Guess who came in to help her with the exam!!??!? BETH! We all love Beth - she's a very cool Vet Tech who's really great with us and always asks about the whole Army of Four and she is owned by Border Collies! Here I am, hanging out with Beth in the exam room:
They don't make me get on the table or anything - we just all goof around on the floor. I put about 100 sticky-rollers worth of Sibe fur all over Beth, Ami and Dr. Nelson's black slacks before all was said and done. Ha roo roo roo! I'm a Siberian; sharing my fur with everyone comes naturally to me.
I had to do a couple "holding real still" things, while they listened to my heart and lungs, checked my eyes and ears and teeth, and did other stuff. That went pretty well. They also had to take some of my blood for my Heartworm test and to run a CBC. Mom fed me cookies the whole time, so I held back my blood from my back leg after they found the vein, just so they'd have to keep trying. Eventually they switched to the front leg and hit pay-dirt there. I figure I got about 2500 extra cookies that way. Ha roo roo roo. Pretty good, huh?
Here I am with Ami:
Ooooh, is that a cookie, Ami?
Do you pups understand now why we all love going to the vet's? They all come down to our level and make us feel so comfortable and give us COOKIES! Dr. Nelson gave me a few, too, just because I was so good. She says we shouldn't have to sit or anything for our cookies there because we have enough challenges. Wow, is she nice! Mom says we should sit anyway. Hrmph!
I got to schmooze the ladies at Discharge, too; I love seeing them! And I saw Dr. Riegel there - he's done dentals on Dave, Storm and me AND just recently on a Siberian TIGER! WOWZERS! (When they put that story up on the website, we'll link to it! What an incredible experience for him! And the whole Teaching Hospital!) Mom asked him which he liked working on best, Siberian Tigers or Siberian Huskies; he said it was a loaded question. He probably didn't want to offend the tiger. Ha roo roo roo!
All-in-all, a great day for me, the Z-man. Everypuppy sure was happy to see me when I got home, and sniffed me over real well. I told them all about it and we played zoomies in the living room for a while. I had fun at the vet's, but it was great to get home!
Play bows, everypup!
