No Good Deed

This is what I did for four hours straight because of what happened in the morning . . . you might be thinking that I was so worn out from taking care of my mom for the past two weeks. Well you would be wrong. It is because that the mom is feeling better that my day didn't start out too good.

My day started out like any other day which is the way I like things . . . then I noticed this strange thing being brought in from the garage and knew right away that things were going to take a change for the worse . . . before I could run an hide the mom had me in the thing and was talking about my yearly check up with the vet . . . right away I started thinking how ungrateful she was to do this to me after all of the good care and attention I had given her since she was ill. &*&^%$# no good deed goes unpunished.

Things at the vet went pretty smoothly and I must say I got an A+ on my report. The vet was happy with my weight and said that I was even a little lighter than last year and that was a good thing. I got two shots, which I was a good girl when they gave them to me, then they left the room with me so they could trim my nails and also . . . well . . . . clean out my ears. I'm not saying if I was good or bad when they did this because I want to keep the mom guessing. I pulled a fast one on the mom, though, when it was time for us to leave. After the vet and assistant left the room it was just the mom and me so I decided that is was time to show her who was the boss. I wouldn't get into the carrier. I put all of my paws out and legs and hung onto anything I could reach. I was quiet proud of myself as I overpowered mom and she had to admit defeat. She held me tightly and opened the door of the room we were in and asked if someone could help her get me into the carrier. To our surprise the vet came into help her. I must say I really wish that I had a recorder because I gave the two of them a run for the money. After letting them struggle for awhile I decided that if I were every to get home I should get into the carrier, which I did. Soon I knew I would get some well deserved rest.

The really good news of the day was that the mom felt so bad about the vet visit she gave me treats when we arrived back at the house, spoiled me all day long, and I pretty much napped all afternoon only to have some gentle pats from mom when she would walk by me.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that to prove that I am able to get even I didn't . . . well . . . leave something in the litter box that mom had to take in to the vet so now the mom has to go back when I decide that I will cooperate. Ha, ha to her.

The really great news is that I don't have to worry about another check up until next year. Keep your eyes out and if you see the carrier coming into your living space, RUN!

Awww Gracie, what a traumatic morning for you. But, you know, the mumster is only looking after you too. We are glad everything went well and you got some treats and a lovely long nap in the afternoon. Don't even give it another thought until next year :)xx

Too late for us, Gracie - my human took Boodie and me in for check-ups earlier this week! In fact, I blogged about my visit today too!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Too late for Nicki too--he had to go yesterday! You can hear his warrior song on our post today--just don't turn the volume up too loud. Seriously.

But we're proud of you, Gracie, for giving them a good run for their money and being uncooperative about getting back in the PTU!

We're glad for your A+ report, though!

Oh Gracie! If only the flashy beast video recording had been available to capture your civil disobedience.

We are all behind you one hundred percent! No vet visit should go unpunished, believe me!

Have a good weekend!

The only missing information about your vet report Gracie was did you manage to leave a pee on the table - we always do so near the edge so it drips on their feet too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Mommy and Daddy has a horrid time getting me in my PTU. But because we travels so much, they don't has to do it until we gets to the vets and everybody is so scratched by the time we leaves, me is usually just on my leash (we is leash trained). Kozmo don't has to go in the PTU at all. He LIKES our vet. Sometimes he goes with the dogs, just to visit!
He is strange.


V-E-T visits aren't fun but we're glad your visit went well. Great job on resisting the PTU!!!

Gracie you sound just like Mindy when she needs her vet visit. Once Mombean had to take one of boys instead because she put up a fight! We hopes you mombean is on the mend now and feeling better.

Hope you can use our comment box, we changed back to the old Blogger interface that allows this.

Nice revenge Gracie! We hate going to the vet too, but we don't fight the way you do - until now...

You certainly DID show everyone who is boss. MOL!

We are proud of your cattitude! MOL!

Glad you got a good report Gracie, but er you are suppose to refuse to get in the carrier while you are still at home, especially if there is no one there to help your Mom. Then the Mom has to call the vet and reschedule and if you are lucky she will eventually forgets about it. We have never been that lucky.
