And hopefully the last one for quite a while! I'm pretty sure I've paid the vet's mortgage over the past several weeks
Anyway, Lex is 24.8 pounds and 14" at the shoulder, give or take because she really wouldn't sit still and wanted to sniff the measuring tape lol. She's a little bit lanky right now (long body) but the vet said she seems to be developing nice and slowly. She was 12 weeks this past Saturday.
I did have a bit of a problem though. One of the vet technicians (and aspiring veterinarian I discovered today) made a strange comment for the second time. The first time we ever visited the office she made the comment "oh you're gonna be fun when you're older" in a very sarcastic tone. The 8 week old puppy was whining while having her nails clipped. The second visit, we had a different vet tech. Today, she made the exact same comment in the same sarcastic tone because Lex tried to come towards me when her heart was being listened to. So the vet tech restrained her, and she stopped moving and didn't make a peep while she was getting her shots.
So, my question is this- Would you say something to her, to the vet, or not at all? Lex is done with her routine shots/exams etc for a year, so unless something comes up, I won't be seeing her for awhile. The tech is probably 18 or 19, she actually went to the same HS that I did, but was a few years younger than me. Do I chalk it up to age? I just thought it was unprofessional, and unnecessary. This pup has never growled, snapped, bitten, or even put it's little dog mouth on anyone there, so it bothers me. It also doesn't help that on our first visit she also said "I hope you don't grow up to be one of those nasty Shepherds".
Maybe I'm over reacting. What do you think?
