The visit goes well...both are healthy, Valentine has lost some weight which is good, eyes, ears clear. Valentine is "thrilled" to see the vet...kissing the vet tech and the vet during her exam. Samantha is terrified, shaking and trying to dig her nails into the metal table. Get their rabies, heartworm blood test, etc.
Now we leave....I see a woman getting out of her car so I hold both girls in the vestibule while DH goes to open the car door...we intend to take them out one at a time. Meanwhile the woman decides to have her dog sniff around the bushes outside. DH comes to get Valentine and carry her to the car while I hold Samantha. DH puts Valentine in the car and I start to leave the office; the other dog takes an aggressive stance and Samantha lunges for it and almost drags me to the ground. I pull her back, apologize profusely (the other dog yipped but no harm was done otherwise) and try to get Samantha in the car while Valentine is trying to get out. We "finally" get them both in and head for home.
I'm covered in dog hair and mud...DH's jeans are wet and muddy at the knees...but the dogs are fine.
