Dear Doodle Family,
This is me, Pedro...First I want to say thank you for all my birthday wishes and loving paws and cuddles that you sent me. I got them all and I felt very loved. I love you right back!
I also wanted to tell you about my experiences that I had on the day that was my birthday that Mommy took me to a new clinic to see a new doctor that is a new-rologist... At first I was very happy that Mommy didn't get up so early to go to her works. I like it when we stay and cuddle a little longer in the mornings. But then she got up and I got up and we got ready and she said we were going somewhere... so we got in my car and she put my seat belts on and I was happy because I love going for car rides. I like looking around, all those other cars, the trees, the sky, the big trucks... I thought maybe we were going to my Uncle Mateo's house in the apartments buildings because we seemed to go in that general direction, but Mommy kept going past the exit in the highways and we finally went around some other buildings and we arrived at this new place... it is called "Canada West Veterinary Specialist and Critical Care Hospital" and I thought "Uh, oh..."
So Mommy took me and I can tell when Mommy is nervous because she tries to make me feel betters and tries to be all happy, but I can tell that she is nervous and Doodles, she was really nervous so I got all nervous too and the moment we walked in the clinic, I wanted to get back out... I didn't want to meet any new friends, didn't want to go on the scales, didn't want to sit or stay... but some nice lady (they were all nice humans, I'll give you that) gave Mommy some papers to fill out and she went to sit down in one corner and wanted me to sit down and all I wanted was to go back to our car and go to Uncle Mateo's! So I told her... Many times, loud and not so loud and then more loud... but she wouldn't listen!
Then we went inside a small room and a nice lady that wanted to be my Friend and let me sniff her hand before touching me and I liked her, started eksaminin' me... she put a cold thing to listen to my heart, she opened my mouth to see my teeth and my gums, she petted my back and my chest and then -this was really weird!- she said she wanted to try to take my "bloods pressures" and she put this thing around my arm (I shook a paw, I thought she wanted to play!) and put a box next to it and push a buttons... then the thing around my arm started to inflate like a balloon and to feel tight around my paw and I didn't like that so I shook it off...! So weird. I don't know how she thought that would work! Mommy was telling me to be a good boy but I kept saying no and telling her that I wanted to go somewhere... not there, somewhere. She said that I was being very vocal and then the lady eksamin' me more and she put a cold stick up my bum (sorry lady Doodles) to check my temperatures... I didn't like that either but it was quick and Mommy kept petting me and saying that I was a good boy (she said I wasn't just a minute before that, I tell you, Mommy was very nervous!) and that she was sorry... Oh Mommy.
Two more doctors after her eksamin' me and shine a lights in my eyes and made me sit on a mat, and used a little hammer to tap my knees and then some strange scissors to draw lines on my back, then had Mommy take me outside and I thought they finally understood that I wanted to go somewhere and I could go get in our car but no such luck, they made me walk back and forths and up and down the sidewalks and one of them asked Mommy if I always walked like "that"... Ahm, yes I do. Mommy told them I have always "pranced" which I think is a good thing because Mommy and Daddy think it's cute and it's my style, I guess... Oh Doodle Family, this whole eksaminin' took SOOOO long... we were there for like a Doodle-eternity and I just WANTED TO GO. But Mommy still had to talk for a while with the New-rologist doctor and that took a while longer. They were talking about me, I could tell. Mommy was petting me and giving me cuddles so I sat quietly for a little while, but then I had to remind her again that we needed to go!!!
At the end, when Mommy was talking to the ladies at the desk before we left, I got so froostrated with her that I shook off my collar and leash (Mommy had taken me off my harness! yipee!) and I ran to the door to tell her ONE MORE TIME that I wanted TO GO! Mommy got so scared, but I wasn't going to run away, I just wanted to go to my car! So she came and grabbed me and put my harness and my collar back on and the leash, but she finally hurried up and we went to my car! FINALLY.
The good part was that we ended up going to Uncle Mateo's house to say hi to Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Mateo and because Mommy had to go to her works, the three of them took me in Uncle Mateo's van to my house and that was very nice because I took a nap on the ride home and Grandpa and Grandma gave me my birthday presents and told me how much they loved me and Uncle Mateo let me nap in his van and cuddled with me.
Oh Doodle Family, I know that I am a doctor sewgeon and that there are other doctors among us (Dr. Spencer BAD and others) but I never take sooooo long when I ekasmin' my stuffies... I just hope that Mommy and Daddy are calmer now that they had me see the New-rologist doctor, after all, I feel fine. I have lots of energy... and lots to say! All the time! Heehee
Loving paws to all,
