Yes definitely!! Feeling much less stressed :) and he is too, amazing how much difference just a tiny bit of vision makes (and minus the cone of shame). Lucky boy! 

 

The only way I could get a decent pic.. play 'tug-of-war' with his tennis ball :laugh:

 

Am waiting on a new #5 clipper blade.. so his reprieve from baths/clips will soon expire :laugh: 

 

Thanks for all the well wishes :thanks:

(We feel very special)

Oh hi Aunty T :wave:,

 

He is good. His eye has been gunky a few mornings, so we have just finished another course of Doxycycline. I don't think there's any infection brewing, I actually think with all his ball craziness he is getting fluff and dirt in his eye :shrug: and that's the cause.

 

He seems to be able to see a bit better (hasn't walked into anything for at least a week!). 

 

He is his usual happy, ball crazy, food stealing self! :laugh:

 

I'll take a pic when he is finished eating his bone :)

 

Thanks for checking in, we been thinking of you too :thanks:

Hahahahahaha ooh T :walkdog:

 

I can certainly oblige -I had to take my other boof head to the vet for a script last week, so I took a pic of his eye to show the vet (will attach that pic, it only took me 4000 attempts to get a clear one :laugh:).

 

I'll take a nice pic of him this week when I get a moment to give him a little trim & bath. The daddy has been overseas for a couple of weeks for work, and it's been an exhausting time for me with  my feral children :banghead: so the little monkey man is due for his least favourite thing.

 

His eye sight is ok, certainly not back to pre-ulcer, but enough that he is happy. He's not super keen to go walkies though, past the end of our street (maybe 100 metres) is too much and he'd like to go home thanks. He's a bit disoriented by it all.

 

What is most interesting.. Pre-ulcer his eye would be weepy, that under eye area usually wet and brown stained. But so far, no weeping, no brown stains :shrug:

Bless his little heart. Is his eye sight likely to keep improving over time? Hopefully once he adjusts to it a bit more he'll feel more confident to venture out a bit further. :heart:

I think so Snook, they say it will always be cloudy -like looking through frosted glass. I think once the rest of that blood vessel sort of "becomes" the cornea rather than just being stitched over. He's not a super confident dog so any variations to a 'normal day' he is unsettled . I don't know the exact conditions of his previous life, only that he'd probably never left his house/yard, and it wasn't the best care. I think if I wasn't in tune with subtle dog body language cues, I'd probably not notice. He's a stoic little thing, he doesn't give much away.

 

As I was uploading the pic, I saw one of the first pics whoa.. I forgot how big and red those first weeks were. 

 

Thanks for all the well wishes -people in real life don't even send him well wishes! Makes us feel special :walkdog:

 

I just tried to take a pic of him, he's too busy trying to find his tennis ball :laugh:

So here is a pic of Ella being beautiful :heart:

Change is hard on our not so confident dogs at the best of times. Having reduced vision must be a lot to get used to. He's lucky to have you. :)

 

Haha.. Teddy must really love his tennis ball. Ella is just divine. :love:

How good is it looking now... wow!! Go Teddy, you little trooper!

 

As for walkies... if he doesn't want to do it, maybe just playing ball with him should be enough to get his exercise requirements, yes?

 

Pickles and Harper are still sending him their best get well faster woo-woos...

 

Ella is stunning! What a pretty girl. I love those gorgeous eyes...

Aww thanks Pickles & Harper! How are they going without the beautiful golden girl?

 

Yes I agree T, for the most part lots of tennis ball throwing, boxes to chew up to get food, snuffle mats, bones etc are plenty for him. I think the chaos that comes with us having 3 kids too, he really enjoys the goings on of whatever they are up to -and there's always someone cuddle with.

 

Sometimes though, if I have no one to stay home with him, and the others are going crazy without their daily outings (this is usually only when the daddy is away for work), I just have to take him out walkies (he panics and toilets everywhere if left alone), and he hates the car (hates hates hates the car!). 

 

He really is a funny little guy.

I actually think he would love a smaller calm, confident doggy companion as his 'security blanket'. He absolutely takes lead from the other 2 boof heads, they just have much higher exercise requirements!! 

 

Thank you, she's our special girl :heart: she turns 7 this year :party:

Pickles has decided that Zeddy's old bed is hers... I think she misses Zeddy more than she misses Trubs... and Zeddy passed nearly 4 years ago! She's adjusted well to not having Trubs around though... especially as she can now have prime position

 

Harper never ran with Trubs, so she doesn't miss a thing... lol! She's a bitch...

 

I really love the expression on Ella's face... wise beyond her years methinks... and soooo pretty!
