    Default Miss Nilla's vet checkup and new "trick"

    So last night Miss Nilla got a bubble bath so she'd be pretty for her vet checkup today. Apparently, Little Miss "I'm too smart for my own good" Nilla has learned to SHIVER at will! She was wet and chilled after her bath and so Daddy wrapped her in a blanket and put her on his lap. A bit later, he moved her, blanket and all, to a chair next to him. She shivered. Daddy put her back on his lap. She shivered. Daddy gave her a treat and tucked the blanket around her more. Later, when silly Daddy tried to move her back to the chair again... she stared at him.... and shivered on an out breath. When it didn't get her a lap, she tried again! Stare... shiver. LOL She was dry. She wasn't cold. She learned that shivering gets attention and occasional treats!!!! Oh man, what do you do with a pug like that?! Too smart!

    Nilla had a good checkup. Nilla has a bit of cataract starting and a bit of plaque on her teeth. But the Vet was very pleased with her weight and said everything looked pretty good overall. For 13 years young, Nilla is still a spunky little spitfire! Vet got to pet Nilla a bit and Nilla even wagged her tail for the vet and looked happy.... but then the vet leaned in too close to shine the light in Nilla's eyes and that was the end of the romance. Warning Snap! Vet said "That was my fault, I know better! With Nilla's last breath she will still warn me away from her face!" Yup! Nilla has come so far from how she behaved when we first adopted her, but she still doesn't like anyone in her comfort zone unless she gives permission first. Oh, and no "baby talk!" She hates baby talk! I think Nilla feels insulted by it! LOL "No one would get up in Napoleon's or Caesar's grill and talk baby talk at him! Treat me like the Empress that I am!"

    I am glad her check up went well, must be all her spunk that is keeping her a young.
    I will have to pay attention, I think Maggie may shiver to get attention too, who knew! A lap and wrapped in a blanket is where a pug belongs, she knows best.

    I'm glad Nilla's check up went well. I didn't know she is 13, it's nice to hear she is in good health and still enjoying tricking her parents :) Pug love!

    I think we have another Oscar-winning performance for best actress in a lead role. What a character Miss Nilla is!! I'm so glad for her clean bill of health. I had no idea she is 13 either.

    Yup, she turned 13 this past August. I think her spunk does keep her young! And I'd like to think that good food and care helps too. We have local friends with 2 pugs aged 13 and 14 and you'd never know Nilla is the same age.... such a huge differences in behavior, coat condition and movement. We do notice Nilla seems to be sleeping harder / more soundly over the past year or so and I think she might be losing just a bit of hearing. But she can still hear a string cheese package being opened from 2 rooms away!
    Oh, and I feel I should clarify. By "warning snap," I mean that Nilla "snapped at the air." She didn't actually bite the vet. She's never done that. She's bit me, but it's when I was breaking up a fight or something similar. And never hard... she actually has a fairly soft mouth. But we still never let kids or strangers pet her.
