Ludwig von Flusspferd is on summer vacation in Michigan. It's considerably cooler there than his hometown of Washington, DC. Since he's too absorbent to wade in a pool, he prefers to lounge in the shade with a mild breeze and a cool drink.
But yesterday his human escort injured his leg and had to go see a doctor for X-rays. So they ventured out into the hot weather. It was kind of scary looking at all the instruments while they waited for the doctor. And in the X-ray room there was a hard table and some kind of apparatus hanging from the ceiling that looked like it'd be good at bonking you on the head.
His human was okay – nothing broken. And Ludwig got to pick a cool sticker on his way out.
