Oscar the Weiner

Oscar the wiener dog got a clean bill of health from the vet today. Well, almost. He does have a case of ear mites. I have to put drops in his ear twice a day for the next ten days. He weighed in at a whopping 4.5 pounds. He got a shot and he was a big boy. The vet laughed and said that the males are usually the biggest whiners when Oscar whimpered as the needle went in. I was quick to respond that male canines were not that different from their human counterparts. He graciously smiled and shook his head in agreement. I may have to invest in a headache treatment tonight the vet said sometimes shots can make them a bit sore and whimpery. He'll go back in three weeks for more preventative shots. He did great this time, so I have no worries for next time.
