Today was Lightning's day to pay a visit to the V.E.T. for his two year old exam.
Can you tell how thrilled he is to be in the car? When he gets in the car, he is truly a wild one! Mom decided to get him a seat belt harness so she could contain him in the back seat.
This photo shows you what he thought about that!!! No sooner had Mom backed out of the driveway when Lightning figured out how to unbuckle the seat belt. He says it was easy peasy, just put that paw on the red button and presto!!! - he was free! At least he stayed in the back and just cried all the way to the vet. And thankfully it is only an eight minute ride.
Lightning is happy to report that he got a great report. He is a solid 63 pounds of muscle - perfect for his build. Heartworm negative, all shots administered, and lots of hugs and petting from the very nice vet lady and vet tech. Oh, and he doesn't want us to forget to mention he got lots of yummy treats too.
This photo is from the return trip home - totally calm and relaxed:)
Of course, I was calm. I knew I was going home and I don't have to go through THAT again for another year. Mom says next time I might have to be in a crate:( I don't like crates, so maybe I will think about that seat belt contraption again.
Meanwhile, we are all here to tell you that those "nuts" we showed you were indeed black walnuts. Mom took them to one of our local nurseries. Somehow the SSS (Stealth Squirrel Squad) is getting in our kingdom and burying them. We will try not to worry Mom any more by chewing on them as long as she continues to give us those tasty treats. She said to tell everyone that the black walnuts can have a toxic mold on the outside of them, not to mention the risk of choking or intestinal blockage. Now, Momster, hand over the goodies.
