Bloodwork Part I

Saturday began as all days do for me: hungry. Unfortunately for me, it was also a weekend so that meant that breakfast might be later than usual. Still, it seemed that Mom was making even less of an effort to come down and feed me (um, I mean, US).

Here we are waiting patiently at the bottom of the stairs.

I pointed out Bathsheba's empty dish, but to no avail. THEN Mom says, "No breakfast!" And Dad brings out the prisoner transport unit (PTU). It's off to the vet for me! I tried to protest, and I put up a good fight about being put into the PTU, but with both Mom AND Dad fighting against me, they managed to shove me inside. While I often holler a lot in the car, this time I decided not to waste my breath because I've come to learn that it's a futile effort.
Once at the vet, appropriately named BATTLEFIELD Animal Clinic, we were greeted by Gypsy the office manager and receptionist. She turned to say something to a fellow staff member just as Mom snapped her picture.

See next post for a continuation, since Blogger is being uncooperative and won't let me post more pictures here.

Jeter, we haven't changed over to the new Blogger yet, but we periodically have problems posting photos. We get the "done" message and it says the photo has been added, but it's not there. Maybe things will be better in new blogger, but our secretary is nervous about any switch since she's not very tech-savvy.

As for Gypsy, she's very cute, but she's also very professional and all business. She doesn't date clients. Bummer.

I am glad to read that your bloodwork came back good and you only have to take half a pill per day. For a trip to the vet, it sounds like you had very little trouble. I know you hate to go, but it helps your beans keep you healthy and at least you finally got your breakfast.
