This cat is far beyond the waiting room and the lap dogs, there’s no backing out now. You can’t run at this point, no one can, but this kitty is attempting to hide. This cat has learned from past experience, it seems, and it knows the lay of the land. And maybe even the fact that the color of its fur camouflages with the wall.
Camouflage seems to be the attempt of the day, as it curls between the wall and cotton balls. It’s a nice try, but it won’t make much difference. Vets are experts, and they usually know all the hiding places in the office, though we can certainly appreciate this cat’s particular attempt.
Nowhere to Be Found
It's pretty obvious someone just received some bad news. Yes, it's time to go to the vet again; and even though this pup is trying his best to avoid going, we all know moping won't solve anything. We definitely applaud this dog's effort, hiding under a blanket, thinking "as long as they don't see my face, it's all good."
We'll give this cutie some points for creativity. It's also understandable, who of us has not wanted to cry and curl up in a ball when we hear a doctor's visit is on its way? We always knew we had more in common with our pets than we thought.
Please Don't Make Me Go!
This pup isn't worried about looking tough when it comes to the vet. Her size doesn't make her brave or wise, she just wants a little understanding as she sits, contemplating her fate, in her "torturer's" waiting room. She may look big and strong, but she's just a little puppy when it comes to going to the vet.
She can't be the only worried pup. In fact, we're sure the waiting room had at least one other dog trying to keep it cool and not panic. All dogs are lap dogs in the vet's waiting room, just visit any one of them and you will see for yourself.
This is a face of betrayal, of realization, of knowing that, even though no one ever mentioned the word "vet," that's where they ended up. Treats, toys, and car rides are some of the best tricks to get a pup to the dreaded vet, and they seem to have worked once again.
The smells, outfits, and tiles are all too familiar now. This is the vet. There is no going back. The distrust is all-encompassing now, but it won't last. This pup will get in the car again, someday. It'll believe in treats, and toys, and be tricked yet again. But that won't be today. It'll need time to forget first.
The Most Manipulative Eyes
Some people think full-grown German Shepards are intimidating, but as you can see in this photo, every dog knows the power of adorable puppy eyes. It's the first line of defense when a dog wants to avoid a vet visit. But usually, the puppy eyes have a rather high success rate.
As owners hold the power, and the car keys, we are often the ones these powerful stares are turned upon. They want help, we can offer it, and we don't. Too soon, they find themselves on the table, the vet smiling, but not in a comforting way. The moment is captured on camera. We feel bad, we do, and those eyes certainly don't make us feel any better.
