Lee's Annual Check Up - by Lee

As I mentioned yesterday, my Lady was pretty sick last week, but was well enough in time to take me to the vet for my annual check up. 

I cried the whole way in the car. Lady is sure Phod cried the whole time we were gone as he is not use to being alone.

I didn't have to wait long before I had to go on the scale (Lady says Lady's don't share their weight, but since I am not really a Lady, I will say, I am 40 lbs), and was taken to my room. 

I had to wait in the room forever. I did not like it. But as soon as the vet came in, I went to his feet and sat. I remembered he gave me cookies.

I was very good during the exam. Dr. W checked ever inch of me because Lady noted that 4 times in the previous week, I had randomly screamed. She said it wasn't enough to go in, but since I was there . . . . .  Dr. W found a slightly tender spot in my back and said I had a pinched nerve or pulled muscle. He suggested rest (which I have not being doing that well with) and monitoring. Lady hasn't noticed any yelling the past few days, so maybe I am cured.

I took my shots like a champ. While we were waiting to pay, as the tech was teaching someone new, I had to wait a long time. I kept barking at Lady to leave.

I slept all the way home. 

I am not sure who was happier we were home, Phod or me! 

Anyway, I am a healthy girl, whose age is starting to show.


  1. oh bravo and applause for getting such good results! we go thursday... the mama feels the upcoming shame today LOL

  2. It's good to hear you got a good checkup. I have to go see my vet this week too.

  3. Vet visits are never any fun but we're glad to hear you are doing well and whatever was hurting you is doing better now.

  4. so glad you are heathy and done for another year I hope... doctors make me want to whimper and WAITING makes me want to cry loudly

  5. You wuz very brave. Tomorrow Dilly has an appt with a technician for a nail trim. She will not be brave. This is why it has to be done by a technician.

  6. We think you were well-behaved during your exam. Glad you're healthy and good to go for another year!

  7. Lee you are so funny. Did Phod notice that you smelled like the vet or was he so happy he didn't care? Yay for your good check up
    Hugs cecilia

  8. Excellent vet report, L. Even though you cried a little while you were waiting, I think you were very brave!

    Love and licks,

  9. Lee, that was an impressively thorough account of your check up, and Gail and I are so pleased that you are a healthy girl.
    Toodle pip!

  10. Yay for a healthy report card!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  11. We're glad your vet visit went well, Lee, despite the shots.

  12. We are glad you had such a good report, despite the sore neck. Hopefully that is all gone now too.

  13. Going to the vet isn't always fun but we're glad you got a good report. Age is just a number, Hailey!

  14. Paws up for your A+ check up and don't worry about "age", it means very little if you're
    healthy, strong and happy ... and loved!

  15. Way to be such a good girl for the vet!!! Our vet has given me CHEESE before. We pups just don't forget momentous occasions like that - am I right?!?
    Hope you don't have any more pain!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher
    PS: Cam and I hate to be apart, too.

  16. Good job, Lee!!! I hope that the awful pain doesn't happen to you ever again. I do believe that you are a Lady so the Lady should not have revealed your weight ;)
