Luka goes to the vet

Yeah, you can imagine what that’s like!

Please note that sweet, handsome Dr. Heins is sitting on Luka in the corner. Need I say anything else?

This was the calmest moment of tonight’s visit, actually. We were in for Luka’s yearly exam and shots. He was weighed. He’s now on a diet. Blood was drawn. That required the in-the-corner-tackle by the vet. His ears were cleaned of their yeasty goop. There’s medicine for that.

Everyone survived.

We’re new to this vet practice, more or less, since Luka. I love Dr. Heins because he loves Labs and knows them inside and out. He takes his time with us and humors Luka’s goofyness. Plus, he’s extra generous with the cookies which makes Luka really really like him.

Anyone want to guess how much Luka weighs now?

  1. KatDoc: Ha! Still too low. (He doesn’t get near enough exercise.)

    This new comment thing is supposed to be easier? (shrug)

    Sorry to report that Doc Heins wears a band on his left hand.


  2. I’m guessing he’s 95lbs. He’s a big ol’ goofy lab. My labs were always good for the vet (except my first one — the dog I learned on! 🙂 ) but that’s because they had to learn to be good in the show ring so they were used to being examined. So, I recommend you bait them like we do with show dogs. 🙂

  3. Laughing at Luka at the vet! So funny! We’ve all had visits like that. Thank goodness with vets and their sense of humor.

    I’m surprised Luka is on a diet! But, I’m guessing his weight should be about 75. Perhaps he’s 85?

  4. Well… Susan’s the closest! Luka weighs… gulp… 102 lbs.

    The vet says he needs to lose about 10 or so.

    (Too many cookies and not enough exercise.)
