Hi everyone. This is Lilie the Westie.
Yes, again. Can I help it if I have more to say than the squeaky things in cages? No, I can't! Besides, I'm cute, and everyone loves me, so I'm sure you're pleased to get to hear from me again so soon, right?
I got to go to that vet place again last week. It was quite an adventure!
Just me and Daddy went, which meant we could walk, because me and Daddy can manage it, but Mummy can't walk that far. I had to wear my coat though, because it was really cold that day, even with the sun shining.
There were other animals there, and I wanted to be friends with them. But then this one dog - he was one of those little Bulldog types - got too bouncy even for me. I can bounce with the best of them. Or, I thought I could. But he was just too bouncy, and I got a bit scared. OK, a lot scared. So scared I managed to get out of my coat, harness, and collar, and was running loose around the vet in a panic. I know he was a bit smaller even than me, but that's totally not the point!
Anyway, I got caught, they helped me to calm down, Daddy put my clothes back on, and I was back to being my usual happy and friendly self again... Just in time for them to be ready to see me.
I got weighed, and I weigh 9 kilos (22.5 lbs). At least, as best as they could tell, since I was a bit too excited to stay still on the weighing machine for long enough for them to be totally certain. Then they trimmed my claws, which I'm glad about, because I don't do a good job of wearing them down, and they were getting long enough to annoy me.
After that, Daddy talked to them a bit. Something about groomers... Whatever they are... And the talk I hear each time I go there about something called "flea and worming treatment" (which usually results in me being given something to eat that tastes funny, and having some wet stuff put on the back of my neck). Then we walked home.
I was glad to get home, even though that vets is always an interesting place to visit. We'd left Mummy there, and I was pleased to see she hadn't gone and gotten herself lost or injured while unsupervised. Plus, I needed a nap by this point.
Apparently I'll get to go back again in a couple of months. I'm looking forward to it, though I hope that little Bulldog isn't there... He was just too bouncy, even by my standards!
Lots of licks,
