our visit to the vets and other things

Visit to Vets went OK Nin went in first and he was in there for a long time - half of which was waiting ...he does have a few problems which the vet is trying to sort out.. I sat in the car with Barney.

He did is usual 40 laps around his cage, a bark here a whine there. a wimper. then he settled down - for at least a minute.  He greeted every car that arrived, barked as is his wont, didn't get any return greetings though.

Most of the dogs that arrived were puppies.  The odd cat or two.  Some chappie came out of the surgery with a small gift  my first though was "wonder what he's got in there" Settled that it must be a prescription bag - was to small for a pet.

It amazing what you see sitting in a car outside a vets surgery.

Back to Barney - He's an odd little character he has what I call - Postmans Run - Cats Run - And The Hoover.

Postmans run - he hears the postmans van long before we do, he runs from room to room looking out of the window - when the van eventually arrives at our drive - it's upstairs he goes - he must get a better view from the upstairs windows. we had to put a letter box at the front of our drive, as when the postie put the letters through our letter box, they would be shredded if we didn't get there first. and he is much faster than us. once the van drives off  - because Barney has got rid of him he settles down.

Next is the cats Run - Just about the same as the Postmans run - but just confined to the back of the house. How he knows the cat is out there is beyond us.

Next but no means last is the hoover - where-ever you are in the house, just touch a Hoover, you don't need to move it - He's there, ready for battle - the Hoover Monster who dares to enter our house is fair game to him - we now find putting him in the car outside is much easier for us to work.

Back to the vet.  Lyn brought Nin out and took Barney in - he wasn't in there for 10 minutes.  Lyn came out looking Harassed - Barney looking very pleased with himself.  He hasn't got to go again vet very pleased with him - so alls well.  Ally

Hi Ally,  Glad all is well with Nin and Barney at the vets.  Had to laugh thinking of Barney doing 40 laps!  Our Jake is terrified of the hoover and runs and hides....the wimp that he is.....lol! :-)

Had to laugh because our Jess always attacks the hoover as well plus the lawn mower if he gets a chance. He has never learned even though we have tried everything, must be the noise.
