Mom said we were going on a field trip tonight after work and I got really excited. It promised to be even more exciting ‘cuz Shakespeare wasn’t included. When it came time to get into the car, I must admit I got a little scared. I kept talking and Mom kept petting me and telling me it was going to be fine. She didn’t tell me where I was going but I sure found out!!!
Before long she pulled into a parking lot and turned the engine off. Then she picked me up (not an easy task) and started to carry me into this building. Wait a minute!!!! I know that building! That’s where the doctor man lives so this can’t be a good thing. I tried to remain calm and hoped that if I shut my eyes nobody would see me.
This is my “I’m not happy” look. Mom said she hasn’t seen this look before. Well, she’s seen it now and she better pay attention!
I thought if I hid in the corner nobody would find me.
I got the scale figured out. I discovered if I put one foot off the scale I wouldn’t weigh as much. Stupid humans figured out what I was doing!
This is a picture of me and the doc. He’s really a good guy in spite of the fact that he told me I had to start working out on a treadmill. He did keep telling me that I was handsome and he thought I was really neat. I guess I’ll have to listen to what he says and try to lose a little weight. I’m just a little over 19 pounds but he says that is too much. Mom said she would make me chase the laser light more often.
Here I am at the end of my visit. I was wondering if those treats were for me but the people at the doctor’s office said those were treats for dogs. Well, maybe they would let me bring some home for my friend Champ who lives next door. He’s a dog. They also said that I should be the clinic mascot ‘cuz I was so calm. I didn’t care if other fur people came in to see the docs. I was all done and I knew I would be going home. The only problem was that Mom and the other people were talking about me getting a job to pay for seeing the doctor man. Well, if Mom didn’t take me to see him then she wouldn’t have to worry about paying him. I guess it’s all her fault.
I’m going to take a nap now. Maybe I should have Mom get the laser light out first so I can get some exercise. No……I think I’ll take a nap first.

dear Hemingway, exercise is good for you. Don’t eat too much, my dear Schrodinger died because of kidney failure, he was too fat ;(
Mom has me doing more exercise now. When I go outside I love to run so she has me running in the house, too. The doctor man is keeping close tabs on me. I keep telling them I’m part black lab so I am naturally big but they don’t believe me. hahahahahaha
So, other than being overweight, did you get a good report?
I hope you have a better day today!
Donna……..The doctor man says I’m very handsome and very nice. He said I am quite healthy. I think there was something wrong with the scales. You know how humans are always messing with numbers. Besides, who knows the difference between a fur person pound and a human pound? I think there needs to be more investigating done.
