Off to the vet December 4, 2008

Yesterday was annual vet day for Bubba and Allie.  This is always an adventure, but yesterday was more so because of cold weather.  Bubba and Allie almost never ride in a car and we usually walk to the vet’s office, it’s only about 3 blocks from our house.

Yesterday we decided to take the van.  Once on harness leashes are on we are ready to go.  Both dogs go for the sidewalk, not the van.  Once we get them in the right direction now we have to get them in the van.  They didn’t understand and it took a little doing.

My daughter sat in the back with them for the trip, it’s a good thing it was only 3 blocks. 

They got out of the van much easier than they got in and we got inside without incident.  The weigh in also went okay.  Bubba weighs almost 44 pounds and Allie is 34 pounds. 

The exam room was okay.  Bubba did pee twice on the cabinets and walls.  You have to love boy dogs.  Other than that it was about normal.  Allie was a nervous wreck and shook the whole time.  Bubba was pretty much disinterested in the whole thing.  Both dogs are healthy and normal. 

We did opt for the 3 year vaccine this time.  The vet said it might make Allie a little sore since she is a smaller dog and it did.  Today we are just taking things easy and giving her some asprin.  We’ll still make the annual visit minus the shots.

I’m really glad we only have to do this once a year.
