Speechless Sundays - Sweet Gracie Rose Visits the Vet

I am always a nervous ninny when I take sweet Gracie to the vet because we almost didn't get to adopt this precious little one. She suffered a stroke while being spayed but, was ultimately released for adoption THE DAY that Ray and I were being 'screened' to adopt her brother, Jack. 

Gracie Rose sat on her new Daddy's lap the entire time the foster mom was interviewing us. I think he fell in love the first minute she cuddled up to him. Her brother was quite the charmer with me and we both (Ray and I) were so confused, we asked to sleep on the decision and ultimately chose them both the next day - ONE month before Covid lockdown!

Fast forward to every vet visit since!  I have been a nervous ninny, worried that Gracie would suffer another stroke while at the vet. She absolutely despises getting into the crate to travel so, naturally, I worry...

This photo is Gracie Rose, checking out the entire exam room at our favorite vet's office, while her brother (Jack Aiden) is getting his blood drawn for his annual physical. Gracie owned that room, walking around, purring the entire time - and this was AFTER she had successfully had her blood drawn! I love this pic of our sweet Gracie - it may be my favorite photo of her (Queen of her doctor's office!) 👑 😻

Have a great week ahead, y'all!

Loved the photos and I get your concerns, Diane is always arranging the Vet visits and I keep thinking $800? $1200? and when she comes home all is good and I ask how much she smiles less than the Amex Bill you spend on food and wine:)Endre

I took two of them and it was $400 and Ray nearly had a stroke, Endre Barath, Jr.!! LOL Rabies shots, complete blood work and a full physical exam. I thought that was pretty reasonable! 😂

God bless Gracie Rose!   She is lucky to have you, as you are her.  Our pets are very special to all of  us.  I have 3 cats, and they are all so very different.

Aww! How sweet! I also have 3 cats (and 2 dogs) so, I have a houseful but, love every minute of being their human, Michael Elliott.

What a great photo - I'm glad the visit went well!

Me too! He was impressed that neither of them had gained any weight. I told him my pets don't get table scraps - maybe that helps?? I don't know but, I'm glad they're not overweight! It's taken us over 4 years to get their big sister's weight down - it's NOT easy, Kat Palmiotti!

I am glad to hear that the visit went well.  I will be keeping Gracie in my prayers for all future visits to the vet, as well as her nervous ninny owner, haha.

Oh, seeing how confident she was there this time will definitely help my anxiety on future visits, Brian England! We appreciate the prayers - always.

Good morning Debe,

I can see why this is your favorite photo of Gracie! I had forgotten about all that pre-covid when you were adopting Gracie and Jack! I can see why you are nervous when taking her to the vet but I think she has it under control!!LOL!

Apr 08, 2024 08:22 AM
Debe Maxwell, CRS

She definitely does, Dorie Dillard Austin TX! I'm so proud of how far she's come.

Debe all I can say is that Gracie Rose seems to have a much better attitude going to the vets, than I do when I am taken to the vets.  🤣

HaHa! I would love to be a fly on the wall for those visits, George Souto🤣🤣🤣

It can be so difficult and stressful for our beloved pets to visit the vet, Debe Maxwell, CRS .  Our cat experienced kidney issues many years ago and he gets absolutely feral if we take him there now.  Fortunately, he is looking great and acting just like cats do nowadays on his prescription feed.

Apr 08, 2024 02:14 PM
Debe Maxwell, CRS

Oh, Cara Marcelle Mancuso, I know EXACTLY what you are talking about! Our Jack had kidney issues in 2021 and he was like a cat I had never met before! It's so sad to see them that way but, once they're home, it's like nothing ever happened. Well, until you try to put them in their crate for the next visit - they seem to have vivid memories of why they don't want to get in there!!

Debe- I love that photo of Gracie Rose!! She looks very self-possessed!  I can remember our Vet visits with our Brittany who was blind. She could sense and smell the other animals so it was hard keeping her calm.

Debe Maxwell, CRS

Thank you and me too, Kathy Streib! I cannot imagine what you all went through with Brittany. Poor baby.
