We had quite a busy morning today. huMom said she wanted us to work off some excess energy first, so we went to the DOG PARK!!
huMom tried to take pics of us together but wasn't too happy our pawsitioning... she said this pic was the best one. Haroooo!! There weren't very many doggies there, but we did meet a nice girl named Roxy.
After we got back in the HUV, huMom took a left instead of a right... where are we going? When we got out of the HUV, she took us somewhere we have never been before.
They took Maebe back first (huMom says she is the braver one, hmmmmph), then she explained to me why we were here. She says we are here for blood donor screening. This place is called the Las Vegas Veterinary Referral Center, and they have an animal blood bank. So if doggies or kitties get hurt, the blood they get from here can save their life. If we pass the screening, we may be able to give the gift of life.
We don't have any pics of what they did to us (let's just say it involved needles, yuck!) but we did get sent home with a big bag of treats each. The doctor had to get my sample from my leg, I just wasn't into pokey things in my neck. I snarled at her a little. She said if I did become a donor I would probably have to be sedated, but due to my temperament I may not be a suitable donor. I want to help other doggies and all, but I REALLY don't like pokey things. If we pass the basic screening and have the universal blood type, then Maebe will go back again (I will if I HAVE to).
As if that wasn't enough excitement for one day, we went to another place after we were done with the screening. Yes, the v*e*t... we got our butts squeezed and our nails clipped.
huMom was happy to hear that we were pretty empty back there. So we won't have to go again for a really long time, right???
See ya later! Woooo woo rar rar rar... Kayla
