A Cute Puncture!

I went with my big brother herbie for his 'a cute puncture' today. But strangely, although the needle puncture his head, I don't see anything cute about it. (Herbie: I thought we went over this already? It's Acupuncture!)

We have to wait for our turn at the vet place. We waited a long time coz we went there early. It was boring waiting.

Waiting...


Then I saw something on the counter!

A resident Meow!


I tried to say Hi to the meow but she showed me her teeth. Maybe she's trying to say she got cleaner teeth? She didn't wanna come down and play so I became bored again.

Bored... and still waiting...


Then I tell my big brother Herbie, don't be scared, let's hold paw paw for support.

My big brother Herbie is very brave. He's not scared at all. He didn't even move a muscle when they did the a cute puncture on him. They poke him in the head...

and poke poke him somemore in the head... and other parts of the body

Poke, poke, poke


The needle looks big in the peek-ture, but it's actually very thin at the other end.

The vet says the needles will make Herbie more energetic. I hope so.... then he can play with me again. He also say he will give Herbie some herbs to eat to boost his immunity, appetite and control his bad tummyache. I try to ask him why give Herbie herbs when Herbie is already a big herb? The humans sometimes call him herb, herb.

As the herb (herbie?) need to be prepared specifically for each dog, we can only collect the herb during our next visit. And I think Scuba is coming as well, to treat his itchy paws. I wonder if Scuba's medicine will be called 'scub'?

We hope a cute puncture makes your brother all full of energy again. And we hope you don't have to go to the boring place too many times.

Helios,

Do you mind helping me check out whether the vet is able to help with itch paws? As my sister still cant find out the reason why i have such itch paws. Can I also have the vet's contact number and address? Thanks.
