they embarrase me.
As usual they both go to the vet and usually well behaved. Each time I go in both people always say :"ook there are 2 of them" or "aren't they lovely" and look how well behaved they are once I get them settled.
Yesterday the place was full and after lunging through the door, onto the scales then taking a few moments to settle them I was getting the comments. One couple came to sit beside me to pat them saying they wanted a Lab. The vet came out saying go in as he went to get something.
I stood up and felt Erns jerk his head leaving me with a lead and collar handing from my hand. He took off around the vets after the vet, trying to go up the stairs and not able to so running off. I put Tess into the room and ran after Erns. As I cornered him I heard. "There is another one...then..it's eating my lunch."
I was so embarrsed as I walked them into the consult rooom.Nothing phases the vet who carried on as if nothing happened.
The vet was looking at Erns with me holding his head when Tess started licking his neck. Doc Gary I just love your neck. Pulling back to him as I yanked her off. The vet stlll made no comment. I got her under control pushing her into the corner behind me kneeling on the lead. She got onto my back stretching over me trying to lick the vets neck again as he tried to takes Erns temperature. She is heavy and her weight had me flat on the floor. My very controlled vet said in a loud voice. "For heavens sake sit down Tessa." I wanted to floor to open and swallow me.
Luckily they are usually good or I don't think the vet would have us again. lol.

LOL! Picturing the vet getting his neck licked has me rolling on the floor! I know the embarrassing feeling all too well. Todd bursts into puppy class like he's saying, "ok everyone I'm here, let the party (or destruction) begin!"

LOL "it's eating my lunch" too funny. Laci usually tackles and licks our vet to death and they are on the floor doing this.
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
Lol, what a life the 2 of them have! Their adventures are too funny, most of the time!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
I'd love to be a fly on the wall when the vet tried to explain to his wife that the mark on his neck was a love bite from another female!
And as for the rest of the antics ...........
Of course CCTV footage from the vets of you chasing Earns around would be better! I can just imagine the sight!
Ha ha ha, too funny! I wish I could have seen the facial expressions.
I had the mistaken impression that Jaxx would be the problematic one at the vet. Little did I know, he would be so docile the vet and vet techs asked me if I was sure he was full lab. He was all eyes (and mitts) with a waggly tail. Missy on the other hand...she was a terror. Apparently everything that is not me, my lap, my arms, or Jaxx is incredibly concerning. SHe started howling uncontrollably while running around in circles.
On a more serious note, it made me realize that Missy needs much more socialization at this point because she was clearly very upset at being around so many people and dogs. So we've been working on that.
And yes... it does seem like whenever someone makes a positive comment on our pets they have to go have some fun with it.
Oh my, Chris, that was too funny! Thanks for the great visuals, and the laugh!

They're wonderful! Maybe not ALWAYS well behaved ~ but wonderful!!
