What a good boy!! glad to hear he was good and friendly to the vet.
A good tip if your dog is fearful of the vet is to take him/her to the clinic just to hang out. Give treats. Sit in the lobby. If they aren't too busy, ask to take the dog into the room and give him treats there. By giving your dog multiple positive experiences at the hospital, hopefully he/she will be less nervous when having to go in for an exam or treatment.
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
