|Zim, kicking back at K-State Vet Med Center|
As you can see, he's a guy who knows how to relax. Mom took one of our bone-shaped mats to help him be more comfortable. (Oh. I'm told we only have one of those bone-shaped mats now. Something about the rubber backing getting chew---oh. Never mind. But we only have one now.)
He had a nice, long nap when he got back, then he wanted to go down the street a little and stretch his legs. Cam and I went with him!
|"Do you want to stop and take a break, Zimmie?"|
"Yeah, maybe we should rest for a minute, Zim."
"I'm OK, girls! Really! Let's keep going!"
We knew he wasn't totally himself yet (they gave him a little bit of a sedative to do some of the tests) so we were extra-special gentle with him. Mom was impressed that I knew -- Cammie can always sense these things; she is VERY maternal and kind. I'm a puppy, so I'm just learning "gentle".
|Me, gently snoofing Zimmie|
I sure do love my big brother!
A few days later, we got a bunch of good news about Zimmie, (YEA!) then Mom said she needed to run out and pick up some meds for him.
|"Can I come, too?"|
Me, doing my best Harp Seal Look
How could she say "no"?
|"I'm all set; let's roll."|
That's right; she couldn't say "no". My Harp Seal powers are very, very strong.
Anyway, I got to schmooze a bunch of people at the vet school. Mom was very happy with my good manners. I was very happy with the treats she had tucked into her pocket! I also got to meet the Big Dog who stands guard in the anteroom to the waiting room/reception area.
I very gently rose up, put my paws on him, and sniffed his muzzle. Did I kiss him? I'll never tell.
|Ready to head home!|
It was fun going on a little adventure. Mom appreciated the company and likes that she can take us to the vet's to pick up meds or food - you know, when we don't have to have an exam or anything. She likes us to have positive associations with the place -- like the treats she brought and all the love from the nice people I met! It makes it much less stressful for us when we do have to have an exam!
The BEST part of the day, of course, is the good news on Zim - and getting back home to everyone!
|"Seriously, you guys. She has treats in her left-hand pocket."|
"Got any Stinky Goodness Treats in that pocket?"
As powerful as my Harp Seal Look is, when we triple-team her like that, well ... you can imagine!
Have a wonderful weekend!
