So this morning we get to the vets at opening time for Mojos heartworm booster and the nurse who did it was his Puppy Preschool teacher.
It was like 2 old lovers greeting each other. All over each other and carrying on like real dags !! She couldnt believe how big he was now (45.3 kg's) and said he looked great.
So after the shenanigans she left to get his shot ready and then called us in. Time to get serious now. I tell him to sit and hold/cuddle/pat him so he dosnt move. Shot goes in, half the goop in, and then HYPO puppy kicks back in and decides to go crazy again.
Dad's hanging on with all his might for that 2 seconds needed for the rest to go in but Mojo brushes me off like i'm not even there. Top of syringe departs from the tube part and makes me whant to puke....(i HATE, HATE, HATE needles...i'm a big wuss). So after she pulls it out we calm him down for a another go with the help of a second nurse.....well that's just someone else to play with in his eyes so he goes BONKERS again and it's all a big game to the big puppy .
Finally we get a chance and the deeds done. I'm beaten up and the 3 of us are covered in hair and slobber. What a start to thier day !!!! But he still shook thier hands, sat down for his treats and gave them both cuddles afterwards. LOL.
I love having a friendly dog but this morning it was over the top and a pain in the but (and pain in the neck for Mojo).
If that was me getting an injection and a syringe snapped like that i think i would have flaked it.
Might go in early next visit so he can say hello to everyone then settle down a bit before his turn. Definently need a diffrent plan of attack.
Anyone else got any interesting, funny or embarrasing vet visit stories ??
