I'm sick *cough* *cough*

Yesterday after I puked, I started coughing. Today, I kept coughing until I gagged. Sometimes I would throw up, but most of the time I just sounded like I was about to. The girl got worried and thought that I might have picked up Kennel Cough, even though I haven't been anywhere near a kennel. She told me to get in the car.
Funny thing is, once I was in the car, my cough disappeared. None. Not a little. And I didn't feel like puking. I guess I will just need to go on really long rides so I feel better.

Wait a second! I know this building. Our vet works here. I don't need the vet. I'm feeling better. Really!!
Once we were inside the vet, I refused to cough or puke. I just smiled and looked healthy and happy. Maybe that way they won't poke anything up my butt!!
The vet didn't buy my act. I saw her head toward me with the butt probe, so I ran and hid under my girl's skirt. I know the vet won't look for me there.
After getting poked and prodded, the vet wanted to X-ray my chest. Even though I didn't think it was very fun, it seemed like it was much more painful for my girl. She made faces like she was going to cry when they gave her this paper.

After they finished the X-ray, I finally caved and started coughing again. My X-rays showed that my lungs were clear, but the vet said that I have broccoli itis. I don't remember eating any broccoli lately, so maybe that means I need to eat more of it?

The vet gave the girl some pills for me to take and she gave me this prescription, since I stop coughing whenever the car is moving.
My girl *claims* she never saw this prescription. Hmmmmmm...... I think she just doesn't want to follow doctor's orders.


Now, let's get working on those car rides so I can get healthy!

Broccoli is great!!!!
Please get to feeling better and tell your mum car rides and Dairy Queen ice cream is the best medicine of all and it won't cost so much either.
