Well, mom made me go to see Dr. Don today because of my yucky tummy. I haven’t been feeling too good. When we got there we had to sit out in a waiting area so I could think about it and watch other dogs go to little rooms. Oh that was scary. I sat in mom’s lap and shook. Then they called my name. YIKES! Mom took me into a little room and put me up on a table. Then Dr. Don came in. He smells funny, like medicene and dogs and cats. He wrapped this rubbery thing around my little leg. I didn’t like that tight thing and tried to pull it off but mom made me leave it alone. Then Dr. Don stuck me with a sharp sticker thing. And mom let him! Some of my blood came out and went into a little glass looking thing and Dr. D took it away. Whew! I lay down on that table facing mom so I could see her good and make sure she wasn’t going away. Finally Dr. Don came back and said I have Gastroenteritis, whatever that is. All I know is that it made me have a yucky tummy. I have to have a bland diet of white starchy stuff for awhile, mom said a week. Since I “got rid” of my breakfast this morning, mom fixed a potato for me when we got back and let me have some of it. It was yummy and I ate it all up. Mom said I can have some rice for dinner. I guess that will be alright, we’ll see.
Ethan went with us to Dr. Don’s place. He stood and looked at the fish in the tank the whole time we were waiting, while I was sitting on mom’s lap shaking. Mom said that fish tank was better than a TV! I know he left me along while he stared at those fishes.
