Our vet can do things to Dagr that he won't let us do to him. It is awesome and frustrating at the same time.
The last round of shots my wife said she was baby talking him... sigh... We bring Dagr in and the entire office comes to greet him. I swear he was a rock star in a previous life.
It's great to have a vet that you and your dog are happy with. It makes life so much easier.
