This is Reggie on drugs.
No vet's been able to work on the old guy on account of his wicked anxiety and subsequent tendency to ATTACK! teeth bared and scream barking.. all it took were a few appointments getting aquatinted and then a well placed injection to the tush (there's a bill Cosby joke in there somewhere but that would have no place in such a serious post). Then he was happy to have teeth cleaned, two molars pulled, pain meds and antibiotics injected, blood drawn, nails trimmed, ears flushed, penis cream applied.. the works. An hour later he was home in bed recalling the strangest dream. Drugs before hugs.
