We get a full check over every other week. We don't know why because we're healthy but Mummy insists on giving us a full check over adleast once a month.

First things first, we get our paws checked! Too make sure they are a nice pink or black colour depending on our pads, also that we don't have swollen paws. If our pads are dirty, Mum gives them a quick wash.

She then checks for lumps, Mummy says this is very important, as sometimes lumps are hard too spot and can appear overnight. She says its even important too check herself for lumps so it's not just us :))!

Even our eyes and ears get a check, too make sure theirs nothing unusual going on, and nothing gets missed!

The boys, Ooo they do get it worse. Mum ALWAYS has too clean their *Ahem* perineal Sac, as they have all sorts in their!

We then get our nails done, weighed and then thankfully its over just cuddles now!

Our slave often says it's not only a change in behaviour, she should watch for but sometimes we have visible signs of illness too!

We think our Slaves insane! :)) Is there any other insane slaves out there? rolleyes

Whee think our slave is insane.

As well as examing our feet and ears and all the usual silly hoohah that happens far too much she is now picking us up ALL THE TIME and putting us on her shoulder to listen to our breathing! No sooner have whee settled down for some much needed sleeping and digestion time after the last eating session than she is picking us up again! It never ends! She says that it's because our ginger friend Chamomile went to a place called pneumonia....but whee are fed up with it! Our slave is certifiable!
