I felt so bad for Miss Chloe this morning as she was SOOOOO stressed out!! Going to the vet or the groomer is a very, very stressful activity for her. The reason for the visit to the vet today was her vaccinations. Good thing we only need those every three years! I also had the vet take a look at the growth in her ear but she absolutely believes that it is not something to worry about. Bichons are prone to fatty cysts and when the vet drained it, clear liquid came out. To have the growth removed would be a very traumatic experience as she would have to go under general anasthesia. I do not like to put my dog through that if I don't have to. Especially because of her age...she will be 11 in January. So, for now, we are taking a wait and see attitude.
Chloe does not like to leave her home turf. If she could stay at home or in the RV all the time...she would be fine with that. Even if we try to go for a walk outside of our yard, all she wants to do is turn around and go back home.
I guess it is a good thing we have a fair amount of land!
The funny thing is that Chloe is totally different when we are on an RV trip...she doesn't mind walking over to the lake to check out the ducks...or exploring different parks we might be in. She's like a different dog!
