Injections ~ Chip and Pin ~ and the Rabbits

 
Is it really a year since Nin had to have his injections I wasn't here a year ago ~ not doing a journal that is (but I was here of course) Lyn booked at the Vets and was told they were doing an offer on chip and pin being inserted to locate a dog if it went missing from home for £10 instead of £17
Well as Barney is what is best described as an escape artist she took them up on the offer ~ not for Nin though he knows when he is on to a good thing and never thinks the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.
But Barney is another kettle of fish ("another kettle of fish"~ where ever did that saying come from) reading it back it didn't make sense but I am sure I have heard that expression from somewhere ~ anyway we arrived at the Vets surgery and Lyn took Nin in first to have his injections ~ well Barney dos'n't  like to be separated from Nin and vocally announced to everyone he needed to be in the surgery with his mate ~ swivelling round in his cage trying to find a way out ~
Lyn wasn't gone too long and Nin settled down in his cage ~ Now it was Barneys turn ~ I looked at Lyn and wished her the best of Luck and she disappeared through the door ~ The Vet asked Lyn if Barney was a baby and Lyn said "Well he isn't to keen on injections" so the Vet said "There would probably be a bit of a squeal" and went ahead with insering the Chip ~ Lyn braced herself ready to keep Barney under control ~ but Barney never battered an eyelid ~ No squeal not even a squeak ~ the Vet then ran a little machine over where the chip had been inserted and on screen it came up with Barneys Name and address   ~  he now  has a smart little tag on his collar saying he has been chipped ~
At least one of those little rabbits has taken up residence in the garden ~ I took a picture of him sitting in the middle of the lawn last night but it is so dark you can hardly see him ~ then this morning I took a couple more of him ~ and noted he hopped into the woodpile which is surrounded by fencing so he will be safe from the boys in there  ~ don't really know how many of them may be living in there ~ the whole family may be for all I know ~ I would rather have them there than Ratty's ~

The chips are a good idea. My dogs have them. we even get discounts of our pet insurance for it. The boys sound like they are best friends.

My dogs hate to be seperated too... It's nice to have a pair because they are never lonesome that way. I have to take mine to the groomers in a week or so and they always go into the same cage while waiting..... just little chihuahuas so they fit. Hope you are having a nice sunny day, Sandra

Well done Barney for being brave at the vets! They sound such a close couple. I hope the rabbits keep out of Nin and Barney's way! Jeannette xx

I think that is a great idea for the dogs as it so easy for them to escape.  Glad Barney was such a brave boy.  You should see the picture I took for you today will forward it later.  Love Joan.

Hi Ally,

Wasn`t Barney a good boy!  Give him a pat from me for being brave at the vet`s.  Our vet had that offer when we had Hannah and she didn`t make a murmur either, but then again she was very brave, unlike poor Jake...lol!  Have you ever put fish in a kettle?  I must admit I`d never given it a thought before but it is strange saying isn`t it? :o)

oh well done Barney! im not sure where that saying another kettle of fish comes from. . .we have so many sayings and I never cotton on !!

I have heard of those chips but never seen them used. Isn't modern technology something? That Nin is one smart cookie to know a good thing and stay there. Paula

    Our pets are just like our kids.  When we think we know how they are going to react, they do just the opposite.  I think they like to make liars of us ! lol   Glad to hear that it went well for you.  Tina

Barney and Nin seem quite well behaved considering they were at the vets. I used to take Reet's dog years ago and as soon as she'd twigged we were at the vets I couldn't budge her, lol. I had to pick her up and carry her and she was a big collie!
