Tales from a really cute Shih Tzu

I went to the doggie doctor.....

Mom took me the the doctor yesterday because I am itching something terrible. As usual this time of year. I had to get two shots and some kind of pill for the itchiness. I also had to have a blood test.

Mom seems to think I have stinky breath, she says it smells like I eat poop!!! The doctor thinks so too, so I have to have my teeth cleaned and I might need to have some teeth pulled. That sounds horrible. So on June 1, I have to go to have that done. The thing is, when I am scared, I get a little snappy. I really don't mean to bite but I have to protect myself. I snapped at the doctor when she tried to pick me up, but everyone at the office knows I am really a very sweet dog so they tend to over look it.

Anyway, I will let you all know how it goes.

I get scared at the vet office also so I usually poop either going into the office or when one of the technicians or vet picks me up. They all know me also so they have taken to bring a towel into the exam room when them need to come get me - BOL, BOL

I have also been know to snap when I'm scared so momma always warns them and tells them it is okay to muzzle me so that all are safe. Momma does not want me to bite anyone so she would rather me endure a few minutes being muzzled then having to report me to the animal control agency as a biting dog.

I hope your vet visit on June 1st goes better than expected and that you don't have to have a tooth pulled. I'll keep my paws crossed.

I don't have a muzzle. My nose is too short. I'm usually OK after I get up on the table. Milo poops every time he gets inside the vets office. Mom could walk him around to 20 minutes outside before she takes him in and he does nothing. He waits until he is inside the office.

Thanks for your good thoughts Puff.
