So... Last night I had to go visit Mr. Dr. Mike, DMV.  Just my yearly check up and I had to get a shot. ICK. 
Please... I don't want to be here!
But Mr. Dr. Mike, DMV said I look great!  And I'm very handsome - I made sure he noted that one in my chart.  That's very important information.

Mom talked to him about my tail... I split it open sometimes when I get super happy and wag it really hard... Mr. Dr. Mike, DMV said he might have to chop it off some day.  EEEKKK!!  I swear, Mom.... I won't wag it hard ever again!

Poor, poor pittyful me.


  1. ouchies!

    what does that mean - they amputate?

  2. I just had my yearly too dude! And I had to get 2 shots- the worst! Let's play soon- snow's coming!!!

  3. I am glad that you had a good visit Corbin!! I hope the vet doesn't chop you tail off!!

  4. Chop it off!! Oh no, stop wagging, buddy! We don't want you to lose your tail.

    Your pal, Pip

  5. Mine wasn't chopped off, it's just little, like a rose bud! But I can assure you, not having a tail really isnt as bad as it sounds!

  6. OUCH!!!! Poooor pittyful pup!

  7. Oh, I just had to go to the V.E.T. a coupla weeks ago, too. I HATES going there. I'm sorry bouts your Happy Tail but I'm just not sure you won't ever wag it hard again. You're just a happy guy, Corbin. You can't help it!

    I'm glad everything else was okay and that he noticed how handsome you are and put it on your chart.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  8. Dude. Tails are over rated. Just sayin'...

  9. aww, look at his face! i totally laughed--i'm sorry, corbin. :-/

  10. I never realized how dangerous happy tail could be. But we couldn't imagine you anything less than happy!

  11. Oh dear Corbin. Happy tail can be quite the ordeal. I'm positive it won't hurt your handsome points though. Heck, you could even brag about your war wounds then.
    Your look says it all!


  12. Oh Corbin, you don't look happy. Hope your Vet gave you some yummy treats. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  13. Oh, that's wonderful vet check-up news, Corbin! But the tail thing...ouch, just stop wagging it so happily & hard! Maybe smile more instead! My mother had a Poodle whose tail we never "shortened" per breed standards. My Mom always called it "the stick!" Princie would whack it into the wall, chairs, your leg, because he was always wagging it! Luckily for him, he never split it open though. :-( Like I said, less wagging - more smiling and keep the tail!!! PS - or some bubble wrap?!

  14. Oh no, not your wagger! But rest assured you can wag just as hard with a shorty....Rotties do it all the time! But hopefully it won't come to that....

  15. Aiiiiiiieeeee OUCH... a SHOT!!
    I think all Dawgtors are kinda CHOP em Off Happy if you ask me... Just ANOTHER reason to STAY FAR away from them.
    Just tell your mom you want her to make a
    Tail Cozy fur you to wear when exciting thingys are gonna be going on... BUTT tell her NOT PINK or PURPLE.. a nice MANLY RED or BLUE would be fine though.

  16. Maybe you should duct tape your tail to your side, Corbin. We don't want to hear that your vet hacked it off! YIKES!

    Love ya lots

  17. Oh noes, you has a bad case of the Happy Tail? Mom always say if'n CSI come in our house with that loominol stuffs, our house would lite up like a Chrissmuss tree from all the Happy Tail bludspatter. Not from any of us but from fosters wot woz here afore. Mom used to tape foam pipe insulation around the tip of the tail fur cushuning but sumtimes it would fly off and SPLAT! Bluds all ofur again.

  18. Corbin!

    Shawnee is right you do has a happy tail! :) Paws is crossed dat you don't have to gets it cut off by Dr. MIke...yikes!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  19. Maybe you should wrap your tail in duck tape!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra, Bella & Roxy

  20. Easy for Dr. Mike to say! Wonder what he'd think if you just chomped on his behind one day?? Let him think about that for a minute or two!!

  21. Corbin - We have a solution (maybe not a great solution, but a solution nonetheless) - how about a foam tube? You know, like that stuff at Home Depot or something. Really, dude, we're not kidding! Hope you get to keep your whole tail!

  22. Hey Corbin!
    Wow, the dogtor is the worst. Ptthththt. I can't believe your peep would actually let that horrible vet cut your wagger off. Wag till it bleeds?!? I never did that, maybe I'm slacking. Hmmmmm I may have to try harder, but not hard enough to whack it off. Surely they wouldn't!!!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  23. Yup we also struggle with happy tail here :(

    Stop on by for a visit

  24. Oh no, they might chop off your tail? EEK! Tuck it my friend, tuck it!

  25. Diagnosis 'Handsome', that's the main thing :D


  26. Oh no! That's a shame about your tail! I've seen a number of dogs with happy tail though - some ended up with a nub of a tail and others didn't. Either way though they still ended up happy dogs :)

  27. I'm glad you're doing so well and that the vet notated just how handsome you are.

    Eek! I hope they don't have to chop your tail!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Corbin!

  28. .,glad that you're good.,but to chop your tail??? Oh no, that really but don't worry its for your sake.
