Out of the blue, I found myself at the vet clinic again.
Last night, in the dark, Mom brushed me. I don't like being brushed but she brushed a whole bunch of fur off of me.
Then, Mom woke up real early and we went for a super early and chilly walk. It goes below freezing at night now. She brushed me some more saying something about making me presentable. And, I didn't get my breakfast!
Then, I was at the vet clinic.
This whole series of events was in preparation for our prairie road trip! We are really going this time. Mom wanted the vet to give me pills that will make my trip more comfortable. The vet wanted to give me a checkup before she would do that.
I lost a lot of weight since my last visit. Over ten pounds lighter. The vet wanted blood work done before putting me on medication for pain and inflammation. Mom asked to have that done years ago but they didn't think it was necessary. Today, they decided they needed $150 so today they wanted my blood. First time ever that I had that done. Mom held me while two nervous techs poked me. I was a SUPER good dog and barely even felt the needle. Mom was extremely proud of me. When the techs left, she overheard them say to others outside the door that I was a really good dog. I guess the "others" expected them to come out of there with bite marks on their hands.
The pills I got taste like candy! So I will have no problem eating those. Mom will get a call next week letting us know if they found anything wrong with my blood. They don't want me to have those pills long term if I have some other problems like kidney, etc. Also, if the pills don't help me feel better, once they know that I don't have organ problems, we can try other pills too.
I got 2 walks today and it was an easy vet visit. Plus, since I lost so much weight, I'm gonna get fed extra rations.
It is such a beautiful fall day. Just over a week from now we will be driving across the western part of our great country. We hope the weather will be half as nice as it is now. We will be off to visit our nephew who just had that horrible accident. He is doing extremely well now.
Of course you were a good boy! Keeping you in our prayers that your blood work is OK. Eat those extra rations and have the best time ever on your trip Lobo.
Have a wonderful time on your road trip and keeping my paws crossed that the blood work will be fine! Hugs!
Wowf, extra rations AND a road trip! You must have been a FURRY good boy!!!
I live about as far West as you can get, and our weather is bootiful right now! Just sayin'! BOL!!!
Eat...enjoy the trip... and we know you are THE Best Sweet Boy !!
Be proud of you.... and of that wonderful nephew of yours !
Please know we hold you all in our hearts.
Shucks ... Thanks everyone!
