Tales from a really cute Shih Tzu

The troubles of a little black and white Shih Tzu

I am having really bad allergies. Worse than ever before. So, a couple of months ago, Mom took me to see my favorite Vet. At first, I also had a skin infection and I had to every week for a SHOT!!! Then they put me on a pill and I had to go once a week for a medicated bath. But, I was still itchy. So they put me on 2 pills, one is VERY expensive and I still had to go in for baths every week. I guess I was getting better but I am still itchy. Then on top of that, mom noticed that my right eye was red and swollen and draining icky stuff, so back I went to the vet. She looked and put stinging drops in my eye and found a scratch on my cornea. I had to go home with drops in my eye every 2 hours. I didn't like that at all. After 2 days, it wasn't better so back I went. This time my vet looked and looked, the scratch was gone but my eye wasn't better. She couldn't find anything go she gave me a different medicine. I still wasn't getting better, so back I went again. After a little shot I got very sleepy and they did an extensive search looking for a foriegn object and guess what? They found a FOXTAIL in the top corner of my eye barely polking out of my eye under the top eye lid. The vet pulled it out and it was all bloody. My eye is all better now. My allergies are still bad but better.

My mom thinks I cost too much but she loves me.

You have to watch out for those nasty foxtails. It's a good thing they found it or it could have done serious damage to your eye.

Should we start calling you the Platinum Pup?

Thank you Ko Min. I sorry you are itchy too. I'm doing a little better. I getting a little sick of taking pills but I like the stuff mom wraps them in. Pill Pockets. So, life goes on. I hope I don't have to go the the vet again for awhile.

Your new boyfriend looks like you. He is very cute.
