Peeper Check!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a funtastic weekend! Mine was pretty good. I played with the BP and chilled out. And on Saturday,  I had my first of two yearly visits with Dr. Eye Vet.

I has Pannus, an eye condition that hits us Shepherd's pretty hard. I just have to have two eye drips, twice a day FOREVER!! I don't really enjoy it, but mom says if I don't my eyeballs will fall out! YIKES!  (I don't think this is true, but I'm not taking any chances!)

Dr. Eye Vet is only at our clinic once a month, so going is a big deal. I usually see a lot of other shepherds up there too, and pugs.


Here I am in the waiting room, looking out the portal of freedom!!!





Well, we made it into the exam room. I wonder if Frankie has been here yet for his eyeballs? Oh well,  I'll hide under here, maybe they won't find me?

Hey, what's all that stuff??


A closer look at all Dr. Eye Vet's instruments. Whoa!

She came in and looked me over, then she had to turn out the lights so she could use some little flash-lighty things to look in my eyes. No flash photography allowed, so here's what mom said it looked like:


After Dr. Eye Vet turned the lights on she told mom I looked good (well duh!) and we was doing well with my eyeballs, so they shouldn't fall out or anything.



Okay, so can we go now??? I don't have to see her again until February! Whew! Good news! But mom said I will have to go back up to Dr. Vet soon for my shots and stuff. BOOOOOO!!

  3. That's real scary to think your eyeballs can fall out. You keep taking those eye drops Anna.

  4. Küster and I get to go once a year for free eye exams from the U of I because we're dogs with jobs. He wanted me to share a link with you so that you can see that (he made me type this) even the inside of his eye is sexy! http://talesandtails.com/on-a-magic-carpet-ride/ We don't mind the visits too much and everybody there treats us like rock stars, so it's all good!

  5. We are so glad to hear that your eyes are doing so well, Anna. Phantom gets some ointment in his eyes every day and he doesn't like that either. But better to do it than to suffer, right?

    Have a great week with the BP.
