Just checking on you all to see how you’re all doing. Hope Myrtle is getting less wiggly with the meds now that she’s home and anesthetic is wearing off. How’s she doing with Frankie?

We should nickname her Cookie monster 🤣🤣

Sending you all hugs and much love ❤️

Yeah, the Cookie Monster is finally sober and doing well (knocking on wood)!.  😁😁 

She is still masterful, truly masterful, at avoiding drops (actually gel).  vut I’m smearing in somehow.

Frankie is thrilled to have her home…such sweet pals.❤

Omd i know it Sally 🤣🤣 i think i spend as much time applying eye drops to Mitchell’s cheeks as i do his eyes 🤣🤣🤣

It’s def a battle of the wills but we get by. He’s finally kind of getting that it makes his eyes more comfortable but if I’m not down on the floor with him forgetaboutit🤯🤯

I figured they would be thrilled to be back together ❤️❤️❤️ i love how they are best buds!

So glad to hear that she’s recuperating well, please give her an extra belly rub for me ❤️❤️

Such a sweet picture! Symbiotic bliss ❤️❤️ I absolutely love the cookie story. I bet the vets were cracking up. 

Long ago, Pie used to get constant eye infections as she had ingrowing eyelashes, which were ultimately removed. Physically, this did not present much of a problem as she was a much smaller bundle of love (about the size of the cookie monster’s head) and although a trembling Pie, a pretty compliant one. I did find I preferred the gel to the drops though, as it seemed to stay in longer and was just more effective. I’m sure if you are smearing it I somehow, enough is getting where it needs to go. 

Love to all!

Hey Sally,

I did a vid of Obie getting his eye meds today.

Remember that Obie is a pro, he has been getting at least two ointments or drops twice a day for more than 8.5 years.

I don’t actually touch his eye with the tip of the ointment- it’s a little hard to see but I’m just wiping the ointment into his eye.

I hope this might help you a little, at least there are Pugs and Mutts crunching treats!

So sweet of you Karen to do this for Sally and others who may need this at some point!  Obie for sure is a pro!  I love how he knows when he is done and jumps right up like ok that’s it 😂.  This isn’t his first rodeo lol.

Thank you Karen for posting.  For those who haven’t had to do this it is very informative.  I have a method to the madness too.  Hopefully I can help Sally out in May 🙂

Thank you ALL for ….for….being YOU❤

Merry Myrtle had her two week check  up today after her gifted surgery and her eye pressure is great!  One eye is at 20, one at 12.   Within normal range!!

And…tee..hee…. he had such a hard time getting the drops in to numb her eyes before the pressure  test.  It’s  so wrong of me to be tickled, but it does tickle me!! 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣  And this was with me helping him!!!😎   He said something like, “she just will NOT  let me do this….and I’m really good at it too!!  And she’s  REALLY good at not allowing it!!”  Pretty sure he used half the bottle on just trying to get drops in one eye.    Shhh….tee hee…..I so proud 😉

Going back in six months for a check up.  She enjoys the trips, the attention and the Puppacino!!

She IS my sweet Vlind RockStar and her personalized harness is quite the conversation piece.  

Love to all!!!

Hi Sally – glad to see an update, I was wondering how things were going. It is funny that the vet had so much trouble with the drops! Do you still have to do this for her? For how long, forever? How are the other 2 doing? How is Nellie doing without her side-kick? And da hound dog, how is he? Take care, hugs to all
