My poor dog...

The wildest thing happened recently. Our Welsh Corgi, Gus, began twitching his right eye.


At first I feard something neurological had occured and that we might lose him also. Because you know, I NEVER worry.


Nor do I exaggerate.


EVER.


However, once we noticed discharge coming from the eye, we thought it was a simple case of doggie pink eye. Yuck... but doable.


Well, after 2 trips to our vet, and his eye becoming very cloudy (like a cataract) we were set to an animal eye specialist.


Yes, such a thing exists.


What did we find? He got a puncture wound to his cornea at some point which introduced a fungal infection. Now we have to medicate his eye 6 times a day. SIX TIMES!!!


But my Gus-Gus is worth it.


I mean really... who couldn't love this...

Oh girl. We would have done the same thing for our dog.
Sweet things, they are so loyal and they look to us to take care of them...

Does he cooperate? My dogs are so anti anything that is different than the normal flow of things.

Yes - he cooperates. Very well in fact... especially when get gets a "Beggin Strip" afterwards. He loves that. :)

His eye is getting much better and has cleared up considerably over the last week.

My husband wants a corgi SO. BAD!! He's BEEN wanting one. One day we'll break down and buy one, but that day is not yet here. :)
