The Screening Process

Hey Roo!

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!!

Yes, we have picked up a few tips from SZK!

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.

Let's hang out in the shade for awhile. ***pant pant pant***

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.

Hmmmm... this is kind of like the v*e*t, but it's NOT the v*e*t...

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.

That wasn't so bad!

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.

I want to go home.

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

I don't think your mum was particularly nice to you today. I hope you got cookies when you arrived home.

Other than the dog park, sounds like a total day of torture to me!!

But, then again, I scream the Siberian death scream when and needles, poking, proding, or nail clipping comes my way!

Next time, as for cheese!!!

We think the blood trip and the vet stop should have warranted another trip to the dog park or to the ice cream store. We hope you pass the screening, what a great thing to do.

The dog park sounds fun, but I don't know about the other places. At least it's for a great cause and you got treats out of it! :) I hope you pass the screening!
