Sharkey Goes to the Vet
Posted by Sharkey
I've been feeling a bit under the weather, which probably is an exaggeration, since the weather around here has been horrid - cold, windy, and rainy, with a lot of snow on the way. Anyway, I was coughing quite a bit and it was suggested that I might have swallowed something that got caught somewhere. I needed to go see Dr. Marty at Smith Ridge Veterinary Center. It's never fun going to the doctor, but this visit was different. I got to see a whole new side of myself, or perhaps I should say - inside of myself!
1 Where's Francesca? Isn't she coming?
2 It's just me? OK, I'll settle in for the ride and try to be brave.
3 Here we are again at Smith Ridge Veterinary Center.
4 All right! Let's just get this over with.
5 Hi everyone! Sharkey's back!
6 Dr. Marty has a wall of autographed photos of his celebrity pet owners. Where's Martha's picture?
7 I've always liked this clock with the wagging tail. It's a good distraction.
8 And this guy is goofy, but cute.
9 Why do doctors make patients wait so long? It's humiliating standing here naked!
10 Finally - Lou, the veterinary technician, came for me. They said something about an X-ray.
11 I was taken into this cold looking room with this strange white table. I was scared. Lou told me not to worry.
12 Look! There I am. You can see my spine and my intestines.
13 And there are my ribs and front leg. You can even see my microchip up on my back!
14 And there's my heart and lungs. Everything looks great.
