Ok this is not REALLY the first time I am going to a vet. This is just the first time I am going with my new owner to her vet, and the first time I am going to a vet in this state!
So my visit went well. When I first came in the door there was this brown and white dog who came running over barking! I was not sure what to think so I fluffed up my hackles at him. He didn't like that so he kept barking but he let me in. I went into the waiting room and I saw a guy dressed in "scrubs" and so I went up to say hello to him. He was nice. That crazy dog kept barking at me though. Then I got to meet my new vet. Apparently that was HER dog barking. He usually doesn't bark so much, we don't know why he was acting like that. Maybe because he didn't understand why his friend (my owner) had a strange dog with her. I found out that he is a Tracking Dog (TD) which my owner wants to train me for also, so we might go to the same trainer.
After that I got in an exam room and I had to ride on a table that goes up in the air, which was weird. Then I got blood taken and I tried to bite the needle (I thought it was biting ME!) They also poked me again for something called a microchip and then they stuck some water in my nose for a "bordetella" whatever that means. I didn't like that part but I did like the part where I got petted and attention!
After the vet we went to the pet store and I met another German Shepherd, they were going out the door when we were coming in and we both stopped to greet each other and blocked the doorway for a while. Then I got some yummy treats from the cashier and my human bought me a nice raw bone to chew on later.
