Dog doctor



I have been off to visit my Doggie Doctor today - Anne Willis at Argyl Vets - a very kind lady who gave me a doggie treat as soon as I walked in the door, not a bad start to a visit I'd say.

After a short examination, Anne couldn't find anything obviously wrong with my leg, but having listened to what mum and dad told her, she decided it would be best to put me on a course of anti-inflammatory tablets.  I have to go back after a week to see her again, if things haven't improved.  So all mum and dad have to do now is stop me from running about and give me a tablet once a day, in a treat of course, or I will refuse to eat it.....that should be fun for them.....

....as it is, when we got home, their first attempt with the tablet failed miserably and I did not approve of their pathetic attempt to disguise it in some cheese!....mum said I looked very disapproving, so she did a quick contour sketch of me...







hopefully the 'tablet giving game' won't be
too traumatic for mum and dad.....heehee

  2. Oh William! Your humans are kind to stuff it in cheese. Mine just stuff the pill(s) down my throat. GAG. Do you know what's wrong with your leg and how it got ouchy? And now that you're definitely having to rest, have you given any thought to taking part in the fart event for the Olympics? Hugs x

    P.S. your mama can draw! :)

  3. Ouch, poor you William. Rosie Mae has been resting up a bit too after she hurt her leg and was limping a bit. She's much better now and I hope you feel better soon too. I know only too well about trying to disguise medication, good luck to your Mum and Dad!!

  4. Hi William great picture. Love the tablet game , what is your top score of spitting it out? My fav is the side spit as they never notice it straight way.
    Best wishes Molly

    1. I've got a really good trick Molly - I pretend to take it and then literally chuck it out like I'm throwing it across the room!

  5. I can hide a tablet in my jowls for hours if necessary and then spit it somewhere secret. Shhhhhhhh. Monty Dog.

  6. Tell the Humans you demand Prime Rib with your tablet! LOL (Or maybe bologna) And tell your Mum she caught your disdain perfectly in her contour sketch!
