I’m Mort, and this is my report.
The weekend started out fine, friends! A new park opened in our neighborhood and I got to check it out on opening day (a full Mort Report to come once I discover all its nooks and crannies!)
But the next day I felt so sick. I has a belly ache, and I let my humans know by stretching my back legs and doing my best downward dog. Then I puked twice on our morning walk and sat down! Then my girl made the worry face at me. I hate that face, it makes me put my ears back and make a worry face too. It looks kinda like this:
The girl puts on worry face because I felt just like this, then got so sick and had a close call a couple of months ago. I lost six inches of my intestines, and got them sewed up again. So the girl says I’m a lucky dog but she really worries about me a lot even though I’m so lucky.
So the girl puts me on high alert
I guess this is kind of like code red. I’m an adventure dog, a stunt dog, I live for life and I know these codes. There are codes for fun and good, codes for danger, codes for lots of things. But high alert code red means that the girl checks me all over, and looks at me with the worry face, and then sometimes starts to leak out of her eyes (I lick it up like a good dog). So I wents under the table, and then the girl picked up the phone and I think she called “the place.” But then she said “car ride” and that has to be good, right?
We gots a car ride! But it wasn’t for fun
So the girl took me to the spot I kinda know quite well: the vets. I’m only 3 but this is our fourth time in the emergency one! There was a big man, and he seemed quite nice but then he felt me all over, and checked my temperature. That’s no fun. But then he put on a rubber glove, and you will NEVER believe what he did next! OK, this is a family blog so the girl says I shouldn’t tell you, but I’m just saying that it was really not cool. Not one bit.
And then the humans put me on my side and did what the girl says was an ultrasound to look at my insides. Everyone said my insides looked normal! So they gave me a needle to stop feeling sick and pukey, and we gots to go home!
But I gots so sleepy because of the medicine I got, and my tummy still hurts. I let the girl know because I still stretch my legs. And the girl gave me a super special little treat and I didn’t even want to eats it. So the girl still makes worry face at me and has leaky eyes, and has me in my “house”.
So my report is short, cause I am so sleepy, but I will hopefully feel better soon my friends! I have lots of fun things to do with the skateboard the girl got me, and I have a date to jump off a dock with my dog friends. I gots to feel better soon so I can do THINGS!
