Blue Basset Hound, Re-Check, The End!

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Blue's follow-up Vet visit was today at 10:30 CST. A totally enjoyable experience for me, but Blue wasn't buying into the silence of NO other Pet's or Owner's on the Premises. He was being very UN-Blue like; and only wanted to 'leave now"! The poor Attendant finally had to give him the 'Bear Hug Treatment", its the only way to move a Stubborn, Uncooperative Basset Hound! Little Girl Attendant put him into a Bear Hug and Lugged him into the Exam Room. i promised that the next visit I'd be prepared! A nice Beach Towel underneath him on a slick surface, and U can drag the Hard Head most any where! emoticon

He got a unceremonious rear end cleanse and inspection, and other than having to have the Cyst Lanced, he never budged. All vitals are normal, but we do have to get back to our Wog's! He's gained a lb. He is now passed out in blissful Dogie Dreams as I type and catch-up as U can see by the Picture included here.

Again, Thank You my Spark Friends in my & his time of trials. Keep Sparking!

    Oh what a loveable looking dog Blue is. He's adorable. Looks liek the Dr.'s visit overall was uneventful - prognosis-wise. Hope you both are feeling less stressed. Take care!

    Ah, Blue is smart enough to know that any trip to the doctor means something uncomfortable is going to be said or done. I can't fault him for being so smart.

I'm glad that he is doing better and that this scareis behind you both.

Blue needs a special doggie treat--I get mine peanut butter doggie pops for their special treats. I wonder what he likes??

Take care both of you!!

    Hi Shell,
I'm sending warm thoughts and best wishes to both of you and I'm sending prayers upstairs. You'll be in my thoughts today as I try to wrap up moving in to my new classroom.
Gentle hugs,
