on't let me scare you but I always thought going to see the doctor for a checkup was a pretty scary situation. In fact, when my mother told me we were going to see Doctor Green, I was not a very happy little dachshund.
' I howled. '
This is not going to be fun!
' When we got to the office all the other little animals waiting there were also pretty unhappy.
an you imagine seeing a duck hanging onto a chair leg and a horse hiding behind a coat on the clothing rack? Actually, I went and found a safe place under a chair.
hat wasn't the worst of it, though. When I went into the doctor's examination room I found a big cow crying. My goodness, I thought he was a patient so I said, '
I'm sure the doctor's not that mean!
' Well, was I surprised when the cow replied, '
I'm Dr. Green!
' What a shock!
h boy, I thought, this is going to be good! But the checkup went very well. When the doctor was finished he gave me a smiley sticker to wear and then my mom and I went home.
ather than be afraid of going to the doctor's office, now I can hardly wait because I always get a sticker for being such a brave little dachshund. I'm sure if you are a little worried about going to see your doctor, my story will make you feel much better and put your mind at ease.
