Before we get to the BIG EVENT of the day, my faithful, loyal, followers have been asking me to give an example of “piggies up.” I checked with My Dad and signed a consent form (just kidding) to have my photo taken while demonstrating “piggies up.”
Pretty simple, straightforward…almost a trick (a simple trick for a BC). My Dad says, “Piggies up,” I place my front paws on whatever object I need help with, and My Dad places both arms (very gently) under my tummy and caboose, and lifts me gently. Easy stuff.
But like I said earlier, during a very chatty moment, the Scion is back. My Dad took me to the vet to get my Adequan injection. The waiting room was empty, no stories about bulging eyes, drooling, or dogs thinking of biting me. We were in and out pretty quickly…almost… My Dad came up with this really poor idea to get my nails clipped. Every dog I have chatted with says that they DO NOT like to have their claws trimmed or their feet touched. Our feet are VERY important – that is how we get around. I did NOT like it, I was struggling with the two vet techs, but we got through it. Gives me the shudders…
Our next mission was a drive to the Glenview Post Office…check the P.O. Box. Now for the good part! My Dad, bless his human heart, intercepted a FedEx delivery truck. I really let the FedEx guy have it…”I SEE YOU…YOU ARE NOT FOOLING ANYBODY…I SEE YOU…I SEE YOU…I SEE YOU.” Surprisingly, My Dad was ready with his Sony 20 megapixel camera and documented this encounter.
We stopped at the bank and the car wash after the FedEx intercept. My Dad took me inside the car wash…no one was interested in petting me…sigh.
I am feeling wonderful about getting my car back.
