Shelby's trip to the vet

Here are some pictures I took with my cameraphone while we were waiting for the vet. Despite a very nice man, and being very gentle with Shelby, she is still scared when she comes here. I guess there's a little part of her that just hates getting something stuck up her butt. I don't blame her. When she's waiting, she puts her face very close to mine, so that my face fills up her entire field of vision. I rub her ears to make her feel better.

Comforting Shelby at the Vet
Here I am comforting her, though maybe a little too much. It looks like I'm smothering her.

Here is Shelby, waiting in front of the brochure wall of terrible pet diseases.

Golly, I just want to pick her up and give her tons and tons of kisses and hugs!! I just hate those cold, hard examining tables ... I really think they should cushion them ... poor little pups. Feel better soon, Shelby. You have a super caring, loving mom and dad!

My chihuahua goes crazy when we're at the Vet. Especially when I put her on the metal table. She stands up and tries to stand as close as possible to me. If I'm close enough to the table, she tries to jump into my arms.

My lil' pug is so petrified of the vet now! (My housesitter let her get into some bad stuff, and then my puggy had to go to the emergency vet...) Ever since then, I've had to sedate my poor dear so she can be examined! She still does that horrible puggy scream as she is getting her nails clipped... Sigh.

Feel better Shelby, I hope that you get a diagnosed and get all better now!

Awwww poor thing. Hope she feels better soon. I've been watching your site for a while, I'm a Pug owner to be. Shelby is adorable, I hope I find a pug like her.

Awwwwww, poor puggie. She looks so scared. ;__; I want to snuggle her, welts and all, to make her feel better. I'm so glad she has such a good mom and dad. :D
