Arrival Story: Cyrus was an abandoned puppy at a local business ... so a friend of ours took him home to foster until he found him a good home...and as you see he has a loving home. His momma Jen moved out after graduating from college and he was not allowed to go because most places will not accept any pit bull breed at apartments. Stupid people...punish the deed not the breed! Cyrus lives here with nauna' and pop and his mom visits weekly with the new addition to the pack Josiah. Josiah always enjoys coming to visit Cyrus .
Bio: Not sure what Cyrus' parents were since he is a rescue dog...but he looks like he might be a mix of pit bull and lab...boxer...shepherd????...we are not sure but he is a very lovable mutt that we adore! Cyrus went to basic obedience classes and passed all of his basic skills. He is very smart but still likes to pull on leash unless wearing his prong collar that we learned to use at classes.
They tell me I am now 6 years old:) My birthday began with a nice long walk after breakfast with mom, dad, and Kiara around town. We came back and played in the yard and the weather was perfect...not too hot, not too cold...I love Fall! After that the humans went shopping and when they returned we all settled onto the sofa and loveseat for some reading and napping. Mom just read the book: The Lost Dogs - Michael Vick's Dogs and their tale of Rescue and Redemption....a must read for all you pup pal humans. After reading and some z's it was grub time and then CUPCAKES. I was super excited that mom and dad did not make it to our pet bakery for dog cookies and we actually ate real mini cupcakes..aka HUMAN Food:) YUM YUM! Mom and dad sang Happy Birthday to me and I got embarrassed and displayed my usual goober grins...but guess what? I STILL HATE BIRTHDAY HATS...yep...a woo woo woo. I had a great day celebrating another year:) Thanks for the birthday wishes and rosettes...Wuv woo all much!
Seems I have had an allergic reaction....this morning it was not just my eye but I had whelps and pustules all over my head... no wonder I was itching myself to death. Vet thinks it is a reaction to my food Canidae that just recently changed their formula!!!!!! I MUST be allergic to one of the new ingredients in the new CANIDAE!!!!!
I am eating California Naturals for allergies and also taking three Benadryl every eight hours for itching and a strong antibiotic to prevent infection from scratching.
MOM is really upset with Canidae changing there formula and not even telling customers about the change!!!! Also she is not happy that Diamond Company is manufacturing it! WHY did they change the formula....we never had one problem with the old formula!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY MESS UP A GOOD THING???????????
I have a bad eye. Mom first thought it was a tiny scratch on the upper lid from Joe and I playing tag the other night. (Sometimes Joe runs up and play nips me on the face) She cleaned the tiny scratch with saline eye wash and a cotton ball. I continued to rub my eye on the edge of the sofa blanket making it red and very irritated so mom called the vet to get an appointment. I have tried to self mutilate above the eye with my paw today while she was at work and funeral home this evening making it even more red and adding a few more scratches...which now makes mom wonder if Joe even scratched me or if I scratched myself originally with my paw itching my eye....I still have my dew claws and it makes a magnificent scratching tool that mom says aaANnnNNN each time she catches me scratching. I am off to the vet tomorrow. Mom is stressed because my normal vet is not going to be there tomorrow and I will be seeing a new vet that we have not seen before. Hopefully things will go well and it won't be a big deal. I heard mom say I was getting a Rabies shot too..that was suppose to be after Christmas but they will probably go ahead and do that too tomorrow:(
Itchy Eye Cyrus
