A Kind & Gentle Soul...

I had to get my shots updated this week & since Winton & I go to the same vet for that...guess who came along? I was my usual cool self...Vets don't bug me much...except when they want to see my beautiful black behind for activities other than rump rubs...but I tolerate it cuz I'm such a kind & gentle soul. Here I am above hanging out at the vet...They changed their treats in the treat jar to something really tasty...I had about 10 of them...
Well, Wincompoop (aka PipSqweek...real name Winston, my cousin) needed to have his nails trimmed & he went POSTAL - PSYCHO - take your pick! They needed 3 vet techs to restrain him - & still couldn't get the job he has one paw with short nails & the other three are still razor sharp. Oh, & the pièce de résistance? He sprayed his anal fluid from his anal sacs like a skunk & got it all on the techs! Oh - the stench was unbelievable...& he had to ride home in the car like that - stinking everything up... So now he is hanging with us for the weekend...his peoples went on a little get away...& funny thing is, I'm trying to get away from him too!
Here I am at the doggy wash a couple days ago...the water is too cold outside to bathe al my mom/secretary takes me & I have nice warm bubble bath...I even let her use the blower on me...I HATE THAT THING...but as long as she didn't get it in my face...I tolerated it...again...a kind & gentle soul I am...
Pippa asked me yesterday if I like balls...I like tennis balls, squeeky balls, footballs, big balls, little name it..I like it...but I don't think I'd like these balls that Nanook & Pooka's mama are talking about...they might scare me & I might not be so kind & gentle then...
Here is a glorious booty shot for all you to enjoy...LET THE RUMP RUBS BEGIN!
Love & Licks,

Hey Randi, J1 was laughing at the thought of travelling in a car with anal gland juice. Personally, I think it would be pawsome! Hope Winston is OK after the trauma of nail cutting! I don't like it much either. J x

Gus and Louie said...

We like going to the vet too. The nurses just uggle over me. One always want to take me home to her ranch. I think I would love that I could herd something besides cats!!!

I love going to the Vet! They are very nice to me and give me lots of cookies.

Thanks for the butt shot...I'm gonna go take a nap & dream of you Randi.


Peanut said...

Oh Randi poor you having to smell Winston's butt juices. Yuck. That is quite the rump shot. It will make all the boys light headed. I know it worked on me. :)

Sophie Brador said...

Randi, Once again, we are exactly the same. I am so good at the vet. I'm not particularly happy, but I go along with everything because of those damn treats. But I did pull a Winston once, when they had to lift me onto the xray table. I was pretty freaked out about that. I don't like being up on things, unless they are big snow hills. I love to poop at the top of big snow hills.

Grammie said...

Maybe Winston should have anti anxiety meds before going to the vet. It might lessen his major meltdown. Great shots of you as always.

Daisy said...

Randi, you do seem like a very kind and gentle soul.

Wincompoop! Hahahahaha! That's a funny nickname. PEEYOO, I'll bet that smelled very terrible, too.

Harry said...

Ew, stinky! I actually like the vets too, and if we walk past I usually push the door open to say hello!

AYE MAMI !! The title of your last post probably never bore as much credence as it does now...Somethin' smells fishy FER SURE !! Anal sac juice is NO fun!! Blech! :P

Lots of rump rubs to you!

Much love :)

Hey, congrats on the weight loss, bully stick and fish! You go, Girl!

Poppy said...

I know how Winston feels about the nail clipping. I do the same thing if my parents ever (stupidly) try to clip them. When the vet techs do it, I have no problem whatsoever, as long as Mommy and Daddy aren't there!


Pee Ess: I'm a little behind on blogs, and I just wanted to make sure I told you to tell your mom that she is not weird for saving whiskers in a baggie. My parents save Clover's and my whiskers in a special tall skinny shot glass on the counter in the kitchen!!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Randi
Nice butt shot!
I don't have a problem going to the vet either!
I just can imagine how stinky Winston was!
I wish I had a bath but here is very cold and my mom refuses to give me one!
Kisses and hugs

I am laughing so hard at poor Winston - he sure did get his revenge on those vet techs!!!!!

Enjoy your rump rubs buddy you sound like such an awesome guy putting up with all the goings on at the vet and the dog wash!


Ike said...

My mom has had the butt juice sprayed all over her and she doesn't think it's funny (but I do!)

Daisy said...

ps: Randi, I am working on a special lizard spa idea for next week!

Dory and Liza said...

Oh Randi -

My mom is very impressed with your good behavior at the vet and dog wash - can you imagine, she said I was impossible!


Frasier said...

Hi Randi
I'm getting a rump rub on you!!!
I like the smells at the vets but not the shots!!

Kate said...

I don't go to the vet very often. Only for my jabs.

Master sorts my claws out. Kin dmaster.

Thank you for mentioning the balls.

I will send you my email. I have yours somewhere from the chrissy card exchange.

Mistress is struggling because one of her contact lenses has broken so she is peering at everything.

Happy Randay. Love Pippa xx

hi Randi, you made our mom laugh and snort when she read about the anal juice getting squirted all over the vet techs. we bet that Winston is not their favorite dog there after that. after that, we understand why his parents wanted to get away for a few days. and you are a kind and gentle soul. you never do anything bad, you are a sweet girl with the most sexy white ankle sox.


4xBs said...

pee ess - we are amazed by your beautiful tail. pawsome.

Seadra & Zoe said...

Hi Randi.... Oh our Mom wishes that we had a doggie wash around here. She hates giving us baths in the bathtub and having to bend over the tub and all. We have a brand new petsmart that is opening in a few weeks and we are hoping that they have a doggie wash in there that we can use.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

oh my, what an awful thing to happen, the anal spray! Jeannie says it gives her the "baulk" (makes her feel sick - Sorry Scottish expression!) when I get it done at the Vets - let alone being sprayed by it!

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Stanley said...

Thanks for the booty shot, girlie!

That anal sack juice is mighty nasty stuff. As my vet says, "A little goes a long way." My girl had to take my buddy, Lady, to have her butt sacks squeezed empty and she can attest to that factoid.

My girl also likes to bathe me al fresco, but it's a little too cold for that here and I WILL NOT get into the tub at home, so I too get to go to the dogwash. I'm not too fond of the place, but it's better than freezing my patootie off outside.

Goober love,

Beanz said...

Ok, I'm going to admit something now, but only to make Winston feel better.

One time, i stuck my head out of the cat flap. I know I am not supposed to but I couldn't help myself.

TJam came up behind me and slapped my behind whilst reprimanding me verbally.

I was so surprised and hyped up that I anal glanded all over her arm.
