I survived my busy week at work. Sorry we haven't been around to comment on everyone's blogs, hope you can understand. Brutus survived too, although he is a bit miffed at me. Not only are we falling behind on blogging again, but Brutus had a lot more time in his crate and a lot less walkies (I think we only logged 12 miles this week, compared to our usual 25)... but he survived too. I'll be making it up to him though, as we'll be together all weekend at an agility trial! Gotta work hard to play hard, know what I mean??
Before we call it a week, how about a little update from our roving Frenchie, Flat Brutus? So what's he been up to this week, I hear you ask. Well...
All those travels abroad can be kinda hard on the little guy, so it's fortunate that his most recent host was our friend, and the real Brutus' vet, Dr. Lori. Flat Brutus had a great time tagging along with her all day at her veterinary practice.
Right off the bat, she made sure that Flat Brutus got a thorough exam. Need to verify he's still fit to travel, especially after having visited all those foreign countries!
After all that serious stuff was out of the way, Flat Brutus got to relax and have a little fun at the clinic. He helped comfort a very special patient during their appointment. Flat Brutus was privileged to meet a very special patient, an FBRN Frenchie! Carlton is one BIG Frenchie boy (almost 40 lbs!!) and was just recently rescued, shown here with his foster mom. Hope he can find a forever home soon!
Brutus did so well with assisting her during that appointment, Dr. Lori assigned Flat Brutus to keep another little Frenchie patient company as he recovered from a minor procedure.
Next Flat Brutus got to help out at the hydrotherapy tank. I'm sure this German Shepard appreciated his encouragement!
All his clincial duties taken care of, he headed out to the front desk to help confirm appointments for the next day. Apparently Flat Brutus makes a good administrative assistant too!!
His exciting day at the clinic wound to a close, and Flat Brutus got to go home with Dr. Lori to relax for the evening. He met the whole gang at French Bulldogs d'Assisi, and really warmed to to this pretty gal, Gena.
Gena is a new mom and was a little worried that he Flat Brutus was just going to be another mouth to feed. No worries Gena, he's just visiting! Now, about those puppies....
Flat Brutus also got to meet Gena's pups, almost 6 weeks old. He felt right at home with the little Frenchies, as they are almost the same size as him (but a lot pudgier BOL!). They must have liked him too, as they shared their dinner with Flat Brutus!
Thanks to Dr. Lori for taking such good care of Flat Brutus. It's good to know that he passed his exam with flying colors, since he has a LONG way to go on his travels! You never know where he'll turn up next week!
