Here's a timeline of how the fasting news went over with Rita.
7:15am Momma breaks the news that there will be no breakfast.
"Uh, how's that, Momma?"
7:35am Rita checks to make sure she heard me correctly.
"Seriously? NO breakfast?!"
7:45am In desperation, Rita attempts to eat rawhide chew that has been ignored the last 3 weeks. Momma confiscates rawhide.
8:39am In deeper desperation, Rita attempts to eat Benebone. Momma confiscates Benebone.
9:53am Momma assumes Rita is napping away fasting period, but finds Rita in bedroom texting Daddy.
12:30pm Momma eats lunch. Rita in disbelief.
2:15pm Shown in to exam room. Realization sets in. Bargaining begins.
2:20pm Rita attempts to hide behind Momma's legs.
2:40pm All done! Somebody was a very good girl and gets Spot Farms bacon treats.
The vet said she looked really good. Just waiting to get her blood work back from the lab, but sounds like she's a healthy girl. Anyway, Rita hates going to the vet enough as it is, but to have to fast most of the day on top of it, well, that's some serious mischief on the Momma's part!
So Rita would like me to turn this post into a Public Service Announcement: Next time you need to schedule your pup's annual check up, make sure you get an appointment first thing in the morning if fasting is involved!
