    A trip to the doctor
    We took Chardy to the vet yesterday for her yearly check-up and vaccination. The poor thing. She was so excited that we were going somewhere in the car, but when we got there, she wasn't very happy. Before we owned her, she had injured her back legs, and it was touch and go for a while, so she spent some time at the vet's. So now the place has very bad memories for her. I had to drag her in the door (it doesn't help that the floor is all slippery and dogs can't walk on it), then she went straight under the chairs in the waiting room, and she was literally trembling all over. Once we got into the examination room, she just wanted to hide in the corner. The vet ended up having to examine her on the floor, because she kept squirming when he tried to pick her up, and she did try to bite him (lol).
    The good news is, the vet is very impressed with Chardy. He had expressed concerns about her back legs, but was surprised that they have healed up well, and since she jumps up on them (something she never used to do), they are clearly not bothering her anymore. Plus, she's at her ideal weight. So he basically said for us to keep doing what we're doing, and Chardy should be healthy for a long while yet.
    Then he gave her some schmackos for being good. Awww!

Heheh! Thanks. At least we don't have to go through that for another year.
