Big Scary Day

On Wednesday, my mom put on my new Thundershirt™, put on my harness and leash, and we went to the car. It was early in the morning, and I didn’t get breakfast. I don’t really like car rides either but I’m a big boy now and so I stuck it out.

We pulled up in front of the scary place- Mom called it the V-E-T- and we went inside. I tried hard not to but she made me. Then we went into a little room and they poked me in the butt to see if I was too warm inside and then Mom took off my harness, shirt, and let the other lady I didn’t know slip a leash over my head and take me away!

I didn’t want to go but they were nice enough to me. I was sad though and I took a nap in the middle of the day and when I woke up, I heard my mom talking in the other part of the building. She said I got neutered! I don’t know what that means but she said it will help me to be a VERY GOOD DOG! so it must be okay.

When we got home, I got a drink, went potty, and had dinner and then I chased my brother around for a while. Mom said I couldn’t lick my belly but I didn’t really want to after the first hour.

Healthy Life

Our mom and dad believe in keeping us healthy and not having to go to the V-E-T for stuff that can be prevented. Mom gives us our shots every year, and she gave me all my puppy shots too.

Even though I was getting all my puppy shots on time, I still got parvo because someone else’s dogs were running around the neighborhood and they were sick. But my mom and dad made sure I took all my medicine after rushing me to the vet as soon as I got sick and gave me lots of fluids. I hated the needle under my skin and the fluids didn’t feel good, but I got better. I wish that hadn’t happened but not everyone is as good as our mom and dad.

Our pawrents also made sure we got spayed as soon as we could. So many puppies don’t have good homes like us and getting us fixed helps not make that problem worse. Angel Dogs did my spay, and for everything else, I go to Dr. Biggerstaff at Quartz Hill Veterinary Clinic.

Tell your folks to be responsible! Get your shots and get fixed!
