What does V.E.T. stand for?

Well, I think I am back to myself again. Yesterday, I was even barking at the dogs across the street. I haven't done that in several days. Mom and Dad are glad I'm back to normal but wished I wasn't back to arguing with the neighbors. What am I supposed to do? They bark, so I must bark!
You guys left me some great comments on Friday.....here are a few of my faves in case you missed them:
Sadie said: "And as far as that job,maybe you would do better at a pet store, they have a lot of treats there!" Great idea!
Lorenza said: "A job?? Nope! It does not sound good!" That's what I think.
Fiona said: "As for getting a job where you ask "do you want fries with that?" - that seems to me that it might lead you to eating MORE things that maybe you shouldn't.... I'd talk to your Mom about getting you started in modeling or, maybe as a spokesperson for your vet? Or suggest that all those hours that she spends sleeping could be spent at a second job.... :-)" You reading this Mom?
Sasha said: "Have you thought about a lemonade stand out front, I bet no one could resist you." Hmmm...
Martha and Bailey said: "We wish you luck on your sensible eating - we like to eat rubbish off the ground too "!Rubbish?
Rocky Creek Scotties said: "We know what it's like when you are close to the ground - there's a smorgasbord just waiting to be discovered." Mmmm, a smorgasbord sounds yummier than rubbish.
Ruby's Mom said: "It's so hard to keep their snoots off the ground. If I fish one more wood chip out of Ruby's mouth, I can build a small log cabin." Ruby, you gotta swallow that stuff faster but wood chips?
Stormy said: "And I TOTALLY understand about the lecture! I'm 13 and have taken to going up to my mom and just woofing her up one side and down the other. No reason. Just to give her a piece of my mind. You should try that. It's very cleansing. :)" Excellent advise!
Please don't be offended if I didn't quote you, I just thought those were particularly funny.

This is the look I gave Mom yesterday after she told me she talked to the V.E.T. again.....
I'm feeling better, why would she need to call them again? She said she had to let them know how I am doing. She was also able to ask Dr. Abby a few more questions (My mom is the question queen). First of all and most important to me is Dr. Abby said she doubted this case with me was from something I ate! HA! I haven't been bad like Mom and Dad thought. I did not deserve that lecture I got either! (Storms, I am considering what you said) Dr. Abby said it seemed more like a spontaneous infection, similar to appendicitis. She couldn't say why this happened but she did say the important thing is I was responding to the treatment. With humans they always want to have a diagnosis and they generally have the equipment available to do that but not so with us pets. That is okay with me, I don't want to have any more tests than needed.
Now, speaking about the V.E.T., Dr. Abby reads my blog sometimes and she is convinced that V.E.T. stands for something mean. As far as I know it doesn't. I just say it like that because I don't like to visit her. No offense, Dr. Abby. I think maybe we should put our heads together and come up with something. You guys got any ideas?

Munchkin Memoirs
I've been pondering picking out a photo to enter The Munchkins "Ear"resistable contest. What do you think about this one?
Don't forget to enter your bestest ear photo.
I'm hoping Mom will get off her lazy bum and dig out some of my puppy pics someday. I'm pretty sure I could win every contest with some of those babies! BOL!

Hi Twix!
I think thats a nice picture, but you always take ear resistable pictures. ( at lease we think they are really cute)
As far as Dr. Abby, you should tell her that its not that you don't like her as a person, is that you don't feel good when you go to visit her.
I'm sure as a person she is pretty swell, but the things she has to do to get you well is what you don't like.

I am SO glad you are feeling better, Twix; we were worried about you!

Oooo! I LOVE that ear photo. So KHUTE!

Bijou said...

Hi Twix,

We are happy you are back to normal and that it wasn't something you ate that made you feel bad. But keep in mind that eating junk off the ground can make you very sick.

You ear-resistible picture is terrific. Good luck in the contest!

Wags & wiggles,

Well, you could always make your mom happy and not bark at the neighbors. Bark at HER instead. Ha roo roo roo. Seriously. I think you'd enjoy it!
Since our vets are the wonderful people at KSU Ved Med Teaching Hospital... I think V.E.T. could stand for Very Endearing Trainers -- since they're training vets of the future! Ours sometimes read our blog, too. They're mighty wonderful bipeds!
Tail wags, Storms

Lorenza said...

Hi, Twix!
I am so happy to know you are feeling much better! Barking at your neighbors sure is a good sign!
You are Ear-resistible!
Kisses and hugs

Barking at the neighbors is a good sign that our Twix is back to normal!!!

My mom says V.E.T. stands for Very Expensive Things :) Glad to hear they have you feeling back to your Twixy self!!

Twix, I am so happy to read that you are getting back to your old self, barking and just being the Twixers. Please continue to get your sleep as often as you need to and please don't eat unfamiliar food anyway just to be safe. Beg and give Mom and Dad the sad eyes and treats should be coming your way.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Love the ear pic...

Abby xxxooo

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

We're glad you're up and barking again.

We're not so sure, but Mom thinks that V.E.T. is "very expensive trained-animal-doctors"

Hi Twix, I have been having a problem getting your new posts. I am soooo very much behind in all that has happened to you. I am thrilled that you are better now, and soooo very much sorry that you had that terrible sick spell and those trips to the V.E.T.. I think you did the appropriate thing by peeing and pooping on the floor after they dared to even touch (let alone squeeze) your cute little butt.
It seems that for some reason your blog needs to be manually advanced by clicking on newer post button. I won't forget to do it in the future. You be sure to give your WONDERFUL MOM & DAD A SPECIAL LICK for taking such good care of you when you were sick. PeeS I think you already have a job. It is keeping your humans happy.

Hello Twix,

Glad you are feeling better now. The V.E.T thingy is not my favorite too but I do not detest them either cos they make me feel better when I'm sick.

Licks, hero.

Marla said...

I think your mom thinks V.E.T stands for Very Expensive Trip whenever you go!

Glad all is well. . .

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

We are very happy that you are feeling better Twix. We don't like going to the V-E-T either. That is most certainly an "ear"resistible photo of you! We will post it in our next contest post. If your Mom digs out the puppy pics and wants to enter one of those too, that would be great.

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins
