Who knew a little snackie could cause sooooo much drama?
She gave me n Puffie a bone shaped snack, same kind we get every Sunday. Today I was sooooo eager to get my treatie, when I grabbed it, I got it in the middle and chomped down so hard the ends fell off and the middle went down my throat.
I went into immediate dig it out my mouf mode.
Diggin so hard my mouf and feeties were covered in blood.
And if you aren't familiar with Scotties, our leggies are short. Little 4 inch stubbies.
So to dig in my extra long mouf, I hafta curl my mouf under my chest to dig around in there.
I couldn't breathe!
I was in panic mode and she went into rescue mode.
She picked me up upside down and gave me a good shake and part of it fell out. Then she shoved her big ole mitt down my throat and dug around in there for HOURS it seemed.
She got a bit of it out and then went back for some more.
Finally I was able to get a breath, but it still wasn't all out.
She got the neighbor to drive us up to the emergency vet clinic which is about 35 minutes away.
I'm choking and gagging and she's prying around in my mouf tryng to see if there was anything caught in my mouf. Of course, about 10 minutes from the vet, I start being able to breathe and settle down to wash the blood off my paws. She made me go see the vet anyways, so there was another round of people poking me from both ends.
Now I ask you, in the name of all things Holy, why on earth do they need to take yer temperature when you are choking on a treatie? First? BEFORE they open yer yap and take a peek in the correct end?
Noooooo...lets grease up the temp stick and shovie it in the WRONG end. I'm not SICK, I'm choking!!Maybe they think they needed to do a hind-lick maneuver? Wanted to make sure that end was warm first?
Then the stoopid vet tech lady goes...."Oh what a cute Schnauzer"...hello, lady, see the TAIL and the naturally pointed ears? The short stubbie leggies?
And then again with the vet guy....you wonder where they go to school.....'Nice looking Westie'....um, no...See the color of my fur? WHEATEN, not white. Ears long and on top of my head almost touching? And if that isn't proof enuf, check out the LONG mouf...yeah, go ahead...open up the flashy jaws of death and try sticking yer fingers in there.....you'll wish I was a Westie. Then, he had the nerve to try and tell HER that Scotties are BLACK. Maybe at the online school where you bought yer diploma dude, but not out here in the real world.
For those of you that might need a visual reminder of the differences, here is a great link from Scottish Terrier and Dog News:
Anyways, she tossed a bucket of money at them and we left. Stoopid vet tried to tell Her I just had the treat stuck in my mouf. Snort. We both checked there.
But the BADDEST news.....I had to get on the scale (again...WHY? If I was choking to death in the lobby would I still have to be weighed?)....and...I gained 5 lbs since the Mr. has been out of commission. The obvious results of Her not taking me on my 3 miles hikes and the Mr. giving me shortbread. I loooooooovvvvveeeee me some shortbread. And the Mr. has been known to crumble up a couple in my kibbie. I heard her mumble something about ONLY carrots and buying a treadmill.
All this drama over a treatie gone bad.
All's well that ends well, I say.
