No Post Today

This was going to be about Kit Carson, another dude who comes up a lot, but no time today on account of I have to go to the vet. Bernie always says where we’re going and this morning he gave me a nice pat, then ran his hand slowly over my back, maybe felt around a bit, and said, “Going to the vet, today, Chet.” The vet? Don’t like going to the vet. The vet herself – name of Amy – is all right, a big round woman with a nice voice and careful hands, but that steel table? Don’t care for it at all, and I always start shaking the moment I enter the waiting room. That’s not like me, I know, but I just can’t help it.

“Chet? Come on, big guy.”

Right now I’m under Bernie’s bed.

    You'll be OK big guy… think of getting a biscuit after the visit.

    Chet? Did you and Bernie catch that Tom Selleck movie where he played the sheriff of a small town? One of your tribe – the nation within a nation – looked like he was the sheriff's partner. But the sheriff didn't talk to the golden about the case the way Bernie talks to you. Too bad…It took that sheriff forever to catch the perp.

    Don't know that one but Bernie will get it. We like watching movies, especially ones with the nation within.

    I am surprised that Bernie was silly enough to even mention the V word although I must say that my animals seem to disappear even if I am just thinking the word and not saying it. Psychic or psycho? The shaking is bad enough but you didn't mention the shedding. I wear my oldest clothes to the vet as I come home wearing half of my dog's fur. Perhaps there is a steak in your future unless you happen to have a vet who thinks a dog's ribs should show– or at least be able to be felt.

    How was your trip to the vet? My mom took me to the dog park today and then to the vet. It was ok. I turn on the charm and they give me lots of treats. All in all, it was a good day. I hope yours was too. My mom and I, we love you Chet. Thanks for the book and the blog.
