Routine Emergency

This morning we had an appointment emergency!  When we woke up mom started rushing around saying "Hurry! Hurry!, We have to take the boys to the dogtur!"  Now when me and Stanley heard that we were definitely concerned! "Mom", I barked, "why do we have to go to the dogtur?"  Mom shouted back at me that we had the "routines".  When me and Stanley heard that, we looked at each other and I asked Stanley what "routines" were.  Stanley said, "I don't know Brother but I think it sounds bad."  After thinking about it for a minute I decided we must have caught some "routines" when we were on vacation and swimming in the river.  OMD!  Me and Stanley got the routines!

So mom and dad hurried around and got ready to take us to the dogtur.  Me and Stanley just crossed our paws that it wasn't too late and that we could be cured of the "routines".  I thought maybe I was getting a fever and Stanley said he was feeling dizzy.  We knew it was just a short matter of time and we'd be goners!

We didn't go to our Dr. Eddy dogtur.  We went to the Air Force Base dogtur cuz mom said they were better for the "routines" cuz it costs less.  "What?", I cried, "We are dying from the "routines" and you're concerned about being on the cheap?"  It was so confusing to me but I thought maybe the "routines" had caused my thinking to be foggy.  

When we got to the dogtur's office we rushed in and I ran up to the counter.  


The lady there didn't come rushing over.  I think she did NOT realize every second counts when you have the "routines".


I wasn't getting their attention so Stanley used his loud voice.



Finally the technician came over.  Instead of giving us emergency care or an operation or something, she said we had to be weighed!  "Good grief people", I cried, "The "routines" are spreading all over our bodies and you want to know how much we weigh?"  It just didn't make sense!  It felt like I was getting itchy.  The "routines" is NOT a disease I wish on any doggie ever!!

Finally they took us into a little room.  You will NOT believe what they did.  First of all the dogtur told me to bend over and cough (I told you it was a military dogtur).  Then she took some of my blood and sprayed stuffs up my nose!  The blood part wasn't so bad but the nose spray was just rude!  But I was willing to do it if it could save my life from the "routines".  All this time Stanley is feeling weaker and weaker.  I could tell he was fading fast.  "Hang on Brother". I cried out to him.  Pretty soon I got off the table and the dogtur did the same stuffs to my brother.  I hoped it wasn't too late!

After the exam operation was done on Stanley, we both got treats so that made us feel better.  Actually, we started feeling a lot better!  The dogtur must have cured us in time and saved us from the certain death from the "routines".  Then just as me and Stanley were talking about what a close brush with death we had, mom explained that it was just a routine dogtur visit and that we were 100% healthy all along.  Now I felt silly.

Gotta watch out for those 'routines' - they can be mighty scary! Abby has the routines, too, and she's not happy about it! Our Mom, too, seems to be unconcerned about it. Clearly she doesn't realize the urgency; hopefully this post will serve as a public service announcement for her!

You had us worried. We could feel those routines just movin' around in our bodies....you know, whenever you read about a medical condition.

Glad you're 100%! Now it's time for another long walk to celebrate...and a treat.

Well 'The Routines` could be doing the rounds so doods you never know. We think it is pretty catching as we have had 'The Routnes" too. Phew at least none of us have got it bad. We hear it is quite nasty if it takes hold. You got to be starved to cure it we heard.
Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Oh the routines are very curable. To be on the safe side from a possible relapse, just eat more treats like u did after the exam.

Hey Doods, You always make me smile and laugh. Hunter doesn't like going to the dogtur either! He has his routines next month, after we get back from our vacation and before we move. He will probably feel insulted that it has to happen then. Hope you have a pawsome day!
Noreen, Hunter and Lily

KB Bear said...

Your mom was lying. It was the treats that cured you! You need even more of them, don't you?

FinleytheWestie said...

At furst I thought ya said ya had da rude teens and I didn't unnerstand how's a dogtor could make them teens have better manners and how their bein' rude was makin' ya ill... Annoyed, yeah, but sick?
Then I re-read it...... you explained it and now I feels silly, too..

Wesley McPoodleton said...

So glad you guys survived that bout of 'routines'! Sounds like it was a pretty close call!

I sure hope I never get the routines. But wait, I get the routines every year. They have to be Contagious! Quarantine for Murphy and Stanley, no more routines for the rest of us.
Thanks for being a friend
