Today I had to get a mammogram and I took Isaac with me. The radiology tech remembered Isaac from when I was there having a stomach x-ray done about six weeks ago. She didn't remember me but she remembered Isaac. It's funny, but that is often the case.
Isaac was really good. I put him in a down stay behind the console
where the tech would be while actually taking the x-ray. She had to
take a total of four different x-rays and had to leave the console to
reposition me, then return to the console, for each one. I asked her
not to talk to Isaac or even look at him when she did so, because I
figured he would take any attention whatsoever as an invitation to get
up and socialize. He stayed right where I told him to under all the
x-rays were done and I called him over to me.
The radiology tech reminded me that I'd let her pet Isaac last time we were there. I took that as a hint that she'd like to pet him again. I told her she could pet him when we were all finished, and Isaac was quite pleased to be told to "go say hi" to her.
