It's a Chocolate Life

It was Winkie's appointment!

Daddy had the day off today. He told me we were gonna have an adventure and go on the ferry! Oh boy!!

But furst we had to take Winkie to the vet because he's so full of itchies and swellish red places. Mommy said as long as we were there we'd have the vet look at my warts, too. I always have a few warts.

So we got to the vet and he looked at me furst. Mommy said it would be quick, just a make-sure look-see. But I have this one wart on my neck that I scritch at too much. I even made it bleed once. When the vet saw it he didn't like the look of it. And I didn't like him poking at it. And I had another one on my shoulder that mommy thought was kinda runny. So the next thing I knew I was seeing needles! And then I started feeling dopey. I went ovfur to sit in daddy's lap while the vet looked at Winkie. Not so bad. I thought we were done.

Boy was I wrong! When Winkie got down from the table, I got back up! And then I got shaved, on my neck and on my shoulder. And then I got another shot, to make me MORE dopey. Then we waited. Finally the dogtor came back and said I seemed dopey enough. He stuck me a few times in my shoulder, and then mommy was holding me and talking to me and I think I heard stuff going on back there but I didn't feel anything. Mommy said I was a Good Boy.

Then the dogtor tried to go after my neck again. He tried to stick me with the feel-nothing stuff, but I wasn't having any. The dogtor called the nurse-lady to see if she could hold me better than mommy was doing, but I still wasn't having any. He thought he might have got enough feel-nothing stuff in there anyway, but as soon as he tried to do anything I jumped and squirmed. He said he didn't want to bully me because I was a Good Boy. He said he would have to call in a General (I think that's what he said), and I have to go back tomorrow.

He gave us both treats and I wagged my tail and forgave him. The rest is kinda fuzzy, because I'm pretty looped now! But I know we went to PetSmart, and I got a T-shirt to wear. We got treats there, too. I got a pill when I got home, and now I'm crashed out on the couch with daddy. We're not going on any adventure today. I don't really care. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........

[mommy note: They'll have to take off the neck wart under a general anesthetic tomorrow, and it will be biopsied. This is the second time he's had a growth there. While he's under they'll also remove another wart and a fatty tumor, and clean his teeth, even though they're looking pretty good. He'll probably have to wear the inflatable donut, to try to keep him from scratching at the neck incision. He'll be at the vet all day, until daddy can pick him up after work. I'm not really worried about the biopsy, but we'll be grateful for any and all prayers! He looks pretty cool in his Tommy Bahama T-shirt! That's to keep him off the stitches he got today in his shoulder. I'll get a photo when he wakes up.)

Sending prayers and power of the paw!!!! Mommy called my vet this morning to make an appt. for me because I keep licking a spot on my paw. I howled the entire time so that she could not make the appt. Sometimes a dog does win...although I bet she will sneak in another call when I'm not aware she is calling. The humans can be sneaky at times.
