I was just about to settle down for a morning’s nap when Mom came over to my carpet tree, swept me up in her arms, and stuffed me into my carrier. I was then loaded into the red, mobile transportation unit in the garage. I heard Mom say, “We’re off to your pre-dental exam.” That meant – Crap! I’m going to the V-E-T!
