Chance towel.jpg

At first glance you might think this photo is adorable, and technically it is. A seemingly lovey Chance cozied up in a towel, gazing up at me adoringly while I snap his pic. In reality, we were at the vet and we were forced to restrain him with the towel because the poor Doc couldn't withstand anymore of his vicious attacks. What had she done to provoke such a reaction? She was listening to his lungs with a stethoscope, trying to determine whether or not his recent respiratory infection lingered.

For anyone who haughtily scoffs at the pain inflicted from being "nipped" by a 13lb dog, let me tell you this: pound sand. It hurts so bad I broke the swear barrier, but what can we do? Cat muzzles don't fit and his reaction time is just so much faster than ours!

I've come to the conclusion that Chance is just an angry guy, and there's not much we can do about it. Apparently it's not just him, Carol at SAINTS says this is a common occurrence with the Pekingese breed, so we really can't blame Chance for his temperamental behaviour, we just have to work around it. If only I were clever enough to invent a robot arm that had the ability to administer medical treatments to small persnickety dogs, I would be shockingly rich and Chance and I would have no problems.
