Yesterday momma took me to the vet! No worries here, I always get tons of cuddles and noms there. Sure, why not?
This time it was the man person vet. He's very nice and talks in the most glorious voice. I don't even know what he is saying half the time because his vocals are sort of hypnotic to the Mango.
First thing he wanted to do was check out my bigfoot which, as you can see, is much less big than it used to be. Sure the toes are a little large, but you wouldn't even notice if you weren't looking for it. How cool is that?
But then, this is where it gets strange....
He starts in all rubbing me in weird ways and pinching and poking me and mostly it felt good but sometimes it felt a little peculiar for sure. He even made momma rub and poke at me. Momma said, "Oh, Mango, you are getting there's a puke tick massage and a-choo pressures."
Almost a WTF moment, am I right? And no photos because I guess the vet dude's voice kind of hypnotized momma as well and made her forget the flashy was in her pocket.
Then he gave momma this picture with my name on it and instructions on how to do the there's a puke tick and a-choo on me at home.
You can bigify for sure.
That looks nothing like me! I hope those are the correct instructions.
I got kind of scared when I saw it says hip displace ya, but the vet dude said, "Oh, no, Mango, you do not have the hip displace ya, just the arthritis." Phew.
You know what else? Doggies have things called limp nodes. Yuh, not kidding. Limp nodes all over the place and now momma knows where they all are and how to feel them to see if they swell up or anything (the Mango, being a gentleman, will not share that limp nodes becoming firm and swollen makes him think of something a bit, well, off color, hehehe).
I'm not sure what that was all about, but the good news is that momma is supposed to rub me every single day as prescribed. Wow! That is totally better than taking medicine. Oh yeah!
You know what else? Remember when I won the Against All Odds award in Honey's big Dancing with the Dog Stars competition?
Well, I got a certificate and a medal and this awesome trophy. Yuh, for sure.
Check it out. This is ME showing off how handsome I look with my medal around my large and barely fitting through the ribbon neck. And the wee little trophy.
A proud moment for the Mango. In fact I made a little movie. Watch it here.
Did you see that disco ball spinning? Sadly, I am still not supposed to bounce even though my elephant foot is feeling better. But pretty soon I will be dancing again! You know it!
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. Remember that bump on my tail? Yeah, well, vet guy said, "if it were anyplace else we would remove it." But then he said because it is right where my tail comes out of my large and not wanting to be sliced open bottom it is not possible to remove it so I will just have to live with it. It doesn't hurt or anything, but it is kind of big and makes momma have worried face, but the good news it is bee nine, whatever that means.
