Today Rubes had to have a bladder x-ray and a sterile urine sample taken directly from her bladder via syringe. I was holding her straight while our vet, Drew, took the sample. Side-note - at the moment Drew is hobbling around on a broken ankle, and has not stopped practicing - he carried Ruby into the x-ray on virtually one leg - legend! Anyway, he jiggled her around a bit on her back, to get her organs all settled (lol) and inserted the needle. When clear yellow urine came up into the syringe on his first try he muttered, `Honestly, I am a god. I just don't think that I get the appreciation I deserve'. I just laughed out loud - he really cracks me up. And according to us he really is that special, because he's looked after our babies since tiny puppyhood and loves them as much as we do!! If only everyone could have such a wonderful vet!
