This is a feature article written by Dr. Cooper's daughter to give us some insight into a trip to the vet. Thanks Anna Kate for writing such a wonderful blog!

          MMMMMMMMMM. That was a yummy dinner! Oh! Sorry, I forgot to introduce myself. Hi, I’m Annie. I live in Houston, Texas, and I don’t mean to brag, but I might have been on the cover of dog monthly last month. That’s right. My fans just can’t get enough of me! I mean, I don’t blame them but the star life is just so tiring! Look, Steven Schnauzerberg, I appreciate the offer, but Pug Cruz and I just don’t get along! So anyways, I’ve been in movies, photoshoots, TV shows, but I’ve never gotten….uh…..what’s the word….that’s it… Nervous!!! I’ve never gotten nervous. But I got this awful feeling when my mom told me we’re going to the worst place a dog could ever dream of going…the Vet. I have never had this feeling before, but I’m so nervous I couldn’t even finish my doggy ice cream! “Annie, where are you? Time for bed”. Uh oh. Mommy’s calling me. Well, see you tomorrow.


          “Good morning Annie! Want to go on a little drive?” My mom said waking me up from my dream about chocolate. Wait a second… I know what she’s doing! We’re going to the vet aren’t we? No way I’m going! “I’ll give you a treat…” GOTTA GO! As we’re in the car, getting closer and closer to the vet, my paws start to sweat more and more. When we arrive, a nice lady walks me and my mom into an exam room. When the vet comes in, he looks in my eyes and ears, looks in my mouth and checks my pretty teeth, he listen to my heart and feels my tummy, he feels all my legs and paws and asks me to lay on my back so he can look at my tummy. (Which, I’m not going to lie, it felt pretty good). Then he watched me walk. When the nice lady walks me and my mom back out to the front of the vet’s office, she gives me a treat! No way! I love this place!

              On the way home, I started thinking, maybe the vet isn’t so scary after all! I got a treat, a tummy rub, and tons of people told me how cute I was (which I already knew, but it’s always refreshing to hear). Next time I go to the vet I won’t be scared at all! In fact, I’ll be super excited! Ugh, sorry, got to go. Steven’s calling again.
