This morning started out normally (for me). I have Addison’s Disease and I need a shot every 25 days to live. It’s really not too bad for me since I get treats after and I’m getting used to it. So I piled into the Scottiemobile and was ready to go.
It’s 12 miles to Anthem and Doctor Cohen’s. We parked the Scottiemobile and He took me around to piddle. If he doesn’t do that, I do it on the scale when they weigh me.
After piddling, I went in and, of course, went right to the pet FOOD section.
I wasn’t allowed to open those “presents”, so I proceeded to the front where the treat jar is located. Sitting up and begging only resulted in one treat. I know, I know-I have to go through the pain to get the gain.
It was time to be weighed.
I was good and didn’t piddle. What was surprising was that I was only 9.8 kg instead of the 10.8 just 25 days ago. That’s over 2 pounds lost in less than a month. Doc Cohen came out and talked to Him. We should have been outta there by now with no charge. They ordered up a bunch of tests and blood work. I went back in and got poked again. The results won’t be known for a few days. Doc said to increase my rations by 10%. YIPPEE-more food. Doc said I was a skinny Scottie and we’ll see how that goes. I know how it will go, I’m inhaling all the extra food. He knew She wouldn’t believe it so He had the Doc write up a prescription to increase my food. She can’t refuse.
I am worried about the test results, though. He
tattled told the Doc that yesterday morning I was shivering and cowering but they gave me a stress pill and I was OK. We’ll find out soon, Paws crossed.
We came home later than expected and the wallet suffered over a $300 hit. He told me it was cheaper when I just ate the stuff.
I was right all along-I need more food.
