What Hit Me?Posted: September 12, 2017
This is me on drugs. It all started bright and early yesterday morning . . . a little too bright and early for my taste. Normally my human mommy lets me sleep in while she gets up to prepare my breakfast, but not yesterday. Just past the crack of dawn, I heard, “Come on, Miss Lee. We need to get going.” She led me into the laundry room, where I usually find my breakfast waiting for me, but my bowl was empty and the water bowl was missing. Hmmmmm, something was not quite right. Then she hooked my leash to my collar and we set out on our morning walk, but there was something not quite right about the route we were taking. And then all of a sudden it hit me: We were headed toward the V-E-T. WHAT!?!
Most of the day was a total blur. I have no idea what hit me, but the next thing I knew it was the afternoon and I was sitting in an exam room. I vaguely recall my human mommy having a conversation with my V-E-T. There was something about my teeth being beautiful and clean. And then they started talking about my butt. WHAT!?!
Remember when I assisted Dr. Julie Buzby as she presented “All Hands on Dog: 10 Touches That Could Save Your Dog’s Life” at BlogPaws 2017? Do you remember Touch 10: Under the Tail? Well, Dr. Buzby found a very small mass in a private place just under my tail. (I’m not going to be more specific. This is embarrassing enough. I think you know where.) Naturally, my human mommy immediately brought it to the attention of my V-E-T, and we decided to watch it and, if we didn’t see any changes, to wait to remove it when I had my next teeth cleaning. In other words, friends, I got it at both ends yesterday. But I also got some pretty good drugs, so I’m not complaining. The V-E-T says that he doesn’t expect the little mass to be anything serious, but just in case it’s gone to the lab to be analyzed. We’ll get the results later this week or early next week. Until then, I’m going to enjoy my buzz as long as I possibly can.
