Monday was supposed to be a big surprise for us. Of course Mom knew what was happening but she wasn’t going to tell us.
Mom had the day off from work but she got up just as early so I figured she had something in store. Next thing I knew she had picked me up and whisked me out into the rain. I wasn’t happy about that. Know where she took me???? She took me to the Doctor Man’s house!!!! Mom said I behaved like a real gentleman and they all loved me. The Doctor Man said that I was doing good with my weight. I now weigh 18 pounds so I’ve lost some of my extra poundage. All in all it was a great visit. However, I had to tell Steinbeck about it.
Mom and I got home and she said she was going to have to go see her doctor and that she would be back in a little while.
Mom said her Doctor Lady wanted to check and see if she had enough Halloween Goblins in her blood so she could go off one of her meds.
Steinbeck, that’s hemoglobin and Mom’s numbers were great. While Mom was gone Steinbeck and I had a little chat. I told him he was in for a surprise but it wasn’t a good one. Yep, I blabbed about going to the Doctor’s house.
When I found out that, I knew I had to do something. I hid. I heard Mom calling the Doctor’s house and telling them she couldn’t find me so she had to change the appointment. She did that about four times and the last time she called to say she couldn’t find me, they told her that their power was out so there was no need for me to go to the Doctor’s House!!!!
Little did he know…….
Mom came home from work tonight and fed us and talked to us. I thought she was going to settle down and watch a movie so I jumped up in my bed and settled down to watch it with her. Next thing I knew she had picked me up and she and her brother put me in my traveling box. There was no escaping this time. I sang the song of my people loud and clear going out the door, riding to the doctor’s house, and when we entered the doctor’s house. Inside the one set of doors it really echos nice so I did a great operatic solo.
Why did you have to put me in the traveling box tonight?
Doctor Lady, I know I’m handsome but I’m not falling for you patting my head.
Wait a minute, Doctor Lady…..my lips don’t turn that way!
I don’t care what you say. I am NOT getting on that scale again. You told me I was a little chunky. I’m a handsome dude and not a chunky dude.
Are there treats in that Good Kitty jar?
See Doctor Lady, that’s all muscle you’re feeling. Hemingway is the chubby one.
I’m going to close my eyes and when I wake up this will have all been a bad dream.
The Mom Speaks: All of us saw our doctors this week and all of us were pronounced healthy. Steinbeck gets so stressed when it’s time to go to the vet. He always manages to figure out what I’m up to. Hemingway may complain a little, but once he’s there he just sits on the chair next to me and watches all the people and fur people. The staff at the “Doctor’s House” love these two and they know all about their blog. By the way, Steinbeck quickly recovered and is his normal self again…..and still thinks he’s smarter than me.
