not the V-E-T (rut roh)/ PawDance

Smiley from millan.nethi bloggiepals,

well, it was that time of year again. 
Annual exam &  vaccinations... for moi, it's my worse nightmare.
i do NOT like to be handle. touched. looked at..  by the vet at ALL!


look at me, i look like an anteater with this tubey thing on my face with a GL!
mom says safety for everyone comes first, not fashion.
guess she's right, b/c the minute the vet entered..
i gave him my most welcome, how've you been greeting-
low grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

which set the tone for the exam.
luckily i do get a feedbag of chicken in my face
the entire time. mom makes sure to keep my face in it 
so i don't want to eat the vet.

i mean he's trying to score a homerun when
he didn't even work to get to first base- if you know what i mean!


then i heard all my secrets being discussed right in front of me..

okay, so i gained a few pounds. + 10 = 114 lbs.. big deal
and yes, i sleep alot... 
and do not like to exert any amount of energy on walking, moving..
unless it involves foodies.
is that a problem?

the vet thought it could be side effects of my medication & other factors.
he ordered my meals to be cut in HALF (rut roh)
and that all my treats were ok -since they're given for a purpose (kinduv - training, right)

but he decided to check my thyroid.
yep, got a call the next day, that was the culprit. 
a very low thyroid can cause weight gain, lethargy & aggression in some dogs.
most large females. huh? moi?!

the prescription: levothyroxine medication
we'll see how it goes.

so to make it up to me..
mom scheduled an appointment with JULIE!
my animal massage therapist.
she's helping me get use to being handled & touched 
(it's purely therapeutic reasons-- ookay!)

here's my greeting for Julie..Smiley from millan.net

she's what you call a WOO WOO FRIEND!
thanks julie.. now i'm loose as a goose:)

We sure hope your new medicine works, Tula! We wouldn't want you to eat the v-e-t! We have been spending way too much time and money at our v-e-t's office lately! First, Penny got all her shots, then she had surgeries and now I, Patches get my teefies cleaned on Tuesday! Waaaaaay too much time AND money!

Thyroid issues can so easily pack on the pounds. We saw that with Dakota. But we have seen the good results from soloxine (maybe the same as you have?) with several other pups we know. Bet that massage felt good, Tula.

Good luck in the contest - great moves there.

Mom loves that woo woo!

Hmmm! Humans can never keeps our secrets! Mom is always talking about me needing a diet!

A massage therapist! Does it relax you? I am in extreme nervous mode. I won't even lets my mom hold me! Sometimes I tries to bite her hand when she pets me!

Mango said...

Tula! Your voice is mesmerizing. I am so looking forward to sniffing your butt. Yuh for sure.

Hey! That is the way momma acts when she sees her massage therapist. You gals...

That was a bad look, the whole anteater face and the vet sounds quite fresh. Imagine feeling your Tula-ness. No wonder you were gruff. I bet your mom looks forward to those trips as much as you do.

Sorry about that whole diet thing. Can't you just say that you are training during meal time?

Meals cut in half Tula- want me to send food parcels? Crickey you'll be all weak, wimpy and wobbly then Mango will think it's because he's in sniffin' distance to your Tulaness.

I hear ANYone named Julie should be loved by any pup! Wow Tula, you get your own massage person? and at your HOME? WTF? geesh... maybe i should claim low thyroid and do some "reacting" or something... maybe i could get someone to come over my house and give me one or two or three... you lucky dog.
