My weekend....

I want to give you some tips to make your parents weekend exciting!

Tip # 1. On a friday afternoon and when they come from work, don't greet them as you use to do it.

Tip # 2. Refuse to go out for a walkie.

Tip # 3. Next day (meaning saturday), wake up very early but stay there on the bed just like a statue.

Tip # 4. Refuse to move and when you do it, walk funny.

And the final one and not less important

Tip # 5. Refuse to eat...

If you follow all those tips I guarantee a very exciting day...

Next thing you see is, (as in my case), your mom taking a super quick shower, dressing up super fast and taking you to your Vet's place.

Problem is, the events that follow are not funny (for you).

She explains the symptoms to your Vet, then he touches your throat and you cry. Then he checks your temperature... your know how... then he introduces a torture device in your larynx and you cry more. He does not see anything and decides to take some x-rays to make sure there is nothing stuck in your throat. The x-rays show an impressive inflammation. Then you get two shots, one for the infection and one for the inflammation. Your Vet prescribes pills. Your mom pays the BILL and then you go home with an appointment for the next saturday.

As soon as you get home (around 1pm) you demand your food and after that you act like nothing happened!

Next thing you see your is your mom dyeing her hair to cover more gray hair that magically appeared in the last 18 hours!

Believe me... it works!

Well... thinking it better... nope... don't follow my tips.
I am sure there are better ways to have a really exciting weekend!

I still feel a little discomfort but I am doing much much better now.

Have a good night

Oh no Lorenza, are you feeling a unwell again?

Your post made us laugh and we felt so sorry for Veronica.

Lorenza! That is not a good kind of excitement. But I am glad that you are feeling much better thanks to your mom taking quick action. Now you be nice to her and stop making her get the grey hairs. I hope you continue to feel better.

Happy Monday to you and your mom!

More sickies for you, Lorenza? Sheesh. I'm sorry to hear it. I hope you're feeling better after your visit to the vet.

Lorenza your poor mom must have been so upset. Glad that you are feeling better. It cannot be fun to have an infected throat. Take care.

Your friends,

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Oh, Lorenza! I'm so glad you're all right now, but what a bad time you and your Mom had. Get plenty of rest and drink lots of fluids and keep feeling better.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

I hope you are feeling better, and that it is nothing serious! I confess, I don't think my Mom would be super happy with that sort of excitement, especially since she's already complaining the occasional gray hair... Take care of yourself and your Mom!

Hi Lorenza! Heehee! I am glad that you are feeling better now. That is a good way to keep your parents on their toes but I really don't care for the vet either. Heehee! I know what you mean about the gray hair!


Stanislaw said...

I love it! I did that to my folks once and caused my mom to miss a family wedding because I had a "terrible case of bordatella." I was better by the next morning. AWESOME! You are a master of it as well,
I see. We hope you feel better soon!

P.S. - Whoever did that cartoon of you on your banner did an amazing job!!

kalyxcorn said...

Kess And Her Mama said...

Glad your appetite is back. Yr mum must be glad that you're ok!

Wyatt said...

That is a heck of a way to look for excitement. Ooo and you had to go to the vets..there must be a better way! Hope you feel better.


Priscilla said...

Oh dear Lorenza, I was so worried when I started reading your post but I'm so glad that you're feeling much better now.
Hope your mom's gray hair has stopped growing and is treated beautifully now.

Teddy Bear said...

Frankie Furter said...

Oh MY!! I hope you are better today. Not a good way to get attention and excitement.

Madi and Mom said...

Oh Lorenza...did you have inflamed tonsils? Bless your heart....that must have really made your feel rotten. THANK Dogs you have a very observant Mommy!!

Now you need to be extra nice to her after that scare Moms don't like for their babies to be sick.

We are sorry but we did get chuckle out of your post.

Hugs Madi and Mom

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

Oh Miss Lorenza that is an exciting weekend. I'm not sure that I would be reccomending being sick. I sure hope you feel better soon.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Those are good tips and we will use them. Even though we don't go out for walkies, we have other needs that need to be attended to!

Sam said...

Hi Lorenza, I hope that you're feeling much better now. Scaring your pawrents is not so good. My sister and I went to see our doctor on Saturday. My acupuncture treatment went pretty well but my sister had to give some blood for a test. Everything is okay except for mom and dad's wallet :(

Those Elgin Pugs said...

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Oh dear Lorenza, we think there should be much easier ways to make your weekend more exciting. Were you doing a lot of barking and talking to make your larynx all sore? Hope you are doing much better now. We don't like reading that our sweet Lorenza is not feeling well.

Anonymous said...

you are just too much little girl!

Zona said...

While this post was very exciting and great tips... I'm SO glad you're feeling better!!! Maybe next weekend you can come up with a way to make it exciting without causing your mom to have to dye those hairs. I do love to see my mom race around getting dressed in a hurry and be generally frantic though. That IS fun!! Hehe..


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh Lorenza you sure know how to put a scare into Mom.. We can see why she is re-dying her hair..

Kari in WeHo said...

I am glad to hear you feel better but I don't think a trip to the vet is ever a good way to spend the weekend!


Sagira said...

Hope you feel better ASAP!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Excitement, yes. Fun, no. Glad you're feeling better.

Pearl and Daisy said...

Oh, no! Poor you and your mom. It was not a relaxing weekend at all but we are glad to hear that you are doing okay. I (Pearl) had an inflamed sore throat last year too. It was no fun but it cleared up pretty quickly.

But please no more excitement okay? We want a healthy happy Lorenza (& Mom)

Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Holly and Khady said...

Oh Lorenza! That is definitely NOT a good way to freak out your mom!

I hope you get well soon! And, no more vet trips!!!


Jazzi said...

Yah Lorenza,
That doesnt sound like much FUN!!I am really glad that you are feeling better and stay away from that vet office ok?

The Animal Doctor said...

Awww Lorenza, I don't think its funny that you got the sickies again. I hope you can think of something else to spice up your weekened.

P.S By the way, Our Secretary recently developed an addiction to mexican food. She frequently goes to this mexican resto and remembers you each time she bites on a burrito. :)

Marg said...

Your poor Mom, she must have been stressed to the limit. But we are so glad you are all right now. Hope you give your Mom a huge hug for getting you to the vet so quickly. Take care and stay well.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Lorenza! LORENZA!!!!!!!!

Mack said...

Oh no - not the evil VET!!?
I sure do hope you are feeling all better now!


Pauley, Middy, the Mr. or the Mrs. said...

Oh my, you did not eat your food? We hope to never feel so bad that we do not eat our food. Glad to hear that you are feeling much better. We LOVE your smile :)

Bocci said...

We hope you feel better soon, Lorenza-that was a bit scary!

P.S. Hope your mom has all her gray hair covered:-)

Remington said...

I am so happy you are better! Take care, my friend!

Sophie said...

I really do believe that Sophie and Lorenza went to the same school to learn how to be a dachshund princess!

The Teacher's Pets said...

I didn't think you had it in your tiny body to play such an expensive trick on your mom! You surprised us all though! I don't think you should play that game again and instead you should just do the normal stuff on the weekend...routines can be dull but at least you won't have to see the vet again!

ocmist said...

We are so glad to hear that you are doing so much better (since we are backtracking again) and we LOVED your smiling face picture! The problem around here is that it's GRAMMY that is doing that type of thing! Pneumonia and a fall that injured her tailbone and shoulder... LOTS of Dr. visits for HER! We are glad she is better now though and feeling up to letting us do some catch up with our friends. The CCC
