Every year as the wintertime starts to warm into spring, we take our dogs to the veterinarian for their annual checkup and booster shots. Normally they get weighed, checked out and the vet gives them their medicines and we’re out of there in no time. This year was a little different, however. We had just had a late season snowstorm that dumped about five feet of snow, so the temperatures were well below what they should have been. Because of all the recent snow there were so many people in the waiting room. What was normally a five minute wait turned into a thirty minute wait. With it still being cold outside, they had the furnace running inside. It got to be so warm in there with all the other people and animals that we decided to take the dogs on a shot walk outside. Our Labrador love the snow, so we let her off the leash to go run through it in the fenced in area outside. After sitting in the lobby with the furnace on what seemed like full blast, it was nice to walk around in the crisp cold air. After about twenty minutes or so we decided to go back inside and check on our progress with the wait. As it turns out, our timing was perfect. Almost as soon as we came back inside, they called us back to the exam room. We got both dogs checked out, vaccinated and given their dog treats, and we were on our way.
