Lacie, Nursing Student

Hi Every Dog, Kitty and Hamsterrier!

I've been in nurse's training now for several months. My girlfriend, Asta, showed me some more advanced skills beyond pillow fluffing and temperature taking!! I have my stethoscope now and can take blood pressures and listen to hearts and lungs! Asta is the best teacher. Her clinical course is very popular and is hard to get into!

She's very strict and requires we wash our paws ALL the time and wear our student ID! I thought the picture is a good likeness.
I'm on my way over to nurse Jackson who has been having nasty tests done. I hope, as a student, I'm up to this....pawsonally, I'm hoping Asta comes to. She can start an IV from half way across the room. I haven't even given a shot yet. Not till next year.
I'm anxious to check on Dunstan, one of Jackson's other wheeled stuffies. Seymour has been staying with us. Well, he's like with Lola all the time. Sniff.

I know everyone is thinking of Jackson and sending good vibes in his direction. Keep ur paws crossed for him and for me so I don't screw anything up!!!

You are so noble!! Please take good care of Jackson. He's our buddy. Give him our best wishes and lots of get well kisses.

What Asta are you talking about? My kousin Asta? I didn't know she was a nursing instructor. Wow!! What else has she been hiding from me?

Or do you mean Asta Marie, the multimillionaire?

Good luck on your trip, and say Hello to Dunstan, not that it matters. He's as stiff as a board.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Asta said...

You and Asta must be the ultimate nursing pair! Every doggie would be so lucky to have you two care for them. It's so nice that you are so concerned or Jackson, I've been crossing my paws for him each and every day. Keep up the good healing work.

Your pal,

we are very sure that you are doing a pawseome job as a nurse, especially with Asta's help. we are all pulling for Jackson and hoping for the very best.

Jackson said...

Hey Lacie, I'm looking forward to testing out your nursing skills later. Please warm the stethoscope before use, especially if you put it near my nekkid undercarriage! I'm sure Asta will show you the ropes! J x

Stanley said...


You look like a nurse already! Guess Asta's course really IS advanced!

Be sure to take care of yourself while you take care of Jackson. You don't want to catch a cold or anything!

Goober love & admiration,

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

What a gal you are Lacie. I know exactly who to call if I need some bedside Mom would pass out if she had to give me an IV.


Gus said...

You are so cute in your scrubs, and that is an excellent likeness on your id.

I'm sure seeing your smiling face will make Jackson feel a bit better. And no way do I want to watch Asta start an IV from halfway across the room. That is SCAREY

Lacie, this is a very sweet post. I am sure Jackson appreciates your care. :)

Christmas is very nice, Lacie! You'll enjoy it! Oh, snow is not bad. I think you'll like it as well. Don't worry. it's not like Thunder. :)

Momo xoxo

That is such a cute outfit you have on Lacie. Well, nursing is such a "serious occupation" I shouldn't say it is cute but I can't help it.

I'm sure all your "pawtient" will recover quickly in your good paws!
