When I turn off the highway they start getting excited. When I turn into the street the vets are on the go nuts and Tessa who takes a toy everywhere makes a high pitched squeek through the toy. I walk them a few moments to take some of the edge of them, but the other day it was raining so quick walk then into the vets.
I have never seen it so busy so they were on peak form. Usually I walk straight in, put them on the scales while they sniff the food, go to the other side of the room and put them in a down stay with no problems.
Instead of food by the scales that keep them occupied while on the scales there were dog toys and Tessa had to have several. Leave Tess...Sit Ernie...Tess. leave..Pick up your toy. Erns started barking..Mum she has got a toy..I want one and got on the scales with her. I could feel everyones eyes on me as I we entertained them.
Fashion policeman Erns noticed the Border Collie wearing a huge over sized red coat so stuck his nose under the coat trying to flick it off, while Tess bunted its face..Do you want my toy...do ya...do ya.. Erns continued to try and get the coat of it as I dragged them away. The owner thought they were hilarious.
The receptionist said I will tell the vet Tess and Ernie are here. I think he knows. lol. As I sat down I said to everyone "next show a month from today". Put them in the down stay and they did their usual spread themselves out, then when the vet calls me I have to tell them twice to get up and they quietly walking into the consult room. Of course by then everyone had gone.
Love the story and feel your pain! Dio always hams it up at the vet.

Oh, they are perfect angels compared to Blaise.
From the time we cross the threshold - Barkbarkbarkbarkbarkbark - at the other dogs, at the kittens available for adoption, at the people coming and going, at the folks working there - barkbarkbarkbarkbark.
Then when he gets shown into an exam room, total silence while he tries to make himself invisible.

LMBO!!!! I am surprised Ernie doesn't invite them all over for a pool party......oh wait! He doesn't even like Tessa in it!!
I can totally see Ernie and Tessa zeroing in on the coated collie!!!!!!!!!! Baahahaaaww!
Your mistake was in entertaining the idea that they couldn't embarass you any more! Those 2 never fail to make me laugh!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
