Annual checkup

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!

I had part 2 of my annual checkup at the vet's office today (Mom took me yesterday for part of my shots and then the other part was today so I didn't puke all over like I did last year when I got them all at once). Here's me yawning in the car because we had to be there at the CRACK OF NINE! Oy!

I got right into a room to wait for Dr. Graves...
OK, mom...tell me again...HOW many shots do I get today?

Are you SURE it's only two?
You better not be messing with'll be sorry!

Here I am with Dr. Graves after he gave me my 2 shots (mom was telling the truth after all!)
He is SUCH a nice vet! He even told me that he would take me home with him in a heartbeat! I don't think mom would like that much, but it's nice to know I have options in case she quits being generous with the eats!

Now THIS is where things get weird....
There is another nice vet that works with Dr. Graves named Dr. Boucher. She came in to say HI to me and asked if I'd like to see her BIRD named Joey!
Normally I yell at the birds outside and chase them out of the yard...but mom told me that I had to be nice to this bird.

Maybe if I don't look at will be ok......

Nope...not looking!!!! You can't seeeeeeee me!

Ok...I don't want to be rude to Dr. I stole a TINY peek at Joey (just to be polite of course)

GAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!! I think that bird was looking at me!!! I guess I need to start being nice to his relatives outside in the yard!

Other than that...I have a CLEAN bill of health (and NO bird flu! hahahaha!)

Stacy/Brutus said...

Salinger your face is priceless. Mom still remembers what your Mom said about's as if someone just told you bad news! Congrats on the bill of health and getting outa there with no bird flu!

Hank said...

Sal, buddy! How the heck are ya ever gonna go quail huntin' with me if yer scared o' birds???

PS from mom......Sal, you are SO funny! I love your tragic little face!!!

Stubby said...

Salinger dude - Thanks goodness you don't have bird flu. We have so many birds in our backyard but I stay away from them especially after what happened to Mom the other day. She was out hiking and she got dive bombed by a red-winged blackbird. He hit her square in the head and she took off running - yikes! Those birdies don't like pugs or people.

Glad you got a clean bill S-Dog!! Loved the look on your face while the doc was trying to introduce you to her bird. Now that you've meet a bird, you might just have to be nicer to the ones in the yard!

Salinger....I LOVE your crazy eyes in those photos! You're the cutest!

We are glad you are good to go for another year, Salinger. Your vet is very intelligent, wanting to take you home with him. I think you would miss Holden, though. I know I would miss mom too much to leave her and go with my vet (who thinks I am perfect.)

Hey Salinger,
You look completely terrified of that bird. But I don't blame ya, they got super creepy eyes ...

Salinger, your face says EVERYTHING! I am so used to going to the vet that for me it is like blah!

Charlie said...

I'm glad you were nice to Dr. Boucher, Salinger! She came to visit me in Oregon last year, and I like her a lot!!
