Vet Woes

I had to go to the vet on Friday.  I didn't go because I had the sickies but to get some shots.  I wasn't very happy about going so I decided to act crazy in the car.  I know I don't look crazy in this photo but I was.  

Momma was getting very mad at me because I wouldn't stop crying.  I wanted her to put my window down but she kept saying something about it only being 15 degrees outside.  Whatever!  

So I cried and cried all the way to the vet.  I was a super spaz so I doubt I will be taking any car rides anytime soon.

The first thing I did when we arrived was check for mail.  I checked and checked but couldn't find any.  What the heck?  Didn't they know I was coming?

I asked this guy where all the mail was but he was absolutely no help.  I think they should fire him because he is a terrible doorman.

Since there wasn't any mail for me, I decided to be polite and leave some for the next dog.  

"I'm here! Can I have a treat, please?"

Momma said no treats until after my appointment.  She is no fun at all.  Next time I am going to have Daddy bring me.

Doesn't this look like a totally random picture?  It kind of is.  Before Momma took this picture, she was talking to this lady.  The lady asked if she could pet me because she has a pug.  I don't know why the lady was there without the pug but she was very nice.  And Momma loved her hair.  I told Momma to take a picture but Momma was way too embarrassed, so she waited until the lady wasn't facing us and she snapped away.  You may have to bigify the photo but it won't really do the do justice.  Suffice it to say, Momma would wear her hair like this if her hair would do this, if she had a cute face like this lady, and if she were 50 pounds lighter.  

One reason I wasn't looking forward to going to the vet was because my favorite doctor, Dr. Lisa, left the practice.  I couldn't believe it and neither could Momma.  Momma just found Dr. Lisa again after many years and now she's lost her again.

But March Animal Hospital has all my info and I needed my shots so we decided to go there.  

"Why are we being kept waiting, Momma?  Dr. Lisa never made us wait.  I'm going home.  I will live without my shots!"

And that's when I heard them.  All the doggies behind this door barking at me.  They were telling me that this new doctor, Dr. Beloiu,  was very nice and that she would take good care of me.  Of course, I had to translate all this to Momma since she doesn't speak dog, and once I did, she was relieved.

Since I had Momma in a good mood, I figured it was the perfect time to point out the huge treat jar within reach.  Unfortunately, she wasn't in that good of a mood.  She ignored my begging and picked me up to show me this:

I had to point out that the doggies on the poster were labs, not pugs.  Labs have weight problems so that's why they are on posters.  If pugs had weight problems, they would be on posters but there wasn't one single poster with a pug on it. 

I never did get a treat even though I was a total angel for Dr. Beloiu.  I was so mad about the treat situation that I decided to take matters into my own paws.  I decided I would do something so embarrassing that Momma would have to give in to my demands.  So I pooped in the lobby while Momma was handing over lots of green papers.  My twinner Pearl would have been so proud of me!

Too bad my little plan backfired.  Momma was more mad than embarrassed as she swore up and down that I wouldn't get any treats until spring.  Oh, woe is me.


  1. Poor Tiffy. Can't imagine that your "gift" was appreciated. Treats will start again real soon, trust me.

    drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  2. Oh, Tiffy! You know who else is very proud of you?! Brigitte! She is the worst in car rides, plus she loves to poop in vets offices. She is very happy you did her proud. Talk about bad in the car. We took a ride to get our nails did, and for a little walk in the park yesterday. Brigitte was sooooo bad, that when Dad was deciding if he wanted to go to curly tails pugs and kisses today for his birthday, he said no. He said he didn't want to spend two hours in the car with badly behavin' B

  3. Tiffy you look like a sweet angel! We got your card in the mail the other day...we were so surprised and happy to see your face on the card. Happy valentines day.

  4. Rock on, Tiffy. We poop on the vet's floor too. And on the only rug in the place, not the acres of linoleum either.
    Mom's learned a trick with Isabelle who is a nightmare in the car. She brings something really yummy to chew on to keep her quiet. She gets Healthy Edible bones for short trips and bully sticks for longer ones. Worked like a charm yesterday on the way to the vet and even during acupuncture. Maybe that will work for you!
    And we want to make sure your pugjamas fit okay. If not, let us know and we'll take care of them.

  5. Oh no, Tiffy! No treats??? That's just not right! I think it would have been different if your Daddy had been there. He'd maybe even get you some Popeye's!

  6. Oh Tiffy
    Jeepers,, I cannot live without treats! And I don't think you can either - right?
    I hear my moms complain about my crazies in the car- and I just know you cannot be half as bad as me!
    Once I pooped on the floor in the veys office too- yes, it was to get even.
    We pugs just gotta do- what we gotta do- to take care of business.
    That is sad- the vet you liked is gone... I hope the new vet is a good one.

  7. oh tiffy! i better make sure priscilla can't read this! we're going to the vet on tuesday and she better behave herself! you sure got your mom back by pooping in the floor!

  8. So sorry about your vet. Its so important to have a good vet you trust, no wonder you were out of sorts

  9. Tiffy - just use your most pathetic look and your momma will be giving treats to you in no time!

    We would also like to say thank you for the Valentine's day card - it is very cute :)

    Pugs & Kisses,

    Yoda, Brutus & Ellie

    1. Wow, no treats until Spring?! That's insane, all you had your shots, new vet and she wouldn't roll down the window?! You poor pug :) Bless your heart.

  10. Come on! No treats at the vet? That's not right! We don't blame you for pooping ~ serves them right. Except we're sad that Momma got mad at you :3(

  11. hi tiffy!

    oh it sounds like you kept your momma very busy at the vet. :)

    i am amazed at how many photos she was able to get.

    when i go, it is all my momma can do is keep me from pulling every which way as there are so many smells to follow!

    you are the cutest girl in the world and i bet your momma gives you a treat today which is waaaaay before spring time!

  12. Tiffy, I am so proud! I always like to poop at the vet just in case he wants to get a look at my poo to see how healthy I am! We are just being helpful!!

    I got your sweet Valentine! You look like such a pretty diva on it! I love it!!!!

  13. Tiffy, I think your momma may be exaggerating a bit given how sweet and innocent you look in all those pictures. They are some of the best photos of you, I just love all of your adorable expressions! And I would've totally pooped in the office after not getting any treats...after all, isn't that why we go?!?

  14. Heee heee~ Pooping on the floor~
    Oh, by the way, where do you get those harness/collars? They are all so cute and pink.... I think I am gonna ask mama new one soon....

    You are so tiny and cute.
    I used to tiny and cute, but I am now little heavy and cute...hence less treat : (


  15. Yikes! Sounds like your mom means business. Pardon the pun. Better lay on the cuteness really thick! Boo on the vet not giving you treats. They should totally know better.


  16. Obviously a tough day for you Tif but you handled it well!! Don't worry too much, your Mom will cave soon and it will be treat city!


  17. Happy Happy Valentine's Day!
    We LOVE you!

    Melissa and Archie

  18. Tiffy I am sure you were just showing your appreciation of the good care they gave you by leaving them that little gift! Mom said she would have had to give you a treat for just being so cute all the time.

    Happy Valentines Day!

  19. We are sorry that you had to go to the vet, but we are glad that the vet that you saw was nice and took good care of you! We lost our vet too, but our new vet is very good so we are ok with this. Too bad about the treats though!
