Going to the vet's office

We went to the vet today, and Lady didn't enjoy being probed and prodded. She did lick the chin of the young man who was holding her on the table (I was jealous, of course), but she often licks people who get close.

Her heart rate was slow (I don't know how slow; they didn't say), but her blood work was good. It was a decent result with a 15-year-old dog.

They had three cats in the vet's office. The two females on the desk ignored me, but the big tom cat came over and was friendly. He rubbed over my legs and let me pet him. He'd never done that before, but Lady was having her blood taken at this point, so she wasn't around.

Note: Lady passed on Sept. 17, 2016.
