Humans. Can't take them anywhere. Imagine arriving at the doctor's office with your camera and then asking the doctor to pose for a picture while she examines you. Bet you she'll think you've lost the plot.
Well that's exactly what my human did to me today. Lucky for me my dr Kerry is a gem of a vet and she played along with a great sense of humour and an even bigger smile!
After my big scare six months ago, my humans are treating me like a newborn baby and today they were worried about a little rash I have on my chest. All's well though and I have to admit, I hardly felt the injection she gave me and the massage I got under my belly when they put the ointment on, was a nice bonus.
Having the hair plucked from my ears, well that's another story. I really wish they would have consulted me about that one before the time. Anyway, I do love my vet and I love how she fusses over me - I guess a sting or two is not the end of the world.
Here we are - now I know how Paris Hilton's dog feels! Dr Kerry is a natural but I still prefer to hide behind my locks...
I promised my human a guest spot today, so here goes!
My dearest little Abbey
I know how much you hate going to the vet. When we pull up in their driveway you start grunting and I feel how you tense up. Trust me, I get it. Why would you feel happy about going to a place that reminds you of pain and fear?
I know you think I'm paranoid to take you everytime you have a little ache or rash, but I would rather be safe and know that you are ok. You have to know that even though you've never uttered a word in your life and weigh less than two kilograms, you have managed to crawl right into our hearts and we cannot bear the thought of losing you.
I never want to relive those few days when we thought you were not going to come home, so please bear with your silly, paranoid humans!
Your blog is looking quite spiffy and I hope you'll allow me to say my say every now and then as well - I know you'll probably moderate all my comments, but that's ok. At this stage you can get away with pretty much anything you feel like doing.
You must admit though - pretty cool human I chose to be your vet!
