Blimey Charlie mates, we went to the Vets yesterday and she STOLE our blood. It all started as a nice quiet Wednesday.
Mum decided she needed to go shopping. Needed to mum? Or just plain wanted to. Hmmm. We'll let the readers decide that one. She said we needed dog food. Well she totally forgot the dog food but she did come back with this:
She said now we can have a cuppa and some toast for dinner every night and she'll never have to cook again. The family told her "She's dreamin".
Anyhoo, back to the story. Mum was meeting us at the Vets cause she was running late. She was waiting and waiting and then got a phone call from Dad. HE WAS VERY CROSS!!!
Rory would not get in the car! Now I thought it was hilarious. I was sitting in the car, calling him, laughing at Dad and having a wonderful old time. There was Dad, trying his best, but Rory would not get in. He went and hid under the bushes. Rory, not Dad!
Dad doesn't know why he wouldn't get in. Usually Mum is with us so we reckon he was just being a total SOOKY LA LA. I couldn't help it Stellie, I was a bit scared and wanted mum. That's ok Rory, everyone knows you are a Mum's boy. It was bloomin' funny though. Hehehehe. Well, I thought so but Dad had a different opinion. Anyhoo, Dad got some treats and before he could say "Rory, get in that blxxxy car" he jumped in easy as, and off they went.
We did get our seat belts put on!
So we got to the Vets for our yearly immunisation. All is going well. We are both a bit nervous cause we haven't been for a while butt our Vet Anna is lovely and a very gentle person so we relax and we're "Good Dogs". Anna gives us liver treats, then mum gives us some and before we knew what was happening we had been jabbed and didn't even know it.
We are feeling happy. Mum, Dad and Anna are jabbering away and then we hear "blood test" and wonder what the heck is going on. Apparently since we changed our Dog School and are driving down to the big smoke, hehe, Adelaide, we are more at risk of Heart Worm. Here in the Adelaide Hills it is extremely rare (colder weather maybe) and the Vet has not seen a case for years. Anyhoo just to be on the safe side we had to be tested for Heart Worm. I, being the
Mum held my head and told me how absolutely wonderful I was and Anna stole my blood. She was so darn quick I didn't have time to even squeak. Next it was Rory's turn. He didn't get to go up on the table like me. Don't know why. Anyhoo, he just stood there with mum telling him he was wonderful too. Before Rory could say, Muuuuuuuuuum, Anna was finished with him too. Jeez she's fast.
So last thing we had our weight checked on the scales. I was a trim, taut and terrific 14.4 kgs (31.7 lbs) and Rory was a cool 74 kgs (163 lbs). We said see ya later mates and off we went home.
About an hour later we got a phone call to say everything was fine and next week we go back for a once a year injection to prevent heartwork. Easy Peasy.
Well, that's all for now folks.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
