Why can't we stop at the vet?

by Valerie Barker


We run every morning with Mom. We usually take a different route about every day of the week because Mom wants to make sure we know our way around the 5 mile radius from our house, just in case we ever find ourselves out without her on leash with us. She hopes that doesn't happen, probably because she couldn't find her way home without us.

Anyway, today, we took the route that takes us past our vet's office. Mom thinks it is funny how we always want to stop. When she was a kid, her dogs hated the vet. I guess their vet didn't hand out treats, tummy rubs, and ear scratches.

Also, Mom is a horrible simultaneous videographer and runner.
