Ultrasound

The momma forced me out of bed way too early this morning.  Then she refused to feed me my breakfast.  I thought this was all made up for by going for a car ride, only to find out we were heading to the vet.  I knew the momma's plan was to leave me there and go to work. 
Really?  You intend on leaving me here?
Alone?
 
So, I made my plea and ranted and raved until I got my way.
 
ARRROOOOO!!!!
YOU'RE NOT LEAVING ME HERE!!!
 
I even made my drool turn into foam and I danced and I pranced.  And when the vet came in, who, by the way wasn't Dr. Mike... it was a friend of Dr. Mike's.  NOT ok with me.  Anyway, when the vet came in, he said to the momma "Are you in a hurry? Corbin might be better off if you stay with him during the ultrasound.  I can go get set up and we can do it shortly if you can stay."
 
SCORE!!!!
 
How was the momma to say no?  So, she stayed.  We went into the back with Dr. Mike's friend, grabbed Dr. Mike on the way and I had my ultrasound.  The momma held me to make sure I stayed still and Dr. Mike kept petting me to keep me happy.  Dr. Farrell, Dr. Mike's friend, used his fancy wand to see through my furs to my heart.  Turns out, it's stronger than it was in May, but still weaker than they'd like to see it.  But, I'm strong enough to have my teethie surgery.  After Dr. Farrell took my heart pictures, I got to go home, eat my breakfasts and rest on the couch instead of staying at the Vets all day.
 
Who, me?  Mastermind a plan to make the momma late for work?
Never.
 
Teethie surgery is scheduled for Friday morning. 
Tomorrow I'll tell you what else Dr. Mike will be stealing from me besides two teethies!

  8. Hey Corbin! So glad your ultrasound had pretty good results! Not so good you need surgery and will lose 2 teeths but overall good. You take care of you AND your Momma. She has been through a lot and does not need you to add to the drama.
    Love you always

  14. He's stealing something else? What could it be?

    Way to manipulate your mom into staying - you even had Dr. Mike's friend in on your plan!

  15. How could your momma even THINK of leaving you there?!?! Momma's had to do that sometimes with Cinderella, but it was always only when they wouldn't LET her stay. (She had to stay for three whole DAYS for her heartworm treatment!) I can't imagine your momma would intentionally abandon you!

  20. What a clever chap you are. I will have to remember your technique should I find myself in a similar situation. Good luck with the old tooth pull.

  21. Glad things went well at the vet. I had one of those cardiac ultrasound tests a few weeks ago. They are not so sure about me having my teeth cleaned ...basically, they think it is risky for me either way - putting me under is risky, but not having my teeth cleaned and risking infection is also risky. My assistant is pretty much going crazy trying to figure out what to do ...

    Your pal, Pip
