Lincoln & Scout's CERF Antics

Lincoln and Scout had their annual CERF eye exams on Saturday. This year, I took them into the office in their new doggie stroller. Of course, the minute we got into the waiting room, they went NUTS, climbing over each other and trying to jump out of the stroller and wanting to meet the entire staff (but they could not - I had them tightly tethered to it!)

Two staffers came over to put drops in their eyes to dilate them. Of course, that made them even more nuts because they thought they were going to get some kisses and attention. As we tried to hold their heads straight, the one woman with the drops said, "One for the for the for the floor!" as the drops flew everywhere. After that, we were quickly shuttled into the exam room. Soon, someone came in to take my credit card payment in advance so I could make a quick getaway afterwards.

The veterinary ophthalmologist was very nice and did their exam while they were in the stroller. It worked out fine, except Scout (being jealous!) kept getting in the way when he was examining Lincoln.

After we came out and I was waiting for my copy of the paperwork, a couple came out of another room with their bulldog. The woman took one look at my boys in the stroller (still crazy, of course) and she said to her husband, "Honey, pick up the dog" meaning her dog, of course. I assured her Lincoln and Scout would not be able to get out of the stroller as her husband took their dog to their car.

Most of the staff there seemed pretty immune to them, except one woman who just loved them and came over for lots of kisses (wet ones!) and hugs. They were in heaven!

All in all, I think it went much better than last year, when Lincoln decided to bark at the other dogs while we were waiting in the waiting area. And then he peed in the exam room.

I can't wait until next year! Ha ha.

They look so cute in their stroller. Havanese can seem wild but it's only cause they want to lay with anyone and anything! Good thing it's only once a year lol.

OMG they look so cute in their stroller. I guess I may have to get one for my two, it makes it so much easier to get around.

I love the stroller and the dogs in it. Thanks for the story. I am dreading my CERF trip with the two of them. Last time I just had Kodi and that was a horror. He kept trying to escape while waiting for his eyes to dilate.

Jane, it was hilarious to read Lincoln and Scout's antics. Thanks for the chuckles! They look so adorable in their stroller. I can't imagine anyone thinking Havs could be dangerous around any dog, let alone a bulldog!

Best, Poornima
