I know it remains foremost in the minds of many Americans so I’ll not keep you in suspense…curling is still going on. Even more shocking to those of us who don’t receive news bulletins coming out of…Wisconsin, the U.S. men are in the gold medal match tonight. Apparently, bending your elbow to get that piece of cheese and pint of beer to your mouth is the best exercise for curling so those cheeseheads are much better than those of us down south because all we do is try and wrangle a piece of sushi in between sipping a giant margarita through a straw. So we should all wish the U.S. team well tonight since 99% of the people who support the sport in America will be drunk in a bar in Green Bay or Oshkosh.
I was actually watching the curling earlier this week (I really wasn’t but it makes the story sound better) when I had to stop and take my dogs to the vet to get their nails done. I take the dogs to the vet and have a tech clip their nails because they hate the sound of a grinder. I don’t know why unless their brains flash to a meat grinder and they think they’re being shipped to Korea to be part of the buffet. While I was waiting I found myself questioning why people became veterinarians as opposed to people doctors and the truth was painful. I can certainly get my dogs in to see the vet in a fraction of the time it takes to get an appointment with one of my doctors. My vet can see the dogs this afternoon but I can’t get a colonoscopy until Armistice Day. Blood tests, X-rays and other tests are done in-house while any test I have done by my doctor results in bills from all over the southland because my chart passed on front of someone’s eyes. I think over the years we’ve slowly taken the humanity out of human medicine. My vets are there scratching my dogs’ ears and throat and I have several doctors now who just come in with an iPad, don’t look at me…and never scratch my ears.
I think animals are more grateful and quite frankly, they are way more worth saving than most humans. Granted, they can’t tell the vet what hurts but that’s probably easier for the vet to handle than when I go to the doctor and say, “My knee hurts…I think it’s cancer.” I’m not saying that vets are just doctors who got tired of listening to us but it’s certainly a theory worth exploring. I think they just like the silence and are willing to suffer a missing chunk of their arm for it. Actually, when one of my doctors pokes a place that hurts, I’d gladly pay another deductible to take a piece out of him. People doctors only know people problems and most of them only one section of the body while vets are schooled to aid multiple species. My cats and dogs go to the same vet but if I tell my knee doctor about my chest pains, I get a blank stare like I’m looking at a cow…which a vet can help. I do have vet friends who specialize in horses and that brings with it another set of problems. I’m told horses are like models…very beautiful because that’s all they worked on and they’re not exactly card-carrying Mensa members.
What is mildly odd is that my dogs act much like humans at the vet’s. Cooper, my smallest dog is pissing himself as we walk to the door so I spend much of the time mopping the floor while he’s getting his nails done. Lucy, my medium dog is female so she’s no trouble as she loves car rides and pedicures. My XL dog, Duke, is 112 pounds and is happy to go anywhere that might lead to a treat but he’s a little high maintenance so I recommend they muzzle him unless they want to start picking up fingers off the floor.
