ObowmeowCare sucks

The Boo wagged his tail at the vet, but she stuck him in it just the same.

The Boo wagged his tail at the vet, but she stuck him in it just the same.

It was health care and then some today as Mister Boo, Field Marshal Turkish von Turkenstein (commander, 1st Feline Home Defense Regiment) and Miss Mia Sopaipilla traveled en masse to the vet for exams and injections.

Turk’ and Mia are not fans of the infernal combustion vehicle, and thus the Subaru rang with yowls of horror and threats of vengeance as we motored swiftly toward our tripartite appointment. Only the unflappable Mister Boo remained at peace (until the vet laid hands upon him, whereupon the mild-mannered little fella promptly transmogrified into the Hound of the Baskervilles).

Back at Chez Dog the cats rebounded quickly, but the Boo — having performed a four-mile walk before his harrowing experience at the hands of veterinary medicine — found himself in need of a power nap. And who can blame him?

I’m feeling a bit stuck myself, but you can’t sleep off a vet bill.

    Which reminds me of my favorite college basketball player, back in the ’80s: Baskerville Holmes. You know that guy’s parents were fans of great literature.

    I am impressed by Mr. Boo’s endurance. Four miles is a long way on those little legs. Duffy does 1.5 miles almost every day.

    Vet bill = oww. Yeah, Mr. Boo looks drained.

    You already answered my Sherlock question. Martin Freeman’s performance couldn’t happen without Cumberbatch, I know, but still, Freeman was extraordinary in the season three opener. I like how the Anderson character after years of humiliation by Sherlock had become completely unhinged in the intervening 2 years since Sherlock’s demise/disappearance.

    You are not kidding about the vet bills we just spent a ton to find our rather young dog who is highly active has spinal adhesions and elbow dysplasia with complications. It was a good sized bill and the ball is just starting down the hill. We need an orthopaedist, Laser therapy and since why go half way an acupuncturist. The acupuncturist for my dog costs five times what I pay my acupuncturist.

    Did they all ride in their crates to/fro the vet? Otherwise, if they were my/or sister’s pets, they would be helping me steer, and hanging off my ears! Yes, $196 for teeth care for my sister’s 2 spoiled schnauzers while dogsitting–that was a shock, but vet explained the reason for finding one dry molar tooth on the dog’s loveseat the day before!
