Here at the shore I have a beautiful green (virid) world. Usually a fun place to swim and play.
However, there was another “v” in my life. One that has ruined my life! Anyone want to rescue me? Anyone?
You guessed it! The VET!!! (veterinarian).
No, that photo is not the vet or even my Human Papa. The photo is of a fisherman up in our canal by the boat dock. I’m busy checkin’ him out; part of my job, you know.
As my followers know, my Human is very quick to rush me to the vet when she doesn’t think I’m feelin’ quite like myself.
My eyes were still botherin’ me, so we returned to the vet. The vet assured my Humans that the small mole or growth wasn’t what was botherin’ me.
It was awful! They stuck a little paper in my eye and held it closed for an eternity…an entire minute! Then they repeated the test on the other eye.
Of course there was the requisite thermometer and check and cleaning of my butt.
But I haven’t gotten to the worst part! Despite my allergy shots my belly was breaking out again. But that isn’t all…there is the perpetual scale!
I was so rambunctious when I got on the scale, even though the reading stopped at 99, the tech read the highest reading of 103. My Human Papa didn’t think that was correct because I was sitting at 99 and moving at the higher weight. I’ve weighed in between 99 and 100 since I was 24 months, no matter how much exercise I get.
I was already on a diet and my rations had been cut, but the vet changed my food and cut my ration even more!
But that isn’t the worst of it! Because of my rash I’m not allowed in the water! NO SWIMMING!!! It’s bad enough when the alligators start hangin’ around, but now! Just when the water is deep enough I could actually do dock diving!
So folks, my eyes aren’t making enough tears. I get salve 4 times a day in my eyes, plus extra allergy pills and all my fruit and stuff has been cut off. I get part of my dog food ration as a training treats and NOTHING extra!!!
I didn’t think that my Humans would really take what the vet said seriously, but they are sticking to everything like my life depends upon it!
Don’t you think this is unfair and just downright MEAN!!!? I’m a retriever! Water is part of a retriever’s life!!!
Don’t y’all think they are mistreating me? Do you think I should appeal to a rescue for help?
Y’all hurry back now!
