New Friends at the Nursing Home

I know what you are thinking - on earth? I went to the nursing and rehabilitation center last week again and made a lot of new friends. I did see some whom I did remember from the time before. We walked up and down the halls and into the separate rooms to meet all kinds of different people. Everyone was happy to see me. Some really enjoyed holding me and wanted me to stay with them. I also got to lay down next to two people on their beds. I love sleeping! I wish I could have stayed and slept.

Alas, a little dog's work is never done, on to meet other new friends for me.

One thing a lot of people told me was that my paws were really small. They look like normal paws to me. It seemed that almost every single person wanted to just hold my paws. It was as if I had magnets on them - all they wanted to do was hold and feel my paws. Some people touched all four, others just the top ones. I felt kind of funny because I thought maybe they wanted to trim my nails (that is NEVER going to happen!).

In one of the rooms we visited, I heard someone say, that the person was a veterinarian - that sounded slightly familiar -and then I remembered -- "NOoooooo - I am NOT going in there! I thought - this is just a ruse to get me to see the vet! "

I had little choice. We went in the room. All the vet said, "that is a nice looking dog."


That is it?


Aren't you going to check my ears, my tummy, listen to my heart?

Nope. Nope. Nope.

He just ignored me, really. Perhaps that was his plan. He continued talking while ignoring me there, just sitting...

...waiting for him to examine me.

I waited.


Soon we walked out and I realized nothing was going to happen.

This time.

I am going to keep a close eye on him next time - in case this is just a trick!
