I think we have the only dog that LOVES to go to the Vet. She gets lots of pets, as her fur is extra soft (we think she's part flat-coated retriever) and the Vet Tech is the ONLY person she'll let trim her nails.
Checkup went well, we got six months more heartworm and flea and tick stuff and she got some treats. Weight was 72 pounds, which is good for her (she's not as big as most purebred labs).
She didn't want to leave and ran around all excited for about 10 minutes after we got home.
For 12 years old (as best as we can tell) she's in really good health.
