A Heck of a Way to Get a Spa Day

Zzzz. zzzZZZ. ZZZ. z.

Zzzz. zzzZZZ. ZZZ. z.

You’re looking at a live picture of me. Right now. This very minute. I’m snoozing under the peep’s desk.

Whew. So maybe my trip to the dogtor earlier this week could be viewed as a spa day. After all, my nails were done. And my teeth were polished. And I spent the day with other pooches having procedures done. Were they getting Botox treatments? A little grooming? A massage?

No. They were there for all kinds of reasons. Getting fixed, having their teeth cleaned, getting stitched up from a boo-boo, taking medicine through their veins. All kinds of things.

IT WAS NO SPA DAY! I can assure you of that. I had needles poked in me, an IV in my little leg, a mask on for the gas, drugs to kill the pain, drugs to put me under…. it was all just too much!!!!!!!

So, now I’m resting. But you can be sure I’ve already had my ration, or two or three, of green beans for the day.

What You Learned Today:

  • A trip to the dogtor can be traumatic.
  • I love my dogtor.
  • Everybody there is very nice to me.
  • It’s still traumatic.
  • Glad I won’t have to see Dr. Elliott any time soon.
  • Well, unless I get into some kind of trouble.
  • I’ll try very hard NOT to get into trouble.

    Sounds like me…I dread seeing the quacks…lol

  2. Sounds to me like you deserve all the naps you can get Stuart……you had quite an un-spa-like spa day for sure!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  3. I agree with you, that was more the anti-spa day. But I’m sure the power of the green beans will help.

    I will never have ‘spa day’ envy again my friend. Shivers. That does not sound like a fun day to me. I’m so sorry and send you enormous hogs and manly snout kisses. XOXO – Bacon

  5. Misaki says:

    Oh stuart, you poor thing. Rest up and I’m sure you deserve a few more green beans for what you’ve been through xxx

  6. That sounds awful! I hope you recover soon. Maybe some extra treats would help you get over the trauma.

    Stuart-get some rest. I’ve had those days myself and I’d rather go to the groomer. Easy and Misaki have it right-green beans will help.When you’re better, you can still play it for all it’s worth-extra green beans are worth it.

    No way could that be considered a Spa Day! Have some more green beans.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Stuart, you look so nice and comfy in that fabulous, fit for a king doggie bed! Just relax and chill out with the Peeps close by – you’ll be back in the swing of things in a few days! I bet you aren’t even aware of the missing teefers!
