Owie! Owie! Owie!

So, I had my first trip to the vet today. And it wasn't for shots - those aren't due yet. Yesterday, the whole family was at my aunt and uncle's house. No one knows what happened, but all of a sudden, I woke up in mom's lap and my eye was almost swollen shut! I'm gonna be a guide dog! I need to see out of that eye ball! Mom thought maybe I got a bug bite, so she gave me icky bendryl. But it didn't help. This morning, it was still big and ugly. Mom was scared there was a foxtail, so we rushed off to the vet. But, nope - no fox tail! Yeah! But, I have a puncture wound in my bottom eye lid. How crazy is that?!?! No one knows what poked me, but the vet gave me a shot and some feel good stuff and send me home with get-better pills. Oh - and he shaved my face. I'm not impressed. People talk about getting a black eye, so I thought I was all good & it would blend with my black fur. But, now I have a gray eye. When all the fur is gone, my skin is pretty light! I'll share pictures soon - if you are good ;)

Love and Licks,
Accord

Ow! Sterling had a cut on his eyelid the first day we got him! I know how much it sucks, just don't scratch at it and it will get better.

Puppy kisses!
