Vinny Update AGAIN - Jeez...

Mom has been a HUGE slacker AGAIN. And once again, I have to write a post about Vinny. This is getting OLD!

Mom just wanted to let you all know he's doing fine after the surgery on his eyes. The vet thinks it was something called "chalazions" which is what the bumps on his eyelids were - and were caused by his tear ducts becoming clogged! The vet wrote up a really long description of what they did, so if you ever think your pug has this problem, my Mom would be happy to explain it all to you, so just contact her. It's always something with this guy! (Always something getting on my nerves and taking my attention away!) They are still waiting for the test results to confirm that is all that it was, and if it was, then the surgery should have permanently fixed the problem. When he came home that night, he was in another daze. He hates anesthesia almost as much as I hate writing blogs about him.

He was actually sleeping like this.

AND he had to wear the cone of shame which I found to be hilarious but Mom and Vinny both found to be a nightmare. Mom was so upset about it she didn't even get the camera out. He also has to have eye drops for 10 days which Mom says is like wrestling a very small, very strong monkey. Mom took him for a follow-up on Friday and they said everything looked great, and she has to take him back to the vet in about a week to get the sutures out of his eyes.


This past weekend Mom's friend Valarie came to visit from Milwaukee. But she was a slacker yet again and didn't take many pictures (of us anyway). But here is my favorite. Look what a weirdo my FOSTER brother is:

You can see my gaze of judgment in the background.

He slept in this position for 20 minutes. He couldn't even blame it on pain medicine. This was about 7 hours after his dose (he got pain meds every 12 hours for the first 5 days).

Valarie brought us Nylabones AND chicken bouillon cubes - she boils her crazy dog Sue Ellen's bones with them! Genius! Of course Mom has been too lazy to try it yet.

OK, that's all for now. Mom isn't feeling very good - she says it's allergies - I say it's probably because Vinny passed on some kind of liver or eye disease to her. I'm convinced he's contagious.

Later friends!

Hi Vito! You crack me up! But seriously, I'm glad that Vinny seems to be on the med, but keep us posted (or have your mom do so as I know it pains you so to talk about him). Hope your mom feels better too...it's this darn St. Louis area and the harvesting of all the crops. It makes my mom's eyes water so bad. Anyway, you totally should have stowed away with Valarie...bones in chicken broth...oh - my - PUG! YUMMY! But you are welcome here anytime, so just stick your paw out for that taxi! I'm going to try and convince my mom to take me out to lunch this weekend...paws crossed!

Hi my friends...
Its so good to hear from you. I am glad that Vinnys eye problem got taken care of.
Poor baby,, he looks sooo miserable sleeping standing up, but then maybe he does not even know hes standing.
The nylabone sound yummy cooked with bullion,, perfect food for the soul.
I hope your mom gets to feeling better, and that her miserys go away.
Nitey nite

Oh Vito, it sucks when other pugs steal the spotlight. Pretty soon Vinny will have all new parts, and you can resume control of the blog. Poor guy, doesn't look fun, if that makes you feel any better? Hope your Mom feels better soon. They say allergies are real bad this fall due to the wet summer. Yippee!
