were in the waiting area, I met a Bichon Frise...he was scared and shaking. I also saw many other dogs that were waiting for their turn. The diet thing has leveled off. The weigh in came in at 21 lbs. I was weighed on this ancient looking scale. The result wasn't too bad, the Dr. said I weighed 22 lbs last year at this time, so Mama was happy. I had to stand on the cold stainless table and get my temperature taken. The violation is embarassing, so I jumped off the table. I was then picked back up and put on the cold table. I then sat and listened attentively as the Vet Tech told Daddy what I needed. It was then determined that I needed my round of booster shots and a set of dewormer preventative that will taste like bananas. I took my shot like a grand champion because my Daddy distracted me with a yummy cookie treat while the Doc gave me the shot. Daddy then gave me a big kiss for being such a well behaved good girl! Lucky for me, I don't have to do this again for another whole year!

Hugs,
CoCo Puff

Boy, humans are great, aren't they? Taking that photo of you getting your temperature taken? I bet if their temperature were taken that way they wouldn't like a photo of it!

That Vet Tech looked a little bit too happy to be sticking that thermometer up your butt, Coco! Shame, shame!
We're glad you came away with a clean bill of health for another year!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Bruschi said...

Congrats on your clean bill of health CoCo! How come our human parents do such humilitating things to us.....like take pictures while thermometers are up our butts? I thought I had it rough being dressed up in costumes! BOL!! I guess that's why they call it unconditional love! :)

Hugs and Licks, Bruschi

PS- Now that your diet leveled off, are you allowed to eat fun treats again?

Aniemother said...

You looked pretty grumpy after your money-maker got violated. But it sounds like your day at the vet's wasn't too bad after all!

Don't you just hate going to the vet? They do such humiliations on us ... but we have to endure if we want to be healthy. Glad you are ok and survived all the poking around.
