holidaze visit

Hey, friends, I've been reading your blogs and noticed that some of you got to take trips to visit family and friends over the holidays, and I'm especially glad to hear reports of having fun on these outings. I got to jump in the car and take a little trip one day, too.
I met this very nice lady who gave me pudding to eat, and it was yummy and tasted like figgy pudding. I didn't get to eat much of it, though, before some man came in and broke up our party.
He put me on the table looked at my ears ~~ and had to audacity to tell me they were dirty and poked around until my lovely bat ears met his approval.
He checked my eyes and teeth, and if I hadn't been shaking so badly (and if she hadn't been holding my mouth shut), I might have tried to snap at him.
My heart was racing and I thought I was having a heart attack, so I was glad to hear him say that it was fine. After half an hour of poking and prodding (thank you Motch for not taking pictures of the needle), I finally got to leave and thanked my lucky stars that I didn't have to visit anyone else during the holidaze. May 2009 bring happier times.

Um, uh, weren't doing holiday visiting, you went to the VET!!!!!! I'm sorry to break the news to ya sweet girl, but you're getting older and you need to watch out for these things, ok? Talk to Figgy, she'll fill you in!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Oh dear! The Place of Tile and Steel! I heard something about an appointment made for ME for TOMORROW. Apparently all this puking I've been doing isn't a good thing (sorry sofa). Mom thinks I feasted on some other dog's unfeastables at the kennel and gave myself an infection. Whatever! Sometimes when you party too hard poo gets eaten!

ha! great pics, motch!

sorry i couldn't be there to comfort you, little p.

Peanut said...

Ah you poor thing. I don't have to get up on that table because I'm to big.

Eduardo said...

That was a good plan that Motch had! Telling you you were going visiting & then taking you to the VET! But it wasn't nice to not tell you where you was really going! However I think she did it so you wouldn't freak out, so I forgive her!

Uh oh Petra! That looks like a v-e-t visit!!!So not a cool trip to make during the holidays. Mom is always amazed when Moms take pictures during v-e-t visits because she says I'm a handful and there's no way she could operate a camera and control me at the same time.

Kelli said...

Hi Petra!
You poor little doggie! I'm so glad I don't have to visit my vet until the summer! They are usually nice but they are so RUDE when they give shots and take my temp. Glad to hear you survived!

Joe Stains said...

dang Petra, we know all about those evil dudes. Mom gives us that pudding stuff too, ours is banana flavor and sometimes PRUNES?!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petra!
Those holiday trips are not fun! The only good thing of that sure was the pudding thing she gave you!
Glad is over and you are ok!
Kisses and hugs

Aki and Poopie said...

hahaha PRUNES? come on now, joe. maybe you were not doing your doggie business properly.. hehe.. my hooman takes prunes too. she uses it as "medicine" cause it is a very good laxative.. eherm..

Petrrraaa!! what did they do you? where is that nasty man? do you need any help? we'll lick him silly until he rolls over and lie on his belly.. BOL.

we are glad he stopped poking you though. are you okay girl?

PP, Motch is so sneaky some visit with friends. LOL, Glad those pretty ears are all clean and tidy and that you are a healthy little lady. Nanny isn't sneaky like that she says Pearl lets go time to see the vet, I must be so dumb I say lets go. DUH
Hugs, bellyruns. smoochies

ohmydog - they gave you FIGGY pudding?! so THAT'S what they do with my blood that they steal - make pudding out of it to give to other dogs!!! HORRIFYING!

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh dear Petra. We don't think that they're the type of people you're supposed to visit. That sure doesn't sound like fun at all. At least your ears are nice and clean now.

Hope your 2009 is much better lol.

Did your moomie trick you to get you to the pudding and poking place?! Mine does that to me. Not fair!


Stanley said...

Aw, Petra!

Motch won't be able to get away with that trick again, I bet! But, it looks like you did pretty well at the vet, especially since they were digging around in your cute bat ears!

I bet they heard about how cute you were and wanted to hear your chirping sounds for themselves. Glad you're alright all over and won't have to go back for a long time!

Chin up, little P!

Goober love & smooches,
