It's Beckett's world - you just live in it.

You guys all know that I love to go to the V-E-T. There are so many pretty vet techs to flirt with, a lot of interesting smells, and lots of attention for ME. Well, I was looking in the phone book the other day and realized just how many V-E-Ts there are in this town - and I had been to hardly ANY of them.

Sure, I go see my buddies at my regular vet at least twice a year, plus a few more times for boarding. And I did have that big adventure to the animal ER back in July. Oh, and I got to visit my V-E-T's father, who is also a V-E-T, that Saturday a few months back when I ate a whole bottle of fish oil capsules. But still! Imagine how many vet techs I have not yet flirted with!

Clearly, I needed to come up with a plan. So last Thursday evening, while Mom was vacuuming, I decided to go into convulsions. It worked! Mom scooped me up and took me to the car and went zooming out of our subdivision and across the street to another V-E-T, who is open until midnight. And they gave me lots of attention and some neurological tests and x-rays and stole some of my blood. They said that it didn't seem like I'd gotten into something toxic (my bloods were pretty much normal) and I wasn't showing any signs of having inflammation around my brain, but to be safe they treated me for both, keeping me overnight to give me fluids before sending me home with some steroids.

OMDOG it was such an adventure and I had so much fun but my Mom was maybe not having so much fun?!? And she has been talking on the phone lots with both V-E-Ts and they have been saying stuff about maybe a seize-her disorder?!? I don't know what that is about but I do know that MOM has said I am not ALLOWED to have any more emergencies and that she is onto my PLAN and I am going to have to get a J-O-B to start paying these BILLS. Sheesh, she is just no FUN!

Tell your Mom that Doggie Daycare would probably be cheaper, lots of workers to flirt with and other dogs too.

Just quit this medical stuff, Beckett, we all love you and don't want you convulsing or any other strange thing. Hear?

I am not so sure I like your plan!
I know there are many other good ways to flirt!
Paws crossed for you hoping everything is going to be ok!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Oh Beckett, we are not sure that was such a good plan. Now knock off that seizure stuff, and get back to being a good Beckett:) Your regular vet's place is good enough.

Although 'The Plan' initially had some merit, eventually I believe it would be impakhting your food and treats green papers -

PLUS, it would khause your mom to spend more green papers on those items our moms use to khalm themselves -

SO, I would rethink THIS plan!

By now, I know you're super intelligent, so I'm hoping, I'm hoping I say, that you're one awesome faker! You better be well, or else...

Fred said...

Oh, Beckett! I'm sure you scared your mom a bunch! Just go to those v-e-ts to get a b-a-t-h next time. Hope you are a-OK!

Joe Stains said...

oh boy sounded like that plan back fired! I hope you get to visit more techs, but maybe not in an emergency ok?

Ok, we get the flirting with the vet techs - we are great at that - but the seizure thing is a little extreme. Let's not do that again.

P.S. - Hope everything is ok.

Oh dear. Your mom is not very compassionate or understanding, is she? I expected more of her....

But to be fair, my sister (Fig) has epilepsy and my girl FREAKED OUT the first couple times she had seizures. So I guess it's pretty normal for humans.

Did foil your plan though, huh?
