My Wound and Vet Scruffy

Oh Poor's Scruffy....actually I had a FABBERS visit to the Vettie this morning!!! I've been pawing at my long snoot trying to get Mumsie to notice that I HAVE A HOLE IN MY LIP but it took Miss Nursie forever to figure out where my booboo was. Just cuz I can't talk...or that I'd snap everytime she'd try to Bruvver looks last night and bingo, I'm at the vettie this morning....sorry...we shoulda taken the camera....
Cuz this Boston Terrier comes into the waiting room as I'm on the scale and Mumsie's tryin' to figure out how I gained a pound...(though that's the same scale that weighed Stan at 4 lbs so I don't have a lotta faith in it!) I totally thought it was TANNER, so I went over, but it was this PSYCHO BOSTON B&^%$, with a total attitude. Harumph...I carried on so LOUDLY that it suddenly it was our turn...note to self...if you're waiting too long...PICK A FIGHT.
The vettie had Mumsie hold me and pull my beard back and well, I tried to bite her. Then I tried to bite the Vettie. She (the Vettie) decided to take me to the dreaded "BACK ROOM" know the place where they torture you and steal your blood without your Peeps around?? clean my "wound" and um SHAVE A CHUNK OF MY BEARD OFF. Mumsie said NO beard shaving...(she remembers what Stanley looked like after a session with their razor) but she handed me over to face my BACKROOM fate alone....

I was back in under ten seconds. Vettie said she saw the "wound" was small and GET THIS....
Talk about being able to MAN IP U LATE the vettie staff!!!!
Any dogs needing snarling/snappie lessons just let me know.
Barkin' with ATTITUDE...


Gus said...

Please send hints immediately. My last visit was horrible!

Do not send Lacie. Do not need nursie.

Oh Scruffy,
Way to go man, you showed that vettie, hehehehe! We actually luv our vet. He's the bestest. They pretty much let us have the run of the place when there aren't many dogs there, we go from room to room telling all of the girls hi. Hehehe, Ruby has to go there tomorrow for her shots. Errrr, hope you're not going to get a tummy ache from eating all of those mini-cakes at the pawty today. How many did you have, like 48??? hehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Oh at first we thought you had your back leg shaved....we should learn to look more closely.
So you're ok then? Did the vet actually do anything matie?
Hmmm, maybe that hot little number in the blue nurses outfit should check it out. Heheheh !

Well, Scruff, we're glad they didn't upset you any further... but did they HELP? We mean, really. You were snapping and snarling cuz it hurts! Right? That little wound, the hole in your lip came from something, somewhere. We can think of three possibilities ... you bit yourself, somebody or something bit you, or you've been hanging out with the punks and messed with piercing your lip. If that was the case, we wish we'd at least seen the lip ring before ya took it out. Whatever... we hope it's healing well. And fast. Your reliable nurse (and we're not talking Lacie) needs to know you're in tip top shape here in the next few days.

In the meantime, we'll remember the "no beard shaving" command. Not that we're planning on needing it...

Heal fast.
Thanks for the tips.
Jake (and Fergi - who knows the Back Room much better than I) xxoo

(So how cool WAS the lip ring? Did it hurt?)

TwoSpecialWires said...

Lacie. I think you look absolutely adorable in your new nurse's uniform. The scrubs blue is your color and the fit is sooo much more becoming than the baggy pants they wear at my vettie's office. You'll make the patients feel better just by walkin' in the room. But that expression I don't quite understand. Are you kindly saying, "Open up and say 'ahhhhh'"? Somehow I don't think so. But you can still be my nurse whenever I have a need. (I'll just try my best to stay healthy.)

Admiringly yours,

{Please tell Stan "hello." I don't mean to ignore or neglect him.)

Mango said...

Ya know, Scruffer, you could try a different approach. I mean I do my smoochie sad face and totally get tons of foodables and my own private waiting room. Just a thought. If that isn't your style, then try bringing your blow torch next time. That'll give them something to think about.

Hi Scruffy,

You were such a hero at the vettie's. I'm so proud of you, my dear. I so hope that you are feeling better.

I love that sexy pic of you. What a pose! My heart is all a-flutter. Sigh...

Will I be seeing you again soon? We haven't been to a football game in a while. I'm ready when you are.

Lacie looks super in her nurse's outfit. And I agree that a bandana would be the perfect accessory.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Joe Stains said...

Dang dude, you need to teach some of that scrapper attitude to our Steelers Defense, what is their problem?!?! Anyway, sorry you had to meet up with a grumpy BT, Mom grew up with one in her neighborhood too.

I hope your lip feels better soon.

MAX said...

Hey Scruffy
You are the Master of
"How to win friends and influence people!"...hehehe...
(A really well written post...we had a good laugh!)
Hope you get better soon.
Love to Mom

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Scruffy we must applaud your Terrier attitude at the V.E.T. Well done.

We are just wondering how you managed to get a hole in your lip! Lacie wasn't experimenting with lip piercings was she?

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Jake of Florida said...

We must be wimps or something because when we go visit our vet -- who also runs our "animal camp for those long stayovers -- we love him and we, as Mom says, just stand there looking like dogs no matter what he does.

Actually, we've never ever tried to bite anyone -- except each other (!)

Wirey love -- hope the "wound" heals itself.

Oh, well, this is the whippets' servant. They all passed out at the mere notion of snapping at a human.

Since I'm here and you asked, I'm not working yet. ARRRGH! the job at the hospital turned out not to be 7 a to 7 p as promised, but the other way around. I'm too old to make life and death decisions at 3:30 a.m.
So, after all that, I'm sending out resume's like crazy. Sigh.

No more snapping at humans!!!

Hollie and Janie said...

I'm so glad you are ok! I actually am pretty good at acting pitiful and whining and screeching in pain before ANYONE or ANYTHING touches me! hehehe Well done, my friend!

Anonymous said...

Blue is def your color! U r so smart and if i get sick again i will call upon u to help me heal with all your skills!

Tucker said...

Sorry to hear about your booboo. Hey I've got a good tip that I got away with last week when the vet was finished shaving my toe to see what was wrong. Well Mamma thought since I'm half blind and walking on three paws it'd be safe to set me down on the floor without a leash. HAH did I ever fool everyone... went running right out the back door, around the receptionist desk and up by the bags of food in the front office! See, ya gotta just fake like you're an old fool (or a young innocent one!)


Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Hi Scruff! Glad you didn't have to get shaved, stitched or swabbed. What was the wound from? Playing bitie face?

Hootie ALWAYS has some sort of scab on his head, cheek or under his chin...from our rough play times. It happens all the time. I'm usually ladylike, but he does bring out the beast in me & I have to show him that I'm the boss here!!
Airekisses, BabyRD

Scruffy, Hope you are feeling better now. Hugs, Hootie

Sophie Brador said...

Scruff! I am impressed. I had no idea I could kick up a fuss at the vet's. I might have to try that. Or maybe I can get my brother to try it, although I'm not sure how convincing he would be.

A bit of 'tude never harms. We hope you're all healed up now.
