    I had the most exciting day today!! I was in the run, minding my own business, when I saw Dad come home from work EARLY!! Yippee! That means we get to come out and free range and eat Mom's tomatoes!
    But this time was different... Dad picked ME up and took me inside the house. He set me in a white basket (lined in a towel so my butt wouldn't hurt) and put me in the front of his truck! So exciting!! Dad and I out on the town, hanging out!!
    We drove what seemed like a long way... for some reason, Dad was yelling and saying bad words at other cars... but we finally stopped and a big building. It was called "Yorba Animal Hospital and Day Spa". Day Spa!! Wow! Dad and I are going to the day spa!
    We went inside and there were a lot of dogs. I wanted to make more dog friends and maybe steal the food out of their mouths, but Dad wouldn't let me. I was sick of sitting in that basket, so I jumped out onto Dad's lap.
    The girls behind the counter kept calling me "cute" and said words like, "Awwww...." and "I love that name!" and "I want to pet her!" This was so exciting! Dad must have brought me here to make new friends! All the little kids at the Day Spa gave me pets and kisses so I behaved like a good girl on Daddy's lap!
    Then, Dad took me in a little white room to wait for the "vet". This must be the guy who gives you the massage! We sat there for a few minutes, and a nice lady came in and took a look at me. She said I was so cute and such a good girl... I couldn't wait for my facial!
    But... You know what she did? She pryed my mouth open looking for "gape worms" (at first I thought she said "grape"... she got me excited for nothing) and pulled up my tailfeathers! Doesn't she know that a good girl like me doesn't show off her vent! The nerve!! [​IMG]
    Then, she forced some nasty stuff down my throat called "medicine". The least they could do is make it taste like tomato! She told Dad I had worms and that I have to take that gross medicine for THREE DAYS!
    Here, I thought the Day Spa would be so fun....but it actually really sucks.
    I was so traumitized, I insisted sitting on Dad's lap for the car ride home!

    Now, does THIS look like the face of a girl that's been to the Day Spa? I thought I'd look MUCH more refreshed!

    My girls got tomatoes tonight in an act of sacrificial, unselfish solidarity with Pot Pie. POWER TO THE PULLETS!

    The sisterhood is behind you, baby! (Slurp, chomp, BAWK!) [​IMG]

    Don't worry... Miss Potpie was eating straight off the tomato vine yesterday after her "awful" experience!
    She pretends to not like her meds, but I think she secretly loves the attention. She's an attention HOG! [​IMG]
