Mr Brambles and the Vet!

Hi Ho Woofers!

Its 'The Gang' again, Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles!

Last night was very calm, Old Two Legs didn't fall out of bed, Holly didn't need a midnights wee and I didn't feel like woofing at anyone who walked past our gate. Snowflake & Mr Brambles slept in the old travelling cage and cuddled up to each other all night long!

All together Aaaaaaah!

We had our normal walk this morning but we left Mr Brambles at home 'cos he hadn't had his jab yet and also we didn't have a harness and lead for him, yet.

That's on the weekend shopping list!

Just before lunch time OTL and Mr Brambles went off to the vets.

Now, Holly and I have been telling him all about the vets and how they always seem to make OTL cry when he comes out of there. We also told him about the time Snowflake went to see the vet and how the vet wouldn't wait for her to come out of the cage on her own and stuck his hand in to get her out and how she bit him!

We all had a good laugh about that!

Mr Brambles said that although it was not a nice thing to do, a nip here and there does liven things up a bit!

Off they went and this time the vet waited for OTL to get Mr Brambles out of the cage, so there was no reason give the vet a nip!

Mr Brambles passed inspection with flying colours and was pronounced to be 'About four years old, fit and healthy and his back feet were OK and the missing toe was of 'No concern.'

He was inspected for fleas and ticks and found to be 'All Clear', but we knew that anyway 'cos that is something OTL is very strict about!

Then the vet got out the needle thing and stabbed Mr Brambles so that he had protection against Distemper and a few other things as well.

Mr Brambles said it was 'Uncomfortable' but he put up with it 'cos it was for his own good and 'cos it cost a lot of money to have done.

So back home they came, OTL was still weeping when he got back, seems like the vet bit OTL with the bill!

Snowflake was pleased to see Mr Brambles and they had a good game of 'Chase' and it ended with Snowflake jumping on top of him and nibbling his neck!

The injection made Mr Brambles a bit tired so he has retired to his bed and has only come out for some food, a drink, a slurp of Ferretone and a cuddle with OTL!

Jus' Snoozing, Jus' snoozing!
Lunchtime we went out for a stroll and we got into serious poo, in more ways than one, in the end we were put on our lead and marched back home where both Holly and I had a 'Full Wash', from the tip of our noses to the tip of our tailses!

As OTL said, WOT A PONG!

Well, it seemed a good idea at the time!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles!


  1. Sounds like Mr Brambles is a very brave young chap. I'm so glad he is settling in well, he's gone to a lovely home with lots of lovely girls.

  2. All such good news. Hope he doesn't find Snowflake too demanding and starts chuckling soon x
