Solo Ride

One all important rule around Chez Herd – getting a solo ride in the Jeep with Hu-dad is never quite as fun as it sounds. It usually means a trip to the vet. So who was yesterday’s lucky winner?

Wait a minute

Wait a minute. Why am I in here all alone?

Yes, Kiska was the lucky winner of a trip to the vet. Fortunately, there was no limping involved (Hu-dad is a little sensitive about limping after a couple of TPLO surgeries around here) nor was there any other type of issue. This was just a routine exam.

how did i do

Ok, Doc, how did I do on my tests?

All preliminary tests and the examination showed healthy results. And Kiska said the ride home was much more fun.

    Mom ‘n Ice BOTH say: Way to go, Kiska, those are the kind of Doctors appointments we like to hear about. Stay healthy!
