Ticket to ride!

I had the misfortune of a trip to the vet this morning. Don't worry it was nothing serious, they sent my Mum a post card to tell her my vaccines were due this month.

It's a bit of a drive to our vet, 37km / 23 miles but Dr. Zwamborn is super smart, not a puppy propaganda pusher, he actually likes animals and he doesn't drain Mum's wallet ....which is good for me 'cause that's more money to spend on me!

He said I am 56 pounds of lean mean bully handsomness! Duh! He checked my eyes, ears, nose, toes and the jewels! Mum told him I am going on vacation in a few weeks and asked if there was anything to be concerned about. I am going on an airplane!! Dr. Z said I have excellent breathing, and since I travel well in the car (I fall asleep by the end of the street), and because Mum booked direct, nighttime flights, I'll be just fine!

Mum decided I needed a brushing before the vet, so she busted out this mitt she found at HomeSense. It's kind of like a lint brush but it works while she pats me. She says alone it gets off about half the furs, but it perfect for finishing off after a good scour with the zoom groom.

Still feeling a little icky from my shots, off to nap on the patio.

Stay cool furiends!


  1. How cool that you get to fly the friendly skies, Finn! We can't wait to hear how it goes!
    Shots make us feel under the weather too.

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. Nice vet visit! I wonder where you are going on vacation??

  3. Cool! I've only been on a plane once but I was very young then. Have a great trip!

  4. Please go on Pet Airlines so you can fly in the cabin, unless you are staying with mom. It is VERY dangerous for us bullies to go in with the luggage.
    Have fun, and by the way its all muscle

  5. Sorry about the vet visit. I'm glad the vet said you were in great health though!

    Congrats on your vacay, I hope you have a safe flight and a wonderful time on your trip.

  6. Where are you going on vacation! I hope your airline is very careful with you!

  7. I agree with Benny and Lily, I have heard some really scary stuff about bullies and airplanes. Just make sure the airline is very very very careful
