That too was easy.
Annual medical time. Bob is too busy sniffing the floor tiles to notice we're at the vets . By the time he's lifted onto the examination table and had his shots it's too late to complain. After the check-up the vet says '' that was easy ". Bob heads out of the door into the safety of the car park at the speed of light. He'll be prepared the next time.
Sophie knows exactly what's going on. In the waiting room she howls as if she's auditioning for the lead role in Rigoletto .To everyone's surprise no sooner is she lifted on the table than she turns on her back and falls contentedly asleep. She snores. '' That too was easy " says the vet wishing all consultations were as straightforward .
The diagnosis ? Brother and sister both robustly healthy. That wonderful stage in a dogs life. And a dog owners life.
