Don't worry, I'm fine.

Wooos, pups.  I had to go to the Newport Animal Hospital on Friday.  I've been feeling just fine, so I wasn't sure what this was about.  In preparation, I had to endure a b-a-t-h on Thursday, so I suspected that whatever this visit was for, it must be important.

The vets built a nice new place since I was there last.  Maybe they just want my approval.  I looked out the window - nice view.  
Then I inspected the lobby - nice lobby, plenty of room, lots of interesting smells.  
 My nose led me to this corner - hmm, maybe they just want me to taste-test some of this stuff.
A male biped came out & led us down the hallway to a smaller room.  Then things took a turn for the worse.  Now I ask, honestly, how many of our bipeds consider their trip to the doc a "photo opportunity"?   Do they splash their exam room photos on the internet?  Harumph!   Here I am being tortured by the vet techs....
Don't worry, I'm just fine.  In fact, I'm in splendid shape for my age, not that I'm old or anything.  Great teeth, great fur, great weight, great nails, great disposition.... which was tried to its limits while they did unspeakable things to me, stole my blood, ruined my claws, and jabbed me with needles.  I was furry happy to leave that place!   It may look nicer, but its no more fun than it used to be.  They do not get my approval.  

Then of course, there is that picture of Ao4 Dave with his vet.   Well, I think I should demand to be flown across country so I can go there next time.  I'm just sayin.

PS- humom says I should also say that I really do like my vet, Dr. Wirth.  He's exceptional, for a human.  And those vet techs were furry gentle with me.  I just didn't like what they DID.

Woo, Star, we know how you feel, we have to endure the same torture and embarrassment too. Nice of them to have such a big lobby - our si so very small. Mom doesn't like being in there with the little yappetizers and US:)

Glad to hear all is well with you.

We like our vet too, though we do not always like the things they want us to do. Like that temperature thing. I mean, really.

My mum has put pictures of me being tortured at the vet on my blog too. Honestly, they have no shame. I am glad to hear all is well with you Star.

That looks like a nice facility, but I can't believe they did such unspeakable things to you! Last time we went to the vet, Steve just rolled over and let the vet rub all over his tummy, but I laid very close to the wall. I was hoping the vet wouldn't see me, but she did.

I like my vet too, but like everyone else, I don't like what he does to me. The office looks very nice. The waiting area at my vet is very, very small.

I don't like going to the vet but Brice loves it!

The new vet place looks nice and big. Lots of room to spread out and not be too close to a sick pup.

Woo, Star. What a nice-looking facility! Sorry you had to have some unspeakables done to you but REALLY glad you had a good report!
PS: I'm willing to share my Dr. Akers, if you want to come down here. She gives the BEST hugs and tummy rubs and chest thumpies!
