Chunky went for his yearly checkup and shots yesterday and the vet said he is in good shape but barely over weight at 78.5 which I thought was comical. She says for his height and length she thinks he's fine at that weight.

I bought a practically new Ford Explorer ST and Chunky has taken over the 3rd row seat which is a pain the *** when its time to get out. LOL

Nice photo!

Btw, I've seen that US dog owners take their dogs for "yearly checkups" and always wondered what that involves apart from the shots? Does the vet take any tests or is it just a chat between vet and dog owner? We take Castor to the vet when there is a problem, and once a year he goes in for his shorts, but there are no checkups like that here (at least not at the vets we go to).

I take mine for their shots, and if there are any other problems I call them to the Dr.'s attention. He always weighs them when they go in. If no problems, that's it. [MENTION=9875]cefe13[/MENTION]

They tested Chunky for heart worms, his urine for more cystine stones which he had previous issues with, his weight and they walk them around to check out their physical agility. Plus the yearly shots for parvo, rabies and whatever else they can come up with. They cleaned his ears and gave me a hard time over not doing it more often.

Great car! Congratulations!

Congratulations on Chunky being a Stella healthy bulldog too... he is king of the ride and always has been.

How old is the boy now?

...always wondered what that involves apart from the shots?
It might involve bloodwork
but certainly should be composed of...
Listening to heart, lungs
Checking of teeth, eyes, and ears
Tugging on limbs and bending of joints
Looking over the skin, coat,
Eval of wrinkles, nose rope, and tail
Checking paws and nails
Sometimes trimming nails and cleaning ears if necessary.
Listening to the gut and feeling around for something amiss
Fecal exam, take Vet a fresh turd.
Heart worm test
Eval behavior and response to certain stimuli.

yes he is...and have you considered removing that third row and putting a big thick bed back there for him to lounge on?

I need to look into getting something to put there. This is the first vehicle I have had thats not that easy to keep him in one spot and I don't want to use a crate. He's all over the 2nd and 3rd rows right now
