I usually get an afternoon appointment so I have time to exercise them in the morning and that way they will be calm when they get there (sometimes this works!). Also your pain tolerance is higher in the afternoon, did you know that?
We take a l-o-n-g walk to the park,
and they run and run,
until they get tired.
Then we walk home. Riley walks through a nearby puddle to cool off.
In the afternoon they're in the car and we're off to the vet.
They get their rabies shots which only takes about two minutes, and they still fuss and whine and try to head for the door. They do fine though.
We're home now and resting comfortably.
What an ordeal!
They were at the groomers the other day and had their nails clipped, had a bath, and it was also time for their monthly flea and tic medication. I think they just want to be left alone now.
I did manage to get some painting done, and I did a bit of yard work, but mostly today was a doggie day!
