My poor little dog has had to have an eye removed.  On Monday she had a run in with another dog.  Shes currently asleep in her big elizabethan ruff so Im taking five to apologise for late replies and stuff. Phil Im not ignoring your email I just havent had five minutes to myself to reply yet but I will :O)

Basically we were out on the grass, both dogs were on leads and the other dog snacked at her but unfortunately hit her eye.  Im not blaming him cos in situations like that I always think its the owners fault for not socialising the dog properly when theyre little.  The same dog is lovely with people he just hates other animals.  Anyway at that point everything seemed to turn into a horror film.  My poor puppys eye was just a mess and in all honesty I completely panicked.  To see her sweet little face looking so terrible is one of the worst things Ive seen in my life. Fortunately my daughters finacé could drive me to the vets (with girl child obviously) so I could comfort the dog in the back.  The vets were brilliant,  took her straight in and made her comfortable as they could and that afternoon she had an op to have her eye removed.  When my husband and I went to pick her up the vet warned us to prepare ourselves cos she was looking worse for wear,  but in all honesty she had to look better than she did on the way there.  So now shes stitched and bruised and shaved,  taking anti biotics and pain killers but asleep which is probably the best thing for her.

At the moment when shes awake we have to watch her like a hawk cos in her doggy daftness she has no idea that scratching is a really bad idea and it seems to be all she wants to do.  Being a bit of a doggy contortionist Im pretty sure she could get to her face even with the collar, and I dont think she understands why shes not allowed to scratch which is one of the great joys of her life.

I think if we can get her through the next couple of weeks without any mishap shes gonna end up looking like a teddy thats lost a button eye. Im just happy shes still with us.

I think thats enough serious for now so Ill leave you with a couple of things that made me smile…

  1. Sorry to hear about your dog Daffy, I hope she gets better soon!

    Unsocialised dogs are the bane of the world – people have no idea how to train them! 😦

    Love and hugs always!

  2. Hi hun! 🙂

    Just caught your comment! 🙂

    I agree about not having a cuppa first thing in the morning! 😦

    The blood test went OK, but the kid I helped was in bad shape – she went a lovely shade of yellow! 😦

    In a room full of people I was the only one who noticed she was in trouble! 😦

    Thanks – The background is art from ‘Fallout 3’ which is a darned good game, just full of killing things which I take no pleasure in…

    Yeah I’m feeling better and you’re right about the weather – it was bloody cold this morning! 🙂

    Love and squishy hugs!

  5. I have clicked the like because I like the idea that your puppy has a second chance and as he is with someone that loves him then all the better 🙂 I do hope that he is doing well and more than likely he will be up to all sorts of mischief 🙂 And that is lovely too 🙂

    Have a very nice Christmas Daffy 😉 🙂
