what did you say?!!?….the VET??

Maddie L-O-V-E-S going to the vet.  The word alone makes her go into a frenzy.  “What?  The vet? When? When? When? When do we get to go??”

She got her wish on Monday this week.  It was time for her yearly checkup and shots to remain legal (i.e. rabies and boosters).  She smiled the whole way there.  Literally shaking with anticipation – and a 53 pound anything is VERY difficult to contain when the excitement reaches that level.

She jumped on the vet tech.  She jumped on the vet.  She jumped on a larger vet tech (the other tech decided Maddie was a bit to much for her).  Fortunately, we’ve been going to the same vet before we had Maddie and they all know and tolerate us.  Maddie, however, allowed us to be on a first name basis.  As a puppy we were there every other week with SOME kind of problem.  Puppy shots…UTIs…ear infections…the squirts….weird smell….weird behavior…we rushed her to the vet every single time something seemed a little off.  She was our first dog.  Kind of like your first born.  Everything is an emergency and everything is documented.  With the second one we’ll just throw some rubbing alcohol on it.  It will save us tons of money and time.  We probably won’t have as many puppy pictures of the that one either…

I brought cheese for treats to help keep Maddie as focused as possible.  Turns out, it didn’t matter.  I don’t think she realized anything happened other than extra attention.  Shot?  Oh, no problem.  Just stick it right over there.  Keep my face in front of the people and I’m all set.

At least we don’t have to drag her.  She’s more or less dragging us.
