Wednesday came and I was all excited – It was my day to meet the Special List.
well I was excited – but I don’t let something like that get in the way of a good sleep.
Anyway we were driving along and Mumma said “here we are Mr Darcy, at the UniPurrCity to see the Special List”.
This was even more exciting as I have heard a lot of talk about the UniPurrCity before; Mumma goes there all the time – but she’s never taken me with her!
The people there were very nice – but I was a bit nervous – because I could smell needles.
I met this chap named Jacob. Mumma took photos but weirdly they didn’t come out, even though the flashy was going off.
Again Mumma and I are given more sad news about my danelicious body. Apparently I have a heart murmur.
Then, we went outside, and Mumma walked me around while Jacob and Mara watched. It was at that moment I thought “I must be a handsome chap” because they couldn’t take their eyes off me. Then it was confirmed when Jacob said: “Do you mind if I video him?”
lesson one, learnt: I am a handsome chap
Well then next was the bit I didn’t like – Mumma left me there. She gave me an ear rub and said ‘see you later’ which is what she always says when she’s leaving me behind.
I tried to follow her – I pulled Mara along for a couple of metres, trying to follow Mumma. But then Mara and Jacob ganged up on me; and I was walked off in the other direction with Mara attempting to distract me with the largest Liver treats I have ever seen. that helped – a little.
Mara and Jacob told me that they were going to give me a hair-cut. Well I thought this is exciting! They gave me a horrible needle and I fell asleep thinking about what I would look like when I woke up.
Mumma came to visit me that night she tells me; apparently I was that tired I didn’t even wake up, I just made little sad noises in my sleep.
Well you can imagine my dismay when I woke up to find myself with this:
I feel violated.
They also shaved my tummy, and most bizzare of all, I have a perfect shaved rectangle on my front leg!
where is the artistry in that?
lesson two, learnt:: Vets have no artistry when it comes to danelicious body fur.
Then my back end really wasn’t working. And when it got better I went around with a the help of Mara and a sling around my waist.
After this photo was taken I still had to wait all day at the UniPurrCity before I could go home.
When mumma came to pick me up to go home I told her what I dreadful time I had. I told her via the medium of ‘howl’ – which I thought my friends from the Ao4 would be very proud of me for doing.
When I got to the car I was so keen to get in and go home that I forgot all about the fact I could hardly walk and launched myself at the boot (which had my cushy bed waiting for me); only to miss and smack my head on the side of the car.
After that I let the hoomans pick me up and put me in.
Lesson three, learnt: cars are hard
In the car, traveling home, I started thinking about the mysterious Special List. Who was oddly absent the entire time….
lesson four, Learnt: The Special List is a character invented by hoomans to make doggies think going to the Vet is fun and interesting. There is no such thing as a Special List.
