Where do you Occupy?

Several of our doggy bloggy pals have already shown their support, but we couldn’t miss the chance to lend our support to Mr Pip’s Operation Couch Occupation

photo.JPGLoyal readers might guess that the fur-girls are big on occupying soft, elevated spaces.  However, in a pinch, ANY human-intended seating device will do, as Queen Sissy so clearly demonstrates here.

No, I – Mama – cannot just move her.  See, she’s in cahoots with the new to us vet who took over her local care.   Supervet wasted no time jumping on the spoil Sissy train, and cooed that Sissy so thoughtfully perched there so she wouldn’t have to get in the floor to check her eye.  Yeah… riiiiiight…

And yes, Sissy’s eye is just fine.  The pressure was on the low side of normal (5-7), but she had numbed it so that the new vet tech could practice using the tool, because Supervet knows Sissy to be a relaxed, patient patient.   For all of her crazy antics, Sis does know when to be serious and be a good girl, and it breaks my heart a bit that she learned so young in life to cooperate fully with vets and techs.

Anyway, do pop over and get the details so you too can participate in Pip’s Occupation!

    […] with a smile, I had a blast!!   But before I wax poetic about my new parade love, pop over and read about Sissy’s vet visit Friday evening and about a cause we’re […]

    Phantom likes to sit on the hard bench at the vet’s too, but no surprise, he prefers the hardwood floors here too:)

    Good eye report.

    Ooooo I have to send a picture to Mr. Pip’s Operation Couch right away! It’s a worthy cause! So glad your vet visit went well Sissy and of course you belong on the highest surface available. What part of “I am the Queen” do they not understand?

    At our last vet visit, as I was leading Tsar onto the exam table, both Morgan and Samba climbed on with him. Dr B had to lift them down and tell them to wait their turns. It certainly beats having a dog that cowers, growls and tries to bite.

  5. Maggie and Mitch Says:

    What great news about your eye, Sissy!
    We wish we could help Pip out but we don’t have any shots of us on a couch – because we’ll not allowed on it!

    Love ya lots

    Having been the proud owner of a basset hound mix, I can vouch for the fact that moving a limp bag o’ basset is not easily accomplished. Sissy is (once again) in charge.

    Great news for Missy Sissy!

  9. Jed & Abby in MerryLand, USA Says:

    We’re so glad Sissy had a good check-up. Having had a couple of bassets [with Danes] in the family decades ago, we suspect Sissy had some help getting up on that bench at the vets. It’s good to be the Queen.

    Love that photo – and I know she got up there on her own. People forget that while they have short legs (and Sissy’s are l.o.n.g!) they have long bodies and that lets them stretch. I think it’s a great photo. Yea for a good, healthy eye check. g
