Our mom is a whack job!

Hey there, pups and kitties! It's me, Penny! We found out, a couple days ago, that our mom is a total whack job! She called the v-e-t to get a grooming appointment for Patches and they told her that Patches was over due for her yearly vaccinations. Mom told the lady that that was wrong...Patches already had her shots. Sooooo, the lady asked Mom to bring a copy of the receipt. Mom told her that they (the v-e-t-s office) already had the records since that's where Patches got her shots. The vet lady said they had no record of it, so Mom dug through all her doggie records and guess what! That lady was right!

I guess our whack job of a mom thought it was already done since she spent like a bazillion dollars and kept taking both of us to see the v-e-t or the groomer! Well, haha on Patches! She had to go YESTERDAY! I'm going to turn the bloggy over to her now, so she can bark you all about it!

Hi peeps and pups! It's me, Princess Patches! Let me tell you, I wasn't feeling too much like a Princess, yesterday morning. First, my mom tried to put the power steering collar on me (that's the one with all the hurty prongs). She said it was like trying to put a collar on a piranha. It also didn't help that Penny wanted the collar on HER! Finally, we got the collar on and then Mom had to distract Penny so she could get me out to the Aire-mobile by myself! This is no easy trick since Penny is quite the escape artist when she knows that somedoggie is going in the Aire-mobile without HER! We finally arrived and found out that I have lost 3 pounds since I had my toofies cleaned! Mom says, "Woohoo" and I say, "ppppffffffttttttttt!". It is sooooo not fair that Penny's treats are always bigger than mine. ALWAYS!

Well, I got all my shotses and they stole my blood! I let them take my temperature (even though I HATED it), but I was sure hoping they wouldn't have to steal any of my poop! I'm pretty sure that was in their evil plan to torture me, but I fooled them! On our way to the front door, I left them a nice, big deposit! Whew, I dodged THAT bullet! Somehow, Mom wasn't nearly as excited when they handed her a glass bottle with a swabber in it and told her to go get a little "sample". Sorry, Mom, but that's what you get for taking me there in the first place! Hahahahahaha!

The v-e-t says I'm very healthy and he'll see me in 6 months. What? He says now that I'm 7 years old, I really should see him every 6 months. Well, we'll SEE about that! Unless we win the lottery, I don't think Mom can afford to do this TWICE a year!

We would like to say Happy Canada Day to Sunshade, Jaffa, Chef and all our other buddies in Canada. We would also like to say Happy 4th of July to all of our pals in the USA and don't forget to salute our troops! Freedom isn't FREE, ya know!

I love your writing!!! Very cute!!! You bring a smile to my face!!! Thank you!!! Bambi hates to go to the vet too!!! We can't affored to take her as often as she should go and she is almost 13 years old!! She is doing pretty good except for the bumps all over her and there is one that is close to her heart!!! That really worries us!!
Come and see us. Happy 4th of July!
XXOO, Bambi & her Mom (Fern)

Hey Patches
I've been going to the vet every week for the last 3 weeks and I have to go again next Wednesday. I have a ruptured ear drum and there was lots of gunk in there but thats getting better. My hearing is not so good now because of all this....sigh.

We're glad you gave the vet his poop sample, Patches! He did enough "damage" for one day without messing with your butt too!

Wyatt said...

I agree... the vets is a scary place. They act all smoochie nice, while they are jabbing you with needles and looking at your bum. Best to be avoided!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Patches!
You are lucky! I have to go there every month for pawdicure and butticure and every 3 months for shots!
Glad everything went well!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Niamh said...

Moms do get confused about stuff. We think our person is wearing out and getting forgetful now that she is 385 in dog years. Glad to hear that you are the picture of health though.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Hollie and Janie said...

Sorry you had to go to the vet, but I'm happy to hear your healthy!! Your sweet mama has had quite a year!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

So. Was Penny happy when you got home? Or did she think you smelled funny from being at the vet? Whatever. We hope BOTH of you got treats (equal in size) when you got home. It's always a harrowing ordeal.

Here's to your health!
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Stanislaw said...

Big Pupi is turning 7 (we think) in a few weeks and there's no way he'll put up with full checks every 6 months! That's crazy talk.

Hope you've recovered from your doctor visit!

Dexter said...

Now ladies, please go easy on your poor old mom. She can be forgetful, but she still loves you and takes good care of you.

I am quite familiar with the traffic jam at the door when only ONE doggie is going someplace. Seems most unfair to me.


Eric said...

Hey girlies! Glad you vet visit is over and done with Patches and Penny it's smashing to see your pretty face. Happy 4th July to you both. paws crossed the fireworks will be pretty but silent!

Wiry love Eric xx

Glad you are ok though!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh...we hate those "samples" too...why the hoomans are so obsessed with our derrieres is beyond me...

But Mumsie sez drivin' a hot car with a "sample" in it is no picnic either....
