And they called it Puppy Love...

Thanks everybody for your feedback. I guess none of us have yet to successfully gotten out of the vet visits so far. LS is not budging from her decision either.

Since I'm not an expert escape artist (yet), I'm going to practise clamping my mouth shut at the vet.

What do you think?

Truth be told, I don't like my new vet. LS said I should give her a chance. Mmph...

I missed my old vet but he has moved a distance away. I still remember my first visit. It was love at first bite. Hee...

I remember him asking LS if I bite and she said not that she knew of. How naive of him to take her words for it! When he reached for me so enthusiastically with a needle, I reciprocated with a good chomp.

I remember him giving me a startled look while I looked back with glee. LS stared at me in disbelief, but quickly regained her composure to congratulate him for being the first to be bitten by me. Yes, she has a weird sense of humour.

I certainly wasn't the best behaved dog at his clinic that day. I kept barking at a big golden retriever, not realising that his bottom alone could muffle me effectively. I've also frightened a kitty so much that LS had to take me outside to wait for our turn. Oh boy, was I a really naughty puppy or what?

But still the vet wasn't mad at me. Instead, he gave me a treat, which multiplies over time. How can one not love a vet like him?

Do you like your vet?

Thinking of you and LS with much love.

Well done eating a vet that deserves a reward, well I think so John does not. When I go the nurse puts a muzzle on me before the vet sees me.
They can not put a muzzle on to check your teeth, so Happy happy biting.

Roxy said...

Hello, Happy! I don't like my vet because of vaccination, but I've heard that he's really good, so I make an effort to tolerate him :))

Maggie and Mitch said...

Our vets give us treats too, Happy, but neither one of us is crazy about the visits!
We're glad your vet wasn't mad when you chomped down on him!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Everything about the vet makes me pretty scared! Just thinking about it makes my tail cringe.

We once had a tiny Chihuahua who managed to pee and poop on a brand new vet who was just trying to examine her. We were afraid he would make a career change, but he didn't.

Oh Happy - you really had me giggling at this post! What great stories! I could just picture it! Your old vet sounds wonderful. I miss my old vets back in Auckland too - I don't like my new one in Brisbane at all - he didn't take any time to make friends with me but just grabbed me and stuck a thermometer in my bum! Lucky for him I'm such a laid-back girl otherwise he would have got a chomp! Hsin-Yi was really disgusted and couldn't believe how a vet could know so little on how to behave around dogs...

Hi, Happy!
My Vet is very nice but he scares me. Your know, the surgeries, the vaccines, the butt squeezes, the nails... but until today I have never bitten him!
He gives me treats but I don't like them!
Kisses and hugs

I don't like vet visits. I esp hate the slippery table. So, the vet has to treat me on the floor. But my vet doesn't give me treats. Mum usually brings her own to bribe me...doesn't always work :-(

Clamping down your teeth is a good idea. Did you really scare a kitty? We hate going to the vet too but at least you got a treat!

Thor said...

Hi Happy!
My vet is a nice girl but I don´t like to be there!
Glad your vet gave you treats, though.


Eric said...

Happy that was a funny story. yeh keeping the moth closed is s good wheeze. Good luck with that.

I love the vets, intersting an promises of treats and fusses from the nurses! If I walk by it I pull to go in there! When I was a puppy I had a very macho young Australian vet. Mom was gobsmacked when on our first visit for injections he scooped me up for a cuddle and showered me with kisses on my head!!!! Haaaaaaa!!!

Wiry love Eric xx

Santa and Minnie said...

Hi Happy, we came over from Pet Pride and nice meeting you. We have enjoyed this funny post and your sense of humour. Will be back for more.

Peggy said...

Blessings Happy and LS!!! This is pretty hilarious! The vet will probably tie your mouth shut since you have this nippy trick! I hope that you make it through this visit with all in tact! Be good for LS!
She loves you! And not at all like your puppy love or first bite! ohh and LS delight my nights many times with such happy moments.

Thinking of you and hoping for the best! You look so sweet. Just hum the song...and they called it puppy love and you'll do great! Looking forward to your next venture!

love, hugs & wags...from Peggy & the other 6

Happy, you are so beautiful, you do not need any cosmetic dentist-work!

And I really HATED my old vet (so did mom) So we found a new one!

Ruby and Penny said...

Love Ruby & Penny

Too funny! HoneyDew loves going to the vet. She thinks it is social hour. However Sampson had a disasterous experience and to this day doesn't like the going.

Cassie said...

Oh Happy, you are a little stinker, and yet your vet loved you. I hope you grow to love your new vet too.

We both love our vet in N.Idaho, Dr.Hall. He is crazy for both of us and even gave us his home phone# in case we need him when the office is closed!! He was the only vet that could give our (nolonger with us)Persian cat brother,Chuck, a complete physical. All the Phoenix vets were too afraid of him.Ha! We'll have to do a post on him when we return.

Hi Happy! *wags wags wags* It's nice to come around and my doggie pals.

I miss my vet - and that's a great time cos I've not seen him since my last annual jab.

Keep well, stay happy!

Chef said...

I love my vet except when she sticks that thingy up my bumbum. Then I don't like her. But then I like her again when she gives me a treat. I have a love/hate relationship for her. Mostly love, tho.

You are lucky, Happy! I never got a single treat from any of my vets. Thank you so much for keeping up with my adventures. I have to do better in keeping up with yours! Thanks so much for being my friend! Love, Dino
