To the vet :-(

I had to go to the vet last night for a shot. When the weather gets hot & humid & there are lots of molds in the air, I get itchy skin. I started scratching myself even though I had taken my monthly Comfortis flea pill & Mom puts Frontline on me as well. I got a bath with medicated shampoo, no fleas were found but I continued to itch. The same thing happened to me last yr & I had to get a shot. I really don't mind going to the vet. The girls behind the counter come out & talk to me & give me peanut butter cookies. A lady came in with 3 little dogs; a Bichon, a Schnauzer & a Yorkie. The lady asked Mom if it was ok for them to meet me & Mom said, "sure". We all became friends instantly & Mom let me lay by them while we waited for the vet. A huge big black & tan coon hound came in & when she barked she sounded just like our Louie hound at home. The lady took her 3 little dogs over to meet her but the owner said, "no" because the hound was growling & barking at them. I stayed by my Mom & just watched. Those little dogs were sure glad to come back & sit by me. :-)
It has been really hot & a storm was coming when we got home from the vet. I was in the yard w/Mom when we heard a huge clap of thunder & lightning cracked really loud. The horses in the pasture jumped & started running around. I ran start to my Mom & got under her legs. Wow! That was scary. We better get to the barn fast!
My Weim sister was w/Dad in the barn & shaking terribly from the noise. She is terrified of any kind of storm, even just rain.
The weather is suppose to cool off this weekend so we are going camping with the horses. I can always tell because Mom makes about 100 trips from the house to the camper with me right on her heels. (Don't want her to forget to take me) I like to go camping (except for having to sleep in a crate at night) because I help Mom with the horses, there's always good stuff to eat, go for walks thru the horse camp & look at all the horses & meet other dogs. Mom said we are going to stay 4 days. Cool!
Bark at you all when I get back................Shelby

Glad you braved the vet okay. I know, I don't like going there much myself, but the people are nice:) Have fun camping this weekend!
