Of course! No other hound but the bloodhound will do. Count Dracula as a dog owner is a stretch. Not exactly a picture of stability, is he? He wouldn’t make for a very involved pet parent, sleeping all day and waking only at night. Walks might be a little boring, but then again, The Count and his pup will probably have the whole dog park to themselves.
But a bloodhound would remain loyal regardless. Who knows, a bloodhound’s gentle and noble ways might rub off on Dracula and make him a little more agreeable. That’s what man’s best friend is for, or in this case, vampire’s best friend…
We Are All Groot
Can we subscribe to receive updates from the Carroll County Veterinary Clinic? Do they have a brand deal with Samsung yet? They need one, stat. Maybe even a Disney deal while they're at it. Their signage game is on point! This one, in particular, deserves a high-five, a chest bump, and a cool secret handshake all at once.
It makes us want to buy a Samsung phone just so we can call ourselves Guardians of the Galaxy. Naysayers and Apple loyalists can take a hike. Or, we can settle this the old-fashioned way. In the words of Peter Quill, "Dance off, bro."
It's Not Personal
For the uninitiated, most dogs have a simple hierarchy of needs, a la Maslow. Food, sleep, and play are right up there! Everything else pales in comparison. "Are you eating that?" will probably take precedence over "Are you ok?" Maybe the shock and humor of the situation will be enough for you to dislodge the food. If that fails, your dog can try the Heim-lick maneuver. Ba Dum Tss.
This isn’t to say dogs don’t care. They care beyond words, these beacons of love and light. But food can temporarily blind them to other concerns. As for this house? We’re confident a Labrador resides here.
Thanks for All You Do!
Veterinary hospitals with a human touch are angels sent from heaven! Vets already do incredible work, and then they do something like this, which brightens everyone’s day. Plus, they can attest that even animals lose steam over time. Once peppy puppies become old dogs before you know it. Cats aren't free of the aging process, either.
Pet owners can attest to how nice it can be to read something that makes you laugh while waiting at the vet. Everyone there is scared for their pets and anxious beyond belief. It’s always amazing to read something that makes you feel good while you wait.
No Laughing Matter
The pun is excellent, and we appreciate the joke. But this one gives us mixed feelings. The mere thought of a missing dog makes our hearts sink. We’re afraid of laughing too hard lest we manifest something terrible or tempt fate. Often, missing pets do not find their way home.
Someday we will be good sports about it and laugh. Today is not that day. Let this be a reminder to microchip your dogs in case you already haven’t. Sure, they won't enjoy the trip to the vet's, but it's for their own good, and the best option out of some very bad scenarios.
