FOREVER YOUNG/The Day at The Vet

As some of you might know, I have two dogs a Westie and a Westie Poo..

Ralph is  5years old and Clyde is 3 years old.

My dog Clyde was not feeling good. He wouldn't eat anything, and was having problems well, we won't say, and that's when we knew it was time to take him to the vet.. Only problem, the last two vets I took him to, I didn't like, so we had to search for another one.  And yes we did find one.

So off to the vet my husband and Clyde went.... and of course I waited at home since I'm the biggest coward when it comes to doctors, any doctors...well that's just me, but it doesn't mean I don't like them, it's just that I want to stay as far away from them as I can..  Now you can just imagine how I was, when I took my kids to the doctors.

Well  back to the story... I didn't have to wait long.

My husband said Clyde had a slight fever, and the Vet gave him some pills to take, '1/2 tablet in the morning and at 1/2 at night, for five days... And  wouldn't you know, after the second day, he was starting to act like  Clyde once again... but that's not the end of my story.

While my husband was at the vet with Clyde, he made an appointment for our other dog Ralph.  Only when the vet asked my husband what our other dog's name was, he said  with a straight face LUMPLARD.. well needless to say the vet almost fell off his chair laughing. .

Of course. I  was the one who nicknamed him that, since he started putting on a lot of weight, which I know the vet will say something about that,  but what can I say, Ralph, Lumplard,  Ralph, loves to EAT..

Now after this hysterical episode was over, the girl at the front desk asked my husband, when would he like to make an appointment for our other dog, and then asked for his  name, and again with a straight face my husband said, L U M P  L A R D.

The girl didn't know how to respond, then said, oh, it's spelled like lumplard... because honestly, I never heard of such a name, and started  cracking up....poor Ralph..

So now imagine this.  When my husband brings Ralph to the vets this week, and he's in the examination room, and the vet walks in and says, " Hi Lumplard how are you today?" Could you keep a straight face.. I don't think so.., and  how do you think my dog will react... you guessed it, he'll just look at him with this perplexed look on his face, and wonder why he's calling him LumpLard,  when his name is Ralph, and probably think the vet is somewhat confused..

Well I guess the vet will get the hint, when Lumplard doesn't respond, or give him a kiss... and then we'll all be in a

So for me this soon to be visit with the vet, will always be FOREVER YOUNG
