The time came for Rummy to see Dr Siegler, our holistic vet. I've been going to see Siegler since I was 8 weeks old, so it was no surprise to me that Rummy went to see him too. He's a cool dude, and he always gives me treats. He supports the rawfeeding attitude as well, which is really nice, because he doesn't grill Mum for it, and he doesn't subscribe to the over-vaccination mentality, which is crucial.

A lot of vets insist on dogs getting annual boosters, and are against feeding raw, only because they don't know any better, and were brainwashed by the major pet food corporations while they were still in Vet School. Of course, if dogs like me go in more often to get shots, then the vets get more income too, so I'm really glad that Siegler isn't the usual vet off the mill.
"Hey Siegler, that's my brother, isn't he being good for you?" Siegler said that Rummy is one mellow fellow. And yes, he isn't the first other human to mention that about Rummy.
And after the visit and the jabs, we got to wait at the main counter and sniff in all the good treats for sale. We didn't get any though. Mum said we've got tonnes at home.
The vet clinic is also another good place for bitey face rough playing. Rummy and I are always up for bitey face, anytime, anywhere.
