Here’s Lois on her way to see Dr. Morrison at Colony Animal Clinic.
- As purebred-princess types are prone to do, Lois has developed allergies, and feels the need to gnaw on her tail. Just like princesses everywhere, right? At least the pup variety of royalty.
She’s always so happy to go visit Dr. Morrison, totally oblivious to all the shots and other “procedures” she’s had there. Lois only remembers it as the place to get treats, which reminds me of one of my favoriteÂ Far Side cartoons . . .
There’s great reading material in the Veterinarian’s waiting room.
And a fearless office cat named Zena, who dreads no dog in town. She doesn’t flinch as beast after beast enters the waiting room. Even humans don’t dare ask for Zena’s sunny window seat.
Lois still didn’t understand. She wanted to get up on the examination table, confusing it once again with a dinner table.
Lois weighed in at 29.2 pounds, which means she had gained three pounds since her last visit.
Lois and I had our doubts about the scale’s accuracy, so when no one was looking, I tested it myself, and sure enough it was a few pounds too heavy for me as well. They should check on their faulty equipment. Lois and I were not amused.
Dr. Bill Morrison came in to see his favorite Beagle. We’ve known Bill for years and he has cared for all our pets.
And then the bad news came. Lois had chewed her tail until it was in danger of falling off. Well . . . almost. To allow it proper time to heal, she had to wear the Cone of Shame. Krystal assisted Dr. Morrison and Lois didn’t know what to think.
But after a few weeks of taking her medicine and wearing the disgraceful cone, Lois Lane was back for her check-up with a beautifully healed, fluffy tail.
Here she is in the waiting room for her check-up, and although her tail isn’t visible, I assure you, it didn’t fall off.
All’s tail that ends well.
