I showed her the letter but she didn’t seem interested. The last time she got a letter from him, she chewed on the corner. This time she just walked away.
Oh she tried HARD to hurt Dr. Pinney! She growled at the assistant Joanne the whole time she had taken her away to weigh her. Then we had to wait for him and when he came in and tried to listen to her heart, she growled and hissed at him and he turned the biting end toward me and said she needs to know that I’m going to get this done, and even a growler and scratcher and hisser still gets a good check up from me. And I’ve only been bitten 2x in 17 years, both by dogs! I told him he should knock on wood now.
So I scratched behind the ears on the biting end and he listened to her heart from behind that. Then I scratched ears while he felt around her bones and gave her two shots. Then he had a tongue depressor and wondered if we could look in her mouth. He went back to the biting end and poked her lips a little to see her teeth and then she opened wide to give a big hiss and he said, Well, that worked out well cos that’s all I needed to see! Then we went to put her back in the carrier and she went in head first and turned right around with claws out and hissing and tried to get him while he shut the door. He said he has been scratched shutting doors already……….
She was very impressive!
