Eye have good news and bad news...

First, let's start with the good....AUBURN won the national championship!!! Whoo hoo! It was a great game! Mom and Dad did a lot of jumping and yelling and it was AUsome!!

My Pre-game warm up with my lucky Auburn collar and Auburn wubba!

Halfway through, the suspense was killing me. Thank goodness for my calming neck pillow! Spoiled?? NAHHH!

We won! Go Tigers! I crashed. It was so much suspense that when it was over, my little puppy brain went to bed!

Okay, now to the bad news. I went this morning for my follow up with Dr. Vet. Seems the infection in my eye went away, but she's affraid I may have early stages of Pannus. Boo!

I'm going back in a month to see the Opthamologist to see what she thinks. Dr. Vet does thing that if it is Pannus, we caught it early before any damage happens and that I'll need eye drops for the rest of my life, but with eye drops I get cheese. So I'm okay with that.

She also suggested that mom and dad protect my eyes from UV/Sun rays with some sunglasses...looks like I'm getting Doggles! As long as they come in pink I'm good.

Dad did laugh, saying now that when we go hiking I'll be carrying a backpack and wearing shades! Total diva!!

I'll keep you posted, but for now mom has some new eye drops to give me four times a day. She needs to stock up on cheese!


  1. Well if the worst is eye drops then we r glad you caught it early but we'll keep our paws crossed that they are wrong. I like cheese...but I LOVE Liverwurst :)

  2. Oh noes, I think you mite want to take moving to Wisskonsin under serious considerashuns. I think they do has more cheese there. You mite run out where you live. Dying to see your pink shades.

  3. I've never heard of Pannus, but it sounds like you guys have it under control. Hopefully you don't have it and it's nothing, but if you DO have it, at least you caught it early.

    Cheese sounds good, too!

  4. Anna, we are so sorry about your news with your eyes but at least your mom and dad caught it early so it can be treated. that's just way too cool!! We think you are a diva anyway but wearing will really be shining!! Great going for you team!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  5. what? you got panties? OHHH- pannus... sorry! my big ears have filled up with snow & ice! yep- cheese for sure!


  6. Congrats on your team winning!

    We never heard of Pannus so we went to read about it. It sounds a lot like what our Dad has in one of his eyes, he may need a corneal transplant one day. It is good that you will see a doggy opthamologist for an exact diagnosis. We hope that whatever it is you can be treated for it and not be in any pain or discomfort. Good luck, Anna.

  7. Ooo! Ooo! I have pink Doggles! They are awesome! You will be the coolest Shepherd on the trail. We'll keep our paws crossed for you to get good news next month!


  8. I agree with Shawnee - can't wait to see the pink shades. I've been trying to justify getting Doggles for the girls for years, AND NOW I FINALLY HAVE ONE!!
    Curious to hear what the opthamologist says...

  9. YAY for Auburn!!! Boo for eye problems. We have all of our paws crossed for you, Anna!!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  10. I'm sorry that Dr Vet had said something slightly less than positive but I'm glad things are under control and you have some new eye drops.
    With or without any doggles on, you are already a true diva!!!

  11. Oh Anna! Sorry to hear this. You are in good hands, we know. And with pink will be one fabulous fashionable diva for sure.

    Sweet hugs,
