Rory goes to the Vet

Howdy Everybuddy

Yesterday mum had to take Rory to the Vet.  He had a couple of lumps and they were getting bigger.  Mum didn't say anything cause she thought she was worrying enough for all of Blogville.  The good news is that they are NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT!!!  Yaahooooo.  Apparently they are fluid filled cysts and our dear Vet, Miss Anna, checked them out and drained them.  All gone, all good.  They might come back, they might not, BUTT the main thing is they don't make Rory sore or sick.

Hey Stellie, I want to tell the story too!  

Ok, little brother, you tell everybuddy how good you were and how proud of you mum was.  Well mates, I'm kinda proud of him too, and relieved, cause even though I like to boss the poor little bloke around, I do love him.

Well everybuddy, it was so exciting.  Mum and sissy took me, and only me, to the Vet, all by themselves.  Dad was at work and even though I am a good boy, mum still worries in case I see a doggie who yells HBO words at me cause then she thinks I might yell back at them and be a bum.  Well I can tell you, I was the perfect gentleman.  Mum said I was just fabo and kept telling me what a good little man I was.

We arrived on time but the poor reception lady had double booked our appointment.  She was real sorry but they have a new computer system just started and she was still getting used to it.  That is fine cause we just went for a little walk and mum made me do some obedience outside, up and down the street, and this helped me relax.

Here I am waiting to go into the Vet.  Their waiting room is small, so we waited outside so we didn't bother anyone else who might be surprised at my size.  

When we went in the first thing Miss Anna does is weigh me on a giant scale.  I step up on it easy peasy cause mum makes me walk along things at Dog School and now I know it's not scarey.  I had to sit and wait for the scale to tell us my weight.  Mum thought for sure I would be around 78 kgs (171 lbs) butt she was wrong.  Up came the figure of 84 kgs (185 lbs).  Mum nearly yelped cause I have put on 10 kgs in the last 8 months.  I'm not fat though.  I am tall and solid and the Vet said I was perfect.  I think I am too hehe.

Then we went into the examination room but sadly I did not get lifted up onto the table, sigh.  I just sniffed around and slobbered on Miss Anna while she examined my lumps.  No worries, she said (well she didn't actually say those words butt that is what she meant hehe).  I will get a sample from your bump and see what's going on.  My mum gave me an ear rub while Miss Anna got an injection and withdrew all this brownish fluid from me.  I didn't move a muscle and can't actually remember her doing anything.  Mum said I was A GOOD BOY!  After that mum and Miss Anna went blah blah, clean teeth, blah blah, eat more bones, blah, blah, blah for absolutely ages. 

Apparently my teeth have a little tartar so now I have to clean my teeth and eat more bones and chewy things butt I have to admit, I'm not much into chewing stuff.  I know it's weird, but mum says I'm just a bit too lazy.  Hehe, she's probably right!

Stella will chew for hours.

I chew for a few minutes!

Mum is this a cow's ear?  
OMD, mum, it's not one of our friends from the paddock is it?
I don't think I can eat anymore mum.

After we came home, mum was smiling and happy all day.  We love it cause you know that a happy mum makes a happy house.  Well mates, that's it for now.  Sorry to make you worry mum.  Stoopid bumps.  

Thanks for coming to the Vets with me sissy.

 Keep still Rory.  I'm just checking for more lumps.
Hehe, ahahaha,he, ha, ooo stop it Stellie, that tickles.

 I'm kinda sleepy now.

Shhhhh.  Don't wake up my little brother.  
He's tired out.  See ya all soon.  
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  8. Mom had a previous doggie that use to get those those king of bumps.....once you know what they are you don't worry so much. You did very good at the dogtors

  9. OMD Rory thank your lucky paws that it was nothing to worry about. Wow you were so good at the vets. I hate the place. Anyways we are so pleased for you pal. Our old vet suggest raw chicken wings for good teeth but peeps won't give me any as they'd probably end up in the bed. Sigh! Have a serene Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. Rory... Little.... BOL!!

    Glad they weren't anything to worry about!

  11. I'm so glad you are ok, YAY! And I'm deep impressed: 84 kg - wow! My vet has also only a small waiting room, once I was waiting there with 3 other peeps&pets as I felt an urgent necessity in my plumbing. The smell was godawful and we left the waiting room before we passed out. My dad turned back and said: sorry, was my wife.... wow, he must be happy that he is still alive, I thought mom would kill him :o)Since that date, we always waiting outside :o)

  12. Whew, we're so glad to hear the lumps are only cysts and nothing to worry about. (Muffin and I have them too, so you're not alone!) You were so good on your visit to the Vet's. We know how happy that makes your Mum. It's a good thing they didn't put you up on the exam table bcuz the Vet would need a ladder just to talk to you :)

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  13. Oh great news! We worry too, and are cranky until we get results back from the vet on anything!


  14. What pawsome news. You keep an eye on your brother Miss Stella & make sure you report any lumps & bumps to your mom.

    Happy snoooze-a-roo Rory - you deserve it.

  16. Phew, glad it was nothing, going to the V.E.T.S can be a scary experience though.

I just don't have the long lanky look...... And Stella - you were a great support to your brother. I am impressed with the new header where you look all sleek and glam! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty

  28. Oh Rory - so glad everything was all OK. Looks like you had lots of fun afterwards - enjoy your snooze. Woofs and licks from Magic xx

  29. Great pictures! And we are so glad to hear that the lumps were nothing serious!

    185 lbs! Wow, that's huge! But you know what our mom said? That just means there is more of you to love! BOL

  30. I'm glad to hear everything is OK! My, oh, my, you sure are one big boy!

  31. Hey big guy! We are so glad to hear that your bumps and lumps were nothing to worry about. Of course your Mom would be worried, that is just what Moms do. We worry. A whole lot.

  32. So glad you are ok! The bumbs are a dane thing (because we are bred to be GREAT!). My mom takes me to a regular vet and a holistic one...she said to put a cap full of apple cider vinegar in my water. Mom does it and it helps my "bumps". Also, I do not like to chew bones (plus moms worries)...but I got a gum ball that is fun to play with (careful Stella might make it hers!). Love the pics of you two playing together.

  33. Hi Rory and Stella, sorry we missed this post. My dad gets busy with his work and stuff and forgets to log in to see the really important stuff. Well lumps are nothing new to me. I have a few but our vet said that they're "fatty deposits" and that we'll just keep an eye on them. My brother Owen had a lumpy removed last summer. It was a low grade C and it's not expected to come back but we check often just in case. Thanks for coming by my bloogie.

  34. White Dog howls of happiness that the bumps are nothing to worry about. We bet your mum was beside herself with fear (ours would have been). You were VERY brave and Stella is right to be so proud of you.

  35. We're sorry to learn you had bumps but are most relieved they were easily treated and you are enjoying the best of health, cher ami. We're not at all surprised at your weight, and being as you're still a growing boy, we expect you to top 200 lbs. by the time you're fully grown in another year :) We'd be more curious to see you standing next to a measuring stick that gave your shoulder height: we're guessing you're 36 - 38 inches at the shoulder, easy.

    Wish we could be there for Stella's upcoming birthday! Can't wait to see the pictures of her party.
