I scared Mom today. The morning started out with me going to the Vet. Mom discovered a lump along my right side that was non-painful, and firm. Due to my recent incidents with Sibling Rivalry, Mom thought perhaps it was due to trauma, but she wanted to have me looked at. The regular Vet was on vacation, but apparently the Substitute Vet has the same Fixation on Probing that the Regular Vet does. This leaves me worried: Mom's Brother Number Four, has Nieces Number Four, Five, and Six. Niece Five is pursuing a degree in Large Animal Medicine. She has already docked wee little piggy ears and lamby ears and neutered them as well! What goes wrong in the upbringing of these people? Niece Number Four and Niece Number Six, born into that same home, are not fixated on Probing Animals. (If the family visits over the holidays, I plan to be kenneled, to be safe from Niece Number Five, although I am sure I would enjoy Number Four and Six.)
But I digress. I knew I was in for a probing and I fixed my bottom firmly to the floor. It was no used, for I was just picked up and put on a table and probed!
The Substitute Vet said that for the moment she thought my lump was due to my recent trauma; most likely from injections. She told Mom to keep an eye on the lump. Mom was quite relieved!
The really scary event happened later: Mom came home from picking up Little Lad, and Middle Lad. Mom is super fanatical about making sure no dogs or children are in a closed car in the summer. There was a very sad case near here where a woman left her daughter in a car, by accident. One of our neighbors was on the scene and attempted CPR, and was very traumatized. The whole incident was upsetting to the whole community. This drilled into Mom even more about dogs and kids and hot cars. When loading everyone up, Mom usually leaves one door open until she is actually ready to start the engine.
Mom went out to the van to get her glasses and who did she find in the van? Me, Sophie. Mom was most distressed. She has no idea how I sneaked into the car. Thank goodness Mom needed to go get her glasses, and I was not even hot, as the car was in the garage, and it had been only a few minutes since Mom had been home. Still, Mom was all upset, because she always checks the van, and so someone must have opened the van up without Mom knowing, and I got into it.
I think Mom is going to need some relaxation tonight.

Sophie you takes care of yer mama tonite, and DON' SCARES HER LIKE DAT EFUR 'GAIN!!
She shoulda just left you in the van and drove you and got some ice cream. That would help her and you feel better.
Ice cream for medicinal porpoises.
Wow Sophie that is furry scary. We understand about cars down here cause it gets way way hot and if our momma evfur sees a pup in a car she goes nuts and has the store call 911. So glad you are ok but please stay out of the car, I know we like to go on rides but always ask momma first!
Woof Woof, Molly
It's nowhere near Halloween yet, so no scaring your Mom!
