enter site I had to go to the doctors this week for shots. They really hurt! But, my Mom reminds me often of the importance of bringing me to the doctor once or twice a year so that I stay healthy. One of the shots was a Proheart Injection. This shot protects me for six months from getting heartworm, a nasty infection that can attack a dog’s lungs. My Mom makes sure I get this shot twice a year so that I am fully protected from this dangerous disease. Please remind your parents to bring you to the doctor for a Proheart Injection. It can really save your life.

As my Mom put my leash back on, she looked very surprised when another Mom said to her, “What a well-behaved dog”. She gave the other woman what I thought was a very weak smile. I didn’t give it much thought as we were busy walking to the front desk to check out. My Mom spoke with the woman at the desk who gave me a big smile and then we walked outside to the car. My Mom was checking her phone so I sat down and waited for her to open the car door. I love to jump so this is my favorite part of the car ride – the jump in! Another woman walking towards the front door smiled at us and again said, “oh, he is so well-behaved”. My Mom’s head jerked up in surprise and she said, “thanks”, but again, her response was a little puzzling. My Mom finally looked at me and said, “Well Bailey, we certainly don’t hear that a lot”. I looked at her and said, “uh, what?”
If I am honest with myself (and with you), I guess I can understand my Mom’s reaction, as I realize that I have not always been a well-behaved puppy when I have gone to the doctor. I am easily excited and high energy by nature and in the past I have run around the waiting room like crazy, dragging my Mom by my leash, jumping up on people and other dogs and once even lifted a woman’s skirt with my nose! Wow, was my Mom embarrassed! She really yelled at me that time!
But, now that I am four years old, I feel that I have really calmed down. I know my Dad is always telling my Mom how much I have changed. I know that I feel happier when I make my parents proud. I hope I behave so well in public in the future that when someone compliments my Mom on my behavior, she will just say, “thank you, he is a well-behaved dog”.
