Weekend reruns, part 1

Due to a bunch of school-year-coming-to-a-close things this weekend, I'm doing reruns.

Dr. Pissy's wife has a little black mop of a dog named Fancy. Mrs. Pissy is never without her.

Yesterday one of Dr. Pissy's staff was out, so Mrs. Pissy came in to help. And, of course, she brought Fancy.

Fancy spent most of the time trapped in the break room, but during lunch was allowed to roam the office since there weren't any patients.

After she was cooped up again I brought my 1:00 back, and gave him directions. "Go on back, 2nd room on the right, have a seat and I'll be with you in a sec" (I wanted to get a Diet Coke).

So after I grabbed a can, I headed back to my office. The patient was standing in the hallway.

"Uh, doc, do you know there's a pile of dog shit in your office?"

I laughed the last time you posted this too. But I have to ask, what about patients that have allergies to dander. I would have had an asthma attack before the appointment started if Fancy had roamed the office. Just out of curiosity does having animals in a doctor's office subject you to a possible fine if a patient reported you or Dr. Pissy? I know there's therapy dogs and such but I was just curious. My friend's Neurologist has his bird there ALL THE TIME. I used to use a doctor in the same practice until she and her husband were offered jobs at Rutgers and I could hear the damn thing from the other end of the office! UGH! Glad you at least had your DC before having to summoned Mrs. Pissy to clean up the dog shit. I still have to wonder if all doctors experience the shit (pun intended) that you do! I have shared some of the stories with my own doctors as they just shake their heads. I haven't figured out if it's out of solidarity or thankfulness it's you and not them?

"Are you sure? We don't have any dogs in the office!"

"Why, yes. Yes, I do."

When I read this the first time, I couldn't help but applaud the patient for not behaving like an ass about it. Now I am laughing so hard about it, because of Anon 8:30s comment.

If I wasn't in there to ask for a psychiatric assessment, I might need one after running into that little puppy surprise. Can you spell PTSD?

I don't suppose you ever let Mrs. Pissy back in?

What I'm amazed at, is how very well trained said dog Fancy is. We can all note that he (or she)did NOT poo in Dr. Pissy's office, no way. Hmmm, made his way to Dr. Grumpy's office instead.
