More Company & Vinny Causing More Trouble...

Mom's friend Veronica came to visit us from Kansas City this past weekend. Mom says we are in the middle of "A Lot of Company Stretch"... Grandma & Grandpa & Trey last weekend, Mom's friend Veronica this past weekend, and Mom's friend Valarie (that crazy dog Sue Ellen-Who-Looks-Like-Carol-Channing's mom) this coming weekend! I like company. Company is so much more fun than my Mom is.

And "Fun" to me is usually just doing this. Here I am on Veronica's lap. She is cozy.

Veronica took this picture of Mom & Vinny. He's so lame. But Mom loves this picture because Vinny never lets her hold him. But for some reason that day he just went limp & let her rub his chest forever.

Me, on the other hand - I mean, I look super cool here on Mom's lap. I look slim & trim, don't I? DON'T I???

Why does Vinny always have to be hanging around when I am just trying to enjoy my Mom's lap??

Of course it wasn't all good. As usual, when company comes to visit, I always end up left at home for some reason. You might have guessed based on Mom's history, that it's September and that means it's winery season. (Actually any season is winery season for My Mom The Wino.) So they left us all day on Saturday!

Mom's usual winery crew including Uncle Michael.

Some of Uncle Michael's friends joined them this time.

Yes. That is my Mom drinking wine out of a rubber duckie. They are super mature.

Anyway. Mom woke up yesterday (Sunday) and saw something strange on the corner of Vinny's eye. It was a red bump. She thought it was weird and I did too. I told her she should call the vet. Because I was really worried about Vinny.

HA! That's so not true and you almost fell for it! I wasn't worried about Vinny AT ALL!! But Mom was still worried about him this morning, and luckily she had the day off from work so she took him to the vet.

Red bump and swollen.

Vinny at the vet (note his left eye)

Turns out, they said they needed to keep him overnight and do surgery first thing tomorrow morning. The dr. said that he has what would be the human equivalent of "sties" on his eyes - 4 more even showed up while they were at the vet (or maybe before but Mom hadn't seen them) including one on the inside of his eyelid. They have to lance them open tomorrow under anesthesia so that they don't break open and cause infection. This might be the reason he's had really, really gross white eye boogers for about a month now. They don't know what has caused it, maybe an allergic reaction of some kind.

Mom said she cried when she left him and he was very sad too. She left his fleece blanket from SEPRA with him so hopefully he would know she is coming back.

Once again, Vinny causing trouble. He's such a pest.

But I miss him. I must admit. Only to you guys though, not to my Mom (Mom you aren't reading this, are you?? You are only supposed to be typing, not listening!). Mom did something super nice for me though because I was searching the house for Vinny when she got home. Since Vinny can't have fun-foods, Mom gave me a pork & sweet potato rawhide tonight since he wasn't here to be jealous. Hank's mom brought these to me when she & Hank came to visit!


Later, friends!

Poor Vinny! It's always something with these pugs, but they are worth it.
Lucky you Vito on scoring something delish. Hope you get better soon Vito!

Hey doggie that is a lot of house guests! All I know is that guests always drop food. Bring them on. By the way your mom looks foxy in the group pic. So WTH with Vinny?? The poor guy just has some bad luck. I've been at the eye specialist this morning and had my eyeballs prodded and all that nasty ointment put in. Let me tell you it was not sexy! Enjoy the treats while the little bugger is gone.

Oh, goodness. That sweet Vinny is in the hospital again? He will be in our prayers. But there's a lot of good things in this post too...your mom finally got to have a cuddle session with Vinny, nice...and you got a yummy treat! Vito, please keep us posted on your minion.

Wilma said...

Oh Vito, I am sorry that poor Vinny's is having troubles again. I remember when I needed eye surgery how mom cried when she dropped me off. I am sure Vinny's will be back tomnormal in no time, and just think, he'll probably have to wear the cone of shame!

We hope Vinny is doing alright...

Pugs & Kisses,

We are sending pug hugs to you and Vinny and your mom. You get used to these new dogs that just make themselves at home in YOUR home. It's okay to miss him, but he'll be back soon.

Minnie and Mack said...

We love company, too.

Poor Vinny...but he is so lucky to have such a wonderful family to take good care of him. Make sure you give him lots of love when he gets home.

Please keep us posted on Vinny's recovery. We have our puggie paws crossed.

Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack

Awww poor Vinny. I always look for Lincoln when he's gone too. Its very confusing for us pugs.
Hope he gets better.

And Lincoln had a hard time being held at first too, but Vinny will get used to it. But don't let him take up your space.
