    DefaultThe Mess Pot's Yearly Check-up Report

    okay, back by popular demand the Latest Mess Pot Story.....my description of his four year old check up two weeks ago....

    "He's So Loud"

    Well, he strolled into the waiting room with his harness around his chest.
    He had one eye on the black lab and another one on the chocolate girl.

    When his momma began to announce he was there, the black lab lunged at him.
    As the black lab was pulled back by his momma, the chocolate pup began to bark.
    He swirled around and barked back even louder.

    He's so loud, he thought they were all checking him out.
    He's so loud, the vet tech quickly escorted him into a room.


    Okay, enough of my version of "He's So Vain" But it was an entrance! No Hollywood star could have staged it better.

    Once we got in the examining room, he settled down. As the vet tech said to him, " When my momma tells me I talk too much, I tell her God gave me a voice and I like to use it. Zeb, I think you have the same philosophy, too."

    One of the vets came in- a female who is one of the owners and who has not had much experience with the Mess Pot. She was wonderful- very gentle. He just fell in love with her. He sat like a good boy and didn't even goose her. Turned out she used to show labs and now her children do the showing. She did find a tick- dead and not filled with much blood. We joked the Mess Pot had toxic blood that was a killer on ticks.

    His juvenile cateracts have not gotten worse- that was good news. His weight was fine. All bloodwork was good; stool samples were fine. He has a little bit of an ear infection beginning, so he has to have that treated. He did show his red rocket when she was checking his heart and pulse.

    When he had to go in the back to get all the shots and bloodwork completed, I could hear him bark and bark. I guess that was his cry for help, " Momma, help me! They are sticking things into me! Help me!"

    While he was in the back, I got Zoe out of the car to get her nails clipped. They just love her. They told me she sat there with her tail between her legs like she was lamenting about the shape of her 'dreadful nails' while they clipped her nails . As I walked her out, this big burly man who was holding a two ounce puppy- looked like a chihuahua- exclaimed, " How many dogs do you have ?" I laughed and said just two.

    As Zeb and I finally left, I could hear all the vet techs cooing, "Bye, Zeb, Bye, Zeb."

    Both then went with me while I ran errands. Both were exhausted and slept like babies, especially Zeb, after our visit. Yes, we have survived another eventful checkup!
