To Your Health!
It's time for my annual physical. I'm going to get to stand on the scale and show Mom I'm not gaining weight. Then Dr. Nancy will look in my eyes and ears with that funny light. She said I'm also going to have a test. I don't think it is the kind I can study for. It's a test to check for heartworm and other nasty things that could make me sick.
Then, if all the tests come back saying I'm good to go, I will have to get some shots. I don't mind shots but my Mom wonders sometimes if I get too many shots. We have to have rabies shots. It's the law.
I also get a Lyme shot cuz, even though this year hasn't been bad, we have those nasty ticks near our house. My Mom and one of the dogs who lived here before both got Lyme disease so we are very careful. We do buggy checks whenever we walk in the woods and when we work in the yard and I get my FrontLine every month.
Mom says she would prefer not to put chemicals on me but until she can find something that works just as good and is easy to use, we need to. If you know a better way, we'd be interested.
I'm looking forward to my having my check up because everyone at the office is so nice and they all tell me how good I am. Visiting the doctor when you're not sick is not so bad and regular check ups are very important to staying healthy.
If you haven't had a annual physical yet this year, make an appointment soon so you can stay healthy too.
P.S. Shameless self promotion. I'm very excited that one of my Dog Gone It! gift baskets is going to go to another country.
