It might sound weird, but my dog loves going to the vet. She knows that there are tons of new people there to pet her and plenty of treats to go around.
But I know she’s the exception, not the rule.
Our pups have it pretty easy, so it’s understandable that a trip to the vet is one of the most stressful things they experience. They’re poked and prodded…it’s far from a day at the park.
Sawyer here, though, has a little trick up his sleeve to really milk every vet visit for what it’s worth. He’s learned that the louder and longer he cries after a shot, the more likely he is to get loads of treats and belly rubs…
Since he suffered through two shots and got treats each time for whining, this sort of reaction was bound to happen. Which, given how funny he is, isn’t a bad thing, right?
