I had no doubt!!!!

Izzy here!!!!

I just don’t understand it, I could have told them I was perfect if they just would have asked!!!! Today Mom and Dad took me to the vet for a check up. Apparently to become a registered therapy dog, the vet must poke, look and touch me all over. Well, after Doc did all that he gave me the go ahead to become a registered therapy dog. You know, all they had to do is ask me and I would have signed the papers for them. Humans, they just don’t listen. Woof woof woof woof!!!!

I did hear Doc say that he would like me to lose 6 more pounds. Oh my goodness, I already lost 9 pounds over the summer. How much more walking can we do? I have noticed that the size of my biscuits have become a whole lot smaller, at first I was a little baffeled by the size, but I am ok with it. My girlish figure is showing now.

Anyhow, I think Mom is going to start walking me at a faster pace. I think it is so she doesn’t get cold, I know the temperature sure has dropped lately. Oh I also hope she takes me to that field where I can just run around. You know I am a golden retriever, but I don’t retrieve anything. Mom can toss something, and I just watch it. It just seems silly to get something that someone has tossed when they are the ones that tossed it. Ted would retrieve for Mom, but only if she tossed it in the water so he could swim.

Overall, I could have saved Mom and Dad some money if they had just asked me my condition. I don’t think the Delta Society would have accepted a paw print for the signature though. My next appointment is at the beauty salon on next Saturday.

Until next time,

Izzy, signing out.

    Beauty salon? Why? That makes as little sense as the vet visit, Isabella. Your name has “Bella” in it which means “beauty.” Don’t they understand you don’t need beauty? You are beautiful now! Don’t let them do anything weird to you like curl your tail or put ribbons around your ears. A bandanna is ok, I guess, if it doesn’t hide your pretty chest.

    I’m so happy you are ready to go now! Keep us posted on what it’s like to be a therapy dog. I hope it’s fun.

    Love, Dakota

      Thanks for the concern. The beauty salon will do my nails too. I just need trim. According to Mom the rules state that I need to have a bath. We all know I am clean and all, but apparently there are others who need a bath, so we all have to have one. I will cooperate, all in honor of Ted.

    Izzy, I knew you were in perfect health, maybe they should have checked with me first too! Congrats on your clean bill of health. You’ll be a registered therapy dog in no time!!

    I knew you were beautiful as well as well trained all along. You always look so nice when you have been groomed – bandana and a flowing tail. Love you

    Izzy, you are going to make a beautiful therapy dog! Chili Dawg had the same belief as you about retrieving (unless it was his Lambie doodle or rubber chicken), he would look at you as if to say, “you’re the one who threw it, why don’t you go it?”. Finchy will retrieve until your arm falls off. Enjoy the beauty salon and all the people who will fawn all over you.

  9.   Izzy, Ted's sister Says:

    Yeah, if you want something why would you throw it away from you. Just does not make sense to me. Maybe that is why I am the voice of reason. LOL

    Oh I will certainly enjoy the beauty salon. I just love to be touched.
