Hi all! Ever since we got to Canada, mom & dad have been somewhat concerned about us doggies getting sick. First, pet health care here is a bit expensive; but for that, they got some pet health insurance for us. I don't know how that works, but they say it's good to have.
Second, we don't have a car, so we have had to choose a vet that's nearby. There's basically only one, so a few days after arriving here, we went there for him to meet us and maybe give us a general check-up.
The vet is scary! a tall guy who screams a lot and speaks only french, so we went in and we were terrified. Luckily he just gave us a look-over and sent us on our merry way, since we were both in tip-top shape.
However, this morning mom & dad noticed I had some green ooze coming out of my left eye. I was kinda trying to hide it, because it's happened before and it means a visit to the vet, and Mathias had been helping me by licking the yucky stuff from my eye. But they caught us red-handed and, seeing my eye, they scheduled a vet visit.
So I had to go again to the vet. It was a nice enough walk on the snow, but once there I was trying to scurry away, and the vet was just like he always is, yelling and booming all the time. He gave me some drops, and I'll have to follow the treatment for 10 days. Hopefully it'll be enough, because, even though the vet is not mean or anything, I still am terrified every time I go there!
Here's to staying healthy!

I hope your eye is feeling better, Tallulah.
